7 Weeks Pregnant

Baby will double in size this week… and so will something else inside of you! Plus, is your smartphone harmful to baby?

  • Baby at 7 Weeks Pregnant 🚼

    Baby may only be ¼ inch right now, but this week he'll double in size! WOOT! Thankfully, his tail is diminishing and will disappear completely in the next week or two.

    The little buds for his arms and legs are pronounced, and you can even see some definition where baby's sweet little hands and feet will form. 👏🏽

    Facially, baby’s eyes and nostrils are taking shape and his eyelids, mouth, and tongue are all forming. And amazingly, he already has his miniature pancreas, appendix and kidneys.

  • You at 7 Weeks Pregnant 🚺

    Making a baby takes a lot out of you.

    At this point during my first pregnancy, I was working a full-time job, and by the end of the day, it was all I could do to crawl home, shovel down some food, and collapse into bed. 😴

    And that's because your body is working a full-time job now too (overtime, in fact). You are growing not only a baby, but your placenta... you know, the organ that will provide food, oxygen, and sustenance for that child.

    To make room for all of this new precious cargo, your uterus has DOUBLED in size since this pregnancy adventure began.

    So, if you’re feeling knackered before the sun sets, just know that extreme fatigue is normal. For more energy, one simple thing to do is drink enough fluids (at least 2 quarts of filtered water per day). Dehydration can actually be a major cause of fatigue (Who knew?).

    Going to bed before 9 p.m. can also be a lifesaver. Did you know that the sleep we get before midnight is the most important of all? Yes, some sleep specialists believe that every hour of sleep before midnight is equal to two hours of sleep after midnight. Crazy, right?! So do yourself a favor and hit the hay early. If you need help getting some good zzz's, be sure to check out this week's Hot Topic posts.

    Ultrasound and Doppler Exposure 💡

    Are you thinking about getting a baby ultrasound during your pregnancy? Find out what the benefits and risk are to help you make your decision.

    In a few weeks, your doctor or midwife may be able to find your baby's heartbeat with a Doppler. While it’s AMAZING to hear those first beats, do you know that there are some potential risks associated with Doppler and ultrasound use?

    I’m not saying that you can’t take advantage of any of these marvels of technology during your pregnancy. I’m just suggesting that you be informed and empowered about the pros and cons. It breaks my heart when moms get multiple ultrasounds and Dopplers only to learn about the risks afterward.

    Click here for the truth about baby ultrasounds.

    Speaking of technology, be aware that your cell phone, computer, and Wi-Fi signal can be harmful to baby. Wait, what?!?! Yes, according to Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, exposure to these and other sources of high electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) during pregnancy can cause neurological dysfunction within the first 2 years of your child’s life. There may also be a link between high exposure of EMFs and increased risk of infertility and miscarriage.

    Now, don’t panic—you don't have to give up your iPhone entirely. Just use it safely. Click here for tips on how to reduce your EMF exposure.
