9 Weeks Pregnant!

  1. How far along?: 9 Weeks
  2. How big is baby?: Your baby is now 1 inch long, (the size of a blackberry or green olive) and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear.  Her eyes are fully formed, but her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. She has tiny earlobes, and her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. The placenta is developed enough now to take over most of the critical job of producing hormones. Now that your baby's basic physiology is in place, she's poised for rapid weight gain.
  3. Any appointments or updates this week?: Nope, just patiently waiting for my next OB appointment in 2 weeks!
  4. Body changes?  I've gained some weight already due to being constantly hungry.  I can definitely start to see a little bump!
  5. Maternity clothes?: I haven't been wearing any yet, although I'm thinking of getting the Bella Band.
  6. Best moment last week?: Going to get Indian food with Art and his friends and then getting my 8 week belly pictures taken by him afterwards :)
  7. Food cravings?: None
  8. Symptoms?: Hungry, thirsty and tired!
  9. Exercise?: Walking/jogging on the treadmill once and walking around some stores on Sunday.
  10. What I miss?: Sleeping well, I keep waking up at odd times and tossing and turning lately.
  11. What I'm looking forward to?: Seeing our little one again at our next ultrasound!
  12. Different this time: More symptoms, definitely hungrier!
This is what our baby looks like at 9 weeks, it's amazing because it's actually starting to look like a little human!
