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…
