So you think you might be 2 weeks pregnant
As with Week 1 this is still early to tell if your period is just late or if you are in fact pregnant. Don' t forget the other factors which might affect your menstrual cycle. Dietary changes such as under eating or over eating can affect your natural cycles, trauma, stress or just a dramatic change in your lifestyle as well as excess alcohol consumption or drug use can cause your periods to stop or become erratic. If you have any concerns you should always consult your doctor.
Because each woman is unique, in most cases her menstrual/ovulation cycles are different too which is why, although from conception to birth usually takes 38 weeks, we tend to count term over 40 weeks, to take into account the different times during their cycle, women may conceive. For this reason Week 1 and Week 2 of pregnancy are difficult to pinpoint and most women at this stage find they are further along in their pregnancy than they first thought.
