Week 7 + Workout

FRUIT FACT: Baby is the size of a BLUEBERRY

During week 7 whilst now experiencing full blown pregnancy symptoms such as nausea, morning sickness, fatigue, bloating  – baby has since almost doubled in size since last week and is now the size of a blueberry! Crazy right? 

This week, baby’s hands and feet are forming from the emerging arms and legs attached to that tiny little body of theirs. The liver is already forming red blood cells – a job which it will do until the bone marrow is formed enough to take over the process. Also in that tiny abdomen area you will find an even teeny tinier appendix and pancreas, if that isn’t enough, baby’s umbilical cord now has it’s own distinct blood vessels to carry oxygen and nutrients to the baby and back. Imagine that, at only the size of a blueberry little baby’s body is already carrying out so many tasks, they are truly tiny little miracles. 

This week in contrast to last week I managed to carry out two workouts – below here’s my week 7 workout.
