6 Weeks

How far along: 6 weeks

Size of baby: Average length is 5mm to 6mm, or 1/6th to 1/4th of an inch.

Picture of Baby: Don't have one yet

6 Weeks: Baby Wolfe's jaw, cheeks, chin, eyes, ears, and nose are beginning to form what will eventually become one adorable face. In addition, his/her kidneys, liver, and lungs are developing, and his/her heart is now beating 80 times a minute (and getting faster every day). (Information taken from What to Expect's website).

Maternity Clothes: Not yet and hopefully not for awhile :-)

Weight Gain: None. However, my evening/night nausea is really getting to me, so I wouldn't be surprised if I lose some weight.

Belly: Nothing yet, but can't wait for it to show!

Best Moment of the Week: When my nephew pulled up my shirt to "see the baby" and when my other nephew kissed my belly or "the baby".

Movement: No, but can't wait until that moment!

Symptoms: I was having some pretty bad cramping, but that has seemed to die down. My boobs hurt but are still the same size. In the last couple of days I have noticed some pretty strong nausea in the late afternoon/evening time. The nausea seems to be worse if I don't eat, but depending on what I eat it sometimes gets worse. Its a no win situation! I do have a prescription for Zofran and have had to take one on Sunday when it was unbearable. I took it when I wasn't even able to watch food commercials on TV, it was that bad!

Gender: No idea!

What I miss: I don't' miss anything to being pregnant. BUT I do miss my Diet Coke :-)

What I am looking forward to: 7 week ultrasound on Thursday April 28th. Can't wait to see the heart beat!

Weekly Wisdom: Eat through the nausea otherwise it just gets worse!

Milestones: Making it to 6 weeks!

Love, Kristen
