Brief Answer:
Having it once will not cause any harm.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Taking Liver too frequently during pregnancy is not advisable as it contains a high quantity of Vitamin A. This can accumulate in body if liver is eaten regularly all throughout the pregnancy. You are only 7 weeks pregnant. Consuming it once or twice during pregnancy is not harmful. Do not worry. It will not harm your baby. Avoid taking it again and concentrate on a healthy diet.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Try green leafy vegetables and high protein pulses.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
You should avoid taking meat and poultry during pregnancy as chances of infection are higher with non vegetarian foods. Avoid unpasteurized milk, undercooked food, hot and spicy foods, fruits like papaya, pineapple, icecreams and preserved foods.
You can eat dates and fresh strawberries. Butter and ghee should be taken in moderation only. Nariyal pani is good for your health.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Brief Answer:
Start doing yoga.

Detailed Answer:
It seems that you are too much worried regarding your pregnancy. You need to relax and start with deep breathing relaxation exercises and yoga for reducing the stress.
A minor blow at tummy will not affect the baby at all as the baby is safe and well cushioned with fluid inside the womb.
A fetus cannot come out at 7 weeks while urinating without any pain or bleeding.
The mild cramping in the tummy can be due to intestinal cramps. This is not necessary to be a uterine cause. Please do not worry and just relax.
Regards.
