week 9

Baby's now the size of a green olive!
Your little embryo has now officially graduated to fetus-hood. Adding to the excitement, a Doppler ultrasound device might be able to pick up the beating heart. With basic physical structures in place and increasingly distinct facial features, baby is kind of starting to look like...well...a baby! The baby's 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 its 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.
I am still suffering from morning sickness, but light snacking at work and throughout the day seems to help it out A LOT. Whenever I am at work and feel it coming on I eat a handful of almonds and then drink a little water to help them down and I feel much better afterward. As far as the sleeping goes I do feel a little tiny bit more energetic. My naps are only bout one and a half hours to two hours a day, which is an improvement from four plus hours. I really feel like my belly is sticking out a whole lot more then it use to. I wouldn't say I have a bump of any kind, it just looks like I am getting a gut cause I am lazy or something.
