6 weeks

Tomorrow I will be six weeks pregnant!  I can’t believe I get to say that!!

I’m getting these great updates from babycenter.com that talk about our baby’s development.  I just find them fascinating – that so many intricate things could be happening to a person so small (we’re up from sesame seed to lentil!)  Here is this week’s goodies (I think the email for 6 weeks is telling you what will happen during the 7th week)

  • 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. Right now, your baby is a quarter of an inch long, about the size of a lentil bean.

Kissing little nose and mouth and ears??? **faint**

  1. I am so excited for you. I go for my beta tomorrow and I doubt I will get good news. I have gotten nothing on the HPTs except clearly negative lines. One thing I am confused about though, is how are you six weeks pregnant already? Didn’t you just find out last week after your two week wait?
