Staying Alive ? — 9 Weeks Pregnant
Hanging in there mama? Houston: We have a baby. ? This week, all your baby's essential organs are growing! His toes are becoming distinct and his arms start to bend at his elbows. Your baby also has nipples! Teeny, tiny, adorable li'l nipples.
On the lady bits front, you may also notice some other, um, exciting early pregnancy developments— like increased whitish vaginal discharge, constipation or heartburn. Good times! To fight constipation , eat foods with lots of fiber and drink lots of water. (Talk to your doctor, too: She knows all the tricks.)
P.S. We can't say this enough: It will get better. For many mamas, right now is when morning sickness is at its worst. To recap: Stay hydrated. Try ginger. Eat small meals. Talk to your boss if needed. And just hang on. It gets better. We promise. ?
