Pregnancy week 7

Foetal development at week 7 of being pregnant - Your baby will have grown this week and is about the size of a 5p piece.

You may feeling quite queasy by now. Try eating something bland or starchy like a plain biscuit or cracker. Ginger may also help, try ginger tea or ginger biscuits. You may also be feeling completely exhausted because of all the hormonal changes in your body. You may also feel faint at times and you may completely go off tea and coffee. As your basal metabolic rate (BMR) increases, you may hunger for more calories and protein. Or you may find nausea is putting you eating off certain foods altogether. You will still not be showing at all yet, your clothes might be a bit tight by the evening, but you'll be back to normal by the morning.

Your baby

Your baby's body is straightening from it's earlier comma shape, looking rather like a tadpole and is now covered in a thin layer of translucent calls. Tiny beginnings of eyes, kidneys and lungs are forming. The eyelids are beginning to form and the tip of the nose is distinct. Your baby will have grown this week and is about the size of a 5p piece. The first embryonic movements can be detected by ultrasound.

Hey singlehunny, my friend at work said I was glowing and asked if I was pregnant last Monday she was completely convinced of it and said I looked different, at the time I didn't think I was but did a test last Wednesday and found out I am 6 and a half weeks gone. I can't believe she was right and she has never been pregnant herself. Very strange!!!!
by LOUANNH 10th Dec 2010, 8:35am

by myers08 19th Nov 2010, 5:43pm
i was just wondering if people can really tell your pregnant by just looking at your face, my friend thinks i'm pregnant purly because she said i am glowing and as my boobs have got bigger, does any1 else believe in this glowing??

any advice ? is this normal could the pain and the dizzy spell be linked or i have anything to worry about. its my first baby i dont have my first midwife appointment for 2weeks so could do with some advice.
thanks .

Hi everyone. I thought I would post something on here. I am 6 weeks and 2 days with my first pregnancy and have just had a really hard week. I started bleeding on Monday and getting stomach cramps. I was a crying, worrying mess. I called NHS direct and a nurse called me back to tell me that I might be having a miscarriage. I really don't think that is something you need to hear over the phone when you are already freaking out. So my husband drove us to the hospital as advised where a doctor spoke to me and simply said 'yes you might be miscarrying and to go home and basically wait, there is nothing they can do'. I suppose being new to this and not having told anyone yet that I am pregnant, it felt really lonely and I left there feeling sick with worry.
I was told to go back to my doctor which I did on the Wednesdasy where she also said the same thing, there is nothing we can do. If the bleeding and pain gets worse go back to A&E and to simply rest. It is horrible when no-one has any answers and you are left alone to basically miscarry. The doctor said she will get the hospital to give me a scan as soon as possible.
So after me chasing the hospital I finally got my scan on Thursdsay. I was still bleeding and still had cramps, the bleeding hadn't worsened but wasn't any better. For some reason I didn't feel pregnant anymore and felt really sad and empty. I read up on miscarriages and some are red blood and lots of pain and some are like I was having, lots of brown blood and cramps.
So on Thursday off we went. The lady scanned and said 'there it is' my husband and I were 99% sure I had lost it but to our total shock and joy the baby was there and heartbeat was fine. We couldn't believe it. She also gave me an internal scan and said everything is where it should be and looks fine. She said they have no idea sometimes why we bleed but at this moment the baby is fine. I can't tell you how shocked and happy we were as I truely had resigned myself to the thought of we had lost our baby. I thought I would share this with you to give some of you hope and reasurrance if you also go through this. And also to warn you that there really doesn't seem much support for people when you are thought to be miscarrying. It has been a scary and very emotional week to say the least but things turned out good inthe end and I hope continues. Hugs to you all and hope all is well with yours x

Hey, I'm 7 weeks tmw with my 4th baby so I can hopefully share some info that ive learned over the last ten years. With all my pregnancies I have had quite alot of period type cramping and sharp two of my pregnancies I've had slight bleeding (doctors call spotting). So it is normal for the pains. If they're very severe sharp pains that double you up and stay like that for a while then it can be more serious, although even that may not mean miscarraige.If you bleed it would be quite heavy with clots in if you were miscarrying. I hope that puts your minds at ease! You also have alot of extra discharge when youre pregnant. Usually clear. Also with me and my pregnancies, I found I was slightely bigger around the stomach very soon within the first month...I look bloated and my trousers are tight and it can be uncomfortabe to sleep on your front. Also another point is that when youre pregnant it puts alot of strain on relationships. Men can't understand how you feel and wont be able to sympathise, unless he is particularly kind and considerate it can be difficult because your expectations on your partner increase. I think the key is to be patient with your partner and remember that this is a time when you should be both making the most of being together and watching your baby grow and develop. I've had 2 relationship breakdowns and can say that when the baby was born it put an even bigger strain on my relationship because my partner could never do anything right and I was always annoyed and upset because I felt he wasnt doing enough. No matter what I think its both our jobs to keep the relationship going and be patient with your partner for him to develop a bond and sense of responsibility it doesnt come straight away with him.

