I'm in love with you, little baby. You're just 6 weeks old, but my entire heart already belongs completely to you. You have me to love you, I will never leave you, and I will never hurt you. I love you, little baby. I love you. I love you. I love you.
I was feeling my lower tummy today and you can feel how it's getting harder under neath my skin and it's really really really awesome. I'm not getting much morning sickness, mostly the twingy cramping still from my uterus growing or whatever. It's normal until like the 6th month or so. Cool, huh?
By the way-- this is what is going on this week:
This is going to be a busy week for your amazing little embryo. Their brain is still growing remarkably fast; miniature hand plates are starting to develop and the early formations of what will be their fingers are already visible. Also, the lower limbs do not develop quite as fast, so they’re pretty much still flippers. Up until this point, your baby has been very curled up with the head and tail in close proximity, but this week their trunk and neck are beginning to grow and straighten as their tail recedes into its resting position in the back. Even though your little miracle is only 6 weeks old, they’re already capable of demonstrating reflex responses to touch!
