I was curious if you can answer something for me? I just took my 1st OB exam and there is a question on the exam that people are fighting over. If you have the time, can you please tell me what the answer is?
Here is the question.
A 34 year old lady is currently pregnant. She has 4 year old twins and a 2 year old son. In this lady's hospital file, you will find gravida _____ and para ____.
My answer is: Gravida 3 and para 3. Students in my class are saying that you count twins as one, which confuses me. I thought para = births and therefore, would be counted as 2 births.
Anyhow...if you can offer your help and knowledge, I would be greatful.
