Pregnancy can be a whole new experience with quite a lot of physical, emotional, and mental changes. In order to make sure you’re fully prepared for what each stage of your pregnancy holds, we’ll be taking you through your pregnancy and what to expect week by week.
During the first trimester, you’ll find many things changing and many pregnancy signs and symptoms to look out for. After our previous article that includes what to expect during your first week of pregnancy, here’s everything you need to know about your second week of pregnancy.
2 week pregnant symptoms
At two weeks, pregnancy is still a possibility, but not certain yet. However, there are some early pregnancy symptoms that you could look out for at week 2 to indicate you might be pregnant. These include the following:
- Missing your period
- Tender or swollen breasts
- Feeling moody
- Nausea or vomiting
- Frequent urination
2 weeks pregnant belly
During week 2, you’re at the most fertile time of your month as you’re ovulating. At 2 weeks, your body is getting ready to fertilize an egg and so what’s happening inside your belly is that your uterine lining is thickening up to be able to support fertilizing an egg.
By the end of week 2, if you do conceive, your body will start slowing down your digestion which could lead to bloating. If a sperm makes its way to your fallopian tube, you will conceive. There could be a possibility of light spotting a few days later.
Pregnancy checklist at week 2
Since you’re still not sure whether you’re pregnant or not, consider that your 2 weeks pregnancy is just your ovulation period. Here’s a few things you should add to your pregnancy checklist at week 2:
- Keep an eye out for signs of ovulation.
- Use an ovulation test to be able to identify when you’re most fertile.
- Engage in intercourse with your partner as this is your best chance to conceive.
