During ovulation a mature egg is released from your ovary and when it's released the egg moves down your fallopian tube and stays there for 12 to 24 hours where it can become fertilized.

Ovulation does not mean you're pregnant.

Around day 14: Ovulation occurs.

Within 24 hours of ovulation: Sperm fertilizes an egg (conception occurs).

About six days after fertilization: The fertilized egg implants into your uterine lining. Around day 21: If conception and implantation occurred during this menstrual cycle, you're pregnant.

Ovulation is when a mature egg is released from the ovary.

The egg then moves down the fallopian tube where it can be fertilized..

If sperm are in the fallopian tube when the egg is released, there is a good chance that the egg will be fertilized, creating an embryo, which can grow into a baby.

The stage of pregnancy that folic acid is most important is during and after the first 3 to 4 weeks into your pregnancy.

If you don't take folic acid during pregnancy or get enough folic acid during and before the pregnancy the baby will be at higher risk of developing neural tube defects.

The neural tube defects are serious birth defects that affect the brain, spinal cord and spine and may cause death in the baby or Spina Bifida.

Fruits that you should not eat during pregnancy are grapes, papaya and pineapple.

The bones that babies are not born with are the kneecaps which start out as cartilage and then turn into bones as the child reaches age 2 and 6 years old.

A newborn baby has 300 bones and then as the baby grows into an adult the bones fuse together and grow together and then form only 206 bones.

And some of the baby's bones are made of special material called cartilage.

The youngest mother ever was a 5 year old girl named Lina Medina who became a mother at the age of 5 years old in May 14th 1939.

The shortest labor that was ever recorded was 120 seconds.

The shortest labor of 120 seconds that was recorded all happened when a lady named Mary Gorgens got up to go to the bathroom, two days before her baby was due, where she was surprised to feel her son's head crowning.

Mary Gorgens quickly woke up her husband, but when he ran to the bathroom himself, thinking he had time, it was too late: She had already delivered in 120 seconds!

The longest time a woman has been pregnant was 375 days which is a bit over a year.

Most normal pregnancy times are 9 months.

If a baby poops in the mothers womb during labor and during the birthing process the baby could develop a serious and dangerous lung condition which is called meconium aspiration.

Babies cannot and do not fart in the womb because they don't ingest air in the womb.

However once a baby is out of the womb then they can fart.

A single drop of sperm can cause pregnancy if that sperm reaches the egg and fertilizes the egg.

You can get pregnant if you put sperm inside your vagina and the sperm gets far enough into your vagina.

Some people artificially inseminate at home by using a turkey baster or artificial insemination kt to get pregnant which inserts sperm into the woman's vagina.

Fruit that is good for pregnancy are citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons which are full of vitamin C which helps the baby's bones grow properly and also help with your digestion and also deter any morning sickness during pregnancy.

Fruits that cannot be eaten during pregnancy are grapes, pineapples and Papaya.

However grapes are considered safe during pregnancy as long as you don't eat too many of them.

You can eat grapes while pregnant but you should not eat too many of the grapes as they can cause complications with pregnancy.

Grapes are not good during pregnancy due to the fact that grapes contain resveratrol which is a toxic compound that could cause poisoning or other pregnancy complications.

Drinks you should avoid while pregnant are sugary and diet sodas, caffeine such as coffee, alcohol, unpasteurized juices, unpasteurized milk.

Foods that should not be eaten during your first trimester of pregnancy include raw or undercooked seafood and meat.

You should also avoid eating Unpasteurized cheeses or other shellfish during your first trimester of pregnancy.

During pregnancy you should also avoid.

Soft Cheese. Soft cheese is made from unpasteurized milk and contains bacteria that can cause food poisoning.

Packaged and Processed Foods.
Seafood.
Papayas.
Pineapples.
Raw/Undercooked Eggs and Meats.
Caffeine.
Alcoholic Beverages.

When your belly gets hard during pregnancy it's most often caused by excessive stretching of your abdominal muscles which generally happens around weeks 7 and 8 of the pregnancy, and it is normal for the lower abdomen to appear more swollen and harder than when you were not pregnancy.

When a fetus dies inside you it's known as a miscarriage and most often your doctor will give you some medicine that helps induce labor to help expel the dead fetus from your body.

Or surgery may be performed to remove the dead fetus.

It is possible to sometimes miscarry and still be pregnant.

The symptoms of miscarriage are usually vaginal bleeding and lower tummy pain.

It is important to see your doctor or go to the emergency room if you have signs of a miscarriage.

The most common sign of a miscarriage is vaginal bleeding, which can vary from light red or brown spotting to heavy bleeding.

Miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before the 20th week. About 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.

But the actual number is likely higher because many miscarriages occur very early in pregnancy before you might even know about a pregnancy.

It's thought most miscarriages are caused by abnormal chromosomes in the baby.

Chromosomes are genetic "building blocks" that guide the development of a baby.

If a baby has too many or not enough chromosomes, it will not develop properly.

During a miscarriage, an embryo or fetus is spontaneously expelled from the uterus but can't yet live in the outside world.

After 20 weeks, the loss of a fetus is called a stillbirth instead of a miscarriage.

Vaginal Bleeding is the most common sign of a miscarriage along with other signs which include.

Cramping and pain in your lower tummy.
A discharge of fluid from your vagina.
A discharge of tissue from your vagina.
And no longer experiencing the symptoms of pregnancy, such as feeling sick and breast tenderness.

Yes a fetus can die inside the womb and not be a miscarriage.

When a fetus does die in the womb suddenly without you knowing it the term for the baby dying in the womb without knowing it is called intra-uterine fetal death.

So it can also be considered miscarriage when the baby dies in your womb but does not discharge from the women's uterus.

However the baby can die before it develops fully and not discharge but not miscarry.

It's rare that a baby dies in the womb and doesn't develop fully but it can and does happen from time to time.

But when you do miscarry a baby you're usually more fertile and can easily get pregnant again afterwards.
