Are You Pregnant and Feeling All the ‘Feels’?

Are you pregnant and feeling all the feels?

Do you ask yourself, “Are these feelings normal?”

Pregnancy produces a lot of different hormones which can cause mood swings during pregnancy. These mood swings can be normal for pregnancy, but sometimes they are a sign of a mental health problem. Depression and anxiety are common during pregnancy and after pregnancy. You are not alone! One in eight women will experience postpartum depression. You should talk to your health care provider if these feelings continue past a couple of weeks.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) says:

“Depression symptoms include:

· Having a lasting sad, anxious, or “empty” mood.

· Feelings of hopelessness or pessimism.

· Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness.

· Feelings of irritability or restlessness.

· Loss of energy.

· Problems concentrating, recalling details, and making decisions.

· Difficulty falling asleep or sleeping too much.

· Overeating or loss of appetite.

· Suicidal thoughts or suicide attempts.

· Aches or pains that do not get better with treatment.”

Depression and anxiety is treatable during pregnancy. It is important to talk to your health care provider about your concerns and how you are feeling. Help is out there and easily accessible!

Things to do to help process and work through your feelings:

· Exercise with walking.

· Get outside and get fresh air.

· Eat a healthy diet with lots of fruits and veggies.

· Talk to a friend.

· Discuss with your health care provider.

· Make an appointment with a counselor.

 

Each of these things can make a drastic difference in your mood, and overall outlook, during pregnancy and even post pregnancy. If one doesn’t work, trying a new one just might! You are on the right path to a healthier you.

When Habits Hurt

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken” Samuel Johnson

 

For discussion, let’s say that you have been engaging in sexually risky behavior that has led to an STD or unintended pregnancy near Snellville, GA.

 

Call or text 770-338-1680 to schedule STD testing. 

Obria Medical Clinics has low-cost testing and treatment.

 

Maybe you are asking, “How did I get here”? or “Why is this happening to me”? Are you struggling to untangle the mess that has been left in the wake of engaging in risky behaviors?

 

Let’s break this down. Chances are you have been engaging in sexually risky behavior for a while. Let’s start with experience. Your experience is something that you do regularly (engaging in unprotected sex). You also observe that this same behavior is going on around you regularly. So you form assumptions about having unprotected sex based upon these experiences and observations (Everyone I know is engaging in this same type of behavior). Based on this assumption you conclude (Having unprotected sex is normal because everyone else is doing the same thing). From these conclusions, you form a belief (Having unprotected sex will not lead to any negative outcomes for me because everyone else is doing the same thing). So, you justify having unprotected sex based upon your beliefs. Have you ever noticed that the more times you do something, the easier it becomes? There is a reason for that.

 

Call or Text 770-338-1680 to schedule a Life Coaching Session at

Obria Medical Clinics near Snellville, GA.

 

Our brains are wired so that anything we do repeatedly is stored in our lower brain, where our actions get programmed subconsciously (on a level that we are not consciously aware of). When an action or behavior is repeated, again and again, it becomes unconscious. It is like brushing your teeth or tying your shoe. You no longer have to think about doing it because it is stored in your lower brain. The bad and the good thing about habits is that they allow you to not consciously think, and that frees up brainpower to think about new and different things. The good news is that you get to think about new and different things. The bad news is that the more times you engage in risky behavior the easier it is to do it again and again while giving it very little thought. If risky behaviors have become a habit for you, it feels natural to engage in them with no consideration of possible negative consequences.

 

Over time, you might become like the proverbial frog in the kettle. As the story goes, a frog is dropped into a pot of cold water and placed on a stove. The stove is turned on, the heat is incrementally increased, and gradually the water’s temperature rises. The rising temperature is so subtle and so pleasurable that the frog misses its chance to jump out. When he realized that he was boiling to death, it was too late. Seemingly harmless actions can sometimes lead to habitual patterns which may result in dangerous outcomes.

 

If you are concerned about the choices you are making, Obria offers life coaching to help you attack the obstacles you may be facing.

 

To schedule an appointment, call, or text 770-338-1680.

