6 Weeks pregnant

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

Length of your baby: 5 millimeter / 0.2 inches
Weight of your baby: 0 grams / 0 ozs

Your pregnancy at 6 weeks 


What's happening with mum

As well as the symptoms you may already be experiencing, you can expect some gas, bloating, indigestion and heartburn because of the hormone progesterone which is helping your muscles relax. You might also have some tummy cramps and light spotting of blood. While this can be completely normal in most pregnancies if it becomes frequent or worrysome contact your doctor or midwife immediately as in some cases this can be early sign of ectopic pregnancy or  miscarriage.

You might also experience mood swings which are common during pregnancy. Big changes are happening in your body and mixed emotions with regards to your developing pregnancy are normal. Until you feel comfortable talking to friends and family who may not yet know about your pregnancy, it is a good idea to talk to your doctor or your midwife who can perhaps put your mind at rest and answer some of your questions.


What's happening with baby

By th end of this week your baby will be approximately 5mm long. As well as tiny internal organs such as lungs, kidneys and liver finding their place ready for development, the heart is beating at about twice the rate of yours. The circulatory system is also becoming more sopisticated.

Although it wont be until week 12 that the placenta is mature enough to take over hormone production, it is thickening up nicely in preparation.

While your baby's head is still not fully formed and her face is still just fold and bumps, all the features will be in their right place with bumps and indentation marking where ears,eyes and nose will grow.


The Practicalities

Around this time you might be making your first trip to the doctor in which case be prepared to have some tests done. Prenatal tests are designed to check a variety of things. Blood tests will identify your blood type and whether you have enough iron in your blood. A blood test can also reveal your immunity to measles and any diseases such as STD's or gentic factors which may affect your baby. A urine test will check for the presence of glucose, bacteria, protein and your levels of red and white blood cells.

    My 4 baby I haven’t experience any morning sickness only dizziness and been more tired than usual

  • maribote25

    Somehow this week the morning sickness is going into overdrive. Has someone experienced morning sickness get worst around this time?

  • lolo85

    So with my last pregnancy with my son I had morning sickness almost the whole time but this time so far (cross my fingers) I haven't had any signs of it yet. My doctor gave me a tip about taking my prenatal vitamin in the evening after I have dinner. She said that I am less likely to get nausea from the iron in it if I take with food in the evening. Now I wonder if maybe I should have done that last time because with my last pregnancy I always took it in the morning and felt nauseous all day.

    @Lyndsy lou - “Had my first ultraso...„

  • Shaistayesha

    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!

  • Lyndsy-Lou

    Had my first ultrasound today and got to see my Rainbow baby heart beat!!! I`m so truly blessed and happy right now!!! Praying for all you other mommy`s and babies as well as mine.