hi x im almost 7 weeks pregnant got some stomach pains but its normal. thank god. only one day of morning sickness so far was nasty!!!! :-). m sooooo excited xxx
by XkimyX 25th Aug 2010, 9:14am
hey im just gone 7 weeks :) morning sickness kicked in yesterday morning. im only 16 but this was completely planned. I've found the only thing that i can eat is bread and ice lollies. my boobs have already grown a cupsize and i know im not supposed to yet but i have a bump. cant wait for my scan on 17th september :) feels forever away. i get a lot of stick for this because of my age yet my partner of 3 years doesn't even though he put it there. Was shocked about how little you see your midwife congrats ladies
by Rizz 23rd Aug 2010, 10:25am
I went to see my GP when i first missed my period and am now 7 weeks if i have done my calculations correct. This is my first pregnancy and i am quite anxious as im not sure whats normal or not. The way my surgery works i don't see a midwife until im 9-10weeks, which im surprised about??????
All ive been given is a print out from the GP about foods that i can can't have. Is this quite common for most people???
Feeling very sickly especially when im hungry & feel a little dizzy& extremely tired in the afternoon/evening.

If Anyone can recommend a good book to buy??? - much appreciated x
by freefarcle 18th Aug 2010, 9:27am
Hi I am almost 7 weeks pregnant possibly 6 if my calculations are wrong and made a trip to hospital; last night in floods of tears at about 10 oc clock. I had light watery bleeding ... a small amount in the toilet but mostly as i wiped myself. I also have had cramps like period pains..... I told the doctor it was heavier as i want him to take me seriously and do a scan. He tol;d me the likelihood was that i had miscarried, i burst into tears as did my partner but i do still wonder is there a baby in there still , my boobs are getting less sore and i still feel sick, emargency scan tomorrow so hopefully that will pick up a heartbeat at least ..... please help me x
by leela2110 16th Aug 2010, 5:13pm
I am 7 weeks pregnant, I am not experiencing any morning sickness or lower back pain- the only main symptom is sore breasts! I am however getting brown discharge and slight niggles like mild period pains but they aint really pains just twinges, the Dr assures me this is all nrmal but like any other expectant mother its worrying, i see from other stories it is quite a common thing, but any imput will be much appreciated.
by Jayee 12th Aug 2010, 11:05am
Hello everyone! I found out I was pregnant about 2 weeks ago. I'm now 7 weeks and will be 8 weeks on the 3rd. I'm scared to death! It will be 4 years in October that I had my daughter Kaydence who was sillborn at 26 weeks and I was told it woul dbe a miracle if I ever had another baby. I have had 2 miscarriages since my daughter and now with finding out so soon with this baby I am scared of having another miscarriage. I don't really remember how I felt when I was pregnant with my daughter so every little cramp of belly pain has me rushing to the washroom to make sure I'm not bleeding. It gets tiring at times but I can't help it.

Has anyone else had cramping or pains that extend into their thighs?
by MadiGurl07 12th Aug 2010, 10:51am
I am 7 weeks pregnant with first child due on the 25 March 2011. I do not have my first scan till 20 September so I am a little worried about waiting so long I will be 14 weeks. I want to make sure I can have the test for downs I know it's silly but I just want peace of mind so I am hoping my appointment is not to far as you should have it between 10 weeks and 14 weeks I also hope the test is done at this appointment and I do not have to be sent to another hospital. I am worried about every pain I am feeling lots of sharp pains and very strong cramps they don't last long but everytime I have one I rush to the loo to check. I can't wait to be over 12 weeks so I can relax a little. I know it's stupid and my doctor said the pains and cramps are normal but I just worry about everything.
by purple27 12th Aug 2010, 10:36am
Cristina29 i too have the most awful sickness and nausea and am exactly 6 week and 5 days! Im not eating as i cant find anything i can bear the thought of so if anyone has any tips please do share!
by kellyscholes 12th Aug 2010, 10:36am
I am 7 weeks 5 days pregnant and I also feel very bloated and have gained over 20 pounds already. This is my 3rd baby. This baby wasn't planned, but I am somewhat excited. My husband wasn't wanting another baby, but I am looking forward to my ultrasound on 06/24/10. I pray that everything is okay. Good luck to all you moms out there.
by mandy28 12th Aug 2010, 9:19am
hi all,im 7 weeks pregnant with my 7th baby and just as excited as i was with the other 6.up to now have avoided the dreaded morning sickness but have the sorest boobs and want to eat more than ever.i have noticed that sleep has become my god and worshipping the almighty pillow has become a daily must.
by donna33 12th Aug 2010, 9:07am
Hello, I'm 7 weeks and one day: Have been trying for over three years, we decided to ask for help from Dr, and of course immediatley it turned out I was pregnant naturally! Typical... Had really bad period pains and cramps from week 3 - have visited Dr several times and she has assured me it's fine - they finally stopped about 5 days ago. Now bloated, headachey, bad tempered - going off all my normal foods, but no morning sickness at all, thank god - boobs starting to get sore and big - this is the first week that I have really started to believe I am pregnant! Still not telling anyone till the scan at 12 weeks though, just in case.
by kellyandbabyb 21st May 2010, 4:09pm
Hi. Late in starting a family 40years old. Never wanted children, but now I am pregnant, I was very negative about it. After 2 weeks of recieving the news, I am getting excited. I spotted in week 5 and I feel heavy inside. I am very uncomfortable inside. I don't have any friends that couldl reassure me its ok. I don't know what i am suppose to feel. I have read many website and books and nothing to explain how bloated and gasy I feel. I have not had any morning sicknes. My beast feel heavy.
by sesilee 21st May 2010, 3:56pm
Hi everyone. I am 6 weeks and 5 days and have the most horrendous ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT sickness! THe only thing i am able to eat is marmite on toast, the sheer thought or smell of anything else (especially cooked food) sends me running for the hills. Has anyone else had it this bad and if so any advice? I can't go near ginger by the way that's also on my 10 least wanted list!
by cristina29 14th May 2010, 5:33pm
Hi all,
I'm also about 7 weeks.. i'm guessing if I have done all my sums correctly :)
I had a miscarriage in May last year and it's taken til now to fall pregnant. My hubby and I are so super excited as this is our first!
I also have alot of discharge and was worried that it was maybe too much, but I still feel very pregnant :)
My breasts aren't as sore as they were in the beginning, but that too comes and goes.
My appetitie for junk food and dairy has increased! The nausea comes and goes in waves but i'm grateful for that as then I know there are strong hormones helping this baby to form. I'm still very nervous of miscarriage but staying positive and praying hard!
Leaving the first scan for the 23rd of April... we want to be surprised at how far we actually are :)
All the best to those that are preggies and enjoy every moment!!
by Melissa27 14th May 2010, 5:31pm
Hi, I am pregnant with my first baby and am about 7 weeks pregnant. I am feeling great but did have a bit of bleeding on Friday so got a scan. We saw two little white lines an a flicker (apparantly the heart beat) I am starting to believe that we are having a baby but still very scared. I am 31 and did not think I would have a family. My close family that I have told seem to be in more shock than we are.
by kerco 14th May 2010, 4:59pm
Hi all, I keep getting sharp tummy pains like a food poisoning this makes me have a running stomach in the mornings, my back also hurts a lot and feels soo weak.

