How are you feeling today? (Feb 10)
Mood: stressed about dr. visit tomorrow
Energy: medium... tired after work
Morning sickness? nope- little nauseous
Cravings: Hmm... BWW; today- sonic's coneys w/must, ketch, onions & cheese
First Doc apt on Feb 11th...good report -- scheduled blood work for the following Monday and Wednesday to track Hcg levels.
How far along: 6 Weeks! (size- sweet pea)
Marternity Clothes: not yet
Sleep: This week it has been pretty good compared to the past few weeks. I wake up in the middle of the night super thirsty so I think I need to drink more H20.
Best Moment of the Week: First Doc visit - though it was pretty noneventful and took FOREVER!! arrived @9:40 for 10:00 apt-- called back at 10:15 and put in room-- talked to nurse assistant for 10-15 minutes, nurse practitioner didnt come in until 11:15, did more history and pelvic exam-- said cervix was hard and closed (which is good) and ordered blood work because I didn't have time to do it that day becasue I had to go back to work and be there by 11:30am. Also, been a little nauseous for the past 3-4 days.
Food cravings: blueberries galore! BWW.
Weekly Wisdom: Don't be too excited about the first apt-- its mostly uneventful. Also, ask K keeps telling me, " Don't stress- its not good for you or baby!"
Your baby in Week 6:
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!
Your body in Week 6:
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).
