Do you know what’s good for you when you are 7 weeks pregnant?
Blueberries. Do you know what’s good for your child? Blueberries. Do you know how big your child is right now? Oh, I know! Like a blueberry, right?
Yes, it is. Just like the fruit itself, your baby’s development is focusing on developing brain cells at this stage.
Maybe that’s why eating blueberries can give you a much better brain function? Doctrine of signatures at its best.
Your baby’s neuron is developing at an accelerated rate
When you are 7 weeks pregnant, compared to the time of conception, your baby is 10,000 times bigger than they were before.
Congratulations but still, blueberry is pretty tiny. Nothing to be excited about. Or is there?
Most of the interesting developments when you are 7 weeks pregnant occur in your baby’s head.
Their neurons are generated at the rate of 100 or more units per minute. It’s impressive, isn’t it?
They start to store their intelligence in and maybe someday, they would swoosh it out. Who knows.
You might be a little bit disappointed last week, seeing your child only grew a head on top of a body. Nothing more and nothing less.
When you are 7 weeks pregnant, they start to grow their own arms and legs. Their limbs are partitioned into a few segments that would properly develop into hand, arm and shoulder.
Nevertheless, it looks more like a paddle than hands though. Same goes with legs.
Their little kidney starts to do hard work
In other news, when you are 7 weeks pregnant your baby’s kidney would start to process out waste from their body.
Which means, soon, they would be urinating inside and that’s important.
Their urine makes up the bulk of amniotic fluid which would protect them from external insult.
Peeing too little or too much, both can cause and be caused by a certain medical condition.
Some people would meet their doctor when they were 7 weeks pregnant while some would be meeting them at a later week.
A few wouldn’t even notice they were pregnant yet especially if they are obese. Weird though, right?
If you manage to set up your appointment with a doctor, get ready to overcome your fear of needles and give every sample (blood, urine) they need.
Tell every single thing during history taking to ensure that your doctor doesn’t miss anything important.
Although being 7 weeks pregnant seems early, it’s imperative for mothers to know what there is in order to take care of themselves better.
