6 Weeks...

PhotobucketHow far along? 6 weeks
How big is baby? A Sweet Pea
Best moment this week: Believe it or not, getting morning sickness. It's starting to feel more real.
Symptoms: Morning Sickness, slight food aversion at night, definite bloating, very tired
Movement: None yet
Food cravings: Cold foods like fruit, veggies, and cereal
Gender: Unknown
Milestones: Starting to wear some maternity clothes, mainly to stay comfortable.

Development: Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks, and chin. Those little hands and feet -- still webbed like paddles -- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.

Headlines from the day:

In his weekly Internet and radio address, President Obama uses the hopeful jobs numbers to make his case again for a healthcare overhaul.

More than a half-century ago, scientists helped eliminate rickets and goiter by fortifying food with Vitamin D and iodine. Now, scientists are altering the very structure of ingredients in laboratories, hoping to make things like milkshakes and mayonnaise into a new generation of healthier foods that fight cancer and obesity.

Weather today:
Cloudy and windy, 70 degrees
