How far along? 9 weeks and 0 days
Baby’s Size: 1 inch
Baby’s Weight: .07 ounces or 2 grams
Development: Baby will start to develop male or female genitalia this week...I can't wait to find out what we're having! Baby is now officially a fetus and no longer an embryo.
Weight gain/loss: I gained almost 2 pounds this week.
Maternity clothes? Yesterday I didn't even bother trying to button my jeans. I wore my Bella Band all day and it was FABULOUS.
Best moment this week? The queasiness and bloating today actually had me feeling pregnant for the first time.
Symptoms: Fatigue, frequent urination, sore boobs, stuffy nose, and sore throat. I feel like I'm coming down with a cold again for the second time since I've been pregnant. I've also had a few days of mild queasiness in the morning about a half hour after breakfast. It usually goes away if I eat something else (usually toast with peanut butter and a glass of milk). I'm also burping a lot, and my new toothbrush is making me gag easily.
Food cravings/aversions: Nothing sounds too exciting, except for maybe cookies.
What I'm looking forward to: It will be another 3 weeks until I hear the heartbeat, so I went ahead and ordered a home doppler! The Sonoline Fetal Heart Prenatal Doppler is sensitive enough to detect a heartbeat from 8-10 weeks! Several ladies on The Bump have said that they heard the heartbeat clearly at 9 weeks, so I caved and bought it. It should get here around Thanksgiving.
Milestones: We told our parents last weekend. The news on my husband's side of the family is spreading like wildfire, so most people will know by Thanksgiving (when we were originally planning on announcing). It's sort of a relief, since there will be tons of people at Thanksgiving, and I don't really want all that attention on me.
