Week 9 + Workout

FUN FACT: Baby is the size of a GRAPE

At 9 weeks, baby is now the size of a grape so about 1 inch long. The four little chambers of baby’s heart has now finished forming and it is time to fine tune the valves of the heart. Beneath those mini pink gums the first set of teeth have already formed, can you believe that? Ready for those days of teething after baby is born.The iconic ‘tail’ is now completely gone and baby is looking more and more human by the day, am I the only one who finds the idea of a mini 1 inch human so cute? Two other things which are now fully formed but which will not be able to be seen for a while are baby’s genitals, and also baby’s eyes. Where genitals will only be able to be seen on an ultrasound in about a month and eyes at about the 27 week mark of pregnancy when they are no longer fused shut.

And how are the momma’s feeling? Still not visible to the outside world, you may personally begin to feel some thickening at the waist, this is due to bloating, a growing uterus and even the widening of the hips preparing for that cute little baby. You (or maybe even your loved ones) will be noticing more and more mood swings by this point, blame the hormones, they are definitely responsible for causing all this chaos, however, don’t fear, they should level out at some point at the end of first trimester. Some will still not have made it to the gym yet, this is perfectly normal, I managed to make an entrance twice this week, workouts will be down below. ps. Any funny mood swing stories? Comment or message them to me, I’d love to take a read!
