Pregnancy Symptoms

Few of the symptoms which you may notice at seventh week are:

One sided pain in abdomnen

One sided pain in your admoninal area is quite common during early pregnancy, especially during the first trimester. Your uterus is constantly expanding to accomadate the growing fetus. Hormonal and other bodily changes can also contribute to this pain. Sometimes, pregnant women suffering from indigestion and acidity often experience one-sided pains. These types of pains and cramps are completely normal.

Bleeding or spotting

Did you observe that you bled slightly? Don’t panic. While this experience can be scary, a bit of bleeding and spotting is quite common during early pregnancy. This happens because your to-be-baby is trying to borrow into the layers of your uterus so that it can find a home where it can grow. This burrowing can result in some spotting which is usually very light. If you experience heavy bleeding with clots, you may need to immediately see your doctor.

Diarrhoea

Most pregnant woman know that constipation as a pregnancy symptom occurs due to fluctuation in hormone levels. But some women can also experience diarrhoea as one of the early gastrointestinal symptoms of pregnancy and is not a cause for concern.

Back Pain

Again, growing uterus is responsible for causing back pain in some pregnant women. As your uterus grows and stretches, the centre of gravity shifts causing pain on your lower back. In addition, the expanding uterus can also sometimes put pressure on a nerve resulting in back pain.

Brain Development:

This week, your baby is in the process of becoming a little genius with the brain developing at a speed of 100 brain cells per minute.
The basic sections of your baby’s brain have started forming even though your baby’s brain will continue to grow long after your baby is born.

Baby’s Digestive system and Lungs:

The digestive system and lungs are also developing this week.

Baby’s Arms & Legs:

Your baby’s arms and legs begin to sprout as a bud this week. They look like paddles more than arms and legs.

Baby’s Mouth:

Baby’s mouth and tongue are being formed along with kidneys being in place which will help start the processing of waste. Very soon your baby will start producing urine. Thankfully, you don’t need to order diapers yet!!!

Your changing body

Multiple bathroom trips are common during pregnancy and happen due to the increasing blood volume in your blood, your ever-expanding uterus which puts pressure on your bladder, as well as hormonal disturbances. Make sure that you stay well hydrated during pregnancy, especially when you experience frequent urination. The chances of contracting urinary infections are very high during pregnancy and drinking a good amount of fluids helps you reduce the risk of contracting UTIs.

Your uterus is stretching and expanding to accommodate your growing baby. The result of all the expansion can cause you to experience mild cramping and is nothing to worry about. In case the cramping becomes severe, you need to consult your gynecologist immediately.

You must be feeling extremely tired and sleepy all the time. Getting up from the bed may feel like a chore. But remember, this is not laziness. Your hormones are all haywire and your body is working extra hard to nourish the little bean within you. Eating healthy, staying hydrated, taking quick power naps, and doing small exercises can help deal with this symptoms

If you are not yet nauseous, consider yourself lucky! Brace yourself, because morning sickness can occur at typically any time of the day, not just in the morning. According to medical experts, 50 to 70% of pregnant women get morning sickness in one form or other, for example vomiting, nausea. Morning sickness is usually at its peak at week 9 and gradually decreases by week 12.

Feeling hungry all the time? As with every other pregnancy symptom, fluctuating hormones are largely responsible for your growing appetite. The progesterone and oestrogen levels are constantly changing which are the culprits behind your seemingly constant hunger.
