6 Weeks, Our Little Sweet Pea

Only one more day! I am so nervous, I pray that this appointment will be one I cherish forever. The morning sickness, or shall I say mostly afternoon/night sickness has set in. Oh how long I have wished for morning sickness. I was sick all day yesterday and even threw up last night, and guess what? I LOVE IT! It makes me feel like things are going as planned. For now this is all I have to go off of. That and the ocassional HPTs I still take, not sure why, but I do. I will be a nervous wreck tomorrow and hopefully it is all for nothing. We may or may not see a heartbeat tomorrow. At 6w1d it is hard to say, usually they are spotted at some point during the 6th week. OF COURSE I want to see it, what a great Valentine's Day that would be. We love you LP!

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 (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.

This week's major developments: The nose, mouth, and ears that you'll spend so much time kissing in eight months are beginning to take shape. If you could see into your uterus, you'd find an oversize head and dark spots where your baby's eyes and nostrils are starting to form. His emerging ears are marked by small depressions on the sides of the head, and his arms and legs by protruding buds. His heart is beating about 100 to 160 times a minute — almost twice as fast as yours — and blood is beginning to course through his body. His intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will give rise to his lungs has appeared. His pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of his brain, muscles, and bones. Right now, your baby is a quarter of an inch long, about the size of a lentil bean.http://www.babycenter.com/

I can't wait to read your post tomorrow! I was sick at night as well and I also loved it! I didn't love that it lasted for six months, stopped for one and then came back but at least it gave me comfort. Who would have ever thought puking would make us happy? We heard the heartbeat at six weeks and I will be praying you do too!
