Pregnancy week 9

Early stage of pregnancy symptoms at week 9 of being pregnant - You will probably be noticing how many times you go to the toilet during the night as your womb presses on your bladder.

You may notice a thickening of your waistline this week, though you probably wont look any different to other people. You will probably be noticing how many times you go to the toilet during the night as your womb presses on your bladder. Cut down on tea, coffee and other drinks containing caffeine, but not your general fluid intake. Hormonal changes can affect your sense of taste and digestion, and your ligaments have begun to soften to prepare your baby for the growth and expansion that lies ahead. It is normal to develop a tracery of veins at this stage, but you may have noticed them earlier.

Your baby

Your baby is beginning to move her arms and legs. The eyelids are closed tightly over the developing eyes and the face is very human looking. Your baby's liver is producing red blood cells which are pumped around the body by the tiny heart. Your baby's heart has four chambers and beats twice as fast as yours. Muscles are developing so a scan would now show real movement. Your baby is now about the size of a jelly baby.

Hi all,I did the calculations from the calculation calender, I thought I was seven weeks but from the calender, looks like I'm nine. Oh man, I feel so sick. If I'm not eating or drinking something I feel such nausea and mouth fills with saliva. It's aggravating depressing and just so uncomfortable. My partner is such a loving man and I feel so sorry for him because I feel I'm miserable to be around. He always laughs it off and says we're in this together. If I could get over this especially this saliva filling in my mouth I'd be so relieved.

Hi to all other mommies.
I am 10 weeks pregnant today ( first time pregnancy) so far it has been a rocky road but at least the morning sickness is over to be replaced by heartburn and headaches but I am not complaining it's all for a good cause. Can't wait for my baby to be born all healthy and sweet. :)

Hi Ladies,

I am 9 weeks and 3 days. I had a scan at 7 weeks 6 days and the baby was very healthy. I'm a little worried because my nausea has abated a little bit. I also hate the fact that I am on my feet 8 hours a day and I end up feeling like poo at the end of the day. err anyone else feeling off?
by mamalandry 13th Oct 2010, 9:15am
Hi everyone, I am new to the site. Today is my last day in week 9. I had a scan at 6 weeks which showed a strong heart beat so I am hoping that everything is OK. I am due to book the 12 week scan tomorrow. I am a bit anxious because I am 39 and expecting my second baby.
by liz29 11th Oct 2010, 9:26am
Hi everyone,I'm 9 weeks pregnant now :) stomach and lower back pain is decreasing.I'm noticing some brown or sometimes water like discharge but I guess that's normal.Still, I don't have any sickness or nausea, so I'm thankful for that.I have an appointment on coming Wednesday, hopefully I'll get to see my baby first time in an ultrasound......Can't Wait!!

I have been loosing some brown discharge and got lower tummy pains and back ache and lots of nausea but no sickness, but having read others are haing the same symptoms i'm ok now, Got an appointment with the mid-wife next week, and hopfully will sort a scan out soon, still not sinking in yet. Anyway good luck to everyone, keep relaxed, no stressing, and be happy xxxxxxxxx

Hi MommyLou!

Hi Everyone!
I am 37 and 9 weeks 1 day pregnant with my fourth baby! I have an 18 year old daughter, Molly, 6 year old son , Gabriel and 10 month old son, Tobias.
I have never felt so awful, really bad morning sickness and chronic tiredness! I am still on maternity leave with Tobias so feels crazy being pregnant again. I have had yellow and brown discharge, not much but feel worried! Also having mild cramping pain......midwife says it is normal but I am a worrier! Anyone else had this?
by MommyLou 3rd Sep 2010, 3:25pm
Hi Everyone.

I am 9 weeks pregnant (i think). got appt at hospital this week. I had a still birth at 24 weeks in 2007. In 2009 I have birth to a baby boy 3 months early (28 weeks). He was in hospital for 3 months. Now, he is absolutely fantanstic and not one thing wrong with him. Pregant now and really hoping that this one is full term. Never had any symptoms with last 2. This time i have everything. They say that this is sign of healthy baby, but dont know if that is old wives tale. they also say it could be a change in sex and i could be expecting a girl. Will wait and see. As long as he/she is healthy and please, please go full term. x

Hello everyone, im 9 weeks pregnant tomorrow and me and my boyfriend are really exited! I have an appointment booked on the 31st to listen to the babbies heartbeat. I can't wait! although im exited about having a baby theres the downside of baring morning sickness. every breakfast i have, i seem to bring back up. But i surpose its all worth it!!

