9w, 0d: Our Little Grape

Baby Burnham is officially a fruit now! For those who are a bit confused about what I am talking about, babycenter.com goes through each week how big your baby is, and starting at four weeks the order is poppy seed to sesame seed to lentil to blueberry to kidney bean and now to grape at 9 weeks! We have finally moved out of the legume category and will be on fruits (and maybe some vegetables) for the rest of the pregnancy. Woohoo!

The baby also has all of his/her vital organs developed, and is ready to grow and grow and grow!

Just a warning: babycenter also tells me that mood swings set in somewhere between 6 and 10 weeks and hang around until sometime in the 2nd trimester, so you may want to avoid me for the next few weeks. :-P

As long as we remember, I'll have Jonathan take my 9 week belly picture tonight. I also have some pictures of our first baby gift to post, too! Thanks, Jamie, Jennifer, Bill and Brian!

UPDATE:
My bella bands and maternity boppy are arriving today! Woohoo!!!

UPDATE #2:

Belly picture:

You can tell my pants are unbuttoned here... Heh. Sorry, guys. They don't button any more! My lovely Bella bands arrived today, though, so I can start leaving my zipper down, too! (For those of you who aren't educated about Bella bands, they are basically a stretchy band that goes around your waist/belly and holds up your pants, so that you can leave your pre-pregnancy pants unbuttoned/unzipped and wear them longer into your pregnancy!

Our first baby present was a lovely Willow Tree figurine: "New Life." 5 points to the first person who can guess where it is!
