Weekly Check-In: 9 Weeks


How far along: 
9 weeks
How big is baby: Olive
Your little embryo has now officially graduated to fetus-hood. Adding to the excitement, a Doppler ultrasound device might be able to pick up the beating heart. With basic physical structures in place and increasingly distinct facial features, baby is kind of starting to look like... well... a baby!

Total weight gain:
 Give or take a few....
Maternity clothes?
Yep, full blown maternity clothes already!?!?!
Belly button in or out?
I take it when I get can get it. I'm exhausted 24/7 and it seems like I can never get enough sleep!
Best moment of the week: 
Getting into my 3rd month---only 6 3/4 more to go!
Food cravings: 
I wouldn't necessarily call them cravings. It's more like, this food only sounds good RIGHT NOW and probably won't sound good in 2 hours so I better eat it while I can...
Food aversions: 
EVERYTHING!!! Yesterday I went and picked up a dinner special from the deli at our local grocery store. It looked so yummy. By the time I went from the deli to the check-out the smell was already making me gag. I ended up throwing it away. Ugh....
Mainly morning sickness, sore/enlarged breasts, cramping, gas, FATIGUE!!!
None that I can feel
Hoping for a girl :) But a boy would be great too. I have a feeling its a girl...just like when I had Gabe. But maybe it's just the desire, haha
What I'm looking forward to: 
Listening to it's heartbeat so I know it's okay. I hate this part of pregnancy when I have no clue whats going on in there. 
What I miss: 
Not feeling nauseous all.the.time.
Being Pregnant!
Next appointment: 
October 24th at 11am! We should hear the heartbeat this appt. YAY!!!


  1. Congratulations! I know what you mean about not hearing the heartbeat, waiting for that first time is the worst.
