7 Weeks Pregnant: What is Happening in Week 7 of Your Pregnancy?

Video taken from the channel: Consumer Health Digest

Baby development at 7 weeks. Wink, wink. The main parts of the eye that allow your baby to see – the cornea, iris, pupil, lens, and retina – start developing this week, and they’re almost fully formed just a few weeks later. Rumble, rumble. Your baby’s stomach and esophagus start to form.

The esophagus is the tube that moves food from your baby’s mouth. Week 7 of your pregnancy is a period of important changes for both you and your baby. While not much is obvious from the outside, on the inside your body is preparing to nurture your child for the.

Pregnancy Symptoms Week 7. Frequent urination. Between the nausea and the need to pee, you’re still spending a lot of time in the bathroom these days. The pregnancy hormone hCG is increasing the blood flow to your pelvic area — good news if you’re up for having sex — and that in turn affects that other flow. At this point, you are well into your first trimester and may be suffering from morning sickness. Seventy to eighty percent of all pregnant women experience some form of morning sickness, which is caused by the increased amount of hormones in your body.

At 7 weeks, a baby is a little more than 1/3 of an inch long (about 1 centimeter). 1  That’s about the size of a standard blueberry. Verywell / Bailey Mariner Still so tiny, by the end of this week your baby-to-be will be about doubled the size of last week. Body systems and physical features continue to develop. 2 .

Being 7 weeks pregnant can cause a whole range of symptoms. Some are no biggie and some can make it difficult to get through your day. These are a few of the most widespread: Nausea. Morning sickness may be going strong at week 7 of pregnancy. Your Pregnancy Week-by-Week Want to know when you can feel your baby’s first kick or when you’ll have your first ultrasound?

Read on to learn more about what you can expect to happen with you and your baby-to-be every week of your pregnancy; each one brings new developments and milestones when you’re expecting. At 7 weeks pregnant, morning sickness may be kicking in, and your baby has doubled in size since last week. How Big is Your Baby at 7 Weeks? Your baby is 0.31 inches long and weighs 0.04 ounces this week. That’s about the size of a Sweethearts candy.

Your baby at 7 weeks. By 7 weeks, the embryo has grown to about 10mm long from head to bottom. This measurement is called the crown-rump length. The brain is growing rapidly and this results in the head growing faster than the rest of the body. The embryo has a large forehead, and the eyes and ears continue to develop.

Week 7 is a big week for your baby: a typically developing baby will go through a growth spurt right around this time, doubling in size and beginning to develop the structures that will become arms, legs, and major internal organs. At this time, your baby’s heart is already pumping blood!

Most early pregnancy symptoms begin making their appearance around week 6, but every woman – and every pregnancy – is different, so many may begin earlier or later for you (or not at all, if you’re lucky).

  • I just wish if I could enjoy pregnancy, constant nausea, dizziness and getting tired over everything, is making me sad. I’m 7 weeks pregnant.

  • I understand the talk of mentioning miscarriage in this video may be offensive and trigger some people….but its a reality. Some women may not know that they should be taking it easy around this time. I for sure didn’t and this is my third pregnancy. Its an informational video meant to educate and give us some insight to what’s going on inside of us right now….and what things to look out for and what’s ok to do….wheres the crime??? Lol pregnancy is beautiful but its nothing to be taken lightly. I’d rather be educated and know how to conduct myself then to live in a fantasy or plain ignorance..just saying…take care of yourselves ladies

  • I am 7 weeks 3 days today am feeling sick and light headed all the time ohh,thanks so much for theses videos they helped me through my 2nd pregnancy!am looking forward to this one!

  • The wording in this video is appalling. It’s one thing to acknowledge miscarriage and a totally different thing to include it as ‘one of the main complications this week’. And what’s with ‘WHEN you start bleeding’??? How about ‘IF you start bleeding’? This is the poorest pregnancy video I have ever seen. And it’s a shame because it all started off OK.

