9 Weeks Pregnant

It’s been a huge week for your little one—wait ’til you find out why! Plus, all the deets on the 1st trimester tests you’ll be offered.

  • Baby at 9 Weeks Pregnant 🚼

    Stop the presses... Are those actually… Wait, let me count them. One, two, three, four… Yes! 10 fingers and 10 toes.

    What a pivotal week it’s been! Baby is the size of a grape tomato and growing into a glorious little person. Eyelids almost cover his eyes completely, and he is growing pupils in those peepers of his now too! (Aww...)

    His limbs have lengthened, and baby has begun to shake his groove thing. Dance party in your uterus! But you won’t feel him for another couple months.

    Inside baby, the gallbladder, liver, and spleen are taking shape. His heart has split into four distinct chambers, and the valves are forming. Speaking of heart, you could possibly hear that first thump... thump... thump... via a Doppler! But some natural mamas choose to wait to hear that precious heartbeat closer to week 20 with a fetoscope. You can read more about that in this week's Hot Topics below.

  • You at 9 Weeks Pregnant 🚺

    OK, forget about baby's heartbeat right now, and let's talk about the mama heartburn. WOWZERS!

    Pregnancy heartburn is real for many of us pregnant moms, often in the first trimester and again in the last month or so.

    Thanks to pregnancy hormones, our digestion slows way down to allow for better nutrient absorption (win for baby, hard on mama). In particular, progesterone causes the valve that separates the stomach from the esophagus to not fully close, allowing stomach acid to rise up into the chest and throat, causing the BURN.

    Thankfully, we've got some effective natural remedies for pregnancy heartburn so you don't have to suffer, mama!
