Week 7 of Your Pregnancy


Days to go



Pregnancy Symptoms

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

One sided pain in abdomen

In the initial period of pregnancy, any aches and pains can be alarming, especially when it happens in the abdomen. However, you can take relief in the fact that such pain, especially one-sided, is common and can occur due to stretching uterine muscles or even digestive disturbances such as indigestion or acidity.

Frequent urination

The reason behind frequent bathroom trips during early pregnancy is the increased blood flow to the pelvic area and your kidneys. They work better than they used to, leading you to visit the bathroom often. It continues till the third trimester as the growing uterus puts pressure on your bladder.


Your uterus is slowly expanding to make more space for your baby. It may lead to mild cramping during the early days of pregnancy.


No, you are not imagining! Fatigue and sleepiness are the most common symptoms of pregnancy. Blame it on the hormones that make your body work extra hard to nourish your tiny tot. You don't have to do anything other than taking rest, eat nutritious food, and embrace your pregnancy.


Many women experience nausea and morning sickness during pregnancy. When the symptom hits, it's loud and unpleasant. This nausea or morning sickness can hit you at any time of the day. Take rest, and drink plenty of water to beat nausea during pregnancy.


Although rare, diarrhea is one of the pregnancy symptoms. Changes in hormones, diet, and medications can result in digestion-related issues such as diarrhea.

Food aversions and cravings

Cravings can happen due to raised hormone levels, nutrition deficiency, and a sudden spike in hCG during the early days. The same factors contribute to aversions during pregnancy. You may feel sick and nauseous because of the smells capable of churning your stomach, and they affect your appetite. However, there is no specific explanation of what causes food cravings during pregnancy.

Tender breasts

Are you still feeling that heaviness and soreness in your breasts? It is normal and is a common indication that the hormones are on a big-time ride inside your body. It may continue till the end of the first trimester.

Excessive thirst

Your body is working harder than before to nourish your growing baby. The need for nutrition and water will also increase at this time. Hence, it is common to feel excessive thirst during pregnancy, which indicates that your body needs water and fluids. Stay hydrated, and always carry a water bottle along with you.

Mood swings

One time happy and one time sad? Mood swings are the most commonly experienced symptom during pregnancy. Again, blame the hormonal ups and downs inside the body. You can not do much but talk to your husband/family, meditate and do yoga to stay calm. Mood swings can continue throughout the pregnancy for some women.

Indigestion and Heartburn

It is not uncommon to have a burning sensation in your chest and throat. It can be because of indigestion and heartburn during pregnancy's first trimester. Your body is up to so much, like taking care of a whole new life inside. So, these changes are common and will end as your pregnancy progresses.

Baby's Development

Baby’s Length: 1.3 to 1.8 cm
Baby’s Weight: 0.5 g

Your baby is now about the size of a blueberry! This may still look tiny but its now 10,000 times bigger than it was at conception! How about that for perspective?

This is an exciting week as your baby’s brain registers the biggest growth. The brain cell production increases at around 100 brain cells being churned out per minute.The baby is starting to look more human. It now has two dark spots for eyes, two holes that will become its nostrils, and the beginning of lips can be seen as well.

Your baby’s limbs begin elongating and will soon form shoulders, arms, legs and knees. At the end of those limbs, tiny webbed hands and feet are becoming defined too. Although at this juncture they look more like paddles than arms and legs.

The kidneys are in place now and will soon begin processing the waste once the baby starts producing urine soon.
