7 weeks pregnant

The embryo continues to develop at a dizzying pace and is now 10,000 times larger than at the time of conception. This week, among other things, his arms, legs and brain form. With you, your breasts grow faster after 7 weeks of pregnancy than when you were 14.

Your baby in week 7 of your pregnancy

The embryo looks less and less like a tadpole and is increasingly shaped like a human. Until this week there were some kind of buttons where the limbs should be. Arms and legs grow out here in week 7 of your pregnancy. The hands begin to take shape and within a few weeks the elbows, knees and feet also become visible.

Did you know that the embryo already has nostrils in the 7th week of your pregnancy? It is not yet nose, it can not smell and admittedly: it does not look very nice yet … But the idea is fantastic, right?

You in week 7 of your pregnancy

The placenta begins to take over the task of the yolk sac and increasingly acts as a food factory for your baby. The placenta also continues to spread with the hCG pregnancy hormone , resulting in binge eating . According to the stereotype you get craving for ice cream, chocolate and pickles (with whipped cream ?), But it can be anything. Something that you did not find special at all until a few weeks ago, can now no longer be resisted. On the other hand, you can no longer smell or see some products. No ideal combination with that nasty (morning) nausea .

Relatively speaking your baby grows faster, but in an absolute sense your breasts win. The cause lies with your changing hormone balance , faster blood flow and accumulation of fat. Some women get a full cup at this stage of pregnancy. Maybe you (or your partner) think this is a positive side effect … Unfortunately, your breasts are very sensitive .

Tips for You This Week

Know how much to gain

You don’t look like you’re with child yet, but you may have gained a few pounds. That’s okay! In fact, women with an average BMI of 18.5-24.9 should gain 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy.

During your first trimester, your baby is still tiny, which means you don’t need to gain more than a total of 2 to 4 pounds.

However, if you’re suffering from morning sickness, you might not gain an ounce — or might even lose a little. That’s also fine, as long as your appetite picks up and you make up for those pounds in the second trimester.Cramping is usually normal

If you experience abdominal cramps and pain while you’re expecting, it’s not necessarily cause for concern. Cramping is normal during the first trimester, but if it occurs with shoulder or neck pain or if it’s accompanied by contractions, dizziness or discharge, call the doc.Safely manage skin problems

Thanks to pregnancy hormones, you might be experiencing some pretty wacky complexion complexities — from excessive oiliness to excessive dryness, or both at the same time, from acne to blotchiness, and most strangely, to melasma, a patchy skin discoloration.

If that pregnancy radiance you’ve always read about hasn’t kicked in, a facial might be just the ticket to getting that glow going. Most facials are fine as long as you let your aesthetician know you’re expecting; that way she can skip those treatments, such as peels, that might irritate your ultrasensitive skin.

The added benefit of that deep facial cleansing? It’s a great stress reliever. You glow, girl!Know your workout no-nos

Here’s a quick list of some workout no-nos: Don’t exercise on your back after the first trimester (don’t worry — we’ll remind you again when you’re in your second trimester). Don’t hold your breath while you exercise. Don’t use jerky or twisting motions, which could add insult to your already stressed-out joints. And don’t challenge your sense of balance or risk any sort of trauma to your abdomen.

Lastly, keep in mind that soon you’ll have less oxygen available for exercise, so stop when you become fatigued — and don’t get overheated.Fruit is always your friend

Not only does nature’s sweetest bounty contain essential vitamins and other nutrients that are good for you and your baby, but it also plays a starring role in keeping you regular.

A good nutritional rule of thumb when it comes to fruits and veggies: Stronger colors spell better nutrition. But more often than not, it’s what’s inside that counts. So while a cantaloupe pales in comparison with a red apple on the outside, the inside tells a different story; the deeply hued flesh of the melon way outscores the white apple in vitamins A and C and mineral content.

Select your produce by the color of its “inner” rainbow when shopping, and you’ll find nutrients worth their weight in gold.Indulge healthy cravings

What should you do when cravings strike? That depends. Give in, if you’re lucky enough to be craving fruits or vegetables. Try to vary things a bit if you can, but don’t worry if your taste buds won’t take the bait.

But try to resist your cravings if they’re sending you to a bowl of sugar-frosted cereal or a bag of kettle-cooked potato chips. Eat Cheerios topped with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey, or dive into a bag of soy crisps, which are packed with protein.

If your cravings are for something you shouldn’t have now that you’re expecting — like unpasteurized soft cheese or sashimi — sub something that comes as close as possible to the object of your affections, like pasteurized feta and teriyaki salmon.

If you find yourself craving substances that aren’t food, like clay, ashes or laundry starch, contact your practitioner. Such cravings could indicate a condition called pica, which is triggered by a nutritional deficiency.Cater to your aversions

If you can’t stomach the thought of eating a chicken breast, you’re not alone. Pregnancy aversions are very common.

Just do what works. Keep your choices bland and boring, find substitutes for foods you have an aversion to — think fruit if you can’t stand the sight of veggies — and rejoice if your aversions are to foods that you’re supposed to be avoiding anyway (brie aversion, anyone?).
