7 Weeks Pregnant

7 Weeks Pregnant
During pregnancy week 7, your baby will grow tremendously, up to 13 mm in length! Your baby is much closer to the size of a large blueberry or small grape than a pea.

Your Baby's Growth and Development
At 7 weeks pregnant, facial features become more prominent in your baby. Upon close investigation, you may be able to discern a mouth and even a tongue (you actually can't see the tongue, but it is forming inside your baby!). During pregnancy week 7, your baby's eyes will also start to become more fully formed, and the eyes now have a retina and lens attached. The major muscle systems in your baby's body also continue to develop during pregnancy week 7, and your baby begins to produce his own blood. Your baby's movements will be uncoordinated at best at this point during pregnancy, but rest assured your little one is squirming about his new home.

Teeth are also starting to form on the inside of your baby's mouth, and thin veins start to peer out from beneath your baby's skin. Your baby's intestines and appendix should be formed by now. By 7 weeks pregnant, your baby's liver is working diligently to start producing red blood cells. Your baby should be bouncing right along in his comfy and warm home! Womenshealthcaretopics.com

I know you were so interested in reading all that!! :) If you are not pregnant you probably were bored by that description. But I am passionate about the unborn life. I do not judge people who I know who have had an abortion.. most of the time it was because they were scared, young, and didn't know the Lord. Maybe if more women knew the stages of a baby in the womb, they would reconsider. The baby's heart beat begins so soon after conception.. at about 5 weeks. Maybe one day I can help women who are contemplating abortion, to save the baby's life.

I have been getting some morning sickness lately ;( which has caused me to lose a few pounds... which is good! I will post my weight soon!! :)
