Our Juicy Grape

*I'm not quite sure what is going on with my spacing so please be patient with me while I try to figure it out. **UPDATED** Thank you Stef for showing me how to fix it.

How far along? 9 weeks 1 day

Baby's size and stats? Baby is the size of a GRAPE. His/her fingernails are growing and bones are forming. He/she is one inch long!

Gain? Not completely sure. Doctor does not check everytime so I'm guessing 1-2 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Yes, I bought a few pairs of maternity pants and they are sooo comfortable. My stomach is very bloated and I feel like I look 6 months pregnant so these pants are awesome. I am planning to purchase a belly band so I can wear my work pants a little longer.

Sleep? I have been sleeping great lately. I bought a body pillow today so I'm hoping that helps with my back issues. Laying only on my left side is taking it's toll on my hips.

Foods I am/ am not loving? Still hate meat. Loving fruit and yogurt. I walked down the bread aisle today and was ready to bread is out!

Best moment this week? Reaching 9 weeks and having lots of least i know something is going on in there.

Symptoms/Emotions? I've been very emotional (I blame it on the shows I watch, thanks alot Army Wives). I seem to have alot more nausea these days, and yesterday I started having a headache and it has yet to disappear.

Gender? I'm still voting on boy, but praying for a healthy girl OR boy.

What I'm thankful for: Friends who share my joy. Friends who are pregnant along with me. Family who are very supportive and a husband who is very understanding of my outrageous-sometimes-ridiculous emotional breakdowns.

Prayer Requests: This is one is a little selfish, but I could really use prayers. I had a small scare yesterday and I could really use prayers that God will take away my anxiety and allow this baby to grow!!

**Since last week was our last ultrasound, I promise to start posting belly pictures soon. Jeff is still gone in the field so when he gets back we will start taking belly photos.

Thinking of you girlie! I don't blame you for being worried, pregnancy can be a scary thing! But I'm sure everything is just fine with you and the little grape! =) I hope you are feeling better!

Oh and the headaches suck! I have them all the time!

Hey pretty lady!!! I feel like I'm reading about myself! I did the belly band thing with work pants, I hated the smell of bread, and I've had awful migraines lately!

I can't believe you are almost 9 weeks! We definitely need to see a belly picture!

I will say a prayer for you and your little one... it can't hurt!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
