Week 6 First Trimester


It may be called morning sickness, but better be prepared to run to the bathroom at any time of day. With your hormone levels rising, feelings of nausea will hit you from time to time.

Another inconvenience, your breasts will begin to feel heavier and heavier. Plus, your areola will start to get darker.

Your Baby

Your little one is busy growing. From last week’s 2.5 mm, he’ll be about 4 to 6 mm from Crown to Rump (CR) by the end of this one.

His heart is functioning properly, circulating blood with ease. His liver, lungs, pancreas, and stomach are starting to develop as well as his larynx, inner ear, and limbs. The miracle of life is blossoming inside you, and a transvaginal ultrasound will be able to pick up 86 percent of the fetal poles with heart motion, and 100 percent of the yolk sacs.

In other areas, the lining of your placenta begins to form.
