I’m Lovin’ It: Yoda – Week 6

Today, I’m in my sixth week of pregnancy! Let’s check Yoda’s progress:

According to What to Expect When You’re Expecting:

Your Baby in Week 6 of Pregnancy

You might be coping with full-blown pregnancy symptoms (sorry), but there’s plenty of good news too. Your baby’s jaw, cheeks, chin, eyes, ears, and nose are beginning to form what will eventually become one adorable face. In addition, her kidneys, liver, and lungs are developing, and her heart is now beating 80 times a minute (and getting faster every day). All this and she’s still no bigger than the length of a nail head (about a quarter of an inch) from crown to rump!

Learn more about your baby this week and your baby’s head shape.

Your Body in Week 6 of Pregnancy

Your body may not yet have changed on the outside, but there’s a lot happening on the inside. For one thing, the pregnancy hormone hCG is causing an increase of blood flow to your pelvic area, and your kidneys are becoming more efficient at ridding your body of waste; add to that the fact that your growing uterus is beginning to push down on your bladder and you’ve got a perfect (pee) storm. What else is going on in there? Bloating, queasiness, and cravings (or food aversions).