by stephy1990 14th May 2010, 4:15pm
hi all. Im 25, mummy to a 5 year old son already and just found out Im about 7 weeks pregnant at present. Absolutely landed as we miscarried twins in August last year and this one took us by surprise just after Christmas. I'm 7 weeks at present although was bleeding at 6 weeks last time so am taking it one day at a time with this pregnancy and trying not to get too excited as Im paranoid of everything and scared stiff but still loving holding my tummy and talking to my baby bean. Although absolutely shattered - think all ive done is sleep the last two weeks. Thankfully sickness seems to have gone - only had it about a week!

Roobaby - I can sympathise with the discharge comment! Its making me paranoid to a degree so im in the toilet like 20 times a day. and i feel really out of sync with what's suppose to happen because my first pregnancy seems like forever ago.
by sammykaye25 13th Jan 2010, 11:47am

I am 7 weeks pregnant! I found out last monday, i have been trying for this one for 13 months. This is my second pregnancy, i have a daughter aged 6. And i have to say, being pregnant is so much more scary than first time!! I have been getting mild twinges, to which i know is normal, due to my uterus stretching, but it still doesnt stop me from worrying. I aslo have sore breasts and alot of discharge!!
I was at the docs last thursday, and the doc said he thought i might be abit further on than we think, as he said he can feel my uterus well, then he said it could be twins!! WOW, but i wont find out till 5 weeks down the line!! Hope everyone else is getting on well through there pregnancy!!!
by roobaby 9th Nov 2009, 10:17am
Hello, I am please to say that I am 7 week pregnant, this is all new to me so a little scared. sometimes wish I did not know so soon, seem such a long wait for the scan. I have a little concern that I am getting some cramping but the doc did not seem to be alarmed. Because I was concentrating on getting pregnant, readying the books and surfing the web for useful tips. now that I am pregnant I haven't a clue what to expect. this site is helpful though.
by cmoore 6th Nov 2009, 9:28am
Hi everyone am 33 and 7 weeks pregnant this is my first baby I too have been getting cramp like pains down one side and was sent for a scan last week baby was fine it's just my body changing so it is good to know others are getting this too and that although no 2 pregnancys are supposedly the same its nice to see this as a norm.

by beyondwonderland 2nd Sep 2009, 10:10am
Hi, am 7 weeks pregnant with 3rd baby. A bit more nervous this time as have had 2 healthy babies so thinking it would be very lucky to get a third with no problems. My IBS has gone crazy in the mornings particularly giving me so much pain. Haven't been sick yet but don't think it''ll be too long going on the way I'm feeling. Still, all these things mean that hopefully things are progressing well down there! Helen xx
by pilbury 26th Aug 2009, 10:59am
Hi all I am just 7 weeks with my first. Im quite scared. I am feeling sick all day and the only time I dont is when I eat, which obviously I cant do all day, which is driving me mad and I have 2 dogs and the smell of them in my house seems sooooo much worse. My first midwife appointment is on monday, but you hear so many scary stories of being this early stage, Im panicking a bit. Im also very tired and my partner does not realise how tired I am. They cant see anything yet can they so to them Its nothing. Never been on anything like this before just thought it would be helpful going through it with others at the same stage as me. Love to hear from any of you x
by anf 24th Aug 2009, 9:06am
Hiya, i am half way through week 7 and don't seem to be having many symptoms ie morning sickness etc. Missed period - yes, positive pregnancy test - yes, Sore boobs -yes. I had period pain like cramps in week 4-5 but no now and other than that i wouldn't know i was pregnant. Keep having to remind myself that i am. I have my first midwife's appt next week so hopefully that will be helpful.
by han31 13th Aug 2009, 11:04am

