2nd week of pregnancy? You may want to hold that grand announcement because there is still no baby. Yes, you read that right. 2nd week pregnancy symptoms are hard to track because your body is still only preparing itself for gestation. Read on to know what’s happening:
2nd Week of Pregnancy
Similar to what happened in the 1st week, the next week is just for preparation. But 2nd week of pregnancy is a step closer to having a baby.
In the 1st week of pregnancy, you have had your last period. Now is the time for ovulation. When you ovulate, it depends on your cycle and hence your fertility window. After the last period, your ovaries are again going to make an egg. But instead of shedding, the egg will now travel to your fallopian tube. Here, in the fallopian tube, the egg is supposed to meet sperms from your partner, at an optimal time.
The 2nd week of pregnancy is when your egg meets the sperm, so clearly, there is still no embryo or baby. But the convergence of egg and sperms will lead to the baby (pregnancy).
You only have to track your cycle and know when you would be ovulating to boost your chances of pregnancy.
