Peanut - Week 9


Today is: Saturday, January 12th 2013

How far along: 9 weeks.

Baby is the size of: A grape

What's going on with Baby: This week the heart finishes dividing into the four chambers and the valves start to form. The tail has completely gone and the external sex organs are there but can not be identified for a few more weeks yet. Babies eyes are fully formed but won't open until around 26 weeks.


What's going on with Mummy: According to babycenter.com mood swings are common around this stage.. Ummmm.. Yep.. One minute I am as high as a kite and the next minute I am so angry!

Maternity Clothing: I have a shopping date on Monday to get some trousers. Today though I had to go and buy some new bras.

Sleep: I cannot get enough sleep at the moment. No matter how well I sleep at night I am still so tired.

Movement: Nope. A bit too early for that but I am getting so excited about feeling those first flutters :)

Food Cravings/Aversions: I am still struggling to find food that sounds appetizing. When I was pregnant with James I couldn't stand the sight of chocolate and craved meat. This time around, so far I don't really have any cravings although I am choosing foods loading with Carbs without even realising it.

Symptoms: Can we say Nausea?? It wasn't half as bad as this with James.. Maybe I'm having a girl? I ended up at the doctors this week begging her for some anti nausea medication. I got a prescription and it seems to be helping so far. It is definitely talking the edge of my queasiness.

The bloating and heart burn are still coming and going but they seem to be better than they were.

How is this pregnancy different from the first: So far I would say just the nausea being worse.

Best moments this week: Finally getting some medication to help me. Now I can kind of function like a normal person.
I had my first appointment with my midwife. She's nice!
I received the date for my 12 week scan, although the date they sent is the February 15th which means that I will be 13 weeks and 6 days.. Instead of moaning that I am going to have to wait two more weeks than most people, I am going to look on the bright side and say.. "Hey, the baby will be a little bit more developed!"
