9 Weeks! The baby is now a fetus!

How far along am I? 9 weeks :) Almost to double digits!
Total weight gain/loss? Still down 2 pounds from original weight
Maternity clothes? I went to Macy's and bought a few shirts and a pair of jeans the other day that were on sale, but I still am not wearing any maternity clothes.
Sleep? I am sleeping pretty well. I usually go to bed about 10:30 and wake up around 7:30. I feel really tired during the day, but still have not been able to nap.
Best moment this week? Framing the new ultrasound picture. I walk by it and talk to our little bean all the time.
Movement? Still too early for me to feel, but I have been reading that the baby is now moving it's arms and legs and even it's whole body!
Food cravings? Dole pineapple tidbits fruit cups. I went to Publix the other day and bought 24 of them. I love them! I am also loving french toast sticks for breakfast. Yummy! My pantry is getting pretty full because I keep buying things that sound good, but after eating it once I don't want it again. **knocking on wood** I still have not gotten sick, just had little short feelings of nausea. Hopefully that will continue :)
What I miss? Coffee...I guess that's it.
What I am looking forward to? Getting my "bump". I feel like I still am not showing at all. I am also looking forward to finding the heartbeat with the home doppler I ordered. I tried last night, but I think it is still too early.
Milestones? The baby has moved from an embryo to a fetus. It is about 1 -1 1/4 inches from head to rump. The head is more erect, and the neck is more developed. The baby now moves its body and limbs.


  1. It is amazing how much they grow from week to week! It took my doppler until about 12 - 13 weeks to pick up the heartbeat. I tried it starting at about 8 and I would find mine every time and get so excited.

  2. You've gotta love the fruit and vegetable references for the size of the baby. I remember us chatting about how big Wyatt was each week using fruits as a guide. I remember when he was just a little blueberry...sniff, sniff. Just kidding- it's so awesome now that he's a watermelon. :) And don't get discouraged with your doppler- it took me until about 15 weeks until I could hear him..and mostly it was just movement. I could always hear his hiccups though- that was fun!
