9 weeks

 Our little Sour Patch Kid, standing on it's head :)
I was joking that I am turning baby into one because I eat them constantly to relieve the nausea.

How far along: 9w1d
Total weight gain/loss: None
How big is Baby: Baby is the size of a grape. {25.3mm}

Maternity Clothes: I look pretty fat in most of my shirts. I wear the same two pairs of jeans every week. One pair I use a rubber band on the button and the other pair are bigger jeans that should last me several more weeks. My sweet Mom gave me a gift card to Motherhood Maternity for Christmas, so I am ready when I need to buy new clothes.
Sleep: I am sleeping well. I typically fall asleep on the couch every day between 7pm and 8pm.
Movement: Not yet. I can't wait!
Food cravings: I can only eat a select few things: Sour Patch Kids, smoothies, waffles, peanut butter & honey sandwiches, tortilla chips and bean & cheese burritos.
Food aversions: Meat and vegetables
Gender: We want to do an elective gender scan. Most places do them between 15 and 16 weeks {early to mid February}. We are so excited to find out!
Symptoms: Nausea. I am gagging & dry heaving all the time, especially in the evenings. Fatigue. Emotional.
Best moment this week: Telling everyone on Christmas! No more secrets :)
What I am looking forward to: My first OB appointment on Friday!


  1. YAY!!!! 9 weeks is SO exciting! I totally feel ya on the sour patch kids- those help me too! haha! Such a cute little ultrasound! Can't wait for you to announce the gender :)

  2. I am so excited that you are able to finally do this :) So happy for you! :)

  3. Congratulations on 9 weeks! So glad everything is going well, though I'm sorry about the nausea :( My RE said it tends to peak at week 9 and get better from there. She was wrong in my case, but I know it's held true for a lot of people. I hope it's the same for you!! Can't wait to hear about your OB appointment on Friday!
