You’ve stared at the pregnancy test in disbelief. How can it say “Pregnant”? That’s just not possible. But if you’ve recently had unprotected (or maybe even protected) sex, it is possible. You could be pregnant.
Even though you’ve received a positive test result, there is a possibility you are no longer pregnant. Experts say up to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. Since many women don’t even know they’re pregnant when they miscarry, the percentage could be higher.
How do you know if your pregnancy test is giving you the correct results? At BsideU for Life, you can receive free lab-quality pregnancy testing. If it’s positive, your next step is a free limited ultrasound.
Ultrasound will tell you if you’ve already miscarried or if a heartbeat can be detected. Plus, you’ll find out how long you’ve been pregnant and the location of your pregnancy, giving you more information about your options.
Every pregnancy is divided into three trimesters, a period of 3 months. Trimesters are measured from the first day of your last menstrual period. If you are in the second trimester, your pregnancy is anywhere from 14 to 26 weeks.
You have several pregnancy options in your second trimester. Whatever option you choose, your decision will be life-changing, so get as much information as possible about each. Your three options include making an adoption plan, choosing to parent, or having an abortion.
As of this article’s writing, abortion is completely banned in Kentucky. To obtain an abortion, you need to travel to another state. However, if the mother’s life is at risk, she can receive an abortion in our state. Get the facts about abortion procedures, side effects, and potential physical and emotional risks before making this decision.

Making an adoption plan for your child is a challenging yet selfless choice. It means you are putting the needs of your child first.
