This is the end of the first trimester.

You may have some pregnancy symptoms by now.

Your baby is growing and developing. The 9th week of pregnancy is a time of continued growth and development for your baby.

By now, your baby's brain and nervous system are well developed. Your baby's heart is beating quickly, and you may be able to hear it with a stethoscope.

How big is my baby at 9 pregnancy weeks?

All of their organs are continuing to grow and develop, and they’re starting to produce urine. Your baby’s skeleton is also beginning to harden.

These changes will happen with your baby:

Teeth are budding

Your baby's teeth are starting to grow.

The placenta takes over

In the 9th week of pregnancy, the placenta starts to work. It takes over from the umbilical cord. The placenta brings food, blood supply, and oxygen to the baby. It also takes away waste.

Ultrasounds can show a baby's heart beating from now.

Your baby is about the size of a grape

Your baby is now about the size of a grape. All of their organs are continuing to grow, start weight gain, and develop.

At the end of the embryo period

By now, your baby is fully formed. All of their organs are working and developing.

The placenta is taking over and bringing food and oxygen to the baby. You may be able to hear the baby's heart beating with a stethoscope.

Your Body at Week 9

The body will continue to change and grow as the baby continues to develop. The mother's uterus will continue to grow and she may start to feel the baby move.

You may also start to feel the following things in weeks pregnant:

Feeling so tired!

It's not just your imagination, you are feeling more exhausted.

This is caused by the pregnancy hormone, progesterone, which relaxes smooth muscles throughout your body (including the gastrointestinal tract) and can lead to fatigue.

Don't worry, this is perfectly normal and will hopefully start to ease off as you move into the second trimester. In the meantime, make sure you are getting plenty of rest, use a warm or cold compress, which feels better according to you, and eat a healthy diet to help keep your energy levels up.

Snacking well

You may find yourself snacking more often than usual as your body starts to burn through energy at a faster rate.

Make sure you are choosing nutrient-rich snacks like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and proteins to help keep your energy levels up and maintain a healthy pregnancy weight.

Avoid spicy and greasy foods.