Hi, other Mommy's to be! I'm 20 yrs old and this is my very first pregnancy. (: Although i am beyond excited (as is my boyfriend), at this point it seems like my mood swings are putting a strain on our relationship. Also, is it just me or does sex seem like.."urghhhh, get away!"? Any helpful tips/advice??
by RissaGayle 12th Aug 2010, 9:15am
Hi woozle5, I too am pregnant with number 4 after 3 sons! Although mine are a little younger @ 7, 3 & 1. I am sure what you are experiencing is just ligament pain as it's been a while since your body last did this My sis has just had her 4th after 11 years & said the cramps and pains early on were worse than she rememberd but all quite normal.
I myself am feeling quite good, i get a little nauseas late at night and a bit of back ache which im sure will get worse as i go on but generally feeling very good. I'm glad your scan showed all ok & i wish you a healthy, happy pregnancy! Are you hoping for a girl this time or happy for boy #4?
by St1na 12th Aug 2010, 9:14am
HI im pregnant with my first child and am 9 weeks today and very excited (even though my partner says we shouldn't get too far ahead of ourselves but its very difficult not too). I was diagnosed with PCOS and was receiving treatment from my Consultant when I underwent a minor procedure where I had dye put in my womb and tubes to check everything is ok before starting fertility drugs and by some mircle I conceived the very next day after 15 months of trying. I had a scan last week to make sure everything is as it should be and it is :) - Im feeling really well at present - the odd sick feeling but no tiredness as of yet and im hoping it will stay that way - im a very active person and go to the gym 3-4 times a week so im hoping this will have put me in good stead to keep the tiredness at bay - Good luck fellow mummy's to be
by Norgi 12th Aug 2010, 9:11am
Hi yer I am 9 week today i had to get my first 2 new maternity trousers as i am busting out of mine already it the first time i done this and wernt too sure what to go for but in the end i got elestcatic one hopefully they last longer as all my other trousers i wore previously has button and can no longer do the button up so i had to hide my trouser over long T shirt i find it some what embarrasing. Still first experince do maternity trousers next it be the underwear which i ain't too bother the fact is i am already overweight as it is so i am being real careful on what i am eating and trying to exercise as much as my body allowed me too but i refused to push it too much as it is my first i don't wana lose my baby neither i find it difficult to balance it all out my doctor said that i am doing fine that the baby is growing well so that is a relife especially with my medical condition too
by deaflady 12th Aug 2010, 9:10am

by LetteBug 21st May 2010, 4:10pm
Hello, im into my 9th week of pregnancy with my second child.....I have a 3yr old little girl, when I was pregnant with my little girl I suffered the worse sickness ever - Hyperemisis, this lasted for 3months and I was so ill, this time round ive been getting terrible sickness again, however not half as bad as having Hyperemisis again. Its a difficult time when you feel so sick, but I know it will (hopefully) pass soon, its just so difficult juggling a toddler and a full-time job feeling this way but I know its going to be worht it x
by luckyJess 21st May 2010, 3:56pm
Hi there i am 9 weeks pregnant with my second child, i have a daughter who will be 3 next month. At the moment i am really struggling with the constant sickness, before and after everything that i eat, its driving me mad. Last time all sickness stopped around 12 weeks so fingers crossed it goes this time again!
I really cant wait for my scan to make sure all is well, fingers crossed!
Good luck to all you mummies and daddies hehe!!

by michelletv 14th May 2010, 4:30pm
hi everyone am 9weeks 2days with my 2nd pregnancy altho this will be my 1st child, i had a missed miscarrage last aug which was a total shock me and my partner have been trying for a baby for over 3years so 2finaly get caught then have it taken away was heart breaking. i found out i was pregnant again at the beginin of jan when i was 3weeks so as u can imagin ive already had weeks of stress and worry. i had an early scan last tues and everythin was ok saw the heatbeat etc i have another one next tues when i will be 8weeks so fingers crossed everything will go well for us this time. even tho early scans are reasuring you still worry and probably will do untill 12week scan as theres a high chance the heart can stop up untill then. am very tired and have bad nausea feeling which gets wrose by teatimes somtimes bein sick, my boobs are tender and am constaly on the loo so there am confident there all good signs as last time they stopped. ladys if any of symptoms stop esp b4 10weeks go and see your doc for a scan it will put your mind at rest. has any1 else had a similar thing id love to hear from you good luck mummys xx
by dreha 14th May 2010, 4:00pm

