9 Weeks Pregnant

It’s been a big week for your little one. Wait until you find out why! Plus, all the deets on the 1st trimester tests you’ll soon be offered.

  • Baby at 9 Weeks Pregnant 🚼

    Okay, now we’re getting somewhere! Look at that beautiful little human being! Baby’s head is upright, the neck is more defined, and 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 her eyes completely, and her ears are taking shape.

    Her limbs have lengthened, and baby has begun to shake her groove thing. Dance party in your uterus! But you won’t feel any of her fancy footwork for another couple months.

    Inside baby, the gallbladder, liver, and spleen are taking shape. Her heart has split into four distinct chambers, and the valves are forming.

    Genitals are developing now too, but it’ll be a couple weeks before you can truly tell whether we should be calling her a he or she.

  • You at 9 Weeks Pregnant 🚺

    For someone who had never experienced heartburn before, I was so surprised to feel this acidic burning feeling in my chest. What in the world?

    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 slooooooooows way down. In particular, it's progesterone that causes the valve that separates the stomach from the esophagus to not fully close, allowing stomach acid to come up into the chest and throat, causing the BURN.

    Thankfully, there are some effective natural remedies that you can use, so you don't have to suffer, mama! Check them out here.
