Once sperm enters egg, the egg splits and forms nuclei of ovum. Sperm nucei and ovum nuclei join and this is fertilization. Until day 15 baby is considered a zygote. Sex of your baby is determined at the moment of fertilization. Zygote is rapidly dividing and is surrounded by the zona pellucida The zona pellucida holds the cells together. The inner solid ball of cells is called the blastocyst. The zona pellucida is replaced by the trophoblast. The zygote is fed by uterine "milk" (or secretions from uterine glands) at this time.

Between days 7-10 from fertilization implantation usually occurs. The amniotic sac begins to form at the time of implantation. The yolk sac and umbilical cord also begin to form.

You may be feeling symptoms of pregnancy now such as nausea, fatigue, and breast tenderness. You may be noticing more frequent urination and increased vaginal discharge. If you have a 28 day cycle, you should note an absence of your menstrual cycle today.
