9 Weeks

How far along?  9 weeks

How big is baby? A green olive

Total weight gain/loss? Still at starting weight 

Gym Activity?   Not so great this week and I was out of town a few days so it was hard to get there. 

Maternity Clothes? Target had 40% off maternity clothes, so I grabbed a few things like an undershirt, a workout top and a pair of stretch pants

Stretch Marks? none yet

Sleep? I stayed up until 2 am both Friday and Saturday on our girls' trip and was exhausted.  The trip was a blast, so it was worth every exhausting second! 

Best moment this week?  Going in for our third ultrasound and seeing how much the baby had changed again.  We were able to clearly see it's head, arms and legs.  The baby was wiggling all over and it's heart was beating away at 151 beats per minute.  It is such a beautiful sight.  I told Chris I feel like I can finally stop worrying so much; I think we really are going to have a baby!  

Movement?  Nothing I can feel yet, but he/she was moving all over

Food Cravings/Aversions? I'm still having a tough time eating dinner at night, especially if I let myself get too hungry.  I still find myself eating a lot of carbs, and drinking gingerale. 

Gender?   I keep calling the baby a boy and Logan says it's a boy.  We'll see!

Labor signs? Too early

Belly Button? Too early for this, too.

What I miss?   I would have loved to have had a glass of wine with my girlfriends while we were on our girls' trip, but I didn't miss it that much.  I still had a great time and this pregnant girl was able to hang until 2 am both nights. 
What I'm looking forward to?  I can't wait to actually hear the heartbeat in two weeks.  We've seen it three times, but I think actually hearing it will be amazing. 

Milestones/Development: This is a milestone. She's no longer an embryo -- now she's a fetus! She's developing more distinct facial features.  She might now have a strong enough heartbeat to be picked up by a fetal doppler.
