Fetal development in pregnancy week 6:


embryo in second month
This is going to be a busy week for your amazing little embryo. Their
brain is still growing remarkably fast; miniature hand plates are
starting to develop and the early formations of what will be their
fingers are already visible. Also, the lower limbs do not develop quite
as fast, so theyíre pretty much still flippers. Up until this point,
your baby has been very curled up with the head and tail in close
proximity, but this week their trunk and neck are beginning to grow and
straighten as their tail recedes into its resting position in the back.
Even though your little miracle is only 6 weeks old, theyíre already
capable of demonstrating reflex responses to touch!

And how's mom doing?Itís official (grumble): if youíre going to have morning sickness,
youíll be feeling the unpleasant symptoms starting some time this week.
If you donít, then chances are youíre in the clear-- but donít blame us
if weíre wrong! There are always a handful of women who are officially
morning-sickness To lessen your symptoms, youíre
going to have to buckle down and focus on cleaning up your diet. Donít
eat fatty foods, drink lots of fluids, eat several small meals
throughout the day, take plenty of naps, and donít forget the prenatal
vitamins! late-bloomers with another week or two before the
nausea sets in. There are several factors that can help you determine
whether or not you youíre one of the unlucky ones. If you are having
twins (or more), or had morning sickness with an earlier pregnancy, or
experienced nausea or vomiting with birth control pills, then you might
expect to have morning sickness with this pregnancy. To lessen your
symptoms, youíre going to have to buckle down and focus on cleaning up
your diet. Donít eat fatty foods, drink lots of fluids, eat several
small meals throughout the day, take plenty of naps, and donít forget
the prenatal vitamins! (Have you consulted with your doctor of
nutritionist yet?) For those of you without morning sickness: donít
dwell on it,you're just one of the lucky 20% of pregnant women who
never actually experience morning sickness.
