6 weeks pregnant

What’s happening this week...

6 weeks pregnant ultrasound

Your baby

At 6 weeks pregnant, your baby will have grown to the size of a pea, with a heart the size of a poppy seed. Your baby is also developing tiny buds that will become arms and legs further along the line. Its heart is rapidly developing from a simple tube to the complex four chambers which pump blood around its body. This means that the heart beat can be identified easier during an ultrasound scan.

You

You need to take special care over what you eat and drink in these early weeks, and 6 weeks pregnant symptoms could leave you feeling sick.

What to think about

It’s time to start looking after yourself and your baby. Learn more about protecting yourself from infections.  If you exercise, It’s safe to exercise your abdominal muscles, which can help your posture and supports your spine.  It's safe to have sex at any stage during pregnancy, unless you have been told by your doctor to avoid it.

Take care when using cleaning products as some may contain toxic chemicals which could harm your baby.

Try to get as much fresh air as possible. Vitamin D is crucial for your baby’s development and even a 15 minute walk in outside in the sun can help. You can also boost your intake with delicious food or supplements.

Hi all, im new to this. found out 1 week ago that im 7 weeks pregnant... wow what a shock... nice one but what a shock lol. im getting pains and am feeling like im going to come on... is this normal...

Just had a 6 week scan

I just had a 6 week scan today. I have to go back in 2 weeks time cause the baby is growing so close to the fallopian tube they don't know whether it is in the tube (ectopic) or in the womb. I am soo worried seeing as this I have miscarried twice before and i'm only 19. :(

6 weeks pregnant

Just found out i was pregnant with my second baby, no obvious symptoms apart from tiredness and sore heavy boobs, thankfully no sickness yet :), although was never sick with my daughter. My last pregnancy was 6 years ago so im a little nervous as lots has changed. Couldnt be happier though as been trying for ages :) x

I am 6 weeks pregnant today

I am 6 weeks pregnant today and very worried about miscarriage as I had 2 last year (September and December) and i didnt find out anything was wrong on both occasions until routine scans :( Really hoping this is 3rd time lucky. I have had no symptoms this time at all except from exhaustion and sore boobs now and again. I had no symptoms until over 7 weeks with DD, I had none with the baby I lost at 8 weeks whereas I was really sick right from the start with the baby I lost at 6 weeks so my head is all over the place! x

i am 6 weeks pregnant and

i am 6 weeks pregnant and quite frankly i feel terrible. i have a constant headache and feel very very sick all day long. I'm also really irritable and exhausted- my energy levels are so low, I don't fancy eating at all really but when i do it does make me feel slightly better for about an hour. A few days ago i had some slight spotting which was brown but has gone away and was very light. This completely freaked me out as this is my first baby and i have no idea what to expect. I plan to see the midwife in a week so will discuss with her i guess. Good luck to everyone :)

Shocked and sooooo happy

I have been trying to conceive for a year now and have polycystic ovaries, went to see the doctor as I has no luck and he sent me and my partner for tests, I got my results last Thursday and was told I can conceive naturally and I don't qualify for if as I have 2 children from a previous relationship, I could have some tablets but until my partner results came I weren't allowed them as they have many undesirable side affects. I was already a week late at this point and wen I asked him was that why I was late he said probably. As u can imagine I was crushed, depressed and down, the next day I took a test that I had spare and was shocked to see a positive result, I immediately rung the doctor thinking it was a false and he told me point blank to take to test as it is, well four more positive test later and a doctors visit I am now 6 weeks pregnant and feel truly blessed and lucky. Looking forward to sharing this pregnancy with u ladies, good luck and all the best xxxx

Tummy Cramps

I'm 6 weeks pregnant and I'm getting period like pains. I have had them on & off since finding out I'm pregnant, but the last few days I've noticed them more often. I've read so many forums saying this is completely normal so I'm not hugely worried, and I have had no bleeding at all which I take as a good sign. Sometimes I'll feel sick along with the pain, but then it passes. We were TTC for 15 months and had just started the ball rolling under the fertility clinic, when I fell pregnant naturally, so as you can imagine I was so excited and over the moon, I have days of feeling anxious about something going wrong as I've wanted this for so long. Is it normal to get the cramps more often in week 6/7 of pregnancy?

