TOPIC: FAMILY LIVING AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
SUB-TOPIC: PREGNANCY AND ANTENATAL
Pregnancy is the result of the fertilization of the female egg by the sperm. Each ovary produces ovum every month. This process is called ovulation. If there’s sexual intercourse between a man and a woman at the period when the ovum is produced, the sperm will fertilize. The result is Pregnancy. If there’s no sexual intercourse, the released ovum will die and after a day or two, menstruation starts.
Signs of Pregnancy

- Breast becomes full and tender as nipples hardens
