In our pregnancy week by week guide, you can find out what to expect when you’re 2 weeks pregnant.

You at 2 weeks pregnant

Your period has finished by now. One of your ovaries is getting ready to release an egg. The ovaries are also producing lots of oestrogen. Oestrogen kick-starts some important processes in your body:
  • Your fallopian tubes and cervix produce ‘fertile mucus’, which helps and protects any sperm along its way.
  • A new lining – the endometrium – starts growing in your uterus. A fertilised egg will bury itself in the endometrium.
  • By the end of this week, the ovary is ready to release an egg – this is called ovulation.

Ovulation and sex
Ovulation usually happens around day 14 if you have a 28-day menstrual cycle. You’ll be more likely to get pregnant if you have sex 1-3 days before ovulation.
