Time does pass by so fast, isn't it?! Now you are 7 weeks pregnant.\u00a0At this point, your little bean is as big as a small blueberry. From as big as a pomegranate seed to as big as a small blueberry. Your little bean surely grows fast. There are other changes going through your body and also more development progress for your little bean. Let's find out more.\r\nAll About 7 Weeks Pregnant\r\nThe Growth Progression\r\n\r\n\r\nThis week big news will be the progress of your baby\u2019s hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs. Although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny baby fingers and toes you're daydreaming about holding and tickling.\r\n\r\nTechnically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has somewhat like a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that's the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a small blueberry.\r\n\r\nIf you could see inside your womb, you'd spot eyelid folds partially covering her peepers. It already has some colour, as well as the tip of her nose and tiny veins beneath parchment-thin skin. Both hemispheres of your baby's brain are growing, and the liver is churning out red blood cells until the bone marrow forms and takes over this role. She also has an appendix and a pancreas, which will eventually produce the hormone insulin to aid in digestion.\r\n\r\nA loop in your baby's growing intestines is bulging into her umbilical cord, which now has distinct blood vessels to carry oxygen and nutrients to and from her tiny body.\r\n\r\nAll of your baby\u2019s important organs have begun to form. The baby\u2019s hair, nipples, eyelids and tongue are starting to grow at this stage. You could also see your baby\u2019s arms and legs forming. At this stage, your baby is about 4-5mm in length.\r\nBody Changes For The Week\r\n\r\n\r\nBladder: You may soon start to notice a more frequent urge to pee. The amount of blood in your body is increasing, creating a lot of extra fluid that ends up in your bladder.\r\n\r\nEyelid: Eyelid folds now partially cover your baby's eyes.\r\n\r\nTailbone: What looks like a tail is actually an extension of your baby's tailbone. It will disappear in the next few weeks.\r\n\r\nUmbilical cord: A loop of your baby's growing intestines is bulging into the umbilical cord.\r\n\r\n\r\nOther Changes?\r\n\r\n \tYour body will continue to change due to the increased pregnancy hormones that are required to sustain your pregnancy.

Discuss with your partner which prenatal appointments he would like to attend with you.\r\n \tBuying maternity bras.\r\n \tDiscuss with your partner if he's okay with your mood and behaviour changes from time to time.\r\n\r\nTips For The Week\r\n\r\n \tMake sure you're getting enough folic acid and other essential prenatal nutrients.\r\n \tDo not use underwire bras as this could cause more pain to your breasts.\r\n \tBuy comfortable cotton maternity bras to support your breasts and back.\r\n \tTry out cotton sports bras which could be actually more comfortable.\r\n \tYou could try taking a warm shower to reduce the uncomfortable feelings associated with your enlarging breasts.\r\n \tAvoid using soap on your nipples as it could dry out the area.
