7 Weeks pregnant

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

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

Your pregnancy at 7 weeks 


What's happening with mum

While you may be lucky enough to miss out on morning sickness you may still find yourself nauseated by certain smells. The hormone estrogen, which is paying a big part in helping the devlopment of your baby, is also heightening your senses, particularly smell. Sometimes even your favourite smells can become overpowering. Try to find some soothing scents, change your shampoo, body lotion etc. to something neutral with no perfume and regularly change your bedding to try to alleviate those stomach churning odours.

If you find you can't venture out or go to bed without worrying about the need to pee you should try to avoid drinks containing caffeine. While the jury is still out on whether it increases the need to pee because of it's diuretic properties, it is a stimulant and will hamper your ability to relax.

While you may not be able to see your bump yet, your weight may fluctuate up or down and while small increases or decreases are normal, if you experience a sudden gain or loss you should consult your doctor. 


What's happening with baby

At this stage baby should measure approximately 5 to 12mm and is really starting to develop. Externally those little lumps and dents are now becoming facial features such as jaw and mouth and even eyelids should be forming this week. Internally the organ continue to develop with the liver beinning the production of red blood cells and the appenix and pancreas beginning to form. The pancreas will play an important role in digestion by producing the insulin hormone.

While it is still too early to tell whether you baby is a boy or a girl, the sex glands will also start to form this week.

The Practicalities

This week is considered the ideal time to arrange for your first ultrasound scan. This will most likely be a transvaginal ultrasound during which time the technician will insert a small lubriated probe into your vagina. This probe uses sound waves to create an image of your baby in orer to check the baby's heartbeat and the health and position of the placenta.

    Is anyone experiencing morning sickness? Magnesium oil rubbed on the bottom of your feet will take it away instantly!!! I am 8 weeks a long now and I am so grateful to know about this all natural cure. I haven`t had morning sickness this severe with my first three pregnancies. This has been a life saver!!!

  • FirstTimeMommy1

    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.

  • tikiberry

    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
