The First Trimester

In this section, we will present information week by week about how your baby is growing, symptoms that you may be experiencing, thoughts to consider and tips for a healthy pregnancy.

Week 7

Welcome to week seven!

Your baby will double in size this week, hands and feet appear like paddles and your baby is about the size of a blueberry.

Your baby’s brain is now separated by two hemispheres and both kidneys are in place! It is incredible how intricately woven into your womb your baby is by now and from the outside, you do not look a bit different. You may already have a strong connection to your baby, and you may already feel like a mom because you are!
