Pregnancy Facts - Week 9

How big is your baby in week 9 of pregnancy

Stating the obvious, but your baby is now bigger than last week. This week, your baby is about 0.91 inches (2.3 centimeters) big and weighs 0.071 ounces (2.0 grams).

Your baby's development in week 9 of pregnancy

Hey, good news! Your baby is starting to look more human-like each day. While your baby's fingers and toes still aren't quite fingers and toes yet, they're also not nearly as webbed as they were last week. It should now be possible to distinctively count each one of them.


The joints like knees, elbows, wrists and ankle are forming, making it much easier for your baby to dance "the robot".


Your baby's eyes are no longer two little dots on your baby's face like they were in week 6. While they are starting to resemble human eyes, they will not open until around week 28. There's nothing really to see in the womb anyway.


The tongue and the taste buds on it are starting to grow, but the only thing your baby will taste until birth is amniotic fluid. And pee. And poop. Your baby doesn't think much of the taste, given the fact that your baby has nothing else to benchmark against.


As of this week, all of your baby's major internal organs are now under construction. They aren't all functioning yet, but they are rapidly taking shape.

What's happening in week 9 of pregnancy

By now, you may have noticed a change in your weight. It might be a surprise to you, but some women may actually have lost weight since the beginning of pregnancy. Most usually gain weight though. It's normal either way. If you have concerns though, you should check in with a medical professional.

The first trimester pregnancy symptoms are more than likely still making you feel awful. Not to worry, it gets better at around week 13, the week when the first trimester ends.
