Pregnancy Week 6










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. (from Baby Center )




How Graeber #3 and I Are:


Symptoms: GAS!!! HOLY GAS! Honestly that is all. this pregnancy has been so different from my other 2. I still am having the crazy dreams, and I am super thirsty all the time. Water has been a good friend :)
Cravings:Crab Cakes and Burgers  
Things that make me go YUK! : Still nothing yet. Only time will tell!


Gender: Man, maybe because this pregnancy is so different, that means it is a girl!! HAHA!
Something I am excited about: 13 days! That is my u/s!!! I am also excited about telling everyone (except my mom). We will announce after the appointment. I cant wait to tell Jeremy either, I think he will be so excited.
Doctors and such:June 4th. I will talk to her about a lot of things. I am going to tell her about how I want a water birth and how I might switch to a midwife. I do want to make sure that I am ok though. Then if I am, I will go. She is such a compassionate person that I hope she will see my views and be
