More symptoms of pregnancy may appear in when you are 7 weeks pregnant. Nausea and morning sickness, constipation, vaginal discharge and excess saliva are some.  Rapid acceleration of hormones can cause your face to break out. Wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleaner and drink plenty of water. Vitamin B6 not only helps with nausea, but you may find it also improves the condition of your skin.

Your waist may already be expanding, causing your clothes to feel snug. You may experience constipation and have occasional bouts of indigestion. Some women also feel a bit dizzy or lightheaded at times. Persistent symptoms that concern you should be immediately reported to your doctor.

You will develop a mucus plug around this time, which forms in the opening of the cervical canal and seals off the uterus for protection. Eventually, you will lose this plug as your cervix dilates in preparation for labor. If you haven't already, you should call your doctor for an OB appointment.
