PregnancyWeek BY Week

Week 2 of Pregnancy

Do not hurry! You are still not considered pregnant. Your pregnancy is a calendar of 40 to 42 weeks, which you are going to find out from the fourth and fifth week. Basically, you will get pregnant at the end of the second week and the beginning of the third week, depending on the time of ovulation. Ovulation indicates your body’s fertile period. If you think you had sex two weeks ago, then you are probably four or even five weeks pregnant. Almost the day after ovulation, the egg cell is fertilized and starts producing a hormone called human gonadotropin or HCG, which is determined by doing a blood test one week after the delay in menstruation, and you can find out about your pregnancy.

The state of the fetus in the second week of pregnancy

There is still no news of the fetus because fertilization has not been done. This week you are in fertile time, and by knowing the right time of ovulation, you can increase the chances of pregnancy and conception on time. In the next 40 weeks, the fetus will grow bigger and bigger.

Fetal height: 0 cm
Fetal weight: 0 kg

Mother’s condition in the second week of pregnancy

The condition of the mother in the second week of pregnancy is more related to the symptoms that occur during ovulation.

  • Lower abdominal pain: Many women experience pain in one or both sides of the lower abdomen during ovulation.
  • Basal Body Temperature: Body temperature will change during ovulation. Body temperature rises two or three days before pregnancy. You should check your body temperature daily to determine when your body temperature changes. It is better to do this every morning. Since fertilization must be done before the temperature rises, you must do this for several months so that you can reach a stable pattern.

Ovulation symptoms

The ovulation cycle determines the exact date of conception. Ovulation usually occurs between day 13 and 20 of the first day of your period, depending on the length of your cycle. At the time of ovulation, one of the ovaries releases an egg that is transferred to the fallopian tubes. For fertilization, the sperm must also enter the fallopian tube and see the egg at the right time. There are several methods that can be used to determine the time of ovulation. It is true that the normal menstrual cycle is 28 days, but many women do not have 28-day periods and some menstruate earlier or later. But following up for a few months will help you reach a correct pattern.

Important points during conception

Once you get your ovulation pattern you need to plan your peak fertility times with your partner. This time is usually one day before ovulation and therefore the sperm has time to enter the fallopian tube and fertilize the egg. Having regular sex during these days increases the chances of sperm and egg contact. At the time of ovulation, the vaginal tissue changes and it will have a discharge similar to egg white and clear, which indicates the readiness of ovulation. After ovulation, the discharge becomes cloudy and thick and disappears.

What to eat in the second week of pregnancy?

  • Continue taking folic acid: Continue to take folic acid. This vitamin is very vital at the time of conception and also during the 9 months of pregnancy. Many leafy greens are also rich in folic acid.
  • Forget the hype: it is better not to use refined sugars and white flour. Reduce the consumption of foods such as cookies, donuts, cakes and sweets. Saturated fats such as fried potato salad should not be used during this period. High consumption of such fats can increase nausea and vomiting and pregnancy complications.
  • Use colored fruits and vegetables: use green leafy vegetables, yellow fruits such as apricots and carrots, semolina, oats and low-fat dairy products.
  • Don’t skip breakfast: Never skip breakfast from your meals. Pay attention to what you eat for lunch. Remember that you are not supposed to eat for two people and this belief is wrong.
  • Create proper eating habits: If you have a disorder such as eating disorder or bulimia, be sure to consult a nutritionist before pregnancy.

Important symptoms of the second week of pregnancy

If your menstrual cycle is 28 days, your ovulation day will probably be on day 14. In addition to the pregnancy test, some early symptoms may attract your attention in the second week of pregnancy , among which you can mention mood sensitivity, sensitive and swollen breasts, nausea and vomiting, increased urination and fatigue.

  • Uterine discharge: Uterine discharge will be similar to egg white. It is true that it may sound a little unpleasant, but it is true. Your uterine secretions will be thin, clear and like egg whites during ovulation.
  • Breast sensitivity: Hormonal changes related to ovulation cause the breasts to feel a little sore.
  • Spotting: You may notice a red or brown spot in your underwear during ovulation. This happens when the follicle around the egg breaks down. If it is more than spotting, it is better to consult a doctor.
  • Increased sex drive: You probably know that it’s ovulation time, and this naturally increases the desire for sex.
  • Changes in the cervix: The cervix becomes longer, softer and more open during ovulation, but this is not a sign that you will notice.

Ultrasound of the second week of pregnancy

No ultrasound has been able to show a two-week fetus because there is basically no fetus in the second week. Basically, your doctor needs these two weeks only so that he can calculate your exact due date. If you can see the inside of your two-week pregnant belly at the time of ovulation, it means that your ovary has released the egg into the fallopian tube and has 12-24 hours to fertilize it. If fertilization occurs, an egg is formed.

List of important tasks in the second week of pregnancy

  • Use an ovulation test.
  • Look for signs of ovulation.

  • As you get closer to your fertile period, have sex one day in between.

It may be necessary for the father to evaluate his nutrition and if he takes drugs or has habits such as smoking, he should leave them. Men should also take vitamins and other types of supplements and have a proper diet for successful conception
