Your nurse recommends
If you are pregnant:
Attend your gestational visits to have a good control of your pregnancy, remember that throughout the pregnancy different studies are carried out, both ultrasound and laboratory. It is very important to attend these controls as soon as you receive the news that you are pregnant, since in the first weeks you can see changes in your baby:
During pregnancy, EGO (general urine test) is performed frequently since urinary tract infections can cause premature pregnancy.
Remember that all laboratory tests must be done on an empty stomach, so it is advisable to fast for 8 to 12 hours. The 1st trimester screening is the only analysis that you can perform without it since it does not alter the result. Do not forget to consume Folic Acid prior to pregnancy and at least until week 12 to avoid neural tube defects, later you can consume a multivitamin as well as calcium.
