Pregnancy At 2 Weeks
Did you know that roughly 600 million sperm compete to reach your egg. Only around 200 will make the journey. And there will ONLY BE ONE WINNER! One of these will succeed in penetrating the membrane to fertilize your egg. As we said in the last article week 1, your body will release an egg which will move to the fallopian tube. The egg will stay there up to 24 hours when the champion sperm gets in and fertilizes it.
This egg will get swept down your fallopian tube and digs into the lining of your uterus and if all goes well, it will grow into your wonderful baby.
All this should happen during this week, and you still don’t even realize that you are pregnant!
Symptoms at two weeks
Although it’s still too early for the symptoms of your pregnancy, some women might have them at this early stage. So here some common ones:
- Tingling in your breasts and your nipples might become sensitive.
- Light bleeding, this caused by the fertilized egg digging into the wall of your womb.
- An increase in your vaginal discharge.
Your Pregnancy Test
Even if you spot the first symptoms of pregnancy and you really can’t wait to have it confirmed, I would hold my horses, the reason being that “the most reliable sign of pregnancy is a missed period”. Although most pregnancy tests nowadays are fairly accurate and sensitive enough to detect pregnancy hormones really early, still I’d wait until the after the first missed period.
- Have you started taking folic-acid? If not, Please start.
- Have you considered some exercise during your pregnancy.
- Eating well. What to eat a lot of and what to reduce or even avoid.
- Stopping any bad health habits. Smoking, drinking alcohol and caffeine.
