9 Weeks Along :)

So if you are preggo, I totally recommend this website My friend Amanda turned me onto this site when I was preggo with Joey, and I have been hooked ever since. You type in your due date, or even your child's birthday, and it gives you weekly emails about how your child is developing, things other kids their age are doing, and more! Johnny and I are constantly in awe of what our Lord is doing inside of my belly, so I thought I could give you a little insight :) Here is the email I got today from Baby Center...enjoy!

How your baby's growing (9 Weeks):

Your new resident is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Her 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 her 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. Her eyes are fully formed, but her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. She has tiny earlobes, and her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. The placenta is developed enough now to take over most of the critical job of producing hormones. Now that your baby's basic physiology is in place, she's poised for rapid weight gain.
