6 weeks

Baby's now the size of a sweet pea!

This week's major developments: The nose, mouth, and ears that you'll spend so much time kissing in eight months are beginning to take shape. If you could see into your uterus, you'd find an oversize head and dark spots where your baby's eyes and nostrils are starting to form. His emerging ears are marked by small depressions on the sides of the head, and his arms and legs by protruding buds. His heart is beating about 100 to 160 times a minute -- almost twice as fast as yours -- and blood is beginning to course through his body. His intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will give rise to his lungs has appeared. His pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of his brain, muscles, and bones.

How big is baby? Sweet Pea

Weight gain/loss? None yet... I need to buy a scale. 

Symptoms: Sore boobs (even though today, they are not as bad), gas, fatigue, and cramping (which I hope is a pregnancy symptom and not a miscarriage symptom.

Stretch marks? Nope

Maternity clothes? Not maternity, but definetely loving the elastic waisted pants that I bought.

Sleep? Lots of it.  Crazy dreams too.

Best moment this week? Flipping the calendar over to July and seeing that my first appt is less than one week away.

Food cravings? Haven't really had any cravings.  More aversions, than anything.

Gender? Will have to wait quite some time for this.
Movement? Way too soon.
Belly button? In

What do I miss? Not being consumed by anxiety all day long.  Oh, and being able to drink a beer with my friends.  The 4th of July festivities will definetely be different this year.  I wouldn't trade if for the world, though.

How do I feel? Very nervous.  Next Wed. can't come fast enough.
