Does anyone here have <6 inch wrists ?

I have very small wrists and it concerns me because I have read that your bicep potential is limited by your wrist size. Has anyone here managed to build decent biceps with wrists under 6 inches ?

In the last month I have added 30lbs to my bench and about 30 to 50lbs to my other core lifts. Is this a reasonable amount of size and strength to add on in a 6 month span? I heard somewhere...
