At pregnancy week 7, the symptoms of pregnancy we talked about in week 6 will still be present. These symptoms are:

  1. Nausea and vomiting  pregnancy week 7 Nausea and vomiting
  2. Frequent urination      pregnancy week 7 Frequent urination
  3. Light-headedness
  4. Breast tenderness      pregnancy week 7 Breast tenderness
  5. Fatigue                      pregnancy week 7 Fatigue
  6. Food cravings

Some of these pregnancy symptoms might even intensify, and take a turn for the worse over the next few weeks. However, some of you might be fortunate enough to escape this experience.

Feeling bloated at pregnancy week 7?

You may find yourself feeling more bloated than usual. This is because gastric emptying slows down in pregnancy.

Tip: To ease the bloatedness, you may smaller meals many times a day instead of big meals a few times a day. You may also wear breathable, loose clothing for comfort.

3 Things to think about at pregnancy week 7

If you have not already had your first visit to the obstetrician, here are some things to think about and prepare for:

  1. The type of care you would like to receive (either at  a private or public hospital )
  2. Getting your partner to take note of the date of your first consultation and ensure you are both present at the meeting
  3. Write down a list of questions you may want to discuss with your doctor about your pregnancy
