There are many things you can do in order to prepare for pregnancy and most of them are fun. But there are some practical issues about having a baby that shouldn't be forgotten. If you are thinking about having a baby, it is important to prepare yourself for pregnancy before you try to conceive.
You can find out if you are pregnant with tests of your urine or blood. These tests look for a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). HCG is produced by the placenta. It is found in your blood or urine when you are pregnant. Tulalip Health Clinic offers an initial urine pregnancy screening as well as a confirmatory blood test.
If you are planning to have a baby, you may be concerned about illnesses that your child might inherit. Genetic screening is a way to learn more about inherited diseases before you are pregnant. Genetic screening may also be done at your first prenatal visit and later in your pregnancy. The Tulalip Health Clinic offers genetic screenings - the maternal quad screen is performed between the 16th and 18th week of pregnancy.
