Pregnancy Diary Week 1-2What's happening for you & your baby
Did you know that you’re not actually pregnant during the first two weeks of your “official” pregnancy? It may seem strange but women, on their first to second week of pregnancy, are not actually pregnant during this period. These are called gestational weeks. The doctor will begin counting your 40 weeks from the first day of your last menstruation. He or she actually started counting from the period when the sperm and the egg haven’t met yet. This happens because medical practitioners cannot pinpoint the exact time when the sperm and the egg meet. In effect, they use the first day of your menstrual period as the starting point of your 40-week pregnancy. Scientists believe that conception usually takes place two weeks after the first day of your menstruation.
