So, when your a gynaecologist will measure your pregnancy, she would usually do so from your last menstrual cycle. It is commonly observed that you become pregnant nearly by the end of week two or beginning of week 3 depending on your ovulation cycle. So, when we talk about ovulation, we actually calculate your fertility period.



    Your body will take some time before it exhibits some signs of conception. Missing your periods in one of the most common and noticeable signs of pregnancy and then you can take a test to confirm the same. At 2 weeks of your pregnancy, physical changes will not be evident right away.
