Your Ultrasound in Week 7
  • At 7 week pregnancy, you can see the baby-to-be is developing in a bubble within the gestational sac.
  • The bubble you see around the embryo is the amniotic cavity, filled with amniotic fluid.
  • This liquid environment gives your baby room to grow and move.
  • The amniotic fluid also protects your baby-to-be from any external pressure on the abdomen.
  • The black area you notice inside the head is part of the developing neural tube.

Your Baby in Week 7
  • Did you know that your little one is approximately quarter of an inch in length at 7 week pregnancy? Amazing, right?
  • The size of your baby's head may seem abnormally large in proportion to the rest of the body right now. But that is nothing to be worried about. That is just how a baby develops.
  • Your baby is now developing something that resembles a tail. Don't be alarmed as this is just a part of the baby's tailbone, which will slowly disappear in the coming weeks.
  • You will be amazed to know that your baby now has a fold that resembles eyelids and an adorably tiny tip of the nose too!
  • Not to forget, your baby now has a mouth and a tongue as well. The little one's teeth and palate are forming in full swing and his ears are developing too.
  • The umbilical cord is working in full gear as it has its own set of blood vessels which carry nutrients and oxygen to the baby.
  • There's more... While your baby has already developed pancreas and an appendix, the liver is moving blood about until a bone marrow comes around to take over.
  • Your baby's brain is steadily growing too.

Symptoms You Might Feel in Week 7
  • Swelling and spots on breasts : Are you noticing a striking change on your breasts? They have been steadily growing in size, yes, and will continue to. You will see that your areola is now darker in color and has developed some spots on it too. These spots keep the nipples lubricated and supple. They are going to disappear with time, of course.
  • Heartburn : The hormones are having a party inside your body, as a result the muscles on top of your stomach tend to relax a bit. This causes the digestive acids and fluids to just rise back up. Result? That burning sensation in your heart. Stick to a light diet and have lots of water. Antacids can be an option too, but after consulting the doctor.
  • Drooling : Do you wake up every morning with a drool all over your face? Don't worry about this too much as it generally stops with the first trimester. For the day time, you may want to keep a few tissues handy.
  • Cravings & aversions : Are you hating the sight of your favourite food now? Do you feel like eating a specific dish, for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Don't worry. Cravings and aversions to food and smell are quite common in pregnancy.

Your Body & Health in Week 7
  • There are a lot of changes taking place inside your womb.
  • But believe it or not, your uterus is twice as big compared to week 6.
  • You are probably noticing a slight increase in your weight right about now.
  • Or wait, did you just lose some weight despite the fact that you are pregnant?
  • Relax, such ups and downs are quite normal in the initial weeks of pregnancy, thanks to nausea and morning sickness.
  • Even if you are not able to eat really well, you must not forget to have all the essential vitamin supplements prescribed to you by the doctor, folic acid being the most important of them all.
  • Try and include a good variety of fruits, vegetables, dairy products and other non-vegetarian food items in your daily diet.
  • You could consult your doctor and make a diet chart including food items that will provide all essential nutrients to you, at this stage.
  • Remember to have small meals at frequent intervals.
