Week 9

Happy Birthday to my momma!!

How far along? 9 weeks 5 days

Total weight gain/loss: Still hanging in around +/-7lbs

How big is baby? The size of a Green Olive.  Average size is .9 inches, .07 oz.  Baby is no longer an embryo--its now a fetus.  It is developing more distinct facial features.
  • Week 9 is a milestone. Baby is no longer an embryo - now baby is a fetus!
  • Baby's developing more distinct facial features
  • And baby might now have a strong enough heartbeat to be picked up by a fetal doppler.

Maternity Clothes? Well, no, not yet... but I have been wearing hubby's t-shirts because I feel like I look fat.

Stretch Marks? None that I know of other than originals

Best moment this week? Telling more and more people.  I no longer have to hide why I look chunkier.

Movement? too early to feel but we sure saw it moving on the ultrasound!

Food Cravings/Aversions? Haven't really just had any true aversions this week but popped a lot of mints to help with nauseousness.  I was really craving french fries this week.

What I miss: I swear for as much as I talk about alcohol you'd think I drank all the time.  I really don't.  Hardly at all even but this week for some reason I wanted wine.

What I'm looking forward to: Not looking like just a chunky monkey.

Nausea/Vomiting? I've had my feeling nauseous moments but other than that I'm doin all right.

Labor signs? Oh good heavens no.

Gender? Don't know but I can tell you we're finding out.

Belly Button in or out? I have an inny thanks for asking :)

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Sleep? Other than multiple trips to the bathroom at night. My dreams have been majorly vivid lately.  Almost to the point until I know I'm awake I'm not so sure they aren't real.  When I get to sleep I wind up losing feeling in my ring and pinky finger on whatever side I'm sleeping on which is mildly annoying.

Weekly Wisdom: Mints are your friend when you feel nauseous.  My parents, husband and Tbug are PITA's.  (Pains in the @$$) to me sometimes.  They're teasing me and have been since they found out that I'm going to have to get a minivan.  Especially since I very much dislike minivans.

Due Date: Thursday June, 26, 2014... based off of the ultra sound we're looking at July 4th, 2014...

  1. You're getting off so easy. I threw up the first 21 weeks of my pregnancy. Helped with weight gain. Once that stopped, I craved tater tots which didn't help weight... I put on 15 pounds that month! UGH! Don't recommend that, but it was sure nice to keep food down.

  2. Who says you have to get a minivan? Get an SUV!!! Much cooler and looks much nicer lol. Mine has plenty of leg room as well as space for carrying things, i have a full size but mid size would work too.

  3. WAIT WAIT WAIT I didn't even know you were expecting!! OMG CONGRATS!!!!!
