My Pregnancy Week 7

Pregnancy Week 7

Can you believe your baby has doubled in size since last week? By week seven, your little one measures approximately one-third of an inch long and has developing arms and legs, along with teeny, tiny hands and feet. Your baby also has an appendix, intestines, a pancreas, and a liver.ย Both hemispheres of your baby’s brain are growing. Nasal pits are forming. Overall, it’s a big week for growth!

This week, your baby’s eyes will also start to become more fully formed, and now have a retina and lens attached. Thin veins will also begin to appear underneath your baby’s translucent skin.

You may have heard that embryos have something like a small tail. This is true! It is an extension of the tailbone, and each week it is becoming smaller and smaller until, in a few short weeks, it will disappear entirely.

And though your baby’s genital tubercle is present, and his or her sex was determined at conception, it is still too early to determine whether you are having a girl or a boy just by sight.

    As long as you do not start bleeding,it should be fine,my doctor told me to use a heating pad but only on my back and if it relieves the pain,it is only do to the growing of the uterus and sometimes it can be very painful !

    well guys bad news- I did miscarry the baby- when i went back for the second ultrasound they said just prepared just in case we don’t see the heartbeat- and still we didnt see it- in fact the ultrasound looked completely different than last week- the baby was non existant and they gave me 3 options. one was to let the baby come out on its own, 2 was to do the D&C and three was to take 4 pills vaginally 3 doses every 3 hours. about a half hour before the second dose I felt the baby come out and then i was in so much pain after that. The doctor gave me vicoden but that bearly worked- the pain is so horrible.

    Oh and this is my first pregnancy

    I went to the doctor yesterday, and we couldn’t see the baby’s heartbeat when I got the ultrasound. According to the ultrasound I would be 7 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I could see the little fetus in there just no heartbeat. The doc scheduled me to come back next week on June 13th, so we’ll see how it goes. But before I left he told me that it didn’t look good at all, like the baby isn’t going to make it. So since yesterday I really don’t know what to think or do. Been really sad and down. This morning when I woke up, I just didn’t feel the same. Our body knows when something is wrong and my body seems to react to the news it gets, so this morning I didn’t even wake up feeling pregnant. I’m still going to stay positive, so we’ll see what happens when I got to my appointment next week
