2 Weeks Pregnant
During ovulation, a mature ovum, or egg, is released from the ovaries, ready to be fertilized by a sperm. In case of a regular 28-day cycle, ovulation occurs about 14 days before the next anticipated menstruation.
An egg is viable for 24 hours and sperm for 72 hours. Fertilization usually occurs when the sperm meets the egg in the fallopian tube. Considering its size, it is a long journey for the sperm cells to meet the egg. Eat well and live a healthy lifestyle. Everyday food should be varied and contain plenty of vitamins, dairy products, fruits and vegetables, meat and fish. Especially important is folic acid. Take every opportunity to consult your doctor, midwife or pharmacist, they will recommend what is best for you and your baby.
