Week 6 starts on day 42 and goes up to day 49.
It is your 7e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 5 millimeter / 0,2 inches
Weight of your baby: 0 gram / 0 ozs

Week 6 is a very busy week for your baby as it grows to approximately 5mm from head to tail. As well as growing the head, neck, eyes and ears of your baby will be formed this week. At first the eyes are far apart, almost on the sides of the head.

The baby's heart will be beating a little stronger now and he has limited circulation. This doesn't mean however that the blood pumps throughout the body, it is still too early for that. However the basis of the circulatory system is formed now and this will continue to grow and develop over the coming weeks. Although the heart is now beating it will be many more weeks before your baby would be able to survive on his own outside your body.

Did you know that your baby makes his own blood and can therefore have a different blood type from you?

The short stems which grew last week will now become more pronounced and it is here that the arms and legs of your baby will grow from. The development of the internal organs such as the kidney, liver and gastrointestinal tract is already under way and the brain of your baby continues to develop steadily. The jaws of his mouth are now formed and tiny buttons will indicate where his teeth will be formed.

Is anyone experiencing morning sickness? Magnesium oil rubbed on the bottom of your feet will take it away instantly!!! I am 8 weeks a long now and I am so grateful to know about this all natural cure. I haven`t had morning sickness this severe with my first three pregnancies. This has been a life saver!!!

Hi everyone, I was impatient and went in for an ultra sound when I thought I was 6 weeks. However, the ultrasound showed that I was only five weeks as there was only a gestational sac and yolk sac, and no fetal pole :( and she also saw another cystic space which she said could be a bleed or sac...will find out in next u/s which will be I think on the 4rth of September. This wait is driving me crazy!

Prayers for a healthy sticky baby and pregnancy for you. I`m 5 weeks and 2 days pregnant with my Rainbow baby also so I completely understand. Fingers crossed for both of us and our Rainbows!

Hi, I am new to the group!

I had a missed miscarriage on November 6, 2016.

I am currently pregnant with my `Rainbow Baby`!

i had today what was suppose to be my 7 weeks Ultrasound but I was told 6 weeks and measuring 4.6.

i was told that because of my miscarriage I probably Ovulated late . I used a Digital Fertility Kit and It seemed to work!!!!

I only saw a baby sack I am to go back in 2 weeks!!!

Thank you Mamas

I 100% agree with you but some people like to have that belief and if it makes them happy and they dont get nasty or try and force it down other peoples throats, then its just a matter of all getting through this together
