Week 7 starts on day 49 and goes up to day 56.
It is your 8e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 1 centimeter / 0.4 inches
Weight of your baby: 0 gram / 0 ozs

You are now only 7 weeks pregnant but your baby is growing at an astonishing rate of about 1mm per day. In comparison to the rest of the body, the head is now still very big and will remain like this for a while yet. A few weeks ago your baby looked like a tadpole but now he already resembles a tiny person with the stumps of arms and legs and the buttons where his hands and feet will be. By the end of this week your baby will be approximately 7 to 9mm and the palms of his hands will be visible.

The baby's heart has now grown larger and the construction of the brain and spinal cord is almost complete although they have a long way to go until they are the correct size and in the right place. The muscles of the embryo are now so advanced he can move by himself. The genitals of the baby are not yet visible but they are growing. The baby also now has nostrils.

Although the baby might not be so big at this point, your uterus might be. This means you may to have to urinate more frequently as the bladder is under more pressure from the growing uterus. All the internal organs have to change position to accommodate the uterus and although you may feel these changes, it shouldn't cause any pain.

Because of the increased hormone production now taking place you may experience a variety of symptoms. One look at a teenager with acne and you will realize the problems this can cause. However, you can rest assured that your body is working hard to redress this balance.

There is an ultrasound available at seven weeks which is performed not via the abdomen but vaginally where your baby's heartbeat is visible as a flashing light. However, this early scan is normally only performed if you have previously had a miscarriage, have vaginal bleeding or are worried excessively.

You should not worry too much if you experience a little blood loss as there can be many causes for this. Old blood from when fertilization occurred and also blood vessels burst during intercourse can cause a spotting of blood or a pinkish discharge which shouldn't cause any pain.

If however, blood loss is heavy or prolonged or is it is accompanied by abdominal cramps or pain you should contact your doctor or care giver immediately.

Today I am 7 weeks with baby #3. My fiance and I had suffered a miscarriage back in January of this year and we are both 100% terrified (although very excited as well) to see where this pregnancy leads us... Any advice on how to ease my mind?

I know that I had my period on July 13th 2016 and on August I missed the whole month of my period. And now its September. Should I be aware of this? Am I pregnant? I`m super bloated everyday now I puke sometimes when I eat. I have the feeling of nausea all day long. And I just wanna sleep. I also had cramps during the ending of august and now its gone somehow? Can someone tell me what`s going on? I might be a first time mommy. I need help to know I`m there.

I have a question.. My last normal period was 6th. July and then it was late in 10th. August but for only two days.. Then about 7 days after the 10th. My breasts became extremely sore and tender so I did a pregnancy test on the 23 red. August and it said I was pregnant. Still in disbelief I did three more tests and they all were positive. Now my question is.. IF I AM PREGNANT.... HOW FAR ALONG AM I??? Help

I can relate. I will be 38 in Feb 2016, and a day and half from bwing 7 weeks. Have a 19yo daughter in college, and a soon to be 12yo boy. My fiance is going to be 40 in a March, and has two daughters, ages 22 and the 16. We have wanted and tried for about 6 months. Iwas just about to give up hope and decided to stop trying, and a did a little meditating to a higher power (I`m not a believer IN `God`), but do have a connection with the universe..anyway...well we decided to stop trying and bam.....next month I`m pregnant. :-) We are so happy and excited.

Congrats to you and your family!
