When you get pregnant which part of your body does the sperm go into?

The sperm goes into the vagina, goes through the cervix, and meets the egg in some part of the uterus, usually. Sometimes, it can fertilize an egg all the way up in the fallopian tubes, which is called an ectopic pregnancy, and has to be aborted because of risk to the mother. The fetus couldn't survive in an ectopic pregnancy anyway, as there is no nourishment and no room to grow and develop.

Once the egg, under normal circumstances, is fertilized, the egg then travels to the spot in the uterus that it wants to call home. This is where implantation occurs. Some could be high, some could be low in the uterus. Some right smack in the middle.