hi every1. I am 9 weeks 4days, with my fourth baby. Feel really nervous all the time as i have had 3 previous miscarriages. Keep convincing myself everyday that i have lost this baby aswell. got my booking in next week, but that seems a lifetime away. have had couple of early scans and everything was fine. just cant wait till be past 12 weeks then i can start to relax.
by rach99 3rd Feb 2010, 9:50am
Hello. I am 9ish weeks - second baby - I have a 17month old boy. Yes - I do feel like aliens have taken over me!! Felt sick for the past 5 weeks and really tired and not very sociable! Going to work is hard and everything tastes funny. Worried as I don't feel like drinking anything or eating any healthy food. All I feel like is junk food like biscuits and bread. Last time the sickness went about Week 14 - don't know how I will last that long again!! Not sure myself about swine flu jab either - haven't heard of many people getting it recently. Think I'm gonna keep delaying it! xx
by Bondle 1st Feb 2010, 9:20am
Hey everyone.. Im 22 and expecting my first baby.... im 9 weeks 2 days and very excited even though i have terrible morning sickness and tired 24/7.. Makes me feel so useless sometimes :).. Anyways just thought Id say CONGRATS to all us mummies and goodluck with your pregnancies... :) :) Bring on 40 weeks :) :)
by hisbabymumma 1st Feb 2010, 9:20am
Hi everyone, does anybody else feel like the aliens have come down and taken over your body?! I'm 9 wks just and its my first babe. I'm excited (tho still in shock!) but finding it a little difficult holding down a full- time job whilst trying to cope with constant nausea and hormones running rife. Also wanted to ask whether anyone has any thoughts about the swine flu jab. I commute into central London every day and am a teacher so i'm 'high risk' but I'm reluctant to take the jab on the grounds that there is no evidence of long term effects the vaccination may/ may not have on your child.

Hello everyone, i saw this and thought id join the 9 week clan !
Im 9 weeks today with my 4th pregnancy, due 26th August. I have all boys so would be delighted to have a girl, but all in all just to have a healhy baby will be wonderful. Im 36 and have been and are sooo tired all the time, along with having nausea all day long. I haven't suffered with any problems through any of my previous pregnancies so dont know whether to put it down to having a girl or being in my 30s. Im also starting to get a belly on me, and my boobs have been killing me.. Anyway look forward to meeting you all :))
by Simplyzoe 27th Jan 2010, 9:32am
Hi mummys! I am 9 weeks pregnant today, I had a scan at 7 + 6 as we lost a baby in September and our very kind midwives have scanned me early for reassurance. I have a little girl aged two and a half, and I never remember being as sick with her as I am this time around. It goes on all day and night, and has been for about 4 weeks. I cant wait to have my next scan at 12 weeks, just so I can relax a little bit. It was a huge comfort having the scan last week and seeing the heartbeat etc, but I'm still anxious to get to 12 weeks. Lots of love and luck to everyone!!! xxx
by Amybex 27th Jan 2010, 9:32am
hey mummys to be. Ive just found out im pregnant not sure how far gone, roughly 9 weeks! I feel exhausted all the time and cant stop bein sick!

Good luck to every one :) xxxxxx

Hi there, I'm 37 and 9 weeks + 5 days today, due date is 19th August. I have a seven year old son, who will almost be eight when the baby arrives. I have strong nausea from early in the morning until about 11pm at night. Although I have not been sick yet, the nausea is difficult to deal with and is exactly what I had when I was pregnant with my son. During weeks 3 & 4 I had bright red discharge every day, and so had to go for 2 early pregnancy scans. The second one was at 7 weeks 5 days, and showed the baby with a heart beat, so fingers crossed everything is going well now. Would love to chat with other mums as it has been some time since I have gone through this!
by MummyClaire 21st Jan 2010, 9:20am
Hi Apoole87, I am 26 and my due date is 23 Aug! Very close to you! I have had no morning sickness although do feel a little queasy now and then (nothing terrible) and a bit hungrier than usual. A good thing is I am off chocolate! Had an emergency scan today at 9weeks and saw movement and heartbeat. Am terrified of something going wrong- cant wait to get to 12weeks. This is my first baby and I feel excited and nervous at the same time- eek!
by MrsAitken 21st Jan 2010, 9:20am
Hi there, I'm 22 and am 9 weeks pregnant exactly, my due date is 20th August. Am nervous about what to expect as this is my 1st baby. The fateher is really supportive and is thrilled at the thought of being a daddy. Got to see the baby today as got sent for an urgent scan, as the midwife thought I was 12 weeks. Have had no morning sickness, but strong garlic smell does affect me now! Would love to chat to other mums to be about their experience or mum's who can give me advise on what to expect.
by Apoole87 18th Jan 2010, 2:42pm
Hello all mommies! I am 31 and 9+1weeks today. I have a 12 year old daughter. Is anyone else pregnant in their 30's and finding it So very diffrent? I can't beleive how tired I am this time!

Hi to all moms! I'm 36 an this will be my 3rd baby. I'm really hoping it's a girl only because I have two boys. This will be my last baby. I'm so happy. With is one I have been very sick but I say to my self it's okay because it's a blessing. I was not trying. I'm showing I don't know why because it's very soon but I guess because I have the other two.

