Your Body at Week 7
Having tender breasts is another common symptom in pregnancy. If they haven’t already, your breast will start to feel heavier and tender to the touch. Your nipples will also be getting larger and the areola surrounding your nipples will become darker in colour. You may also be breaking out with an odd spot; this is just your increased hormones.
Your Baby At Week 7
There is something so amazing about the growth of your baby. One minute they are this tiny little dot, the next they are finally starting to look like an actual baby. Your baby is still busy developing those arms and legs of theirs they won’t be visible just yet, but soon enough they will be. Your baby’s eyelids are near on completion which means your baby’s eye colour will be determined very soon, however, you won’t be able to tell until the baby is born.
