Your baby this week

  • Your baby is now a little bigger than the top of a pencil eraser.
  • Most of the growth this week is concentrated in the head and your baby’s brain is continuing to become more complex.
  • Your baby’s arms, legs, hands and feet are taking shape. Arms and legs that were little buds last week, now appear to be the start of hands and feet.
  • At 7 weeks, the sex of your baby is still undetermined. Although the tissue that forms the genitals is apparent now, it wiil not become recognisable until around week nine.

 

Your body this week

  • In week 7 your uterus is now twice as large as it was pre-pregnancy and your body now carries around 10 percent more blood than it did before you took-in.
  • You may still be experiencing some of the early pregnancy symptoms frequent urination, fatigue, breast tenderness, excess saliva, nausea and vomitting, heartburn, constipation etc.
  •  These symptoms should dissapear by the end of the first trimester, you are almost there.
  • Now you should already know what hospital you intend to use for prenatal care. Prenatal care is vital to ensuring a healthy start for your baby and a healthy pregnancy for you.
  • You should now book an appointment for your first prenatal visit, if you have not already done so.
  • Your first prenatal visit should normally be carried out by your  hospital antenatal clinic around the 12th to 14thweek of pregnancy, but this can vary greatly depending on your chosen hospital or medical center you are using.
