hey this might be kind of a stupid question.. but in general, how soon does weight gain start when pregnent?

and also, on most symptom lists it says that 2 weeks after conception you would start to feel nausious, but is that 2 weeks after that 14 day mark or 2 weeks after sex?

Per your first question, that really depends: on whether we're talking single or multiple births, on a women's general fitness and metabolism, on how much she is eating. But if this is about the risk you wrote in about two weeks ago, then it'd be too soon to see any real weight gain.

Have you yet taken a test if your withdrawal bleed is late?

Per your second question, again, it really depends. Some women feel nauseated right away, within a couple weeks of their risk, others later down the road, and now and then, some pregnant women experience little to no nausea or morning sickness at all.
