Examples of "multigravida"
One scientific term for the state of pregnancy is "gravidity" (adjective ""gravid""), Latin for "heavy" and a pregnant female is sometimes referred to as a "gravida". Similarly, the term "parity" (abbreviated as "para") is used for the number of times a female carries a pregnancy past 20 weeks of gestation. Twins and other multiple births are counted as one pregnancy and birth. A woman who has never been pregnant is referred to as a "nulligravida." A woman who is (or has been only) pregnant for the first time is referred to as a "primigravida", and a woman in subsequent pregnancies as a "
" or as "multiparous." Therefore, during a second pregnancy a woman would be described as "gravida 2, para 1" and upon live delivery as "gravida 2, para 2." In-progress pregnancies, abortions, miscarriages and/ or stillbirths account for parity values being less than the gravida number. In the case of twins, triplets, etc., gravida number and parity value are increased by one only. Women who have never carried a pregnancy achieving more than 20 weeks of gestation age are referred to as "nulliparous."