Hi I'm nearly 7 weeks pregnant and have no sickness, just ever so slightly boobs, peeing more and extremely tired all the time, getting 10 hours sleep a night! I'm a bit worried about having no sickness.....anyone else had this and know that everything's ok? I can't be seen by the doctor for another 2 weeks!! x
by bbxx 25th Jun 2009, 9:23am
Hi I'm in my 7th week, been to Dr's and awaiting appointment from Hospital to make it all official. I have bad hayfever and now can't take anything for it - great! have been prescribed eye drops which are safe from Dr and found a useful little totally drug free pot called HayMax - put at base of nose and it stops the pollen getting to you, also got an ioniser which takes pollen out of the air which has been a god send at home. I have had no real symptoms as to baby and as others have said - feel like it should be more. Sore boobs, missed period and 2 positive tests. Its fantastic - tried for 2 years with previous partner before it drove us apart, started trying the week after I've worked out was actually pregnant lol - happened so quick and its still a shock.

Good luck to everyone.

I'm just 7 weeks pregnant, and have started suffering with really bad Morning sickness... or should I say ALL DAY SICKNESS!!!!!

I am constantly holding back the tears, and my poor husband doesn't know whether to hug me, or leave me be... he is out at the supermarket right now hunting down the latest food I have read, may alleviate the symptoms.....

I know I should wish this time away, but I really want it to be week 12 already!
by suebdo2490 18th Jun 2009, 9:45am
I'm 7 weeks pregnant and I don't feel nausea at all, i don't have cravings, i only had pms cramps during my 5th week, had very sore breast and very tired all the time, but now it's just headaches! it's been 4 days now, i hope they don't last much longer!
by essencyee 17th Jun 2009, 10:33am
Hi, I am 7 weeks pregnant and have really bad morning sickness - or should i say all day sickness. I am also quite emotional. Poor hubby keeps getting the bad side! We have been trying for 4 years now and this is our 1st baby so am really happy.
I am suffering from hayfever really bad and have been using airwaves chewing gum during day and olbus oil on pillow at night - made a great difference. Also just bought 1 of those Llyods allergy zappers.
by DebbieW123 15th Jun 2009, 9:32am
Hi Everyone,
I am 7 weeks pregnant, my first pregnancy got a BFP 10 days ago. My only really strong symptom is my breasts being so sore!! I have waves of nausea and mild cramps, and of course the tiredness but its not too bad. I keep thinking my symptoms should be much stronger, but i have heard not everyone gets morning sickness, and some women do have mild symptoms? Anyone else in their 7th week have very mild symptoms?
by ashleighmary 15th Jun 2009, 9:32am
hi there, i'm 7 weeks preg found out a couple of weeks ago but still haven't been to the doctor. this is my 4th child my last one was only born in january and was going to be my last but still happy about it although a bit nervous about how i'm gonna cope my other 2 kids are 4 1/2 and 3 so i'm certainly gonna have my hands full. it's good to have a site like this where you can talk to people going through the same sort of things as you and if there not they are good with support and advice
by amzy1984 2nd Jun 2009, 11:06am
Its really useful reading people's comments. This is my first and after trying for 15months I am in total disbelief- backed by the fact I seem to have pretty much no symptoms- apart from three positive pregnancy tests and a missed period. I guess not everyone has symptoms? How many weeks should I go to the doctor? I'm also full of hay fever at the mo and don't know if there is anything I can safely take to help........any thoughts?! Thanks. It really is amazing- it is a complete miracle what is taking place inside of us- God is an incredible creator!
by Sa81 1st Jun 2009, 9:07am
Hi all. Im 7 weeks and 5 days preggers with my first little sesame seed. My breasts are killing me to the point where they wake me up at nights. I haven't really had any morning sickness although feel pretty flat. I have no energy to do anything and looking inside the fridge makes me feel terrible. I can't stand walking past a butcher or the meat isle of the supermarket. Strange hey! oh, and there's that disgusting taste in my mouth, eww i can't stand it and no matter what i try it just comes back. it was a mettal taste last week and one day all i could taste was 'pickled onions'! Thinking about it now makes me feel sick!! Is this normal in pregnancy? I didn't find anything in other's comments about this.
Best of Luck ladies!!
by Sqweek 26th May 2009, 12:36pm
Hi Everyone!! I'm 7 weeks pregnant, only found out a few days ago so I'm pretty excited!! I jusrt wanted some advice really.....I keep getting mild period pains on and off every now and bleeding though, just wondered if this was normal?? xx

