6 Weeks and Bumpdate
How far along:
How big is baby:
the size of a sweet pea
My pants are snug and I'm most comfortable in dresses. I don't think most pregnant women are as bloated this early, but I'm sure it has to do with ALL of the hormones I've been on for some time.
Nada. We have a long way to go until I can feel "The Sneak" moving around in my tummy.
Fruit smoothies and popsicles
Brandon is convinced that we're going to have a boy
Tender and enlarged breasts, fatigue, intense sense of smell, heartburn, acid reflux, indigestion, weepiness, emotional, mood swings when I'm hungry, intense drooling
What do I miss:
Best moment of the week:
Seeing the sac on the ultrasound
What am I looking forward to:
Our appointment next week and seeing the first glimpses of Baby Sneakers
"This week, the baby's jaws, cheeks, and chin will develop. Small black dots on the face will form the eyes, and a small bump on the front of the head will turn into the nose. Taking shape this week are the baby's kidneys, liver, and lungs. The baby's heart should be beating 80 bpm and getting faster each day."
from What to Expect When You're Expecting
We've made it to 6 weeks. Even though I had spotting and bright red blood, it stopped. We are blessed and thankful for this precious baby!
I thought we would start early with the bump pictures. Right now, I have the "IVF Bump" from all of the hormones!
