9 Weeks Pregnant Symptoms

Oh helloooo all day nausea and tiredness – just two of my 9 weeks pregnant symptoms!

This week has been exhausting – I did hear that morning sickness peaks at around 9 weeks pregnant and it’s true to form for me so far.

However, of course I’m glad to have the nausea if it means the pregnancy is progressing as it should – it helps a bit with the miscarriage paranoia.

Here’s how the rest of my symptoms are going this week:

9 Weeks Pregnant

9 Weeks Pregnant Symptoms

Nausea and fatigue – as above!  I’m still going to bed at 7pm every night and by 1pm I could easily sleep at work if it was allowed. On the subject of work, I braved telling my boss this week that I’m pregnant. I didn’t feel I could hide my symptoms from her for much longer and wanted to be honest. I knew she would be lovely about it and she was wonderful! Very supportive and so happy for me – yay!  We decided not to tell anyone else until after the 12 week scan of course.

Acid reflux is still as evil as ever :(

Lack of motivation – I don’t know if this is the hormones, a result of the tiredness or pure laziness but I just don’t have much motivation to do anything! Except sleep and try to eat! Which sucks as I just moved house and there’s soooo much to do :(

My Body

Bloat – sooooo much bloat! Still early days so no official bump but the bloating makes me look 6 months’ pregnant I’m sure – lovely. I’ve also started rubbing my tummy like I did in the 3rd trimester last time – this needs to stop!

Hormonal acne – urgh – I think I’d forgotten this from last time around but my skin is pretty awful – dull, clogged pores and so oily :(. I do remember it improving a lot though through my last pregnancy so I HOPE that happen again. Last time round I also got hyperpigmentation on my cheek and I can see this making a comeback slightly – nooooo.

The Baby

I thought I’d have a go at finding the heartbeat myself on my Sonoline B doppler (affiliate link) but no luck yet – still very early days though so I’m not worried. I did find it with my first pregnancy at 9 weeks but many people don’t until nearer 12 weeks.

Medical Stuff

I finally have my first midwife appointment! It’s on Sunday with the midwife – not really sure what to expect from the appointment but I want to talk about being midwife-led, not Consultant. I also want to ask them about homebirth options but I haven’t decided if we’ll go for that yet – I’d like to though :)

So it’s been an emotional and tiring week but I’m feeling good overall, especially now my boss knows.

How are you feeling with your pregnancy?  Has anyone else had or considered a homebirth?
