Many of the women at 2 weeks of gestation still do not know that they will be mothers. This is because it is only the beginning, a phase that does not usually show many symptoms.
According to studies, around 6 to 12 days after fertilization, the egg attaches itself to the inner wall of the uterus (endometrium), thus being officially a pregnancy.
In general, it is still too early to tell family members, so this moment ends up being very intimate and unique for the future mom.
What happens to 2 weeks of gestation?
At 2 weeks of gestation, ovulation and fertilization of the egg by sperm occurs. The formed embryo will migrate from the tubes to the uterus, which will undergo changes to receive it.
The stem cells generated from fertilization are multiplying rapidly to form the tissues and organs of the future baby, which at this time is still very small.
At that moment, the placenta begins to form, which will guarantee the ideal conditions for the development of the fetus.
Can you take the test after 2 weeks?
It is only possible to do the pregnancy test 12 days after the fertilization of the egg, as the HCG hormone only starts to be produced when the embryo implanted in the uterus and the pregnancy actually happens.
Therefore, it takes a few days for the amount of HCG produced to be sufficient to detect a pregnancy by blood test.
