But, beware of fake copies in the market and only buy real Prega News products.Now that we have cleared what you should choose, let’s continue with what all you need to know. So, here’s everything you need to know about pregnancy test kits; which will hopefully answer all your What-When-How of taking a pregnancy test at home.

  1. What: There are two main types of tests that can be done to determine if you’re pregnant: urine test and blood test. While the latter can only be done at a doctor’s clinic, urine tests are simple and can be done one day after you miss your periods. These pregnancy tests are designed to look for a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your blood and urine respectively. This hormone is produced when a fertilized egg gets attached to the mother’s uterus. And, as the course of pregnancy progresses, the quantity of hCG rises rapidly, doubling every 2-3 days.


  1. When: If you’re taking a pregnancy test at home, it probably means you are excited and want to confirm the news as soon as you can. Home pregnancy test kits are accurate but, they can tell you the correct result only if the level of hCG in your body is detectable. Ideally, you can take the test the day you miss your periods but waiting a day or two will ensure that the hCG level in your body has reached the required level. Plus, you should always take the test early in the morning as the level of hCG in your body is the highest at that time.


  1. How: Pregnancy test kits come with an instruction booklet; explaining the steps in detail which make the whole process hassle proof. The process is pretty simple. All you need to do is put 3 drops of urine collected in the morning from a container. It should be applied on the sample slot present on the detection card with the help of a dropper and just wait for the results. But, if you still find yourself confused, you can watch our How-to-use video that explains every little detail of the same.

So, these were a few things that you should know before you take a pregnancy test at home. We hope you get your good news soon!

Things to know before the baby arrives

Checking your due date calendar and watching a little seed grow in your tummy is purely magical. With every heartbeat, you develop a bond, unfathomable to others. However, nine months later, when your bundle of joy is in your arms, it suddenly strikes you that you don’t know anything about this tiny human being.

That is an inconvenient position to be in. Fret not, we are here to ease you into the brand new world of motherhood.Your baby won’t look as you imagined: Yes, babies are always cute. But don’t expect your child to look exactly like the framed photos. During the initial days after birth, a baby undergoes a lot of change in their appearance.

The whole debate of baby bath: To bathe or not to bathe – deciding on a baby bath will be an everyday chore. So, we are here to make the decision easier for you. Babies don’t get very dirty in the initial days so you can clean the baby with a sponge until the umbilical cord falls off. After that, 2-3 baths per week are enough to keep your baby clean.Babies cry a lot: A quiet newborn is a myth. Your baby will cry a lot. It will cry when hungry, when it wants to be held or needs to be changed. So prepare yourself, well ahead of time because your baby will start crying when you least expect it.

Expect a greenish-black surprise: Your baby will surprise you every day, especially with its first stool. In the initial days, babies pass a sticky greenish-black substance called meconium which contains materials like skin cells, mucus, amniotic fluid, bile, water, and lanugo. But don’t freak out and call your doctor, it’s normal.

A hungry baby is a healthy baby: Your baby has lived inside you for nine months and is used to having food quite frequently; so getting it used to a new food routine might take a while. A baby’s tiny stomach cannot hold as much food as its body needs, so feeding smaller portions at frequent intervals is the only way to go.

Tummy time is important: Most kids despise tummy time, but this exercise is essential for them and should not be skipped. Babies lie on their backs the entire day. So you need to make sure that they lie on their tummy for few minutes to build their upper body strength.

That was our list of things you need to know about your newborn, and we hope it will save you the struggle later. We wish you a fantastic motherhood!
