1 Hour left of Week 9

While this has been by far the hardest week I have had I still want to remember it and what is going on with my body and baby!

Baby is the size of a medium green olive! She's gaining steam. At week nine, your fetus measures around .09 inches and weighs about .07 ounces. She's also developing more distinct facial features. And her heartbeat is getting stronger! Also, baby is now a fetus! Baby was considered an embryo -- but now she's a fetus! During the embryonic period, cells begin to take on different functions. The brain, heart, lungs, internal organs, and arms and legs begin to form. Once baby is a fetus, it's more about growth and development to prep for life on the outside. Happy graduation day baby!
How far along? 9 weeks
Total weight gain: down 3 lbs (Yes - I am eating, not a ton but I am trying.  I gained more than enough on the IVF meds that I think I am still losing that.)
Maternity clothes? I wear PJ pants and a t-shirt all day, every day as long as I don't have to leave the house.  If I leave the house it is a dress for sure
Stretch marks? Nope but using cocco butter to prevent them!
Sleep: Depends still on the day. I am exhausted during the day but even with no nap I can't always sleep at night.
Best moment this week:  Hearing the clot was gone!
Miss anything?  Honestly I would just love to be able to eat  a meal with getting sick/feeling sick.
Movement:  No but we did see the baby move for the first time on the ultrasound this week!  So the baby is moving!
Food cravings:  Carbs and oranges
Anything making you queasy or sick: Pretty queasy all day everyday.  Trying to push
Gender prediction: Still think girl! So we will see. 
Labor Signs: Uh, no.
Symptoms: Fatigue, sore boobs, overactive nose, all day sickness, constipation (Sorry TMI!)
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On!  But as it gets warmer here I doubt they will stay on.  Already ask D if he would buy me a cheap one I can wear once mine doesn't fit anymore, he said maybe:-)
Happy or Moody most of the time: This week I hate to admit it but I have been pretty moody.  I am ready to feel better:-(
Looking forward to:  Hopefully a good week with less excitement and less bleeding!