Pre-Abortion Safety Checklist Gladstone-Jennings Lodge, OR

Pre-Abortion Safety Checklist Gladstone-Jennings Lodge, OR

Ending a pregnancy is never an easy choice. If you’re considering abortion, it’s natural to have questions and concerns. You’re not alone. Read on for a pre-abortion checklist and the necessary steps to take before making an abortion decision. In addition, Obria Medical Clinics-Gladstone-Jennings Lodge offers private, pressure-free abortion education and consultations. Our services are confidential and offered at low or no cost to you. Call Obria Medical Clinics-Gladstone-Jennings Lodge at (503) 908-1861, or schedule your appointment.

Step 1: Confirm Your Pregnancy

While this may sound like an odd question, are you sure you’re actually pregnant? Getting an ultrasound can be an important next step in evaluating all your pregnancy options.

We offer pregnancy verifications in Gladstone-Jennings Lodge, which are determined by the date of your last menstrual period (LMP). Some doctors or clinics require pregnancy verification before allowing you to make an appointment with them regarding your pregnancy. This pregnancy verification is the official document that serves as the proof of pregnancy for insurance companies; community agencies that provide services like the W.I.C. program, employers, and will be needed if you obtain an abortion.

Most importantly, remember you are not alone as you consider your options. Obria Medical Clinics is here to empower and equip you to make an informed decision. The earlier you know, the more time you have to plan.

Step 2: Verification Ultrasound

Once your pregnancy is confirmed, you then need to confirm that it is a viable pregnancy; that the pregnancy is healthy and will carry to term on its own. You might not know that 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage on their own, with the majority of them occurring during the first trimester of pregnancy.

The best way to ensure that you have a viable pregnancy is through a verification ultrasound.  Ultrasounds tell you the location of your pregnancy (to ensure it’s not an ectopic pregnancy) and the approximate gestational age of your pregnancy, which determines what abortion procedures are available to you.

At Obria Medical Clinics limited obstetrical ultrasounds are performed to:

  • Confirm pregnancy
  • Detect fetal heartbeat
  • Determine fetal age
  • Determine due date
  • Determine location of pregnancy (intrauterine/ectopic)

The ultrasound examination will not diagnose gender, abnormalities, and/or problems.

Step 3: Learn About Your Abortion Options

There are two types of abortion procedures: medical and surgical. If you are less than 10 weeks along into your pregnancy, medical abortion (more commonly known as the abortion pill) is available to you. After 10 weeks along, the abortion pill is not medically allowed; surgical abortion options, such as suction and curettage (S&C) or dilation and evacuation (D&E), are then offered. In S&C abortions, a suction machine and a curette — a thin, loop-shaped knife — are used to remove the fetus from your uterus; this is the most common abortion procedure. For D&E abortions, the same tools are used in conjunction with forceps, as this procedure is typically only performed on women with advanced pregnancies.

The cost of abortion will vary based on several factors including your insurance coverage, the location of the provider, and how far along you are. If money is a concern, remember we offer abortion education and a verification ultrasound at low or no cost at Obria. Call (503) 908-1861 to schedule.

Step 4: Learn About the Side Effects

Lastly, you should be aware of the side effects and risks of abortion procedures. Surgical and medical abortions share some side effects, such as abdominal cramping, pain, nausea, and heavy bleeding. However, surgical abortions are more invasive. In rare cases, the procedures can cause damage to your uterine lining or cervix, which may make it harder for you to become pregnant in the future.

Before you have any elective procedure it’s important to know the potential impact it could have on your body and future health. Here we’ve compiled the latest research on the impact of abortion. Risks and side effects vary by the type of procedure and how far along you are.  Part of these feelings are due to the hormonal changes that occur during and after pregnancy, but abortion can take a mental toll as well. Often referred to as Post Abortion Syndrome, its effects are different for each woman and can present in many different ways.