Hi, im 15 and 9weeks pregnant. I recently had a mifepristone tablet (1st stage of termination) after the first stage i totally changed my mind and decided i wanted to keep my baby! i regret totally taking the tablet and hope and prayer my baby will give me a second chance. I was forced by my boyfriend to have an abortion, now i have realised whats really important and thats what i want, no one else. Im advising anyone who is deciding on an abortion THINK really good and hard about it, because one done theres no going back. Because i took the mifepristone there is a chance i may miscary but the nurse at my hospital says shes dealt with girls in my case, who have taken the mifepristone tablet, changed thier mind, and gave birth to a healthy baby. But before you decide to take the mifepristone MAKE SURE this is what you want because it could lead to misscaridge if you dont carry on the termination. I hope this helps anyone who is in two minds of what to do. Remember its up to you, NOONE else.

HI to all mommies and mommies to be, Im 9 wks pregnant and i have cold for more than a month and having a cough for 1wk now. I am very worried for my baby, will that affect my baby inside? Pls. help me i am so worried and scared for my baby.

HI KatieB89, congrats on your pregnancy, I too am due around same time (08.04.10). Please don't worry about not having any morning sickness, just count yourself extremely lucky! I am a veteran at being pregnant, this is my 4th baby and my first 2 pregnancies I was sick, sick, sick, but with the 3rd I felt nauseous but not actually sick and this time I was sick once with a bit of nausea. I have two girls, one boy so may be that you are carrying a boy? The fact that you are so tired is down to the hormones, rest as much as you can and it will pass after 12 weeks. Hope this helps! xxxx
by emmad 7th Sep 2009, 10:57am
Hi all, I am 9 weeks gone and due around 03.04.09 - I havn't had my scan as yet but im slightly concerned as I have had no morning sickness however, I am extremely tired all the time and feel like I have the flu constantly! Is this normal as being my first I dont really know what to expect! Paracetamol doesn't seem to be working so is there anything else I should be taking..? I hope everything goes well for you all! xox
by KatieB89 2nd Sep 2009, 10:11am
HI everyone. Congrats to mummies on week 9. Just wanted to say to elle and nicola to try not to worry to much as what will be will be. I had a miscarriage in March which was very painful and poorly managed by paramedics - I was left alone at home to pass the foetus. Never been in so much pain and they didn't know what to do. They tried to put me off going to hospital saying nothing could be done. Anyway to my suprise I'm pregnant again and like yourselves naturally terrified it could happen again! It is normal around this time to keep checking for blood, your body is relaxing inside and producing discharge which can feel like bleeding you would get when you start a period. It is going slow but each week feel better that you are not alone. This site is great especially now when most of us are reluctant to tell anybody and we can share our feelings. To Elle, I can't imagine what is was like for you to lose a child so far along but take comfort that you can conceive naturally and you WILL have your family soon. glad to hear the heartbeat is ok, my chappies sister bled on and off for 3 months and her baby is due in 12 days now. At the time she was only 4 weeks in front of me, I bled once and it was game over.

This time round I feel different, yes scared but have been so sick, even watching the people on Jeremy Kyle makes me feel nauseous - esp. people with bad oral hygeine! I struggle to brush my own teeth most of the time in between heaving! Forget the dental appt. too scared i'll be sick over the equipment!!!

Good luck ladies. Eat well, try and rest hope your scans go well mine isn't until 22nd Sept!! Love cyprus brummie1xxxxxxxxx

Hi alll, im 9 weeks pregnant, & found out i was pregnant just 3 weeks ago. Had a scare 2 days after finding out i was pregnant as i started to loose blood. Went to the early pregnancy clinic for a scan & all was well. Baby in correct place & healthy heartbeat. I didnt get to see the baby, but was reassured everything was ok. I am worried though as i am still loosing a tiny amount of brown blood, but have been told this is the end of the blood that came out 2 weeks ago. Also had a still born child in 2000, and i was 7 and half months gone. It was terrible, but i am trying to remain positive. On a brighter note i am sooo very happy & so glad i came across this site. All of the comments have made me feel better & will keep posting. Congrats & good luck to you all xx
by ElleTee81 24th Aug 2009, 9:07am
i have a four year old daughter already and i am 9 weeks pregnant now we have been tryin for 6 months so very happy but it feels like its going so slow and i find myself constantly worring and checking for blood.
by nicola23 24th Aug 2009, 9:07am
Hi playwithsarah, yes I was toatally on my own (with help from family) throughout my pregnancy and at the same time I was having to help care for my late mum who had cancer. I know that it doesn't feel the same not having the dad there but in my experience your family can help make it just as special. When I gave birth I had my mum, dad and Nana there and seeing my daughter born was the best for them and it has given them a bond for life. My daughter is nearly 4 now and I am expecting a baby with my new partner. I will be lovely for this baby to have two doting families but I can't imagine a bond the same as with my daughter and I as for a time it was just me and her againt the world. They are the most important thing. You'll be fine!!!
by amysbaby2 14th Jul 2009, 5:55pm
hi all, I'm 9 wks pregnant and had my first scan last week as I lost my first baby 18 months ago at 7 weeks. got a positive heartbeat and get another scan in 2 weeks so it will be amazing to see the change. My morning sickness is absolutely awful, even though am not being properly sick the heaving is so embarrassing, from having to run out of the office to wandering round the supermarket like a special case cos I can't make the heaving quiet!!!! I may have found something though that could help morning do a vitamin drink apple & raspberry I think that has extra vitamin c and zinc in. It's a bit expensive at £1.75 a bottle (500ml) but whenever I drink it I don't have any sickness for the rest of the day. Worth trying for all other mums2b that are sick of being sick!!!!

