Why women who want to be pregnant need to get a little pregnant

More than two-thirds of women who are pregnant will eventually have a baby.

The other 20 percent are still waiting for a “perfect” pregnancy, which can take anywhere from three to five years, according to the National Institutes of Health.

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development says that many of the women who do have a pregnancy are in their late 20s, with an average age of 27.

The average wait time for a birth is 12 weeks, and some women are even left with multiple pregnancies and still aren’t able to have a child.

Here’s what you need to know about the reasons women want to get pregnant.
