Pregnancy Week 7

Baby Development

The baby is around a quarter-inch tall, about the size of a blueberry—the Brain cell forms rapidly at about 100 cells every minute. The Umbilical cord develops between the baby and the placenta, which delivers food and oxygen and releases waste in the mother’s bloodstream. The mucus plug also gets created in the cervix, protecting the womb from bacteria. The baby has developed kidneys, mouth, tongue, and webbed hands and toes.

Changes in mother

A lot of estrogen and progesterone would run around in the mother’s body which causes breasts to swell. This swelling can cause the breast to ache, tingle, and be very sensitive. The nipple can stick out with a darker areola and have small bumps (Montgomery’s tubercles). All these changes are your body’s way of making the breast ready for producing milk in 33 more weeks.
