the time, about 9 months, during which a woman has a baby developing and growing inside her.
the condition, quality, or period of having (an) offspring developing in the uterus.
The period of time from confirmation of implantation of a fertilized egg within the uterus until the fetus has entirely left the uterus (i.e., has been delivered). Implantation is confirmed through a presumptive sign of pregnancy such as missed menses or a positive pregnancy test [45 CFR 46.203(b)]. This "confirmation" may be in error, but, for research purposes, investigators would presume that a living fetus was present until evidence to the contrary was clear. Although fertilization occurs a week or more before implantation, the current inability to detect the fertilization event or the presence of a newly fertilized egg makes a definition of pregnancy based on implantation necessary.
lasts approximately 63 days in both cats and dogs. The mother's appetite will increase dramatically in the last third of pregnancy. Prepare a special whelping box with the mother's usual bedding for the birth. The temperature should be kept at 85° F for the birth and the first week. Newborns sleep and nurse most of the time. If they cry constantly, they are probably chilled, sick, or hungry. Eyes open when they are 10-14 days old (kittens and puppies). They will begin nibbling food at 3-4 weeks of age. Weaning can be completed at approximately 6 weeks. First vaccines should be given when the puppies/kittens are 6-8 weeks old. When 6-12 weeks old they should be ready for a new home.
A pregnancy documented by ultrasound that shows a gestational sac in the uterus. For ART data collection purposes, pregnancy is defined as a clinical pregnancy rather than a chemical pregnancy (i.e., a positive pregnancy test).
a nine-month period during which an egg develops into a baby after it has been fertilized by a sperm during sexual intercourse
the state of being pregnant; the period from conception to birth when a woman carries a developing fetus in her uterus
a nine-month process during which a fertilized egg grows, develops and goes through a series of transformations before it can finally become a baby--a new human being-- at the time of its birth
a special time for a family as it looks forward to the birth of the child
a time when your body opens and becomes more flexible as it prepares for the delivery of your baby
5pre^nEnsI/ n. the state of being pregnant
the condition of having a developing embryo or fetus in the body.
As used by the medical and pro-choice communities: The stages of pre-natal mammalian development which extends from the time that the embryo attaches to the wall of the uterus until birth. Pregnancy thus starts about 2 weeks after conception. As used by pro-life groups: pregnancy extends from fertilization until birth.
State of having a fetus in uterus.
The last 6 weeks of the pregnancy, take: ? Calcium- ? cup daily ? Magnesium- ? cup daily ? Raspberry leaf tea during the pregnancy These two minerals have been found to help with the labor, making it easier and less painful.
Pregnancy documented by the presence of a gestational sac on ultrasound. For ART data collection purposes, pregnancy is defined as a clinical pregnancy rather than a chemical pregnancy (i.e., a positive pregnancy test).
The state of carrying a developing embryo or fetus within the female body. This condition can be indicated by positive results on an over-the-counter urine test, and confirmed through a blood test, ultrasound, detection of fetal heartbeat, or an X-ray. Pregnancy lasts for about nine months, measured from the date of the woman's last menstrual period (LMP). It is conventionally divided into three trimesters, each roughly three months long.

A positive pregnancy test that shows no evidenceof a gestational sac or viable fetus on ultrasound. Can be classed as a veryearly miscarriage.
A pregnancy documented by ultrasound that showsa gestational sac containing a viable fetus in the uterus. For ART data collectionpurposes, pregnancy is defined as a clinical pregnancy rather than a biochemicalpregnancy (i.e., a positive pregnancy test).
the period between conception and birth.
The condition of carrying a developing embryo in the uterus.
The period during which a woman carries a developing fetus in her uterus; it begins with fertilization.
the nine-month period after fertilization, during which the embryo grows into a fetus and then into a fully formed human baby.
The state of a female after conception or implantation until the birth of a baby or expulsion of the fetus.
The condition of nurturing the embryo or fetus within the woman's body, lasting from conception to birth. The normal duration is 265 days from conception to birth, or the more usual calculation of 280 days (40 weeks) from the first day of the last menstrual period.
For a woman to dream that she is pregnant, denotes she will be unhappy with her husband, and her children will be unattractive. For a virgin, this dream omens scandal and adversity. If a woman is really pregnant and has this dream, it prognosticates a safe delivery and swift recovery of strength.
a state when an embryo implanted in the uterus stimulates the hormone changes which will nourish the embryo/fetus until birth. Scientifically, pregnancy begins when the hormone HCG is produced by the uterine lining upon implantation of the zygote. Interestingly, recent medical studies indicate that 2/3 of all fertilized eggs never implant probably because of some genetic or developmental defect.
Pregnancy is a normal, natural condition in females of carrying live young within the female's body until the baby is mature enough to breathe, eat, and eliminate on its own (outside the mother's body). Pregnancy lasts from implantation until the body expels the fetus at birth. Pregnancy can also end when the body expels the embryo (induced or spontaneous abortion) or fetus (miscarriage) before it can survive on its own.

The time from conception until birth.
The condition whereby a fertilised egg implants into the uterine wall and a foetus develops
In mammals, pregnancy is the period of reproduction during which a female carries one or more live offspring from implantation in the uterus through gestation. It begins when a fertilized zygote implants in the female's uterus; and ends once it leaves the uterus.
Pregnancy is the carrying of one or more embryos or fetuses by female mammals, including humans, inside their bodies. In a pregnancy, there can be multiple gestations (for example, in the case of twins, or triplets). Human pregnancy is the most studied of all mammalian pregnancies.
