No and Yes: NO, not 2 weeks ago. A woman who is 5 weeks pregnant conceived 3 weeks ago. YES, she has to conceive before becoming pregnant. This is the way pregnancy weeks are counted but don't think about it too much. It means there is no such thing as being 1-2 weeks pregnant. A woman conceives after she ovulates, and that conception date is counted as day 14-15 of her pregnancy. It's just a counting method.