Message for tina,
Im not sure how far along i am yet (only just found out im pregnant, and a weird period has led me to thin i could be 9 weeks ish) i have already stopped fitting in all my clothes (apart from those with elastic waistlines) This is my 10th pregnancy although i only successfully had two children... this is a nerve racking time for me, but im kinda glad that im starting to need bigger clothes.. its a good sign!
by Hummingbird1 30th Jun 2009, 12:00pm
Lbicky, its not iron you need at the moment because now you are pregnant you arent losing iron in the blood from your periods. Its folic acid you need and all the other vitamins just not too much vit A. Good luck! x

A message for Linda (Lbicky) I too am 9 weeks pregnant, and don't suffer from the morning sickness (which is worrying but at the end of the day very lucky!) I have invested in a couple of pregnancy books which i recommend any expectant mother to buy, as they are ideal for all the info you need and on what to expect. Although i am concerned i'm not getting morning sickness i always remember everyone experiences pregnancy differently, so it's perfectly normal. Also it's extremely important that you take folic acid for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy! And i would do this straight away. This helps prevent your baby from developing a defect of their spinal cord such as spina bifida. Ideally you are ment to take them if your planning to get pregnant also. I'm quite surprised your GP didn't tell you to do this anyway. But please do start taking it ASAP! Good luck! Katy xx

hi, im 9 weeks pregnant and going for my booking appointment tomorrow. this will be my second child and i have a few concerns. i seem to have put lots of weight on over the past few weeks and to look at me you would think i was more like 6mths pregnant, has anyone else found this. also when my baby is born my son will be 10yrs old and i worry how he will cope with a new baby in the house, as he has been the only child for so long, i have spoilt him and find it hard to say no to him. i fear he is going to find it difficult to adjust and have to share me, any advice would be great . xxx

Hiya,I'm 9weeks pregnant today.if got my first scan on the 21st of may I'm excited and scared cox it's my first and it will all seem really when I go for my scan.iv not been sick and I still get pains mostly in the morning which worries me alot my partner and mom don't belive I'm pregnant cox if not got all the basic signs of pregnancy I can't wait to have the scan so I could show or prove I am pregnant,I read on the net that I should be taking supplement pills for iron or something like that I'm not sure I should untill I see the midwife or gp plz if anyone could help with a little advice I'd be very greatful thank u linda 21
by Lbicky 11th May 2009, 11:37am
Hi all, I am 9+5 weeks pregnant. I am really excited about it but scared too as it is my first. I don't know what to expect and have not got friends to ask, so I rely on internet info and education through books. Happy I can share my concerns through this medium. I haven't been experiencing major sickness except some severe stomach ache now and again. I ate ice some days back and had some terrible tommy pain and realized perhaps I shouldn't have had it. Anyway, best of luck to us all.
by TWan 7th May 2009, 9:14am
hi vix222 i just read your comment and im to in the same boat as you i think its fine dont worry bout what others may think its your body and your life just be happy and not too stressed about it
by maryland 5th May 2009, 12:14pm
Hi to the 45 year old with concerns,I to am 45 infact weeks off of being 46.I already have 7 children ranging from the age of 25 down to 2.This last little mishap was a complete surprise as I thought I was over the hill for conceiving.But I should of known by my track record that age wasnt going to stop the life cycle continuing in my household.We are overjoyed but are a little afraid of telling the others,onle because my oldest has just had his first baby and I have a new name of nana.Im a young 45 but im sure my kids wont agree as I think they consider your ancient once you hit 30.One thing that does really worry me is having this cvs,part of me is keen to find out if everything is well and good but the other half is worried sick,what are other mummys views on this subject ?
by mummy8 5th May 2009, 12:14pm
Hi, i'm also alot older than most you see pregnant. i am 35, i have 2 children who are 13 & 16 so quite a big age gap. i was told due to medical illnessess i didnt need to take precautions as i did not have periods, bt here i am, 8wk 6 days. i am feeling so ill at this stage and getting severe headaches and stomach cramps.
by 1973jojo 27th Apr 2009, 9:32am
hi. im 9 weeks pregnant-and 45 years old.
im terrified i will be the oldest one and scared of complications. i had pre eclampsia with my daughter who is nearly 10. i only came off the pill to try and reduce my still high blood pressure-the doc told me it was close to impossible to get pregnant at my age without outside medical help!! whatever.
we are delighted and exited- we have our nuchal; and dating scans booked, i have medication which appears to be controlling my stupid blood pressure, but i just feel very isolated as everyone seems to be 21! im a very young and very fit 45-but still 45 and scared of being mistaken for its gran. is anyoune else out there feeling like this?
by bev621 20th Apr 2009, 9:28am

