We explain to you how your body evolves with 9 weeks of pregnancy and how your baby is growing. We will help you to clarify all your doubts.
Week 9 – 1st day
Your baby weighs less than 10 grams but is growing fast. All parts of the body are already present, such as arms, legs, eyes and organs, including genitals, although they are not fully formed. The ear is ready from the outside and, by the end of this week, it will also be formed from the inside.
Now that he has developed all the basic structure of the body, it will start to gain weight and size in an incredible way. It looks more like the baby you’ll have in your arms in a couple of months.
Week 9 – 2nd day
Have fun admiring the way your body evolves and transforms during pregnancy to host the baby and respond to all your needs. For example, at the time of delivery. The baby’s head has to come out somehow. Thankfully, the body of a future mother has a trick for that: the hormone relaxin.
Her pregnancy still goes unnoticed, but within her already has unleashed a huge volume of changes that she feels perfectly in her day to day. Heartburn , gas, mood swings, nausea… This is still the first trimester of your pregnancy and your body continues to gradually adapt to the presence of a “filh”.
Week 9 – 3rd day
It depends a little on the regularity of your menstrual cycle. Most doctors calculate the expected delivery date by counting 40 weeks from the first day of last menstruation. But these accounts are not accurate and so it is best to consider the date of delivery as an approximate date.
Another way to calculate gestation time is by ultrasound, by measuring the size of the baby. The development of the child during the first trimester of pregnancy varies little from woman to woman. Which makes it more accurate to calculate the weeks of pregnancy that have passed. The sooner the embryo measurement is made. The more accurate the likely date of delivery will be. From three months on, however, this calculation becomes more complicated, since variations in the size and development of each baby are much larger.
Week 9 – 4th day
Treatment and Sleeping
It is normal that the first three months of pregnancy are the most tiring for you, even if there is not yet a belly to carry. Listen to the signals that your body gives you and take it whenever you can.
If, suddenly, you get stuck in the vicious circle of sleepless nights and days falling asleep, remember that this happens with almost all pregnant women. Explain to everyone that you need sleep and sleep, even if it’s just that yummy after-lunch nap on the weekends.
Each person is different, but in the pregnant the fatigue usually is greater in the first quarter and the beginning of the second quarter. The good thing is that by the middle of the second quarter you should feel an energy injection, enough to last until the third quarter. It is the ideal time to enjoy the pregnancy and take care of all the preparations for the arrival of the baby. After the seventh month, your energy level should begin to drop again.
Week 9 – 5th day
You can not tell exactly when the tummy of pregnancy will begin to give the first signs, since this varies greatly from woman to woman. Most pregnant women, however, see their belly blossoming between the 12th and 16th weeks.
By about 12 weeks of pregnancy, the uterus expands above the pubic bone, which is the ossicle above the vagina. If the belly starts to grow before that , it may be due to a swelling due to the hormonal changes that your body undergoes.
Try not to worry too much if the pregnant belly takes time to show up, because the uterus can stay in different positions inside the body, influencing the appearance of the belly. Lower belly at the beginning of gestation does not in any way mean a smaller baby at birth, so try to stay calm. Baby size will be calculated (and compared to expected) only in the second and third trimesters.
Week 9 – 6th day
Suddenly you feel an urgent and irrepressible desire to eat a certain thing? Do you see yourself tormented by the famous ” desires “? The truth is that it is unknown whether these imperative desires obey psychological or metabolic motives, but it is important to satisfy them. This is the right time to take advantage and let yourself spoil yourself a bit, but without excesses, of course.
The name says a lot, since its function is to relax the cartilage of the bones. However, this hormone does not only affect the pelvis. Present 10 times more in pregnancy than at normal times, all joints of the body are affected. It is the reason some pregnant women experience joint and back pain. And if before you conceived you were wearing less, do not worry, the fault is relaxin and loosened ligaments.
It is no exaggeration to say that if pregnancy were an orchestra, calcium would be a strong candidate for conductor. This is because it both regulates processes of the maternal organism directly involved in gestation (such as blood clotting and nutrient flux for the baby), and how it influences the formation of the fetus.
