9 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 9 weeks + 1 day.
 (You can check out my 9 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of baby: (According to babycenter.com) 9 weeks: Your baby is about the size of a grape. Your baby now weighs a fraction of an ounce and is almost 1 inch long. Baby's eyes are fully formed but the eyelids will be fused shut until 27 weeks.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: So far I think I've gained about 3 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Not yet. But some of my pants are starting to fit a little tighter.

Gender: We should be able to find out at 18 weeks, which should be sometime in early December. I can't wait. :-)

Movement: Not yet, its still too early, but I can't wait to feel the baby moving and kicking.

Food Cravings: Still Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets, and I still haven't had them yet!! 

What I miss: Nothing really.

Sleep: Sleeping just fine, except I'm waking up once or twice a night to use the bathroom.

Symptoms: I feel nauseous off an on, but mostly in the late evening (right around bedtime). I definitely think it's better than when I was pregnant with Jackson.  I also feel tired often.

Best Moment this week: Getting to see baby #2 for the first time yesterday! It's so neat to see the baby moving around and to see the little heart beating. Such a tiny miracle.

What I am looking forward to: The second trimester, and feeling the baby move and kick. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. Appt. on October 23rd, when we'll get to hear the heartbeat. :-)