Im 6 weeks 2 days pregnant

Im 6 weeks 2 days pregnant with our second baby . Feel like im already showing! Not many symptoms yet. Good luck everybody =)

I'm 6 wk 4days and this is

I'm 6 wk 4days and this is our first baby, my sickness started two days ago, I'm sick first thing then just feel sick throughout the day. I feel constantly hungry so have been having snacks, fruit etc. I have just started feeling really dizzy? Does anyone else? I felt so dizzy last night I had to do by blood pressure - it was 107/72 which I think is ok. Is this normal to feel dizzy does anyone know?

6 weeks

just starting to feel sick :(

Confusion on dates

Im extremely confused on my dates, i havent had a period since 16th Janurary so the docs have said im 8 weeks pregnant but i suffer polycystic ovaries and was very irregular, i did a clearblue digital test and it came back that i was 2-3 weeks...so im really confused could the test be wrong? the midwife is rushing thru my scan so they know exactly how far gone i am? has anyone experienced these problems??

pregnant again!:)

Done a test last week that confirmed i am pregnant again with my third,ive already got two girls 3 and 9 months.But i havent had a period since before i conceived my second child so how will we determine date of conception?anyone else been through this?As you can tell me and my husband were shocked to say the least as we thought i wasnt ovulating lol x

hey i'm six weeks this week it's my second and me and my partner think that it could be twins, as my partner is a twin on my mum side there is quads and and my dads side there is twins and i'm pretty big for 6 weeks and my back is aching so much too xx

so good to see someone else

so good to see someone else on baby six, i am too, nearly at six weeks, and i am soooo tired. this wasn t planned and not sure how i feel about it at the moment, still trying to get my head round it.

Suze- Thats so nice your son

Suze- Thats so nice your son told you, he clearly does have the gift. I was very sick with girls and not much with my son, not that sick this time so I hope its a boy. A few people have made comments saying they could tell I was pregnant before I told them just from the "look" of me. I have lost before as well so still worried it will happen again. If you need to get the doctor to give you some meds for sickness mine lasted up to 39wks on girls, It was hell ! but worth it xxx

six weeks pregnant.

hey yal, im suze found out we were pregnant about two weeks ago. to our suprise! by my eldest telling me and my partner that I had a baby in my belly!. We just looked at each other laughed as i said better get a pregnancy test then. May seem weird for our son to tell us that were pregnant but its not to us as im a meduim and i think our son has the gift too. last year we lost twins which was a horrible thing to go through but gethin my eldest knew before we did on the twins!?. Mad i know. Been feeling soooo sick this time round never felt sick on the boys. Seems like i cant keep anything down.Plus mood swings are unreal. but still feel soooo happy were pregnant again xx

Hi everyone, just found out

Hi everyone, just found out im 6 weeks pregnant with my second child, Im so exhausted dont remeber feeling this with my first just wana sleep all the time not looking forward to work next week not really got the kind of job where I can nap! I too think i am showing even at this stage even though the baby is about the size of a pea i think also finding it strange if I lay on my tummy anyone feel the same?

That's terrible, i am showing

That's terrible, i am showing a little at 6 weeks, and it's my third, obviously it's not baby and water, but it's perfectly normal to show a little. Kinda like when you're bloated when you're due on? What is there to feel guilty about love? It's going to get worse before it get better and he really should understand more. You're both in this situation. My husband knows i'm more whiney when pregnant, and fall asleep all the time. Thankfully i'm not too ill, but have you tried ginger biscuits? Or those sickness bands, for travel sickness? I have heard they are good. Your body is going through alot and you will probably feel different but don't let him make you feel bad, you're growing a baby!!! @Fayeamy As long as the pains aren't too strong, it'll probably be your uterus growing and stretching. I feel like my ovaries are pulling when i stretch if that makes sense? xx

my partner is not

my partner is not understanding towards my morning sickness and he is saying i shouldnt be showing at 6 weeks and i am and i did the last time and he is making me feel giulty what can i do

does any one else get weird

does any one else get weird belly pains

just found out im nearly six

just found out im nearly six weeks pregnant !! already two children one nearly 16 and the last pregnancy 11 years ago .. so for me a lot seems to have changed .Makes me sound old :) just turned 34 ...
