6 Weeks!

My goodness there is a lot going on at the 6 week mark!  Very exciting!

  • During this week, the babies will triple in size to about 1/4 inch.
  • Every minute, about 100,000 nerve cells form. Every MINUTE!!
  • The eyes, nose, mouth and ears are beginning to take shape.
  • The heart is beating about 100-160 times a minute...almost twice as fast as ours do.
  • The intestines are developing and the bud of tissue that will give rise to the lungs has appeared.
  • The pituitary gland is forming as are the brain, muscles and bones.
I am feeling great!  No signs of morning sickness....knock on wood!  I have never experienced morning sickness so I am holding out that this pregnancy won't be any different!  I am still pretty tired, which has been hard for me to get used to but that's's a small price to pay for growing 2 babies!

One more week until our ultrasound!!!  Eeeeekkkkk!  I can't wait!!  :-)
