Maternity Monday

Well I found something that helps the morning sickness, Zofran. I got this from my doctor because it got so bad that I had almost not eaten in three days! Ok so here is where I am right now.

How your baby's growing: 9 weeks

Your new resident is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Her essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. Other changes abound: Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks. Her eyes are fully formed, but her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. She has tiny earlobes, and her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. The placenta is developed enough now to take over most of the critical job of producing hormones. Now that your baby's basic physiology is in place, she's poised for rapid weight gain.

I am taking a tour of the Birthing center here in CO later this week and them I should be making my first appointment soon! I'll let you know more next week, this week kinda got away with me.

Thanks for posting! I would love to hear more about the birthing center. I am considering that for my next birth. I would love to have a water birth

That's so fun to follow the baby's growth. That's great that you got something to help with the sickness.

Glad you found something to help your morning sickness. I got lucky and didn't have any when I was pregnant. I'm really hoping it's the same with #2!