Hi Everyone!

I am 9 weeks and 3 days pregnant with my first baby. I am so excited and cant wait for my first scan which is on the 21st April. I am feeling sick and tired all the time and my boobs are really sore. Everything that i usually eat is making me feel sick, so i never feel like eating anything but i know that i have to. My partner is being a big support but i cant help but feel lonely and emotional all the time. Is this normal? Hope everything goes well for everyone xx
by Kaylzmarie 2nd Apr 2009, 9:07am

by roxie23 30th Mar 2009, 9:37am
Hi there all,
I'm 9+2 weeks pregnant and on my second pregnancy. I have 4 year old twin boys and now on my third and final. Don't know about you, but am feeling super stressed yet excited all at the same time, my poor husband does't know whether he's coming or going with the endless hormonal incidents.
Am feeling sooo bloated and can't wait for a bump so that people at work don't just think i've become incredibly chubby all of a sudden.
Sickness has settled a little and am only starting to feel sick now when hungry. 12 week scan's booked for 30th March and very much looking forward as early scan was soo tiny, v hard to make anything out.
Good luck ladies

Hi Brenda84.
I'm sorry to hear that your team leader is giving you a bad time. I don't know the answer to your question, but I guess the baby is part of you so try to stay calm and not let things get to you too much.

Hello mothers =D. i am about 9 weeks pregnant, I am on my second time pregnancy, but my other fetus passed, due to being mal-nurture. That was four years ago and I have gained wait and am more fit. I have felt sore breast with in the first 4 weeks of pregnancy. but my nipples are now feeling itchy. started for me right away. I have been experiencing Nausea ion easily, by smells, ( meat especially) ( I have herd ginger helps with foods. but water works best for smells, I believe) and getting up. I notice a slight pain or discomfort in my left side (witch is another sign of constipation the doctor says) I am hopeful and have not really felt any pain, or warning signs. if anyone knows a few tips about caring or remedies, exercises, foods, that might help the baby be healthy, fit, I am open.
Thank you and I wish you all well.

by reyna 23rd Feb 2009, 12:58pm
Hi every1 and congratulations to us all hey!!. I am 9 weeks and 4 days pregnant and have had 2 scans already. Cant believe i am pregnant as i gave up trying last year after losing a baby at 19 weeks and another at 14 weeks, due to an infection of the womb which was believed to be brought on by BV. Unfortuantly i have BV again in this pregnancy and was wondering if anyone out there has managed to get to full term with this condition. I also have 2 children aged 14 and 12. I am worried sick and would be really grateful if anyone knows anything about this topic to try to keep me sane over the coming months.
by Happyagain 17th Feb 2009, 9:42am
hi about 9 1/2 weeks, feeling so tired and lazy all the time...going through nausea aswell.and the worst of all having to run to the toilet every 30 mins...driving me mad but its all for the best at the end i suppose...ive got a bump but not sure wether its a bump or just fat!!!!got my 1st scan in about 2 weeks..
congrats and best of luck to all the mums to be (especially 1st timers like me!!!)
by nazb 17th Feb 2009, 9:42am
Hello all. I'm 9 weeks pregnant too and been suffering prolonged nausea! Can't stand the thought/smell of meat anymore (which does have its benefits as hubby cooks now...) Also sore boobs, constipation, tiredness and the occasional mood swing... Great - though I don't care - I haven't had a scan yet so its proof that baby is still there. Struggling through work with an employer who I don't want to know just yet.. First midwife appointment next week!!
by SRem0311 17th Feb 2009, 9:42am
Hi all! i am 9 weeks pregnant. first baby! since my pregnancy i am not able to eat vegetables or anything green yet this is rich in folic acid. green things cant pass down my throat coz of nausea. every day is a night mare for me. all the things i liked to eat taste different now and i don't eat them anymore. i am very very bad with appetite. i only drink soups with hot chillies and fruits. O! dear! cant wait to be normal again. but i am extremely over joyed and excited about my baby.