by betts 11th May 2009, 11:36am
7 weeks with 2nd, quite excited, told my family already, don't really believe in superstitions. Hoping that work will be better than last time as i lost my job as i only wanted to work part time and as it was a small company they were horrid and said "it was may choice to get preg, my job was full time take it or leave it" as as they had fewer than 12 full time employees they could get away with it, great huh?
by sammibrown 7th May 2009, 9:13am
Hi I found out 5 days ago that im 7 weeks pregnany with my 3rd child. I had a miscarriage in jan of this year so right now i want to feel excited but im sooooo worried about every niggly pain or discomfort. I phoned my doctors today and they managed to fit me in to see a midwife today and im gonna be going for an early scan, so hopefully that will put my mind at rest. Im dying to tell the fam n friends but i know i have to wait!!... Conrats everyone!!!
by stacey1234 6th May 2009, 9:16am
I'm 7 weeks pregnant with our first child. Am I the only one that feels the whole thing is just a bit sereal?? As soon as I found out at 5 weeks I went to the doctor. I'm now just waiting for the midwife to contact me but although I get the mild period pains and extremely sore boobs, I've luckily not suffered with the sickness. At the moment I feel I'm living one big dream and won't feel like its happening until I see the scan. I'm 35 years old and am worried that being classed as 'older parent' may cause problems. Am I just worried for no reason???

By the way, Congratulations to everyone on their pregnancies. Its really nice to be able to read other people's views and feelings, especially as its my first time. Thanks
by smartie6189 6th May 2009, 9:16am

Hi...I'm 7 weeks and 6 days pregnant, completely over the moon and I feel so lucky! Up until 2 days ago, I felt normal but now I am feeling really sleepy most of the time and have had my first sickness today (not very glamorous!).oooh it was gross and felt really yuck but I am happy to put up with it ten fold cos it of course means that I have a litle cupcake baking away in there. Congratulations to you all for your pregnancies :-)

Hi I'm 7 weeks pregnant with my second baby. Just wanted to let minkymonk know that i had pink discharge all the way through my pregnancy and i know a few other women that have had the same thing and its seems totally normal, i worried but wouldnt worry if it happened this time, as had no complications at all throughout my first pregnancy, just wanted to put your mind at rest x
by teds 16th Mar 2009, 9:18am
Hey im 7weeks an 4days and this is my first baby with my bf of 3years. Im a active and fun person but these past 2weeks i have been a bear with a sore head, sore boobed, tried, sickley and i can't concentrate - i really dont feel myself.
Im also go pinky discharge which is makin me stress as i m scared of having a m/c. Neways tryin to get through the week, work is so unbearable. Roll on 12weeks when its time for the glowing skin, radiant eyes and bump. All the best everyone xxx
by minkymonk 13th Mar 2009, 9:17am
Hi im 7wks pregnant&this is my second pregnancy.I hav a child who's 2yrs old.
I'm a little worried because my first born was premature and was delivered by emergency cesarian at 27wks.I just really hope this baby is born healthy&comes home rather then baby&i going through another 8months in the neonatal unit befor my child can come home!

A word of advice for all you lucky mummies2be please take it easy&dont over stress during your pregnancies because you need2be in a good,healthy state&inturn so does bubba!!!!!

I wish you all the best of luck!!!!
by mumma100 5th Mar 2009, 9:15am
Hi all, I am 7 weeks and 2 days and this is my first pregnancy so I feel a little bit like Alice in Wonderland. I hope everything will be ok, I just pray that my baby is going to do ok and will be healthy. I had my first midwife app last week and she was very nice, took some blood tests and a wee sample + filled a LOT of forms. I've been feeling exhausted for the past two weeks and my breasts are very sore and swollen but I haven't had any morning sickness so far... fingers crossed that I won't get any. Congratulations to all of you and wishing you all the best and very healthy happy babies! x
by Suzi21 2nd Mar 2009, 9:18am
Hi, glad other people are feeling hungry after my pregnancy book said my appetite may well be suppressed at the moment - no way! Haven't felt at all sick yet. After trying to get pregnant for 18 months this is my first one and with no real symptoms apart from feeling tired, it's difficult to believe it's actually happening. Guess I should feel lucky really.
by misschord 2nd Mar 2009, 9:18am
Hi all, I'm currently 7 weeks pregnant and with my 3rd. I have 4 yr old twin boys who'll be 5 when the baby's born. Was really worried i'd have twins again but scan confirmed just the 1 after a spot of bleeding. Have been assured all's fine just worried as I had no problems pains or bleeding with the twins. Feeling constantly sick and v dizzy, which I can't remember either 1st time around, guess every pregnancy's different hey! Good luck to u all, hope all's well.

by debzz 23rd Feb 2009, 12:56pm
Hey All, I'm quickly approaching the end of week 7. I'm 27 and this is my first pregnancy. During week 6 and at the beginning of week 7 I was extremely sick and didn't feel like doing much. I also had all of early signs of pregnancy. Now at the end of week 7, I'm not so sick, but still extremely tired, sleep alot, and I'm so hungry all the time. Is this normal? My breast tenderness is almost gone completely. Is this cause to worry?
by Mommietobe1 23rd Feb 2009, 12:55pm
Hi this is my first pregnancy and I'm 28. My boyfriend and I are overjoyed and I couldn't help but share the happy news with a few family members and friends. Now I am just keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out ok as the doctor gave me a scare by talking about how common m/c are. I've had extreme tiredness and tender breasts and my clothes are a bit tighter but no sickness so far.
by Birdmouse 20th Feb 2009, 9:12am

