My Pregnancy Journey – 6 Weeks Pregnant
What is happening inside your body at 6 weeks:
• Baby is circulating blood with their increasingly more sophisticated circulatory system.
• Baby is now measurable at .25″ and is as big as a sweet pea
• Baby is starting to sprout a nose, eyes, ears, chin and cheeks
• Baby might even be wiggling their (paddle-like) hands and feet!
My pregnancy symptoms week 6:
It is a DAILY struggle to find something to eat. Or find something that doesn’t make me nauseous. Oh and when I do find something to eat, I get half way done with it and then I can no longer eat it anymore, or the next day. I am running out of fast food options! I still can not go into the kitchen without getting nauseous. Don’t know if I mentioned this before but around 5pm (when I get off work) I AM STARVING!!! Which makes me feel nauseous. LOL! If you can’t tell I complain a lot about being nauseous and hungry all the time. Don’t really have any other symptoms this week, havn’t been peeing a lot. I think that is because drinking a lot of water also makes me nauseous. I’m working on this situation so I do not become dehydrated!
What to eat during Week 6:
This book that I am reading “What to eat when you’re pregnant” suggest eating Beets this week. This book is a great source for what is going on in your body at every week as well as letting you know what food is best for the baby during that week. It then gives you a recipe for that food item! I of course can not stand the sight of vegetables right now, so I got one of those juices from the grocery store that have beet juice in them. Then I mixed with the Pom Hula drink.