It is not only in dairy products that you find the calcium you need to supply your needs and those of your baby. Canned sardines, cabbage, broccoli, beans and sesame are alternatives for those who can not (or detests) milk, cheeses, curds and other derivatives. And you have several reasons to include these foods in the diet. One of them comes from a worldwide survey promoted by the World Health Organization (WHO).
According to the study, the nutrient reduces the complications associated with pre-eclampsia – a disease that affects 5% of pregnant women and can lead to premature labor. First-time moms who already suffered from high blood pressure before pregnancy and moms over 35 are more prone to pre-eclampsia.
Week 9 – 7th day
Water and Health
It is essential to drink plenty of water to stay properly hydrated. Throughout pregnancy, the mother’s body undergoes physiological changes to respond to the new needs and to bring to the baby the substances necessary for its development.
The increase of water in the body of the future mother is one of the most important modifications during pregnancy: the mother is able to hold between four and six liters of water to ensure the needs of the baby. The water exchanges between the amniotic fluid and the mother are incredible: it is estimated to correspond to about 460 ml per hour. Avoid soft drinks, rich in sugars you do not need. Reduce your intake of salt, fats and sweets. Your baby’s health thanks you and yours too.
Tips of Pregnancy
It’s time to take a pregnancy test!
If any symptoms make you suspect you may be pregnant, buy a pregnancy test at the pharmacy to confirm your suspicions. These tests detect the presence of the beta-hCG hormone in the urine, with ß-hCG values above 25 mIU / ml in the blood or urine indicating that you are pregnant .
Each test brand has a sensitivity that is determined by the manufacturer and can be found in the instructions that came with the product.
Currently, there are tests of high sensitivity and specificity that allow the identification of pregnancy even before the menstrual period. However, in most cases, the positivity arises after 7-10 days after the menstrual period, ie at the end of the 5th week without menstruation.
Tips for your partner
Prepare emotionally for the possibility of losing the baby. The loss of a baby, expected and desired, is always a fragile time when the woman wonders about why.
Talk and talk openly about what happened, no hurt. Talk to your doctor and clarify any doubts about abortion and its effects.
Encourage your partner to do some kind of physical exercise, as well as deal with things you enjoy doing, such as reading, listening to music, being with friends, or going to the movies. Therapies like reiki, yoga, or pilates help to relax and improve stress and anxiety levels .
Tips for a quiet symptoms
- If you do not have a regular gynecologist, start looking for one
- Schedule your first prenatal visit if you suspect you are pregnant
- See the conditions of your health insurance for childbirth and health care for the baby
- Do accounts and try to figure out how your baby will affect family finances
- Make a savings plan.
The actual duration of pregnancy (which begins to count from the day your egg is fertilized by the sperm) is 268 days, that is, 38 weeks.
Since it is practically impossible to define the exact day on which the ovum is fertilized , it was agreed to date the pregnancy from the 1st day of the last menstrual period . If we count the age this way, the duration of the pregnancy is of 280 days (approximately), or 40 weeks ( 10 lunar months ).
When to try to become pregnant again after an abortion?
After a loss, emotional recovery usually takes longer than physical recovery. Ideally, you should wait 3 to 6 months to try to become pregnant again. This is the time your body needs to return to normal, and your reproductive system is back to normal. At this point, you should consult your doctor to re-prepare the pregnancy.
After a miscarriage , you can start ovulating in 3 to 4 weeks. At this time, the uterus is still fragile, so it is advisable to use contraceptive methods such as the pill or condom to avoid a new pregnancy in such a short time. The risk of getting a new abortion increases by 50% if you do not choose to regularize the menstrual cycle before attempting to become pregnant again.
Changing your habits
It is necessary to pay close attention to the consumption of drugs during pregnancy , especially in the beginning of gestation. In fact, many of the chemicals pass through the placenta and reach the fetus , with the risk of harming its formation. Before taking any medicine during pregnancy , you need the consent of your gynecologist .
If you lead a sedentary life, you should start changing your habits. Start walking daily and do some kind of moderate exercise or practice some relaxation technique like yoga . You should feel good physically and prepare your muscles for the weight you will soon have to endure.