by Immababy 6th Feb 2009, 12:49pm
Hi everyone, i'm 9 weeks today - i've had 4 scans so far (i'm having one weekly for my peace of mind) due to having 2 miscarriages last year... so far everything is brilliant, no bleeding, no problems and morning sickness - i've only been sick once (yesterday) but just felt sick othertimes - sickness only started last week - but i'm OVERWHELMINGLY tired - i'm in bed at 9pm every night and can't get up to get my son too school - it's awful i'm napping in the afternoon aswell! - never been this tired in my life! - had a few headaches too - but otherwise all is well - good luck to everyone! xxx
by yummymummy77 8th Jan 2009, 5:41pm
i think i am 9wks also but have my scan tomorrow so i will have more of an idea i really vannot wait.
i am also feeling flutterings already, and still am a little bit in shock thinking i am making the whole thing up my scan will put my mind at rest....i hope! :) michelle you may only be 21, i am 30 and a 1st timer and i dont think the age or the amount of kids you have change that becoming a mother must be the most scariest yet rewarding thing ever. i am on my own and have the same panic whether i am going to be good enough and whether i will be able to provide for us both and give my baby the best life i can. You shouldnt feel forced to have a baby is one of lifes miracles a little blessing for you! Although i have this fear of the future and measuring up to super mum standards, that fear is nothing in comparison to not having this chance to do the best i can. After all, all we can do is our best and i may not have the biggest wallet but my babay will be dripping with love! ps i have just got back to normal from the emotional roller coaster i was riding a couple of weeks ago, that fair wasnt all that fun. Good luck to everyone

I have a scan tommorrow as i have had a previous m/c, although i had a healthy pregnancy after & now have a 5 yr old daughter, i'm still very nervous something's going to go wrong. Can't wait to see my baby on the screen for real though, so keeping my fingers crossed everything is ok, maybe i'll be bale to chill out a bit then & stop being such a monster mum & wife!

Hi, This is my first baby, very unexpectedly as I'm not supposed to be able to have babies. I'm 40 years old and have been very frightened. I've had a ccouple of internal scans to make sure the foetus is where it should be and that there is heart beat, which there is and is really strong. Now that we are over the shock of seeing 'that' blue line, me and partner are soooo pleased. I didn't think I could feel any more love for him than I did, but this has introduced a whole new level. I cannot wait for my next scan to see the development. I love logging onto this website ever day to see how my baby is developing and what to expect from my body now. I'm exhausted all the time, but no morning sickness yet...touch wood it won't come either. I hope all you other mum's to be are as happy as I am.
by WendyWoo22 1st Dec 2008, 9:23am
Hi all..... well I am around 9wks and 3 days as well!!! I pretty much feel ill constantly... its not very nice!!!

by GreekChick 11th Nov 2008, 9:49am

Hi Everyone i'm Rachel 9wks pregnant today. also had a misscarriage about this time last year with a Empty Sack. For this pregnancy was sent for a 5wk scan which only showed an empty sack again! after what seamed to be the longest week of my lifewhent for another Scan to find a baby and a heartbeat.
Feeling very tired and sick but loving the fact there is a baby inside me I love. Hope everything goes well for everyone and keep my finger crossed over the next few week of the first trimester xxxx
by Tighe 3rd Nov 2008, 10:11am
Hi, I'm in my ninth week and feeling sick and tired all the time. I've just spent a week in France - being a pregnant vegetarian is very difficult over there!!!! This is our first baby so I'm very excited but anxious at the same time. I've never felt so ill for such a prolonged time and just have to keep reminding myself that this is probably a good sign that the baby is healthy. xx

Hi, I am 9 weeks pregnant for the second time round. A year and a half ago, when I was pregnant with my first I used to look on this and see all the funny comments people would write and see that all new mums to be were going through things together, which made the suffering easier. I promised myself that if I was pregnant I would join. Lets hope the next 7 months will be as interesting as the first. lol

hi all, im also 9wks pregnant with my 1st baby and for a day or two i thought i was done with morn sickness but it's like its back with a vengence. i have nausea all day n i truly can;t stand the smell of anything anymore. i feel tired all the time have an ongoing headache and a running tummy. I was really excited to find out that i was pregnant but the last couple of weeks have turned my excitement down. Was on annual leave and have to go back to work next week. Any tips on what to do if this continues??

