How Pregnancy Occurs?

There are many different conditions that affect pregnancy in women. The first thing to know is that the fertilization of the egg is a very complicated process. It is very important even in which time interval the couples who want to have a pregnancy of their own desire experience an unprotected and regular sexual intercourse.

In women, the menstrual period, which is seen regularly every month in the preparation of the body for pregnancy, has a great contribution. During this period, the matured and cracked egg settles in the fallopian tubes ready for fertilization. In the meantime, the secreted estrogen hormone supports the thickening of the uterine wall and the attachment of the embryo to the uterus after fertilization.

The fact that the egg placed in the fallopian tubes during pregnancy can remain alive for 24 hours in order to be fertilized has made it important to follow the ovulation time of women. However, the male reproductive cell sperm can stay alive for up to 72 hours and fertilize the egg during this process.

In the light of this information, the ovulation period of the woman should be followed for the formation of pregnancy and sexual intercourse should be experienced in this period. This situation, which falls on the 14th day of the menstrual cycle, which occurs every 28 days on average, may vary depending on the length of the person’s menstrual period.

It would be the best behavior for women who want to get pregnant to follow the menstrual cycle correctly, to determine the ovulation period clearly and to get support from the Obstetrician in the process in order to have sexual intercourse during this period.

Pregnancy Symptoms

Pregnancy symptoms differ according to the genetic structure and living conditions of each individual. The physical symptoms that begin 2 weeks after sexual intercourse, which provides fertilization in each expectant mother, begin to change over time.

The similarity of the symptoms they show in women during menstruation and pregnancy makes it difficult to distinguish between these two conditions. However, the most common pregnancy symptoms in women include nausea, sensitivity to smell, frequent urination and loss of appetite.

Pregnancy Calculation

After women learn that they are pregnant, the situation they are most curious about is when the pregnancy process occurs. Expectant mothers who want to spend the pregnancy period, which lasts about 9 months and 10 days, in a healthy way and who wants to hold their baby in their arms want to know the start date clearly in order to follow this process day by day.

The initial period of pregnancy is based on the last date when women menstruate. With the Pregnancy Calculation method made with this technique, the day of birth can be determined in a healthy way. In other words, the formation of the pregnancy status and the approximate determination of the date of birth are taken into account on the first day of the last menstrual period.

In the Pregnancy Calculation process, there is a reason why the first menstrual day is taken as the basis and not the sexual intercourse and fertilization period. In this process, taking into account that women may not know the date of sexual intercourse clearly and that the menstrual cycle – ovulation process may not have taken place on the same day, the correct calculation technique is applied by the Obstetrician.

Nutrition in Pregnancy

Expectant mothers should follow a regular feeding program in order to pass the pregnancy process in a healthy way and to complete the development of their babies correctly and bring them into the world.

All the nutrients necessary for the baby’s development process to progress in a healthy way and for the mother to remain healthy should be taken. Among the issues that are considered by the Obstetricians in the preparation of the Nutrition Program in Pregnancy in the expectant mother;

  • Age and Height,
  • Physical Properties,
  • Eating and Drinking Habits,
  • Pregnancy Process,

can be shown.

Expectant mothers who minimize sugar consumption during pregnancy should take care to consume foods rich in calcium, vitamins A, B12, C and protein. In addition, meat, fish, chicken, milk, yogurt, eggs, cheese, legumes, buttermilk, kefir, bread and oilseeds should be consumed regularly by expectant mothers.

However, the preparation of the Nutrition in Pregnancy programs of the expectant mothers by taking a decision together under the control of the Expert Dietitian and the Obstetrician will help the pregnancy process to be much healthier.

What is a Risky Pregnancy?

Pregnancy is a normal process by the nature of women. However, the different discomforts that some expectant mothers are exposed to before pregnancy cause the pregnancy process to be difficult and cause it to be called Risky Pregnancy.

If the Risky Pregnancy situation, which endangers the health of the mother and her baby, is experienced in a very serious dimension, the pregnancy process should be kept under strict follow-up by the Perinatologist and the Obstetrician.
