6 weeks (a little late)

Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks and chin. Those little hands and feet- still webbed like paddles- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating, and blood is starting to circulate.

* How far along?: 6 weeks 2 days!
* Total weight gain: I don't think so, maybe a pound or two of bloat, lol
* How big is baby?: the size of a sweet pea!
* Sex: don't know yet, I can't wait to find out though!
* Maternity clothes?: umm I don't need them but I did buy a pair of jeans cause they were on sale...p.s. They are comfy!
* Stretch marks?: Nope, & I'm stocked up on Belly Butter
* Sleep?: On this mattress? yeah right...I'm sleeping okay, not great but I'm only waking up once or twice.
* Best moment this week? Holding MC & Tiny's new baby girl on Sunday night. cuddled p on the couch, I could smell that new baby smell & my nausea completely went away. It was the best I have felt all week.
* Movement?: Not that I can feel, but it might be wiggling around in there soon! : )
* Food cravings?: I had my first one today (that's what prompted this) Papa Johns Breadsticks! It was the first thing that has tasted good in a few days.
* Labor signs?: N/A
* Belly button in or out?: In
* What I miss: Not feeling like I'm going to throw up Seriously, the term morning sickness is waaay too specific. It's more like all day sickness.
* What I'm looking forward to: Our first ultrasound on Tuesday!
* Words of Wisdom: Keep saltines by the bed, & drink water.
* Milestone: We've made it 6 weeks, I wasn't entirely optimistic in the beginning, but we are still going strong!

Glad to hear things are going well. Hopefully you'll stop being so nauseous soon. "They say" it gets better!