Hello everyone!! I have nevre done this before so bear with me :o) Im Nikki, 22 and i found out I was pregnant about four weeks ago! Im 9 weeks on friday 3rd Oct. I was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovaries ( I think thats how you spell it) when I was 15..young I know but ever since then I always wondered about having children. a few of my friends had children young and i thnk that just made me more broody! Anyway 7 yrs on I have finally heard the news I have been longing for! Me and my partner have been steady for a long time and we both have really good jobs and our own home so we was going to start trying just after new year this year. I am so happy! Is it normal for it to feel so unreal even at this stage??? I started to bleed a lil last week..I was so scared!!! I had an emergency scan and every thing is ok thank god!!! Just seeing the heartbeat on the screen made me cry my eyes out!! I just feel at the minute am waiting for something to go wrong..Iv read up on so many things and with my having PCOS i am more likely to can i relax!!!! Any advice would be great!!! oh and i do tend to go on a lil......sorry :o) Speak soon, Niki xxx

Hi Sammy, I too am 9 weeks pregnant and I am nervous as I suffered a missed miscarriage in April at my 11 week scan. I have noticed my symptoms are worse this time. Last time I just had continuous nausea, this time I have had nausea, absolute exhaustion and constipation causing daily abdominal ache! I have not told my 7 year old about the baby yet because last time he was home when I came in from my scan very upset. I have a scan on Thursday (2nd Oct) and am hoping that things will be ok this time. Good luck and keep posting on here. My due date is 5th May too!

I am shattered and bloated but otherwise I feel great! This is my first, so I am just counting down until my scan on the 23rd Sept to know that baby is ok!! Once I hear that little heart-beat I will relax a bit!!
Luckily my husband is an angel and is 'keeping house' for me while I sleep a lot - LOL!

Hey :) im 9 weeks and havent even seen a doc yet! Our first midwife appt is in two days, excited and nervous all at once. This will be my second child, but my partners first (my son is 5 from a previous relationship) this time round I have all the symptoms going, moodiness, tiredness, bad skin, heart burn, and the main two are feeling sick 'all' day and my sense of smell has gone through the roof - its crazy! I have no sex drive either so feel so sorry for my partner, im like a different person :( we're so happy about having a child, although i wont deny we havent had the pleasure of enjoying the experience just yet.. but watch this space :) xx oh! ps My belly has got alot bigger already - obviously this isnt baby just yet but im very bloated in the evenings and my tummy feels like a water bed lol! niiiice

Wow---Embrace and MBW....I am going through the same! I am 9 1/2 wks and had fluctuations in symptoms. I was concerned and called my doc which said it's normal. I also had a missed miscarriage before but its been eight years ago. In between I had a beautiful baby girl who is 6 yrs old now. Its tough to keep the faith in these first few weeks. I wish I could go for a scan each week for peace of mind. However I try to remain with the idea that I read in another post - PUPO...pregnant until proven otherwise! The way I see it is God has His hand on everything---therefore pray through it! That's what I am attempting to do everysecond of the day. I don't have my next appointment until Friday of next week and will update then.
God bless you both and just know you're not alone! (or a newly diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic).heehee

MBW~your comment could not have come at a better time. i freaked out a little this morning too. i am also 9 weeks and this last fall we miscarried at 14 weeks. i am thought of as high risk (bc of the late term mc) so they are monitering the heart beat every week. my next appointment is on this friday, however, i did not feel at ease this morning so i made an appt this afternoon.

i wish i could put you at ease but i'm sure i speak for both us when i say, "it won't be until the little one is in our arms screaming back at us that we'll feel comfort" but i am sure YOU ARE FINE. just try to completely take your mind off of it. even if it means neurotically blogging . i can say that going to the Dr. weekly to hear/see the heartbeat has helped me tremendously. maybe do the same? one day at a time.

I am 9 wks pregnant and I am very nervous of the uncertainty of whether my baby is still alive. Had a missed miscarriage in Feb this year so very anxious about the first 12 wks, has anyone else got these concerns as well and what can I do to keep myself sane?

I am due on the 6th Feb and am 9 weeks pregnant now, am feeling so unhappy at the moment as I dont feel like my partner understands me. He is aware that I will have mood swings and be hormonal but he just isn't dealing with it very well - he gets angry back, please help. He's happy about becoming a Dad but has shown no interest in how the baby is developing from week to week. So sad.....

I had a scan done 3 days ago as i had abit of a scare, but luckily everything is fine. Funnily enough my baby is the size roughly of a jelly bean and was moving around. It was amazing to see especially the heart beat. This is my second child and I have to say yes my waist line has got thicker and i feel like i'm filling out alot quicker this time (not to happy about um!) I'm very tired at the moment and could sleep allday and my skin is a little spotty and i really need to wee at night ha ha, hopefully this will pass soon. Apart from that i am enjoying the pregnancy very much. Good luck with yours too x
