Your Pregnancy at Week 6

by Your Baby Club

Hormones, Hormones, Hormones!

Oh, dear! Have you turned into Mammazilla? Growing a tiny human can be tiring and an emotional rollercoaster. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself being a teensy bit moody. In fact, if you have read ahead and are only 4 or 5 weeks pregnancy you may want to get your partner to read this so that they are at the ready with patience and TLC! It is important to remember though that if this mood persists it may be worth a chat with your GP.


No longer a tiny grain of rice, your little one is now a prize… SEAHORSE! Don’t worry this change in shape is the transition to getting 1st prize in the baby show by week 40! If you were able to get a good close look at your little seahorse you would be able to see a dark spot where the eyes are growing and small buds where the arms and legs will start to grow. How amazing that in just a few short weeks we are starting to see all the signs of a new person emerging.


No real changes for mum this week. You may still have tender breasts but all in all, it should be business as usual.

It will also be a few weeks yet until to see a midwife, however, no harm in letting your GP know your news as you are now entitled to free prescriptions and dental care so you will want to get your exemption certificate.
