Weekly Update - 6 Weeks!

How far along? 6 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: unknown

Maternity Clothes? I have actually been wearing some. Not that I need them, but since its all new (thanks again guys!) It's like shopping in my closet every day lol. I have moved up to a D cup. 

Stretch Marks? I have resumed my regimen of vit-E oil.

Sleep? I'm already exhausted. Like falling asleep on the couch in the middle of day exhausted.

Best Moment This Week: Nothing out of the ordinary.

Movement: Um.. no.

Food Cravings: Nothing new yet. Coffee, I guess. Food is starting to taste weird.

Has the news sunk in yet? At six weeks, your pregnancy is still new to you, so it’s normal to feel a little emotional. Add that to some pretty uncomfortable early pregnancy symptoms (which include hormone fluctuations that can feel like PMS -- on steroids!), and it’s understandable to feel downright miserable. That’s probably why you have a whole nine months to adjust to pregnancy -- and also because baby needs all that time to get all her working parts in order. What’s amazing is that of many of the crucial areas of baby development have already started at 6 weeks including circulating blood and sprouting eyes. Now that you're pregnant, you probably have a million questions on your mind. Be sure to write them down so you have them ready to ask your OB at your first prenatal visit. Until then, we hope we can answer a bunch for you.
your baby's the size of a sweet pea!
The average embryo at week 6 is about .25 inches and will double in size again next week. Wow!
