Pregnancy Week 3

It is now two weeks from your last menstrual period. Conception may occur today! Well, at least in the previous few or next few days, depending on the length of your cycle. The egg and sperm will meet, creating a single cell organism called a zygote will start to divide. You may want to start preparing for the psychological part of pregnancy now. Around now, if the egg was fertilized, it will drop into your uterus. Now that the fertilized egg (or zygote) is in your uterus, fluid will enter dividing it into two. One will be the placenta, the other will be the baby.
