The Pregnancy or Pregnancy (from pregnant, and from the Latin gravitas) is the period between the implantation of the zygote in the uterus, until the moment of delivery, in terms of the significant physiological, metabolic and even morphological changes that occur in Women to protect, nourish and allow the development of the fetus, such as disruption of menstrual cycles, or increasing the size of the breasts to prepare for breastfeeding. The term Ripening specifies to the physiological processes of growth and development of the fetus inside the maternal uterus. In theory, the gestation is of the fetus and the pregnancy is of the woman, although in practice many people use both terms as synonyms.

In the human species, gestations are usually unique, although multiple pregnancies may occur. The use of assisted reproduction techniques is increasing the incidence of multiple pregnancies in developed countries.

The Pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period or 38 from fertilization (Generally 9 Months). The 1st trimester is the time of enormous risk of spontaneous abortion; The onset of the third trimester is considered the point of viability of the fetus (the one from which it can survive extrauterine without medical support).
