7 Weeks Pregnant: Update

So today I turned 7 weeks pregnant.

At 7 weeks, Your baby’s hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs – although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny baby fingers and toes you’re daydreaming about holding and tickling. Technically, your baby is still considered an embryo and has something of a small tail, which is an extension of her tailbone. The tail will disappear within a few weeks, but that’s the only thing getting smaller. Your baby has doubled in size since last week and now measures half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry (click here to view source)

My uterus has doubled in size in the past five weeks. Eating feels like a chore, thanks to morning sickness. I need to pee more than usual because of my increasing blood volume.
