6 Weeks Pregnant

Like peas in a pod

Your baby is now the size of a pea.

And guess what? Your baby's heart has just started beating!

If you are experiencing 'morning sickness', here are some remedies to help ease the nausea; sparkling water, sucking on ice cubes, small and frequent meals, foods and drinks that contain ginger. Although some expectant mums have found these have helped, they are not guaranteed cures. If you find you can keep anything down, please consult your doctor or midwife.

Your body is now working around the clock to create something incredible, so it is not surprising that you may be feeling tired and emotional. Pregnancy hormones can wreak havoc on your mood, however if these dips in mood are becoming more frequent than not you should speak to your midwife or doctor. It is important to care for your mental wellbeing, just as much as your body, during this time.

Rest up and take care of yourself, you are making a brand new human after all. You are amazing!