I am at the end of my 7th week am really tired, have constant back ache, a wierd pain in my tummy a little like period pain and really bad acidity and heartburn, other than that I feel great so I can sympathise with you both!
by Gingaling 17th Feb 2009, 9:41am
Hi, I am 7 weeks with baba no.2. I've had 4 previous miscarriages and 1 ectopic. I have a wonderful 3 year old boy and that pregnancy was morning sickness free! I feel absolutely terrible in this pregnancy, so happy to be pregnant but I just can't wait for this to pass, I feel sick constantly all day and sometimes can't slep at night its that bad which is a problem in its slf because all I want to do is sleep! Quick note to intuition - if you can't keep anything down you should go see your doc as you could become dehydrated. Good luck everyone!

i am 7 weeks pregnant and i feel really good. Alittle quesy during the day but other than that i feel fine. This is my second pregnancy and the first one was just awful i was sick the first day i found out. I had to quit work. My uterus was rejecting the fetus so i ended up on bed rest my whole pregnancy. i finally gave birth to a healthy boy at 27 weeks. My water broke i guess he just wanted to come.
by lindon 20th Jan 2009, 9:30am
I am 6 1/2 weeks pregnant after a m/c in october 08 at 7 weeks. Due Sept6/09, I have very high hopes for this one. I am very very tired every day almost all day! I have frequent trips to the bathroom, and very sore breasts!! I hope everyone has a happy and healthy 9 months!!!

Hi there, 27th December my dreams came true when i done a test it confirmed i was pregnant after 6 years of trying this was the best Xmas ever...
Im now roughly 7-8 weeks and im so nervous and worried all the time. Im experiency some bleeding when i go to the toilet not passing through but when i wipe with tissue ive been to docs and they said i had water infection and gave me anti biotics but for that doesnt stop me from worrying i would love to have people to talk to and help me through this tricky time...
by Snoopster 6th Jan 2009, 11:01am
Hi there, I have just found out that we are having another baby and this will be our 3rd, after bleeding on new years eve I went to the docs on friday and he sent me for a scan on sat. All was well with baby and 6 weeks pregnant, I have not told many people this time because of a misscarriage in august. My boobs are really sore and I seem really fat too lol. To all thoes peple with morning sickness try to eat a ginger biscuit before getting up in the morning and a bowl of cereal before going to bed at night and that should ease it. Good Luck to you all xx

Hey evary one!!! :) I am also 6-7 weeks pregnant I still cant belive the reality as it was just one try and I got pregnant. I dont feel much different yet, although by boobs are soo tender and I feel slight morning sickness, but no trowing up just dizzy and an upset stomach. I am very hungry all the time even when I have an upset stomach.
I cant wait for my first visit in two weeks times maybe I will feel more close to reality then :) Also im afraid of having a miscarraige so I didnt tell any one yet not even my parents.
Congratualtions and Good Luck to all xxx
by googie 5th Dec 2008, 9:31am
i am also 7 weeks pregnant with my 1st child.. and im exactly the same! ive also been worried about not having all the signs and symptoms! but i discussed this with my doctor and this is completely normal! apparently not all women experience morning sickness, sore boobs etc... so dont worry about it :)
by keeley123 4th Dec 2008, 8:48am
I am 7 weeks pregnant and my boobs don't hurt as much and i haven't been having any sick feeling such as morning sickness. only thing i have had is i have been VERY tired ... This is my first pregnancy is this normal???

when should i be going for my 1st ultrasound? i'm 11 weeks pregnant now but my dr hasn't mentioned anything about an ultrasound yet - probably cause you won't be able to see anything now. any advice anyone?
by MrsAntunes 13th Nov 2008, 9:32am
well i found out i was pregnat a mounth ago.and about a weak in a half ago iwas bleeding aswell to and i had stoped .but i was cramping at the same doc took a pregnancy test by blood to see if my hormone levels were up.and the first test came back low you're suppose to do the test twice to see if the results double and if they dont's not good.if it doubles you're not miscareging.
by nana3 12th Nov 2008, 9:22am
I am 7 weeks pregnant and very excited. Havent vomitted yet but feel very sick in the mornings and at night. I work full time and after ive had lunch im just so tired, if only i could have a nap! My boobs were agony although they have calmed down a bit and dont hurt as much but still can be painful at times. I had a miscarriage in April so im just wishing the weeks would hurry up so i can make sure everything is all ok!
by Keensy 30th Oct 2008, 9:41am
I found out i was pregnant 3 weeks ago.and me, my partner and little boy are sooo happy. ive told a few people,but i now seem to be a little worried as i started bleeding slightly on friday and it stopped by sunday. i took another test and it was positive,does anyone else know why this may be? x
by XbecX 28th Oct 2008, 9:19am
Has anyone else told friends or family yet? I know its early but some friends are already looking suspicious and starting to guess as Im not drinking when going out and would normally have a drink or two. Im away with close friends for a girls weekend next weekend and think its going to be impossible to keep it a secret. Do you think its too soon to tell?
by copper 24th Oct 2008, 8:58am
hello. I am a little worried. Im seven weeks pregnant and although I have had nausea and vomiting it completely disappeared this morning and my breasts dont feel as tender as they did. I am wondering whether this is normal. The thing that adds to my worries is that I am abroad and not really famliar with the medical care help here. Should I get a scan done? I am very worried as this is my first pregnancy.
by sophiadin 20th Oct 2008, 10:49am
I am 7 weeks pregnant, and so far not too bad. I have two other children ages 4 1/2 and almost 6. I am not having a lot of nausea, but get the "icky" feeling a lot, but if I just take it easy, it goes away after a few mins. I am having a lot of mood swings, my poor husband can't stand to be around me half the time. I do find myself very worried alot though, bc I just recently miscarried in May and was 7 wks along when I lost the baby. I keep thinking that I will lose this one as well. But, with that one, I felt wonderful, never sick, a little breast tenderness, not much and I wasn't ever "grumpy". I have a good feeling about his one, since I do feel so much different, like the moodyness and feeling some stomach irritation.

