My Pregnancy Week 9Brought to you by
Your baby has grown in the last week. Now almost an inch long, she is about the size of a grape and weighs less than an ounce. In the coming weeks, your baby will continue to gain weight rapidly, as her basic physiology is finally in place. Her heart has divided into four unique chambers, and her muscles and organs are able to move independently.
His eyes are fully formed; but at week nine, his eyelids are fused shut. Look for him to open his eyes for the first time around week 27! The tiny tail your baby once had is now entirely gone and his sex organs have developed. However, it is probably still too soon for your doctor to discern your baby's sex. If you are hoping to find out what you are having, hang on just a bit longer. Most parents find out the sex of their baby around weeks 16 – 20, and that is right around the corner.
