In week 7, it is important to keep in mind that your actions can significantly affect your baby's development. By this point, you are probably not feeling well as a result of common pregnancy symptoms. You may be having more frequent headaches, and you probably have some nausea and vomiting due to morning sickness. Continue to focus on healthy habits. Nutrition is especially important at this point since you may be getting fewer nutrients than necessary because of the vomiting and nausea. Eat lots of fruit, vegetables, and lean proteins, and eat small, frequent meals throughout the day if that helps you keep food down. Taking supplements can help you get the proper vitamins you need - especially calcium, iron, and folic acid. Get moderate exercise as much as possible, even if you are not feeling great. Exercise is important for the health of you and your baby. If you have questions about how a particular activity may affect your baby during week 7, talk to your doctor.
