You at 4 weeks
Conception usually takes place about 2 weeks after your last period, around the time you release an egg (ovulate).
In the first 4 weeks of pregnancy, you probably will not notice any symptoms.
The first thing most women notice is that their period does not arrive, or they may have other signs and symptoms of pregnancy, such as breast tenderness.
Most women confirm the pregnancy with a pregnancy test.
You can work out the date when your baby is due. This date may be changed when you have an ultrasound scan.
