The middle of the first trimester is often not a pleasant time. Fatigue, morning sickness, frequent trips to the bathroom, breast tenderness and emotional swings are common. Getting adequate rest, eating a nutritious diet, drinking healthy fluids and keeping active are all healthy behaviors that will help the woman cope with the normal discomforts of pregnancy.

During week 7, prenatal care will involve continuing the healthy habits you should've started in the past few weeks. You should be taking a prenatal vitamin that contains sufficient folic acid, calcium, and iron. Also, make sure you're eating a nutritious diet and getting plenty of exercise. Avoid alcohol and tobacco, and limit your caffeine intake to one caffeinated beverage per day. If you have any questions about prenatal care during week 7, talk to your doctor.
