You have two problems with your code:
1) In your recoding of hv140 you are dropping a number of cases. To match DHS results use the following. This recodes "don't know" and missing responses to 0, but restricts the recoding just to children age 0-4
recode hv140 (0=0) (1/2=1) (else = 0) if hv102==1 & hv105<5, gen(birthreg)
2) You are tabulating the data unweighted. To match the results you must tabulate the data using the weights.
svy: tab birthreg
