6 weeks is here and everything is still going swimmingly.
What I learned about being 6 weeks pregnant:
My growing baby this week is now the size of a pea. (I love peas)
This week your baby-to-be's brain begins to take shape. Her head becomes more distinct with tiny spots appearing that mark the places where her eyes will form. Spots for her ears also become visible. Buds that will later become arms and legs begin. And for the first time your baby's heart beats. Within her growing midsection, what will become her lungs, liver, and other organs are forming.
This week marks a milestone—your baby-to-be's heart takes its first beats. Your baby also hit a growth spurt—she tripled in size!
