Pregnancy Skin Health
If you haven't already done a pregnancy test, do one now. You
can buy pregnancy urine tests from the supermarket or chemist
which are just as accurate as the ones used in doctor's surgeries.
Some couples take a DVD or record the
moment when they do the test. This becomes a nice little keepsake,
especially if they want a positive result and they get one.
By the time you are six weeks pregnant, the baby can officially
be measured. Although it makes sense to measure their length from
the top of the head to their feet, this is too inaccurate. Even at
the tender age of 6 weeks, the baby is curled up and bending what
will eventually become their legs. It is standard practice when
measuring a baby through ultrasound, to measure from their crown to
their rump. By week 6 an average size is 5-6 mm. Its head is still
very large in relation to its body but already little folds can be
seen in what is becoming their face and jaw. On the side of their
body, small bud like lumps will eventually become their arms and
legs. There are small cavities forming on either side of the head
which will be their ear canals. Even the baby's facial features are
at the earliest stage of development with their eyes and nose
beginning to form. Although all of this activity is going on, it's
still not obvious to anyone but yourself that you are pregnant.
