Thinking about becoming pregnant

On average, how many days of the month is a woman most fertile?
6
12
28
30

The answer is 6. 

When it comes to getting pregnant, timing is important. In order to figure out when you’re most fertile, chart your menstrual cycle for a few months and record how long it lasts. Next, subtract 18 days from the length of your shortest cycle, which will provide for you a date when you’re most fertile. Next, subtract 11 days from the length of your longest cycle, to calculate the last day you’re likely to be fertile. Having sex within that time period will give you the best shot at conception.

True or False: Only pregnant women over the age of 40 need to undergo genetic testing.
True
False
The answer is false.
Genetic screening tests may be recommended before you start trying to get pregnant, or very early on in your pregnancy based on your family history and medical history. Some genetic conditions are more common in people of specific backgrounds. If your baby is at higher risk of developing certain conditions, your doctor may recommend specific diagnostic genetic testing.

True or False: If I’m over 40, I’m probably too old to get pregnant.
True
False

The answer is false.

Women over the age of 35 are considered of “advanced maternal age.” And while the chances of conception decrease with age, and the risk of miscarriage increases, it is not impossible. In fact, females over 40 are the fastest growing segment of pregnant women.

A “normal” pregnancy lasts for:
32 weeks
38 weeks
40 weeks
50 weeks

The answer is C.

An unborn baby spends around 38 weeks in utero, but the average length of a pregnancy is actually 40 weeks. Pregnancy is counted from the first day of your last normal period, not the date of conception (which generally occurs two weeks later). The weeks are grouped into three trimesters.

True or False: A pregnant belly can give insight into the gender of the baby.
True
False

The answer is false.

Folklore says if a mom carries her baby low, she’s having a boy, and if she carries the baby wide, she’s having a girl. In reality, the way you carry a baby has nothing to do with the sex. Instead, it is simply how the baby positions himself/herself.
