Week 6

Spread the love

How far along? Looks like we’re at 6 weeks now.  The ER confirmed its between 5 & 6 weeks last Thursday night so that would make 6 & 7 weeks this week.

Total weight gain/loss: It has been up and down and up and down within the same 7 lbs so far…

How big is baby? Sweet Pea. The average embryo is about .25 inches and will double in size again next week. Wow!

  • Baby is growing like crazy
  • Baby is also circulating blood with its increasingly more sophisticated circulatory system.
  • Baby’s about to get cuter too since it’s starting to sprout a nose, eyes, ears, chin, and cheeks.
  • And baby might even be wiggling its (paddle-like) hands and feet.



Maternity Clothes? nope, but a lot of my clothes aren’t fitting right which makes me sad.  I’ve worn a lot of t-shirts.

Stretch Marks? None other than originals

Best moment this week? Well because I went to the ER I got to hear the baby’s heartbeat, sadly hubby didn’t.  They wouldn’t allow him back with me for the ultrasound.

Movement? too early

Food Cravings/Aversions? I’ve been driving hubby nuts telling him I WANTED pancakes.

What I miss: My clothes fitting and not feeling like I look fat.  Right now I’m at the stage I’m not showing, I just look fat. 

What I’m looking forward to: Not feeling like I haven’t slept in ages! Oh wait, I hear that never goes away… I’m also looking forward to wearing my clothes again and not crying because they look horrible.

Nausea/Vomiting? So far I’m lucky I haven’t gotten sick but knock on wood, there are still moments it could happen.  I have felt blech but otherwise…

Labor signs? Oh good heavens no.

Gender? Your guess is as good as mine! I have it in my head that it’s a boy, I have no idea why but that’s what I think…

Belly Button in or out? I have an inny thanks for asking 🙂

Wedding rings on or off? On, although strangely enough, my watch has been leaving marks on my wrist…

Sleep? Other than multiple trips to the bathroom at night… oy… I’ve felt pretty rested but I’m still exhausted during the day.

Weekly Wisdom: If you plan on taking pictures to go along with these posts, remember to take them before you strip off your clothes for the night, otherwise you have to get yourself redressed.

Due Date: Thursday, June 26, 2014 based on internet results…
