Chromosomal abnormalities during pregnancy

Chromosomal abnormalities can occur during the crossover of the genetic material of the ovum and sperm during fertilization. The pairs of chromosomes may not connect well or may break off.  This damage to the chromosomes at this stage may lead to the natural expulsion of the embryo as the pregnancy cannot proceed normally and may end in the form of an early miscarriage.

Did you know that the sex of the child is actually determined by the sperm of the father? Sperm carries the genetic blueprint for the gender. The gender of the baby is determined at the moment of fertilization of the sperm and the egg. Each of us - Male or female started as an embryo, developed from the fertilization of the sperm and the egg. Both the internal and external sex organs are formed early in pregnancy and by the fifth month of pregnancy, if the baby growing is a female, then all the eggs she will ever produce in her life ( around five million of them)
