When you will be at your 7th week of pregnancy, you have already experienced some of the most common symptoms of early pregnancy like morning sickness, nausea etc. Around this week you will start feeling more such specific symptoms, which are described here.
If you have already started to feel nauseated then this symptom will carry forward in this week also. To get rid of this nausea, you should never stay at empty stomach. Being at empty stomach will increase your nausea and vomiting.
Also, you will not be able to supply adequate nutrients to your baby, if you do not fill up your stomach. Empty stomach also increases the chance of heartburn and indigestion.
