Sorry I hadn’t posted yet this week! Monday was our last official beta blood test and the numbers were great! 4562! Now we get to do an ultrasound finally. J and K are getting to come too! We are planning for next Thursday. I’m still taking the shots every night and the patches and pills. I’m hoping we can be done with them soon! We should be able to see the heartbeat at the ultrasound so that’s exciting! I’m still feeling great! Just extra sleepy. Also here is a first belly picture for 6 weeks! It’s mostly just my normal belly lol 😂
Baby news for 6 weeks.
You might be coping with full-blown pregnancy symptoms (poor girl), but there’s plenty of good news too. The folds of tissue in the prominent bump on top — the head — are developing into your baby’s jaw, cheeks and chin, which will eventually become one adorable face. And are those little indentations on both sides of the head the sweet dimples you always hoped your baby would inherit from your mom’s side of the family? No, they’re ear canals in the making. Small dots on the face will form the eyes and button nose in a few weeks. Also taking shape this week: her kidneys, liver and lungs, along with her little heart, which is now beating about 110 times a minute (and getting faster every day). During embryo and fetal development, practitioners measure babies as small as yours from precious little crown to cute little rump. That’s because as your baby grows, her legs will be bent, making it hard to get an accurate read on the full length of the body. When you’re six weeks pregnant, your baby’s crown-to-rump measurement is anywhere from a fifth to a quarter of an inch and growing — making it the size of a nail head or a sweet pea (your little sweet pea!)
