MORE INFORMATION ABOUT 9 WEEKS OF GESTATION

In the 9th week the baby still has a bigger head than the rest of the body, its face is very wide which leaves its eyes separated, kind of still on its side. The eyelids have just formed, their wrists and ankles are more formed, the elbows are also already formed and it is already possible to bend and bring the fingers that are being formed to the mouth. Fetal development is in full swing at this stage.

The baby’s sexual organ is also being more visibly characterized, but it is not yet possible to see it on ultrasound. However, from the 12th week onwards, it is already possible to guess what the sex is by the shape of the fetal tubercle, which is the part where the penis or the vagina is actually forming. Now it is about 2.3 cm long, buttocks skull and is similar in size to a chestnut from Pará.

At 9 weeks of gestation, your weight at the moment is estimated at 2 grams and all parts of your body already exist, such as legs, arms and ears as well as your internal organs that are increasingly well formed. The weight gain will start quickly from this stage and it will start to look more and more like the baby you will be holding in your arms in a few months.

How is Mom Feeling …

In the 9 weeks of pregnancy, the life of the mother during this period is summarized in two words: sleep and nausea . But try to calm down, as normally this phase of nausea and sickness , especially in the morning, ends with the end of the first trimester. If this is your first pregnancy, your belly is hardly pointing. If it is the second, it is already possible to have a certain roundness and a more prominent belly.

At this stage, it is very common for the expectant mother to feel beyond the “expected” bad feelings, headache and a small discomfort in the back, this is the result of the changes in her body and her hormonal level that is being changed day after day.
Her breasts during this period must have doubled in size and her mood is a real roller coaster , at the moment very happy and seconds later she falls into tears for no reason. You should only be concerned if these symptoms are very intense and have been interfering with your interaction with people, then you must communicate to your obstetrician to assess a possible depression in pregnancy, which is very common to happen !!

External factors…

For the world, hardly anyone just looking will know that she is pregnant. What further increases the anxiety of seeing the huge belly soon, it seems that we will feel more pregnant with the evident sign that there is a new love coming into our lives. The belly is the clear sign of the multiplication of our hearts !!!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
