Topic Week 7: Welcome to the hormoanal rollercoaster!!!

Fetal development in pregnancy week 7:



embryo in second month
Your baby is really beginning to develop more physical definition this
week Ė their oversized head isnít just large and oblong anymore, itís
actually a little bit pointy. The tiny receding tail bud is now
starting to be overshadowed by the growth of their legs, which are now
complete with knees and the beginnings of toes. Their eyes and ears are
the most visible features on their head and their miniature bones are
starting to harden throughout their body. You also have some variation
on a boy or a girl at this point, although their genitals wonít be
visible enough to determine which color cigars youíre going to buy
until around the 16th week.

And how's mom doing?

Your hormones are still out of whack because the placenta wonít take
over hormone production for your little one for another couple of
weeks. So until then, expect more of the same. At this point any close
family or friends have undoubtedly noticed youíre a little more moody
and/or irritable than itís always worth the time
and effort to explain to yourself and others the reason for your
current emotional rollercoaster; you donít have to be a monster just
because you feel a little whacked out usual. And there are
probably times where youíre ready to tell the world off (maybe you
already have), but itís always worth the time and effort to explain to
yourself and others the reason for your current emotional
rollercoaster; you donít have to be a monster just because you feel a
little whacked out. Focus on your breathing and energy levels. Take
naps if you feel fatigued but don't forget the stress-reducing benefits
of long walks outside for fresh air and exercise. Sit down if you start
to feel nauseous, and take the time to eat healthy vitamin-rich foods
when youíre hungry. Even though thereís no bi-weekly paycheck or boss,
pregnancy is harder work than you might think and you need lots of
positive physical and emotional energy to provide your baby with the
safest strongest home possible.