Step 5: Contact Obria Medical Clinics in Gladstone-Jennings Lodge, OR

As with any medical procedure, it’s important you have all the facts and risks before making any decisions. At Obria Medical Clinics, our nursing staff is available to discuss with you any questions you may have regarding having an abortion, barriers to continuing a pregnancy, as well as abortion procedures and physical and emotional risks associated with abortion. We are here to educate you on all your options so that you can make an informed decision. It is your pregnancy, your right to know, and your decision. If you’re considering abortion and want to learn more, we’d love to meet with you. Call Obria Medical Clinics-Gladstone-Jennings Lodge (503) 908-1861 or schedule your appointment.

Std Testing & Treatment in Lawrenceville, GA

Std Testing & Treatment in Lawrenceville, GA

When Habits Hurt

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken” Samuel Johnson

 

For discussion, let’s say that you have been engaging in sexually risky behavior that has led to an STD or unintended pregnancy near Lawrenceville, GA.

 

Call or text 770-338-1680 to schedule STD testing. 

Obria Medical Clinics has low-cost testing and treatment.

 

Maybe you are asking, “How did I get here”? or “Why is this happening to me”? Are you struggling to untangle the mess that has been left in the wake of engaging in risky behaviors?

 

Let’s break this down. Chances are you have been engaging in sexually risky behavior for a while. Let’s start with experience. Your experience is something that you do regularly (engaging in unprotected sex). You also observe that this same behavior is going on around you regularly. So you form assumptions about having unprotected sex based upon these experiences and observations (Everyone I know is engaging in this same type of behavior). Based on this assumption you conclude (Having unprotected sex is normal because everyone else is doing the same thing). From these conclusions, you form a belief (Having unprotected sex will not lead to any negative outcomes for me because everyone else is doing the same thing). So, you justify having unprotected sex based upon your beliefs. Have you ever noticed that the more times you do something, the easier it becomes? There is a reason for that.

Our brains are wired so that anything we do repeatedly is stored in our lower brain, where our actions get programmed subconsciously (on a level that we are not consciously aware of). When an action or behavior is repeated, again and again, it becomes unconscious. It is like brushing your teeth or tying your shoe. You no longer have to think about doing it because it is stored in your lower brain. The bad and the good thing about habits is that they allow you to not consciously think, and that frees up brainpower to think about new and different things. The good news is that you get to think about new and different things. The bad news is that the more times you engage in risky behavior the easier it is to do it again and again while giving it very little thought. If risky behaviors have become a habit for you, it feels natural to engage in them with no consideration of possible negative consequences.

 

Over time, you might become like the proverbial frog in the kettle. As the story goes, a frog is dropped into a pot of cold water and placed on a stove. The stove is turned on, the heat is incrementally increased, and gradually the water’s temperature rises. The rising temperature is so subtle and so pleasurable that the frog misses its chance to jump out. When he realized that he was boiling to death, it was too late. Seemingly harmless actions can sometimes lead to habitual patterns which may result in dangerous outcomes.

 

If you are concerned about the choices you are making, Obria offers life coaching to help you attack the obstacles you may be facing.

When Habits Hurt

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken” Samuel Johnson

 

For discussion, let’s say that you have been engaging in sexually risky behavior that has led to an STD or unintended pregnancy near Sugar Hill, GA.

 

Call or text 770-338-1680 to schedule STD testing. 

Obria Medical Clinics has low-cost testing and treatment.

 

Maybe you are asking, “How did I get here”? or “Why is this happening to me”? Are you struggling to untangle the mess that has been left in the wake of engaging in risky behaviors?

 

Let’s break this down. Chances are you have been engaging in sexually risky behavior for a while. Let’s start with experience. Your experience is something that you do regularly (engaging in unprotected sex). You also observe that this same behavior is going on around you regularly. So you form assumptions about having unprotected sex based upon these experiences and observations (Everyone I know is engaging in this same type of behavior). Based on this assumption you conclude (Having unprotected sex is normal because everyone else is doing the same thing). From these conclusions, you form a belief (Having unprotected sex will not lead to any negative outcomes for me because everyone else is doing the same thing). So, you justify having unprotected sex based upon your beliefs. Have you ever noticed that the more times you do something, the easier it becomes? There is a reason for that.
