So today is 9 weeks!
As I previously mentioned, the morning sickness has been debilitating! After missing work because it was so bad, I finally called the OB for some relief. She was a doll and called in a prescription of Zofran and also told me to get some B6 tablets. Hopefully this will work!
OK. Here's the details for 9 weeks:
Our baby is about an inch long - about the size of a grape.
Or a Green Olive (EWWWWW!!!)
New this week:
* The embryonic "tail" is completely gone
* All the baby teeth beneath the gums are fully developed
* Eyes are fully formed, but the eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks.
* The baby's basic physiology is in place and is poised for rapid weight gain
We've noticed that I'm starting to put on weight around the midsection.....I've never had tummy fat before. Interesting. LOL. Here is my tummy at 9 weeks - Sitting at 31.5" _ I actually had a hard time buttoning my pants at work today! LOL. Time for the belly band I guess!
Our next doctor's appointment is next Wednesday, May 13, 2009, where we will be able to see the baby again! YEAH!
Please continue to pray for the health of the baby as well as health for Jonathan and I as we learn all about the joys of pregnancy!
