Your Baby's Development:
Week 9

Your baby is now between 0.9 to 1.2 inches (22 to 30 millimeters) and weighs around 0.14 ounces (4 grams). Your baby's elbows should also be fully developed by now, as are the toe rays. The gonads should have completed their growth into either testes or ovaries.

Pregnancy Tip
Prenatal Supplements
Taking a prenatal vitamin that has higher levels of vitamin B6, like Biotegrity's Stage 1 prenatal vitamins, can help ease the suffering caused by morning sickness. Biotegrity's prenatal supplements have been specially formulated according to your changing nutritional needs during each trimester of pregnancy.


Your Baby's Head is Growing
The tail which was at the bottom of your baby's spinal cord has shrunk and has almost disappeared by this week. However, your baby's head has been growing - it's now very large compared with the rest of the body and it curves onto the chest.

Early Signs of Pregnancy As the baby's muscles start to develop, she can start to move around a bit. Meanwhile, baby's bones will continue to harden. Since you are now nine weeks pregnant, you may start to feel some early pregnancy signs. These include nausea or morning sickness, fatigue and dizziness.
