It's time for her to: See an OB to verify a positive " home" pregnancy test. For counseling & ob, go with her to a planned parenthood free clinic. She needs to be on Folic Acid supplements & prenatal vitamins if she's pregnant & plans to continue the pregnancy, which is her choice to make, it's also important for her to avoid alcohol, tobacco & drugs/meds, as the fetal brain starts forming 3 weeks after conception.
