Pregnancy Week 7: Physical Development
Your uterus has now doubled in size and you may begin to feel a small bulge in your lower abdomen. To the rest of the world, you are still not showing and your baby is still your little secret!
Make the most of your doctor’s appointments and ask as many questions to help clear your doubts and concerns! During the check up the doctor will check your vitals - weight, blood pressure, urine; check the position of your baby, listen to your baby's heartbeat and measure your abdomen. At this point the doctor will also closely monitor any complications you may have and intervene if necessary.
TIP: Take your partner, mother or mother-in-law with you for these visits, so that someone in the family is in the loop about how your pregnancy is progressing.
