A pregnancy test is the way to know for sure. If it is too soon to get an accurate reading, then pay attention to the following signs of pregnancy:
- Frequent urination
- Aversions to foods that you normally love
- Morning sickness
- Breast swelling and tenderness
- A missed period if you are very regular with menstruation.
The average pregnancy lasts 280 days from the last menstrual period, or more precisely, 266 days following your last ovulation cycle (or approximately 40 weeks).
This process is more of an estimation than an exact or definitive date of conception.
An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, transmitted through the abdomen via a device called a transducer.
With prenatal ultrasounds, the echoes are recorded and transformed into video or photographic images of your baby.
The ultrasound can be used during pregnancy to show images of the baby, amniotic sac, placenta, and ovaries.
Major anatomical abnormalities or birth defects are visible on an ultrasound.
However, Go Life ultrasounds are limited to showing a viable pregnancy and life-confirming information.
FAQ For Men
All of these landmarks will be marked up against the first missed period:
- One week later, the baby’s heart starts to beat.
- Two weeks the baby is developing systems such as: the circulatory, digestive, nervous, reproductive, urinary. Even though the reproductive systems are developed two weeks after the first missed period, the gender is instantly defined when the sperm fuses the egg.
- Four weeks later, the tissue in the uterus can be microscopically identified as a full 46 chromosome human. Although there are 46 chromosomes at conception, not every cell has received that information at conception. It takes about 4 weeks for these sex cells to build the blueprint that will become your baby.
- After 2 missed periods, the baby has a 3 part brain and the baby has nearly all of the organs that will develop inside the mother’s uterus.
