6 Weeks Pregnant – 6 Weeks Pregnant Symptoms, Advice and Guide for Fetal Development

6 week pregnant symptoms and signs. This is an exciting time, as the most incredible
things are happening inside your stomach. However you may not feel like celebrating
much due to early pregnancy symptoms and hormonal changes in your body. When you talk about pregnancy development
first question always tickle you’re mid probably that how big is my baby at this moment. Well, your baby is now 4-7mm long and the
size of a pea. At 6 weeks, you’ll probably look just the
same from the outside – but inside, it’s another story. Your baby is growing and changing at very
fast pace and developing new features. This week’s most important milestone, the
neural tube begins to close over what will become your baby’s spinal cord. The brain and nervous system are also developing
quickly. There’s more! This week, the areas that will become the
eyes and ears have started to project as bumps, and other tiny buds are forming that will
eventually grow into arms and legs. Heartbeat of about 105 beats per minute may
be detectable in an ultrasound this week by a vaginal ultrasound scan, but you’re unlikely
to be offered one. Your little one will develop his or her face
this week and will double in size by next week. That’s Fascinating! Weeks 1 to 8 are known as the embryonic period. Your baby is now an embryo. You might be feeling a touch ‘hormonal’ by
week six and Now is the time to really watch your diet – not only to give you nutritious,
energy giving foods, but also to make sure you are avoiding anything that could be harmful
to your baby. Signs and symptoms at 6 weeks pregnant. You are probably feeling the same symptoms
as you did last week, only more so. More nausea, more sensitivity to smells and
lower on energy. Be patient and don’t try to fight Mother
Nature. Here are some common symptoms you can expect
during 6th week of your pregnancy. Frequent urination. Another symptom that you may not be expecting
so early in your pregnancy needs to pee more often, but actually it’s a common early
sign. Shortly after you become pregnant, hormonal
changes cause blood to flow more quickly through your kidneys, filling your bladder more often. Even in the first trimester, your uterus puts
pressure on your bladder, giving it less room to store urine. Luckily this pressure eases as your pregnancy
progresses. Morning Sickness. If you haven’t yet had morning sickness,
this may be the week it arrives. Morning sickness can happen any time of day
or night. It may be triggered by certain movements,
smells, an empty stomach, or nothing at all. Crackers and other simple, starchy foods can
help, so keep a little something on hand for those random bouts of nausea. Gas and bloating. The pregnancy hormone progesterone can cause
these tummy troubles. Drink lots of water and eat fiber-rich foods
to avoid constipation, which contributes to bloating. Heartburn .
During the first trimester, nearly 25% of women experience heartburn. The number increases the further along the
pregnancy progresses. Heartburn usually feels like a burning sensation
in your esophagus. It’s so common during pregnancy for two
reasons: food moves more slowly through your digestive tract and your stomach is compressed
due to an enlarging uterus. The best way to prevent heartburn is to eat
small, frequent meals and avoid foods rich in acid. Tiredness. Pregnancy tiredness is the result of your
body working overtime to produce all the necessary hormones to support your growing baby and
placenta until the placenta takes over hormone production and baby support, which happens
at the end of the trimester. Coupled with the fact that so many things
are changing, including your metabolism and blood pressure, it’s no wonder you feel wiped
out during the first few weeks. Hormonal drives. Hormones begin to increase. They include elevated levels of estrogen and
progesterone, hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) — the hormone that indicates pregnancy,
and HPL (human placental lactogen) — the hormone that promotes baby’s growth. As hormones increase during your 6th week
of pregnancy, your body might react both physically and emotionally. Hormones can also cause extreme mood swings
and irritation. Rest as much as you can this week, and remember
that you won’t feel like this forever. Aim to eat two or more portions of fish a
week, including at least one but no more than two portions of oily fish such as mackerel
or sardines. Include some dairy foods like milk, cheese
and yoghurt, which are a good source of calcium. Remember that there’s lots of support available
to you. Talk to your midwife or doctor about anything
that’s worrying you. Give your feedback related to this topic in