  • I’m 7 weeks today, and it is my first pregnancy. I’m gonna see my little bundle of joy next week -I am so happy… Thanks for the information. By the way, can pregnant woman eat spicy and sour food, caramel ice cream from Haagen Daaz, and instant noodle?

  • Hopefully I am 7 weeks pregnant i hope for a healthy baby �������������������� delivery in september 2018 inshallah,, i need ur prayers of alll ��������������������������

  • Jesus lord, is really good
    When his holy spirit lives in you.
    If you dont know him meet him. you wont regret it
    may he bleess my lil one growing. amen

  • Not sure why people wouldn’t want to know that a miscarriage is most common at week 7 so they know to be extra cautious that week

    I say this as someone who has already gone through a miscarriage, and yes I know it doesn’t affect men physically but don’t you dare say expectant father’s aren’t affected by miscarriages too

  • There’s absolutely no data suggesting that normal exercise is harmful in the 1st trimester. Why the caution to only walk and swim? I run and lift weights as usual.

  • If you want to become a mother, then get 100% treatment in Ayurveda, become a mother in just one month, that is, the womb will stop, you can call to get medicine 9554112863-

  • Im about 7 weeks pregnant with my 5th child at 43. Im praying for strength and a healthy baby. Not sure if I can do natural childbirth. Im no spring chicken ��

  • 7 weeks 1 day today and SO NAUSEOUS. Even thinking about food makes me sick, but smelling food is 100x worse. Going for my first ultrasound on Wednesday and just hoping everything looks okay! I’m so thankful for these week by week videos, Charlotte has the sweetest spirit! ��

  • Im 7 weeks and 3 days just found out im pregnant and ive been taking drugs everyone is telling me to abort it is it that dangarous even if i stop everyting completely? Please help

  • 1 in 4 women experience a miscarriage. It isn’t fear mongering. I think women should be aware of it and know the symptoms so they aren’t as shocked or devastated if it happens. I had a miscarriage and 2 months later I conceived again, carrying that one to term. 5 years later and I am pregnant again. I am well aware the risk of miscarriage increases if you’ve already had one so I’m not gonna freak out if it happens again. Nothing wrong with understanding things and keeping your emotions guarded.
    A miscarriage is much like a heavy, painful period. Big difference between that and light implantation spotting.

  • I remember when i thought i was 14 weeks and went for an ultrasound and the lady said baby does not have feet. I got so scared later on i found out i was just 7 weeks. Now i am waiting for my 2nd hopefully everything turns fine aswell. I am probably 4 weeks tho

  • Going to second ultrasound tomorrow morning to check on baby. The first ultrasound showed a lower heartbeat and too much amniotic fluid. The ultrasound tech was really not reassuring at all just sullen. He didnt point out anything on the baby but the heartbeat and the issues. I have to see the same tech tomorrow. Please pray for my baby and that the visit is pleasant this time. Thank you so much im very worried

  • For all those people complaining miscarriage is not what they want to hear well, it’s for women ( high percentage at that) who have experienced this and want to know the truth for next time. Truth ain’t hiding just coz you don’t want to hear it.

  • Hi I went to doctor 2 weeks ago and didnt see heart beat I was 5 weeks at that time so today I’m going again very nervous, praying to god I can hear heart beat

  • When I heard miscarriage is most common this week my mind started racing into fear and stress. Not what I wanted to hear today �� it can happen anytime but now I’m freaking out.

  • I’m 6 weeks and 6 days pregnant with my first baby and I’m 26. The nausea and bloating is so bad I can hardly eat or drink. And I just started a new job 2 weeks ago

  • Thanks for the education and thanks for mentioning about miscarriage! I’m at the sixth week so it’d good to expect what would happen next to me and the baby…

  • I look forward to watching your videos every Wednesday! (every Wednesday I enter a new week) I genuinely love them so much they get me all excited love the positive energy! ����

  • Today i am 7 weeks and 2 days pregnant. My cramping stopped a couple days ago. From today i m feeling a little dizzy, still no morning sickness i guess. I feel hungry all the time. I crave for meat haha.

