Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week

What My Baby Looks Like in Week 2

Look at a picture of how conception begins in week two as the egg and sperm begin to move toward each other.

When you have sex, about 250 million sperm are released and swim toward the egg. An egg is released and begins to travel down your fallopian tube. At the same time that the egg is released, a small cystic structure, called a Corpus Luteum, forms on the ovary to help supply hormones which prepare your uterus for pregnancy.
