Week 9 starts on day 63 and goes up to day 70.
It is your 10e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 3 centimeter / 1.2 inches
Weight of your baby: 2 gram / 0.1 ozs

This is another busy week in the early life of your baby as the shoulders, elbows, knees and hips will now be created. Although the baby now has small internal organs it will be many weeks before they are fully formed and functioning correctly. The basic skeleton of your baby is now formed as are his eyes and ears. Your baby's toes are now visible as are his fingers although his hand is still smaller than a pea. His genitals will also be ready this week and his bones are beginning to harden. Twenty tiny buds now form in the jaw of your baby; these will continue to develop until they pop through his gums in the form of teeth.

The embryo begins to look more like a little person now as the tail has all but disappeared. Later the eyelids will be formed as there is now only a thin layer of skin protecting them. The nose, the eyes and mouth are now clearer and the face is more refined. The ears are still not visible but they are now busy developing.

Your uterus should now be about the size of an egg as the baby is still only approximately 3cm. If you are already feeling like you are getting thicker than this around your tummy it may be due to the fact that your gut is inflated or that you are now retaining a lot of fluid.

The development of the baby's hand now progresses quickly and by the 48th day the left hand will be formed with the right hand following three days later.

The feet are also developing quicker now and by the 60th day both will be almost complete.

It is normal during pregnancy for your nose to run or to feel blocked and stuffy. This is due to the excess hormones which are now circulating around your body. You may even find your nose bleeds more than usual.

After this week the baby will no longer be called an embryo but will be termed a fetus.

Funny how most of us have no sickness. I don`t either, & I`m super happy! My 1st got me hospitalized at this point. But this one, just a super sized heartburn, & cravings! I`m hoping it`s a boy now. Congratulations, moms!

I`m almost 10 weeks and I suffer from really bad morning sickness all day long.... I don`t like the smell of meat cooking or onions... The only meat I can eat is chicken in small doses. I have to take diclegous for relief of nausea and vomiting.
