10 Weeks pregnant

Week 10 starts on day 70 and goes up to day 77. It is your eleventh pregnancy week.


Length of your baby: 4.5 centimeter / 1.8 inches
Weight of your baby: 5 grams / 0.2 ozs

Your pregnancy at 10 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum

Pregnancy is certainly a colorful process. As well as any blotchiness or redness you might notice on your face due to hormones and all that extra blood pumping through your body you may also see blue streaks across your abdomen and breasts. Your heart is now pumping blood to your uterus and placenta which means your total bloodflow has increased by approximately 35 percent and these veins  become more visible as they plump up to deal with the extra volume.

As well as those veins you may find your breasts beginning to grow as your milk producing glands are being nourished by estrogen and progesterone, in readiness to breast feed your baby when it arrives.

What's happening with baby

Your baby is now 3 to 4cm long and her tiny bone and joints are devloping nicely. Tiny depressions in the skin will mark where her knees and ankles will grow allowing her to bend and flex her legs and feet.

Her head, now adorned with little nub ears and nose continues to develop to form her own unique features and her gums forming in the growing jawbone already contain tiny teeth.

Baby's skin will be covered in a fine downy hair called lanugo. This is the first hair her follcles will produce and in most cases is shed in the womb before birth. Some babies reatin this hair until after they are born, giving them a peachy feel to their skin.

 

The Practicalities

Now that you are beginning to blossom it might be a good time to find some maternity clothes. Many retailers now have a maternity section and while you may not find everything you want they have a much better selection now than they did when you were the bump. It is important to find clothes you feel comfortable in and this is especially important when finding a new bra. Get something comforble but supportive as your breasts will continue to enlarge and become heavier.

    I am on Day 4 of the 10th week :). This is our rainbow baby. I am nervous, scared, all the emotions and being extremely cautious, even gave up coffee just in case. I am praying everything continues well. So far we have not told his side of the family only my a few on my side. I didn't want the stress of the issues that happen last year when we lost our baby. By the way, I am 46 years old, pregnant naturally. I'm still scared to 100% celebrate the baby. But still celebrate him/her with my husband privately.

    You look absolutely amazing! I am sooo happy to hear you are pregnant naturally. I want a huge family and I would love to conceive in my 40’s. That’s awesome. I hope everything goes smoothly and that this baby brings you joy, happiness and everything under the rainbow 😍

    I am so frustrated right now!!! Due to having to rely on the va to be seen bc for some reason the health insurance we are paying $1000 for each month won`t cover anything till we pay $3000 of the deductible I am not going to be seen by a doctor until I am in my second trimester!!!! Oh and then at the new year we would have to pay another $3000 before they start covering. Its so so frustrating! I just hope I am doing everything right and things will just be like me last two pregnancies.

    They give a lot of people this test, my doc says it`s just for precautions and all they are doing is measuring the shit or the neck for the baby.
