Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Where does fertilization take place?

    • A.

      Ovary

    • B.

      Ampulla

    • C.

      Beginning of fallopian tube

    • D.

      Uterus

    Correct Answer
    B. Ampulla
    Explanation
    Fertilization takes place in the ampulla, which is the widest part of the fallopian tube. This is where the sperm and egg meet and fuse together, resulting in the formation of a fertilized egg or zygote. The ampulla provides the necessary environment for the sperm to swim towards the egg and for the fertilization process to occur successfully.

    What are some important functions of the amniotic fluid?

    • A.

      Protection

    • B.

      Nourishment

    • C.

      Temperature regulation

    • D.

      Lung development

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Protection
    C. Temperature regulation
    D. Lung development
    Explanation
    The amniotic fluid serves several important functions during pregnancy. Firstly, it acts as a protective cushion, providing a barrier against external impacts and protecting the developing fetus from injury. Secondly, it helps to regulate the temperature around the fetus, ensuring a stable and optimal environment for growth. Lastly, the amniotic fluid plays a crucial role in the development of the fetal lungs, as the fetus breathes in and out the fluid, helping the lungs to mature and practice the necessary movements for breathing after birth.

    What delivers oxygenated blood to the fetus?

    • A.

      Vein

    • B.

      Artery

    • C.

      Capillary

    Correct Answer
    A. Vein
    Explanation
    Veins deliver oxygenated blood to the fetus. In the circulatory system, veins are responsible for carrying blood back to the heart. In the case of a fetus, the umbilical vein carries oxygenated blood from the placenta to the fetus. This blood is rich in nutrients and oxygen, which are essential for the growth and development of the fetus. Once the blood reaches the fetus, it is distributed to various organs and tissues through smaller blood vessels, including capillaries.

    The side of the placenta otherwise known as the "Dirty Duncan" is against what?

    • A.

      Stomach

    • B.

      Cervix

    • C.

      Fetus

    • D.

      Uterus

    Correct Answer
    D. Uterus
    Explanation
    The side of the placenta known as the "Dirty Duncan" is against the uterus. The placenta is an organ that develops during pregnancy and is responsible for providing oxygen and nutrients to the fetus, as well as removing waste products. It attaches to the wall of the uterus and is positioned in a way that the "Dirty Duncan" side, which is the maternal side of the placenta, is in direct contact with the uterine wall. This allows for the exchange of substances between the mother's blood and the fetus's blood.

  • 5. 

    The hole in a fetus's heart that allows blood to bypass the fetal liver and lungs is called Foramen Ovale.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the hole in a fetus's heart that allows blood to bypass the fetal liver and lungs is indeed called Foramen Ovale. This is a normal physiological feature in the fetal heart that allows oxygenated blood to flow from the right atrium directly to the left atrium, bypassing the non-functional lungs and liver. After birth, the foramen ovale usually closes, redirecting blood flow to the lungs for oxygenation.

    What is a subjective (presumptive) change in pregnancy?

    • A.

      Fetal outline

    • B.

      Amenorrhea

    • C.

      Fetus visualized

    • D.

      Chadwicks sign

    Correct Answer
    B. Amenorrhea
    Explanation
    Amenorrhea refers to the absence of menstruation, which is a common subjective change experienced during pregnancy. This occurs because the hormonal changes in the body prevent the shedding of the uterine lining. Therefore, the absence of menstruation can be considered a presumptive sign of pregnancy.

    What is the average recommended weight gain for a pregnant woman?

    • A.

      10-15 lbs

    • B.

      25-35 lbs

    • C.

      45-55 lbs

    Correct Answer
    B. 25-35 lbs
    Explanation
    The average recommended weight gain for a pregnant woman is 25-35 lbs. This range takes into account the weight of the baby, placenta, amniotic fluid, increased blood volume, and extra fat stores needed for breastfeeding. Gaining too little weight during pregnancy can lead to complications such as low birth weight, while gaining too much weight can increase the risk of gestational diabetes and other health issues. Therefore, the recommended range of 25-35 lbs ensures a healthy pregnancy for both the mother and the baby.

    What is a diagnostic(positive) sign of pregnancy?

    • A.

      Hegar's sign

    • B.

      Nausea/vomiting

    • C.

      Urinary frequency

    • D.

      Fetal heart beat

    Correct Answer
    D. Fetal heart beat
    Explanation
    Fetal heart beat is considered a diagnostic sign of pregnancy because it indicates the presence of a developing fetus. This can be detected through various methods such as ultrasound or a Doppler device. The presence of a fetal heart beat confirms the pregnancy and is an important milestone in prenatal care. Hegar's sign, nausea/vomiting, and urinary frequency are also common signs of pregnancy, but they are not considered diagnostic signs as they can be present in other conditions as well.

    What is gestation?

    • A.

      Number of weeks since last day of last menstrual period

    • B.

      Number of weeks since first day of last menstrual period

    • C.

      Number of weeks sincer fertilization occurred

    • D.

      Day of suspected birth

    Correct Answer
    B. Number of weeks since first day of last menstrual period
    Explanation
    Gestation refers to the period of time during which a fetus develops inside the womb of a pregnant woman. It is typically measured in weeks and is calculated from the first day of the woman's last menstrual period. This is because it is difficult to determine the exact date of fertilization, but the date of the last menstrual period is usually known and can be used as a starting point for estimating gestation.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    How EARLY can you hear the fetal heart rate?

    • A.

      8 weeks

    • B.

      12 weeks

    • C.

      15 weeks

    • D.

      4 days

    Correct Answer
    B. 12 weeks
    Explanation
    The fetal heart rate can be heard as early as 12 weeks. This is because by this time, the baby's heart has developed and is functioning well enough to be detected using a Doppler device. Before 12 weeks, the fetal heart is still in the early stages of development and may not be strong enough to produce a detectable sound.

    Following Nagele’s rule, how do you figure out estimated date of delivery?

    • A.

      Begin with last day of the last menstrual period, subtract 3 months and add 7 days

    • B.

      Begin with last day of the last menstrual period, subtract 4 months and add 7 days

    • C.

      Begin with first day of the last menstrual period, subtract 4 months and add 8 days

    • D.

      Begin with first day of the last menstrual period, subtract 3 months and add 7 days

    Correct Answer
    D. Begin with first day of the last menstrual period, subtract 3 months and add 7 days
    Explanation
    According to Nagele's rule, the estimated date of delivery is calculated by beginning with the first day of the last menstrual period, subtracting 3 months, and then adding 7 days. This method is used to estimate the due date of a pregnancy based on the woman's menstrual cycle. By subtracting 3 months and adding 7 days to the first day of the last menstrual period, it provides an estimation of when the baby is likely to be born.

  • 12. 

    When should the mother receive a Rhogam injection?

    • A.

      If she is Rh negative

    • B.

      If she is Rh positive

    • C.

      If the baby is Rh negative

    • D.

      Always

    Correct Answer
    A. If she is Rh negative
    Explanation
    The mother should receive a Rhogam injection if she is Rh negative because Rhogam is given to prevent the development of antibodies in the mother's blood that could harm future pregnancies if the baby is Rh positive.
