So, I wanted to upgrade my MacBook Pro's RAM (The mid-2009 13 inch) to 4GB.

Would this work?
KVR1333D3N9K2/4G
Kingston ValueRAM 4GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory Module - 4GB (2 x 2GB) - 1333MHz DDR3-1333/PC3-10667 - Non-ECC - DDR3 SDRAM - 240-pin DIMM

If not, what would?

Welcome to M-F,

Your MacBook takes 2x 204-pin PC3-8500 (1066 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM.
So according to what you posted, no that particular RAM will not work.
It has 240 Pins, you need 204 Pins.
Like these,
4.0GB PC-8500 DDR3 1066MHz SO-DIMM 204 Pi... (8566D6R3S4GB) at OWC
2.0GB Samsung Original PC-8500 DDR3 1... (M471B5673FH0-CF8) at OWC

The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.
