7 Weeks Pregnant Mother
Because your body changes so quickly during pregnancy, it’s hard to tell if the new pain or illness is “good,” or if you should call your doctor or go to the emergency room.
Take a look at our list of symptoms when you are 7 weeks pregnant that you should never overlook.
Additionally, keep in mind the truth of the matter: if you are concerned, follow your gut and seek advice.
Your urination is more regular than before this week. This is all because of the pregnancy hormone hCG, which is increasing the blood flow to your pelvic area.
But always keep drinking, even with these toilet trips. Because your body and your baby require the most essential amount of water.
Many women have grown their breasts to a full cup size by the seventh week of their pregnancy.
This is good if they weren’t creating any kind of tenderness or ache.
- Some hormones are to blame for this condition of the breast and more blood flow to it.
- You may also observe the areola (the dark area around the nipple), which is getting darker and larger.
- It also has little goose-bump-like spots.
- There are sweat glands too that provide lubrication for all the important changes when you start breastfeeding.
You may also be able to see your skin better and glowing than ever. Your hair is shinier than before your pregnancy.
These changes are all because of the additional oestrogen every pregnant mother makes in her body.
Over 80% of women experience some kind of nausea or morning sickness in the early days of pregnancy, and about half have some vomiting too.
- This morning sickness generally goes away by the second trimester. It doesn’t just happen in the morning, but it can happen at any time of day during the first trimester to any mother.
- Keep trying to make your symptoms controllable by eating smaller, more frequent meals and drinking sufficient water in small sips all day long.
- And avoid lying down right after eating.
Fatigue or tiredness can hit you hard in this early time of pregnancy, and there are not many options for you to do something about it.
Try to keep your energy levels at a good level by eating healthy food and (every few hours) drinking ample water.
Practice daily exercise and allow yourself to sleep on the weekend, or you can get a tiny nap when you can.
- The pregnancy hormone progesterone slows down some functions in the body, including digestion.
- Extra digestion time lets you make extra gas, which further makes
- You are more likely to get bloated.
- To avoid all these conditions, try to keep a limit on carbonated drinks and avoid fatty or fried foods.
- You can also eat smaller meals (but eat more often), drink plenty of water, and eat slowly with sufficient chewing of the food.
This is a real pregnancy sign that not everyone notices. Your mouth is watering more these days.
It is said by the doctors that this excess saliva saves your mouth and throat from the frustrating stomach acids that hit you during this first trimester.
Drinking lots of water and using mouthwash can avoid this situation.
