Welcome to week 6 baby!
You are now the size of a snow pea. Your heart is beating — almost twice as fast as mine — and you are starting to sprout your arms and legs, which might wiggle by the week’s end.
This is a busy week for you. You are starting to grow your eyes, ears, nose, cheeks and chin. Your intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will eventually grow to your lungs has appeared. Your pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of your brain, muscles, and bones.
I continue to be very tired, but it has been fun telling people this week that you will be here in June. I did have a blood test to confirm that you really are there, but we won’t get to see you until November 1st. I had your Dad take a picture of me so that we will be able to see you grow from the outside. It will be a while before I will start to show, but it will be nice to be able to watch the changes.
I plan to make scrapbook pages with the pictures each week, so that I will have a pregnancy scrapbook to remember these precious days.
