7 weeks pregnant

What’s happening this week...

baby 7 weeks pregnant ultrasound

Your baby

Your baby is the size of a bean and can move around, although you won't feel it until you're well into the second trimester. It also has a tiny tail, but don’t worry, it will soon disappear!

By this time your baby’s limb buds will be flattening, like paddles, getting ready to form digits for his fingers and toes. As the limb buds lengthen your baby will develop his elbows.

The black dots that will form your baby’s eyes are now visible on an ultrasound and its jaw has also been formed.

You

7 weeks pregnant symptoms can leave you on an emotional rollercoaster; up one minute and down the next, this is mostly due to the changing level of hormones in your body. This is a normal part of the early stages of pregnancy.

Moderate exercise may be an idea to help relieve stress and your body cope with the demands of pregnancy. But this isn’t the best time to start a contact sport! Read more about how to exercise safely.

Try to eat well, and keep yourself in tip-top condition in these early stages of pregnancy.

What to think about

You may want to start telling family and friends that you are pregnant and it is a matter of personal choice but there are good reasons to keep it quiet at this early stage.

You might want to take a break and get some sun, so if you’re thinking about taking a holiday make sure you travel safely.

Take extra care over cooking preparation. Food hygiene is really important at this stage as food-borne illnesses may affect the health of your baby.

Hello, I'm 33 and seven weeks

Hello, I'm 33 and seven weeks into my first pregnancy. I've been feeling cramps right through the seven weeks, but last night they woke me up and I was unable to go back to sleep because of them. I've been having a pink show also, which started a week ago, which is nothing to panic about according to my midwife. I'm starting to feel a little sick late afternoon/late evening, which lasts all evening on and off. I'm a little over anxious, due to being a worrier (I worry about anything), but I'm really trying my best to chill out about it all. It does help that I can't really say I feel pregnant - so part of it hasn't really sunk in yet. Something tells me I won't be saying that for much longer!

I'm pregnant with my 3rd and i'm worried because i'm not sick, i feel a little weird on a morning till i eat, my breasts have grown and are quite heavy and sore, and i'm bloated by the end of the evening, but apart from that, nothing much. OOOH i forgot, i am hungry all the time, and if i'm not wanting to eat i'm asleep.

rachie011 - what you

rachie011 - what you described sounds like spotting to me, which is quite normal in early weeks I've heard. But if you're really worried about anything at all, the best way to put your mind at rest is to have a chat with your doctor xx

ABDOMINAL PAIN

Is it normal to have abdominal pain at 7 weeks, it feels a bit like period pain, I have suffered with IBS quite badly last year, I am being scanned tomorrow as there is a chance it may be ectopic, as you can imagine I am worried sick. I have no bleeding just this pain?