by gill3 1st Sep 2008, 8:52am
This is my first pregnancy - I'm 7 weeks pregnant and I've never known anything like this! I already had large breasts so didnt think they'd get much bigger - how wrong I was! I've gone up 2 sizes and feel like someones constantly slicing my nipples with razor blades whilst squeezing the rest of the breasts as hard as possible. Morning sickness kicked in on Sunday - I say morning sickness but I'm feeling sick all day! One odd difference is that I'm a chocolate addict.. or was until Sunday. The very thought of it turns my stomach! Bring it on though - I'm looking forward to it all. I also heard that it means you have a strong pregnancy... is this right?
by jillh82 27th Aug 2008, 9:23am
I found out i was pregnant today and am so excited! My symptoms started sooo early! I have been feeling sick non stop and my breasts feel like they are going to drop off! Congratulations everyone!!
by t121ace 27th Aug 2008, 9:22am
This si my second pregnancy. First one went really well. I was hardly sick and ate a ton of pickles. I suggest that if your finding out what your having to have a few neutral clothes on hand. With my first one at the ultrasound they told me I was going to have a girl. I ended up having a boy and was stuck with a ton of pink clothes. This pregnancy is even better than the last. No sickness at all. Can't wait for my first doc appointment.
by scox 20th Aug 2008, 8:54am
This is for the girl who is only 21 and lives with parents. You are grown so parents being upset, they will get over it. If you are not ready to be a mom yet it's ok but there are other alternatives. Like adoption. So many woman want a baby that can't have one. I would look into that if I were you. Abortion should be a last option if any.

This is my first pregnancy and i'm so excited, my fiance and i have bought a few extra tests (of the cheap two-line variety) just to see how bright the line comes out now. I have had some stomacheaches, gas the usual suspects and the mild nausea stopped last week, thankfully i havent thrown up yet. My breasts have gone from C to D, were very tender the first 5 weeks but not anymore. I know i don't look any diff yet but have gained about 10 lbs and all my jeans are tight??? Must be from all the sleeping... im in the army and work long shifts, get home have dinner and go straight to bed!

I am also 7 weeks pregnant with my second child. I remember feeling a bit sick with my first pregnancy which started about 6 weeks and lasted until about 10, but this time I feel sick all day. Someone posted a message on this site about "inner gate acupressure point". I typed this in the search engine and it tells you how to find the pressure point on your inner wrist. I was not sure at first but I tried it. I cannot believe the relief I feel. It was immediate!! When I start to feel sick I do the pressure point and within 1 minute it has gone. I researched a bit more and found that it is being used more and more to combat nausea and it is on other medical websites. If anyone is sick, please try this as I think it is totally excellent, so thanks to whoever posted the blog. By the way if you think that the first weeks drag, wait until you are nearly due, it seems like forever it will happen. Just enjoy every bit because when the baby comes your life will never be the same again. Once you get in a routine when little one is here life is 100% better, they are brill!!

i'm totally stuck i don't no what to do?? i'm 7 weeks pregnant and my parents don't no if i tell them i no they will be soo disapointed as i have just finished college and about to start a new job, but the job i do is physical and i won't be able to do it pregnant. my partener said he does'nt want a child but understands if i could not go through with a termination as i had a misscarraige 2 years ago, i no i could not afford a baby finacially and i would have to live off benefits as i am 21 years old and still live with my parents , does anyone have any advice.

I'm 7 weeks pregnant with my first. My symptoms are very up and down, but getting very nauseous a lot of the time but with little actually vomitting. I'm getting dizzy spells and exhausted very easily. Difficulty sleeping due to chronic indigestion. I'm finding crackers are definately the way forward! I now avoid large meals, and don't drink too much water with my meal, as this seems to ease the indigestion. Laying off the tea, as that seems now to upset my tummy. Trying to get a very balanced diet, and I spose I am, but at the moment having to respond to what my body wants and when. It's difficult to plan anything as I don't know how I'll be feeling.