  • I have had a miscarriage before and I tried again. The bone in my legs hurt a lot but other than that nothing else hurts. I am 6 weeks in. I have hypothyroidism so I am unsure of this affects anything. I am trying to be careful and not move around anywhere. Any tips to avoid miscarriage or to stop the pain on the legs (without any consequences to the baby)???

    Please help ��

  • I feel exhausted. My husband worked through my last pregnancy so never saw how tired i am. This time around with Covid he’s off work so seeing this stage much more than last time.

  • I am 7 weeks and 2days. I had twice miscarriage in the last two years. I had my early scan yesterday and dr. told me there is heart beat☺️ I cried cause I was so happy.

  • Two issues with this video 1. I am a male looking at vids for my wife so maybe less of the your baby. 2. Why drop the miss carrying into it?

  • oh my GOD i m pragnant again and i m 7 weeks pragnant, its my 3rd pragnancy and my 2nd son is only 6 months old…. and i dont feel better

  • There is so many ignorant people pissed off at the mentioning of miscarriage smh
    The very idea of miscarriage can be scary but these are professional educators who are here to inform everyone on the growth and development of our babies from one week to the next as well as any possible risk factors.
    If you like the idea keeping your ignorant heads in the clouds and have everything hidden or sugar-coated for you then cool stay away from these videos BUT dont act pissed off when and if you do end up having a miscarriage! Again, these videos are for educational purposes and in all reality you should have all known that when you clicked on the link.
    Also FYI miscarriage can happen at any point and time during pregnancy same with SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome)
    Just like miscarriage there is nothing you can say or do to prevent SIDS if you all don’t like “real talk” stay away from these videos!!!!

  • I had a miscarriage around 7 to 8 weeks last year and now I’m pregnant again(7 weeks)….im very paranoid of losing another child��

  • I’m 6weeks 6days but my first ultrasound states I’m 7weeks 3days I’m soo nervous��…. I’m also experiencing bleeding at night my Dr says there’s no cause for alarm my baby is fine

  • Two days away from 7 weeks…and i hate the morning sickness part..fresh sliced lemons help alot…but i get immediate hunger pains alot thru the day..any snack ideas ladies? Blessed and grateful too��

  • Miscarriage happens a lot in the first trimester. Probably best to come to grips with that so it doesn’t blow your mind if it happens. We all want our little embryos to turn into fetuses but we should keep in mind that these things happen.

  • I am going to see the doctor on Thursday to my calculations I am in my 7th week. But I am scared I don’t have any symptoms. And this is my 3rd pregnancy. It’s not at all like the previous ones. Is it normal.?

  • Flat tummy if it’s your first, maybe second child. When it comes to the third or fourth…you’ll look 6 months pregnant by week 5.��

  • Im 7 weeks and 1 day due on January 31, Im thankful to Jehovah for this blessing hoping everything will be fine in the name of Jesus Christ and heavenly father Jehovah.

  • I’ve had 3 children and 3 miscarriages. The last loss was so unexpected because I had had a reassurance scan at 7 weeks and it had a heartbeat:'(

    Good news is I have had some definite symptoms such as tender breasts, mood swings, nausea etc. which I didnt have with my losses. I have a scan on Saturday. Hoping this baby is strong enough to stay <3

  • I followed these videos during my pregnancy. My daughter is nearly 14 months old now! ��
    These videos make me so broody. ��
    I want another so bad but I think I’d feel guilty at this point, I want more time with my first baby. But she keeps taking a book out the bookshelf that had a baby on (tales of a midwife) and keeps kissing it ��❤️

    Might be a good video idea.

