At six weeks there is a lot going on with your little one. The limbs and digits are begininng to form and resemble little buds. Your baby is the size of a lentil and his eyes, nose and ears are beginning to form and are well marked. An interesting fact about your baby is that its heart beats 150 times a minute, twice the rate of an adult heart.
Nausea and fatigue will take you over and mood swings will start to make their presence felt. Some expectant mothers even experience sleepness at this point in their pregnancy. The best thing to do is have a bunch of pregnancy books to read and music to listen to, to pass the time and not feel as though the world is ending.
