I am now 9 weeks pregnant and my clothes are starting to get a litttttle tight. At the end of this week I will be 1/4 of the way through which kind of makes me feel like 31 weeks might not be sooooo far away. Baby is due approximately August 6, 2012 but I am sure I will have him/her in July because I will have to schedule a c-section. I had a c-section with each of my previous 3 pregnancies. This baby will make 6 children for us. We have my two stepsons, Ethan 16 and David 13. Then we have Crescentia, 7, Bowie, 4, and Bijou 1. I will still be 40 years old when I have him/her.
I am so tired and have had a cold and have felt kind of miserable because I can’t take any cold medication. It is recommended that medicines that could give any relief for a cold are not allowed until the 2nd trimester!!! *AGHH* That means that I have to wait until week 13 to be able to take cold medicine. I have been cutting up ginger root and boiling it and then adding it to a ginger green tea. The ginger really helps with colds and an upset stomach. Go here to see one of my ginger green tea recipes.
At 9 weeks, baby is about the size of a grape.
Baby is approximately:
Size: .9 inches
Weight: .07 ounces
