WEEK 5, fun factoid thread

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So its week five.  Fun factoids

 

baby now has a heart that can beat.  

 

the obligatory food comparison, baby vs seasame seed.  A very cute sesame seed with nerves and a backbone and the beginningest beginnings of arms and legs.

 

your uterus is at least as big as a tennis ball.  Bigger if this is baby 2 or better

 

To do list: drink water, nap, try not to cave to junk food and soda pop cravings

 

last pregnancy comparison: I was still swearing I was not pregnant at this point, and baby had completely stopped nursing just "mysteriously" along with my vanished period.

WEEK 6 update

 

not a whole lot different from week 5 except baby is developing lungs, nose, and mouth and eyes.  And has a beating heart.  And has depressions where his or her ears are going to go.  Ok so that's alot different.  And they've like quadrupled in weight.

 

And is only getting CUTER.  Looks a bit like a gummy bear.  A very very adorable baby shaped gummy bear, who is about the size of a lentil bean. 

 

My baby bean is craving soda pop.  Lots of it.  I find that my pregnancy cravings are like the toddlerized version of what I already kinda like.  I usually kind of like soda pop, but pregnant me could down a liter a day.  (I am not, but I want to!).
