About this pregnancy!

How far along: 6 weeks 4 days

The baby is as big as a: blueberry

What’s happening to the baby: the baby’s length is close to a quarter of an inch. The most growth this week is the baby’s head/brain, with new brain cells being generated at 100 cells/minute. His/her arm and leg buds are beginning to sprout, and dividing into segments. This week also, the mouth, tongue, and permanent kidneys are in place.

Gender: Jason and my dad say boy, my brother and I say girl, but it’s too early to tell.

Movement: not yet

Food/drink craving: crawfish, TexMex, V8, popcorn.

Sleep: crazy, crazy dreams every night. I’m actually only getting up now around midnight and again at 5am for the bathroom!

Symptoms: still quite a bit of cramping, especially the past few days. Dr says that’s normal, though. :-/ Tiredness is still a big one, and just feeling really awful in the evenings.

Getting ready: 1 week until our first appointment. Praying that everything has gone well, and our little blueberry has grown strong and healthy.
