 *Looks like a maternity dress, but it's not;)

How Far Along? 6 weeks and 5 days(Sunday, January 1, 2011)
Size of Baby P?lentil (what is that???); grain of rice!
This week's major developments:
This week's major developments: The nose, mouth, and ears that you'll spend so much time kissing in eight months are beginning to take shape. If you could see into your uterus, you'd find an oversize head and dark spots where your baby's eyes and nostrils are starting to form. His emerging ears are marked by small depressions on the sides of the head, and his arms and legs by protruding buds. His heart is beating about 100 to 160 times a minute — almost twice as fast as yours — and blood is beginning to course through his body. His intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will give rise to his lungs has appeared. His pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of his brain, muscles, and bones. Right now, your baby is a quarter of an inch long, about the size of a lentil.(from www.babycenter.com)
Maternity Clothes? Not wearing them yet, but I made my first purchase! I am wearing the belly band when I wear my jeans. They will still button, but just not comfortable anymore!
Weight Gain?Don't pass out on me.... 5 POUNDS already!!!! You are suppose to gain that in the entire first trimester!! OOPS! Now that the holidays are over, I am getting my butt into gear!!
Stretch Marks? Nope!
Gender? Everyone I tell says. IT'S A BOY! We will see:)
Sleep? Still waking up multiple times during the night. Using the restroom more often and still having CRAZY dreams (I need to start writing them down, they are so creepy)!
Food Cravings?Strawberry Sour Belts;always hungry!
What I Miss? Sleeping through the night....preparing me for mommyhood I guess!! (For the record, I will take ANY of these symptoms, I am by NO MEANS complaining, I am OVER THE MOON grateful for this miracle, just sharing thoughts;)
What I am loving? Now our secret is out of the bag and I can talk about our little nugget! I wanted to scream it to the world, I felt like I held it in FOREVER~!
Movement? Of course not! 
Symptoms? Still no nausea, not even slightly nauseated!; restroom breaks more frequently; CRAZY dreams; and other normal symptoms us girls go through;)
Best Moment of the Week?Hearing/seeing our baby's heartbeat, best feeling in the world!  I think I could watch it ALL day long!:); Spilling the beans to family and friends! and first trip to Motherhood Maternity!
