Live a Healthy Life After Marriage With Pregnancy Tests

If you have long been trying to conceive, even the unconfirmed "feeling pregnant" illusions can make you very ecstatic. Why prolong the "hoping period?" One quick and easy way to confirm your pregnancy is through a pregnancy test. Pregnancy tests confirm whether or not you're bound to become a mom soon. If you have been experiencing some signs of pregnancy, it is advised that you get a confirmation by taking a pregnancy test as soon as you can.

There are two ways to conduct pregnancy tests. One is by urine sampling and the other is through blood test. Pregnancy tests which use blood sample are more accurate than the urine test. It is administered by your physician in order to obtain an early diagnosis of pregnancy. It can detect pregnancy as early as the second week of conception. Other women use this type of test to confirm prior urine tests which they have done on their own.

If you want an instant confirmation, you may conduct a home pregnancy test in the mean time. All you need to do is test a sample of your urine by the time your period is due. In the past decade, home pregnancy tests have proved to be between 97 to 99% accurate as long as it is taken correctly. To ensure proper administration of a home pregnancy test, take a look at the tips below.

l  Always read instructions carefully

Pregnancy tests are very simple and easy to use. However, some women still end up doing the wrong process. You can immediately lose the value and accuracy of the test if you fail to follow instructions properly. If you have questions, do not hesitate to call your kit manufacturer's customer service number.

l  Collect your urine specimen

If you are planning on conducting a home pregnancy test, use your first morning urine (FMU). FMU's contain a big amount of hormones which can help detect your pregnancy. For a more accurate result, some pregnancy kits indicate that you wait until the day that your period is due before testing. When collecting your urine, you can use a small specimen cup.

l  Read the test

So you have just finished conducting the test. How do you know if it's positive or negative? Most pregnancy kits come with two windows. One is the control window which tells you whether or not the kit is working correctly. The other window is the testing window which gives you the result. If you see a line in the testing window, you are pregnant. Note that pregnancy kits use different ways to show results. Some use lines. Others use a plus. To prevent confusion, always read the instructions. Make sure as well to follow the time requirement indicated in your kit.

If the test if positive, be cautious about everything that you eat and do. Avoid things that can do harm to your baby. If it is negative and yet you have been experiencing some signs of pregnancy, check with your doctor right away to get a second and more accurate result.

Food Storage Ideas

Do you find it messy to see your bread and other vegetable on top of your kitchen counter?  Aside from keeping them in my refrigerator's vegetable bin I really find it hard to keep the onions, garlic and other dry vegetable on top of the counter because I want every food on proper storage.  I don't want them out in the open to keep away pests also.

Sometimes I encounter little problems with these dry vegetables because they get wet on the refrigerator's vegetable bin and will cause them to rot easily.  The long life span of veggies will be shorter than expected.  Seeing this bread bins and dry vegetable storage organized in the kitchen cabinet will definitely solve the problem and will keep the mess as well. Nice kitchen and cooking idea.
