Also, at 6 weeks, the baby's eyes, nose and ears are starting to develop, its heart is beating 100- 160 times per minute and the intestines are developing. Here's hoping the baby gets Hubby's blue eyes although I have a feeling my brown ones are dominant (hah- I'm the dominant one for a change!)
I like having tangible objects to compare the size of the baby to. The other night I read that I should expect to gain 25- 35 pounds by the time this is all over. Our dog Gabby was sitting next to me on the couch so I picked her up to try to get an idea of how much weight this really is.
Let's just say that I can expect to have 2 Gabbies strapped to my stomach by time the baby is ready for the real world.