Pleased other people feel like this first bit's dragging. I can't believe it's a whole month till I can start telling people and will start showing etc, it feels like a lifetime away! Am finding it difficult to just carry on as normal, going to work etc when i really want to scream 'I'm pregnant and feel soooo sick, doesn't anyone care?!'.

Can't wait till my 'risk period' is over as can't help worrying.

This is my first time too. Not had any sickness at all (Yet). Do get dizzy spells occasionally during the day. Belly is not showing but clothes are getting snug. An expert friend told me it would be water retention!!! Had to go to the docs earlier this week. Woke up in the middle of the night doubled over in tummy pain and sweating buckets. He poked my belly and said it wouldn't be the baby as the pain was too high. Baby is still under the pubic bone. That confirms that my belly is water retention :O( Boobs apper to be slightly bigger but aren't sore yet. Got my scan date yesterday for 29 Aug. So long to keep quiet. Anyone else going through this with Type 1 Diabetes?

This is my first time being pregnant and I'm 15 so I don't really know what's happening lol. I'm just past 7 weeks and I have a bit of a belly, I know that I won't be showing at this time so what could it be? I feel sick near enough all the time but I'm not actually throwing up. I'm so tired all the time and my boobs are really tender.

Everybody copes diferently and noone can make the hardest decisions in life for you I had my first child when i was just 20, her father had no interest and i had prepared myself to have an abortion, until i saw her tiny heartbeat on the u/s at 7weeks. I did it alone for the first three and a half years of her life. It was tough as noone can prepare you for motherhood regardless of endless advice. But having gone to have another child with my current partner its just as tough with someone. At thr end of the day, you will be its mother if that is waht you decide and precious moments you will share will always make up for the difficult times. Your child will undoubtedly ask questions and at times it will be heartbreaking but if you are honest and their for them then you will get through those hard times and they probably wont be as bad. My eldest daughter now sees her father and it has been very hard at times but i am always there for her to answer her questions and we are happy despite all this. Im sorry im gabbling but i dont know how to shortly answer ! I hope it helps x

I to had a miscarraige at 7 weeks - The worst feeling on earth - it took me and my hubby two years to get that little one and it was taken from us. We found out that the baaby had died on the 1 April 2008 at 11:58 i'll never forget that moment - I just kept thinking it was an April Fool - but it was the truth. We have strated to try agin this month s so fingers crossed it happens much sooner this time round. I'll keep you all posted, fingers crossed xx

by sammiex07 19th May 2008, 8:50am

by drmami1986 25th Mar 2008, 9:04am
I am so sorry for the last message, that is so tragic, I cried when I read about your fiance cant imagine how you must be feeling.
I have had mild nausea but no actual vomiting, I do find myself waking up really early and normally absolutly boiling through the night. I have had extremely sore breasts, have had to buy a couple of support bras already. I have been very up and down in emotions (mainly moody and snappy). Think im starting to get paranoid too! lol
by ruby31 18th Mar 2008, 1:27pm
I have had no sickness at all but my mum said that she did not either so maybe she has passed this on to me.My emotions have been up and down mostly down as my dear dear fiance died a month ago he did not know i was pregnant and I found out 3 days before his funeral.Feel very alone and wanted to join in with some sort of discussin.
by jrok 17th Mar 2008, 8:38am
i'm sitting here reading all the messages in a way kind of feeling ripped off as i only had one day of nausea where i was going to throw up at the beginning i eat real regular anyway but i'm addicted to ginger biscuits as i know that i have them in the cupboard. The doctor i have is crap she hasnt sent me for a scan but have booked obsec. appointment for the 2nd of april and getting excited for that hoping that everything will be ok the vitamin A thing got me worried as i noticed that all my face products that i have been using have it in so have a look girls have loads of questions to ask obsec. when i see him

I'm not coping too well, I'm feeling very depressed. I was going to come off my anti depressents but really not coping well enough. I have lowered the dose but that's the most I can do and to make things worse my husband has just gone off on a business trip and will be bak on friday so I'm even more depressed!! I've not been suffering too badly wiv sickness, I do have very sore boobs and extremely tired and can't stop sleeping, although I don't think I will get to sleep now my husband isn't here this week :( I should be happy, I am happy about being pregnant and having a family but I'm just so low all the time!!

If I don't eat every couple of hours, the nausea kicks in quite nastily but I keep a stash of dried berries in my handbag to munch at work to keep me going! All I want to eat is yoghurt and pineapple all the time, oh and baked beans!!!! Getting really tired by 8-9pm and needing to go straight to bed. Had an early scan this morning after some slight spotting last week and saw little bubba wriggling about and a strong heartbeat! All is well the midwife says and looking good for the future.Have boobs that feel like granite bowling balls which is extremely painful!
by Archie1 5th Dec 2007, 3:28pm
I am feeling very queasy and can not deal with anything with milk in. I am eating Yoghart bananas and other fruit, and ginger biscuits. The morning sickness lasts all day but I live in hope that it will pass in the next few weeks.
by Debsa 14th Nov 2007, 1:15pm
The metallic taste in my mouth increased this week and triggers off the nausea feeling. I have realised that if I eat some bread or crackers as soon as I get the metallic taste, the nausea doesn't come on. However, if I let the taste increase without eating then I feel really sick.
