9 Weeks Pregnant

Baby

He or she has distinct fingers and toes, head is the same size or larger than the rest of the body. Fingers make a fist. There are visible elbows and knees. Cranial nerves emerge from the brain. Baby is still conscious. If it is a baby boy, testicles start to develop.

You

Chorionic gonadotrophin (a reproductive hormone) levels are not very high yet in blood, but you start to feel the changes – the skin becomes smoother and softer. You may have a stuffy nose and gums may bleed. Your stomach may be increased slightly, but the others do not see it yet. You may feel pregnant and your temper can change rapidly.

Ideas

  • Find certain time in each day in your agenda, when You only think about Your baby (5 minutes with calm breathing).
  • Pregnancy does not prevent travelling, but long car or plane trips may become tiring. Thus, plan Your trips more carefully than usual.
  • If you haven’t done it already, book your first doctor’s appointment immediately.
