Your Baby's Development: Week 9

Week 9
Your baby will now be about 0.9 inches (23 millimeters) and weighs around 0.07 ounces (2 grams). The elbows should also be fully developed by now, as well as the toe rays. Gonads should have completed their growth into either testes or ovaries.

Baby's head has been growing—it's quite large compared with the rest of the body and it curves onto the chest. Your baby will start to move around now as his or her muscles develop, and the bone formation process will be continuing to harden your baby's bones. You yourself may still be feeling some of the symptoms of early pregnancy, such as nausea, fatigue and dizziness.

Pregnancy Tip

You and your baby need different levels of nutrients throughout your pregnancy, yet most prenatal supplements fail to meet this changing need. Biotegrity's , however, have been specially designed according to the latest Dietary Reference Intakes for pregnancy. This means you get prenatal supplements that target the right nutrients during the right trimester.