  • nothing that can make you feel more alone—or stressed out—than trying to conceive. While you might have spent the better part of your youth doing all that you could to not get pregnant, when you’re ready to build your family and the going gets tough, it’s normal to have anxiety. Though TTC can feel exhausting, frustrating and lonely, the CDC estimates that more than ten percent of all couples will struggle with fertility—that’s 1 in 10 partnerships.I want to thank God for putting a smile in my face, I have been looking for the fruit of the womb for the pass six years of marriage. I took in last year after taking the pill a dr gave to my husband, he met with a doctor you gave us assurance that I will get pregnant within a month after taking a particular pill. But I still call it magical pill, because it happen the way he said it. All thanks to God I have my own baby now and is a boy. You too can contact him if you have the same issue on [email protected] gmail.com or call and WhatsApp him on +2348128107710

  • seven weeks today although have been very stressed this whole pregnancy, quit all forms of smoking so it’s been harder to cope with my anxiety. I am very nervous i just pray for a healthy pregnancy, my nausea has ultimately alleviated although I still can not eat certain foods without the thought of gagging. Peanut butter is my best friend! I think I will have a pretty mellow pregnancy; I only suffered until I got these new meds from my OB to help with nausea and man have they done wonders! Please pray I can calm myself down for this poor little baby, I want to be as peaceful as possible.

  • The information covers not doing hard physical activities to avoid miscarriages and she is telling only for awareness take things positively

  • Wow I got here at the right time. I’m 7weeks and 2days today and it’s my first pregnancy. I’m super excited about this video at least I know Wat and Wat to avoid to prevent miscarriage and I’m happy about the whole pregnancy thing ��

  • I’m 7 weeks today. Having my first scan very soon. I’m currently not exercising and I’m too nauseous and sore. I’m going to stay positive and ignore the mis carriage part

  • I’ve recently found out I’m pregnant
    .and I’m already at 7 weeks heard my baby’s heartbeat which was awesome.. My GOD is an awesome GOD

  • I am 7 weeks and 4 days pregnant. I feel so strange because my early regnancy symptoms have just started to go away. I am very nervous that it leads to misscariage ��

  • I am 7 weeks 2 days when it was 4 weeks 5 days Dr did scan n nothing was there she did ectopic pregnancy scan and it was negative soon going to visit Dr again little bit scare

  • I remember my little bit was just a little bean. Now I’m 25 weeks and he is Sparta kicking my bladder. Won’t stop moving, it’s feels so weird and uncomfortable.

  • Just found out I was pregnant today and if my calculations is right I will be 7 weeks 2 days! We were struggling for baby #2 but now I’m just full of joy and praying for a healthy pregnancy!! ��������

  • I’m 7 weeks going on 8, have ultrasound coming up. Praying for them to hear a heartbeat. Cuz my beta levels aren’t rising like supposed to

  • I am 7 weeks tomorrow and feel so awful. This is my first pregnancy and I honestly just want to sleep all day every day. I have constant 24/7 severe nausea…haven’t thrown up yet surprisingly but the constant urge to vomit it really getting me down. I hope this doesn’t last forever

  • I’m seven weeks pregnant today my 3rd baby. I’m exited my little bundle of joy. I’m very healthy I don’t have morning sickness I don’t have nausea or vomiting. I had appetite I eat well heavy foods. The only thing I have is fatigue and feeling sleepy

  • Well.. im as idiot as i can be.. I just got panicky about miscarrying my pregnancy when i heard about it.. I should stop watching information on YouTube. This does only make me nervous.. damn ��

  • I had three miscarriages before and now im 7 weeks pregnant. I went to see the doctor when i was 5weeks and during my ultrasound my doc told me she couldn’t detect any coz its so small. So she asked me to come after one month with some medicines. So waiting eagerly. But during my 6weeks i had a very bad cramping continuously for 3 days but thank God no bleeding and over bloating too. Apart from that no symptoms at all. Im feeling scared if my little one is ok��

  • I found out I was pregnant 3 weeks ago and I am 7-8 weeks. My breast are still extremely sore, horrible abdominal pains and back pains.when I went to my dr she didn’t check me but she just said everything seems fine. Should I go to a dr different dr maybe?

  • I’m seven weeks right now with HG also. I’ve been throwing up all time time. I lost my son at 20 weeks with my last pregnancy, so please pray that this baby stays healthy.
