2 weeks pregnant

Your developing Baby

When you are 2 weeks pregnant, that actually means that, you’re still not pregnant, This may sound strange! But it’s true. You only get pregnant from 3rd week of the menstrual cycle. There’s no fetus inside you, but you’re ovulating, which is the best time for one to be conceived. Your egg is patiently waiting for a sperm to fertilize it. Fertilization of your egg by the sperm will only take place near the end of this week.

Your body

When you are 2 weeks pregnant, Your uterus is getting prepared, your uterine lining, which will nourish the baby, is developing, and your body secretes follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which stimulates an egg to mature. At the end of this week, you will be at the midpoint of your menstrual cycle (if you have a regular 28-day cycle), and ovulation will occur (your ovary will release an egg into the Fallopian tube).

This is when you’re most likely to conceive. If you have sexual intercourse without protection around the time that you ovulate, you can become pregnant. After your partner ejaculates, millions of sperm travel through the vagina, and hundreds make it to the fallopian tube, where your egg is waiting. One sperm generally succeeds in penetrating the egg, and fertilization takes place. When that happens, you will be pregnant.
