PREGNANCY STATISTICS

Children born in Nigeria have down syndrome.

A pregnancy test can tell whether you are pregnant by checking for a particular hormone in your urine or blood.

The hormone is called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). HCG is produced by the placenta after a fertilised egg implants in the uterus. It is normally made only during pregnancy.

 

 

The more prominent signs and symptoms of pregnancy include

  • Missed period
  • Tender, swollen breasts.
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Increased urination
  • Fatigue

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are still unsure about this test, here are some questions that we usually get asked.

Still need answers?

Am I pregnant?

The earliest and most reliable sign of pregnancy is a missed period. If you have a regular monthly cycle, normally, you get your period about four weeks from the start of your last period.

When can I find out the gender of my baby?

  • Ultrasound examinations conducted between 18 and 20 weeks may be able to identify the gender of the unborn baby.
  • There are also advanced tests that can use blood samples collected from the mother as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy to help identify the gender of your baby.

 

When will I feel my baby move?

Your baby’s first movements (called “fetal quickening”) will usually occur between 18 and 22 weeks, though some women feel movement prior. Most women describe these movements as “flutters” or “bubbles.”
