No: Fertilization will generally occur in the fallopian tubes and the cells will move to the womb for implantation and growth. Occasionally the cells hang up in the tubes and produce a tubal pregnancy. Very rarely, the cells have been known to attach outside the tubes inside the abdomen.There is no way for the fertilized cells to get into your stomach to develop.
