Born & Birth stories





At this point of your pregnancy, the crown-to-rump length of your developing baby is 1.25 to 1.68 inches. It is now easier to tell how much the baby weighs since he is beginning to put on some weight. Your baby weighs approximately 5 grams and is the size of a small plum! The baby has grown an incredible amount during these past few weeks, but you still are not showing too much yet.

Fetus in pregnancy week 10 Click for a bigger movie of this busy boy


This week is somewhat of a landmark for your developing baby. By now, your babys complete body plan is laid down. Your baby will continue to develop and grow for the remainder of the pregnancy. The fingers and toes have separated and the tail has disappeared now. Your baby has taste and tooth buds at this point, which will continue to develop. The brain will continue to grow at an amazing rate and nearly a quarter of a million new neurons are produced every minute! The embryonic heart is completely developed. External genitalia are not apparent until next week, but the testes in baby boys will already be producing testosterone.

Because you have high hormone levels at this time, you may notice an abundance of emotional and physical effects. Most pregnant women find themselves getting distressed easily and have frequent mood swings. Common physical changes include the beginning of real weight gain, potential softening of the gums and slightly swollen thyroid glands. Common emotional changes include feelings of unattractiveness, feelings of inadequacy and concerns about what the future holds. Some women are not excited about their pregnancy at first and question the condition. Moodswings are not uncommon and many pregnancy women tend to get upset easily, cry at the slightest things, feel moody or drift on daydreams.

You may have gained a little weight already. Average weight gain during pregnancy is about 28lbs(13kgs), but most of that is gained in the second and third trimester.

Is every body excited?

lynt - 6 days ago
My doctor told me having a Vaginal delivery was not an option for me. I had two c sections but since my youngest is 6 I thought it would be safe for me to try a normal birth but he said no. I am not fighting him on it because I have two ovarian cysts that have to be removed after the birth so I would have gotten cut anyway.

nicciellis - 7 days ago
Done thanks

2bBlessedw2 - 7 days ago
NICCI-when I search for you name lots of Nicci Ellis's come up. Look for me, and friend me, then I'll add you. Alicia Iandolo Delia

nicciellis - 7 days ago
Could I be added to the Facebook Nicci Ellis

nicciellis - 7 days ago
Brilliant how do I do that?

2bBlessedw2 - 7 days ago
NICCI-Glad baby is okay. You need to join our fb group so it's easier to communicate and post pics.

nicciellis - 7 days ago
Baby fine think I have a kidney infection posting pic

nicciellis - 7 days ago
Thanks ladies , they tested 2 days ago to c if I had uti and I didn't but today my kidney is hurting aswel so maybe water/kidney infection. I could cope with the pain if I knew the baby was fine 😖 I'll post once I've been still got few hours to go

2bBlessedw2 - 7 days ago
AUSSIE-No, I made it secret...not just closed. So ONLY the people in the group can see. TRust me...I'm not ready to make it fb official yet!

aussie-jess - 7 days ago
Question about the Facebook group, can anyone on your friends list see that you joined??

2bBlessedw2 - 7 days ago
How high is your fever AUSSIE? BTW...after 12 long days my daughter is without a fever and back to eating again! Still waiting on final blood results.

2bBlessedw2 - 7 days ago
Yes, I made the group secret so NO ONE can see anything...well except for those that are in the group.

aussie-jess - 7 days ago
Welcome Dec! So glad there is a bunch of awesome women to do this journey with! I am still feeling crappy, my migraine has downgraded to a headache now. But I still have a fever and achey neck. So weird, really want the fever to go, it scares me.

mngirl1281 - 7 days ago
The group 2B created on Facebook is safe and fun. You can see pictures if you'd like and simply hit like which would be nice on this site. If you would like to join the group let us know :) . It's easier to keep up with everyone if you are an avid facebooker

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
NICCI-I hope you are okay. Please update tomorrow with how things go.

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
Ok...group is created. Sondra...you have been added. Marie...I friend requested you because I can't add you otherwise.

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
I think I know how to make a private group. Just send me all your names. I will title it IAP-Feb/March Mommies. Is that good? My name is Alicia Iandolo Delia.

mngirl1281 - 8 days ago
My name is Sondra Grover for Facebook purposes

mngirl1281 - 8 days ago
NICCI- Hope it goes all right. That's how I felt when I had a kidney stone but wasn't pregnant at time but rather 3 months post partum. Best wishes for it to pass and baby is okay :)

LiLBean5 - 8 days ago
Oh My Nicci I will be praying for all to be okay!!! Please keep us updated!!!

nicciellis - 8 days ago
Got an emergency scan tomorrow all yesterday I was in real bad pain bottom of my back which spread around the front an today it's just the same 😭

LiLBean5 - 8 days ago
Hey by the way...what are your names on Facebook?! We can still become friends on there!! Mine is Marie Sprinkle Uher if anyone wants to friend request me!! :) Just make sure when you request me as a friend you let me know if you are from here. I am cautious because my kids are on there with pics and well....I don't want just anyone getting them! I have had problems with that before! Scary crazy!!

LiLBean5 - 8 days ago
2B My youngest is now 20 months. She was 18 months when I got pregnant. I know I have plenty of space in between. I *think* you should be okay for a vbac. My midwives said as long as there is 12 months since the birth of your last child. Most doctors prefer 18 months but some will go with the 12 months. It all depends. I will pray that they will let you!! :) As for the O pains....mine are just more intense. My cervical mucus isn't really more or less... t just doesn't disappear haha. I always know because my tummy usually always gets extremely bloated! Way more than with your normal period. I can't wait to hear how your appt goes and how baby is doing!! As for the Facebook page I don't know how to start one but I do know that when you do you HAVE to make sure you get the privacy settings right or everyone can see everything!!

mngirl1281 - 8 days ago
How can we do Facebook grp?

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
LILBEAN-My first was a vaginal birth but she was only 2 pounds. My son, was my emergency c-sec. He was only 12 months when I got pregnant this year but then I lost the baby in March. Now he is 19 months so I hope that's enough time for my incision on the uterus to have healed. How long has it been since yours? MMMM lasagna sounds so good right now! I know exactly when I conceived because I have horrible O pains! Lots of EWCM too. No mistaking! I can't wait to see baby again on Thursday! Wonder if baby is still measuring right on. Oh, and my emotions are all over the place. I feel crazy some days!

LiLBean5 - 8 days ago
2B I am sure but that is what baby is measuring at so that is what they want to go by because I can't go by my last period. I had an annovulatory cycle the month before I got prenant. I take my basal body temp and do the cervical mucus and check my cervix. I know exactly when I got pregnant. They just won't go by it. :/ Frustrating but eh.

LiLBean5 - 8 days ago
2B I am so sorry to worry you that something was wrong. I had a really rough day with family yesterday. :( My pregnancy hormones didn't help either as I cried all night. Sigh. How many c-sections have you had 2B? I have had 2 vaginal births then 2 c-sections and now am going to try for a vbac again! I am SO excited right now that the rain let up for me to take the girls n I to the store!! I now get to make a craving I am having...LASAGNA with french Bread slathered in butter and a side salad!! I even got to get me some grapes and oatmeal. Any of you have any suggestions for major constipation? I do prunes which help a LOT but I am still back up and my tummy is constantly crampy and gassy! :(

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
BEAN-Wow...your due date changed almost a whole week? Were you not sure of your dates of conception?

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
DEC-I saw your blog and commented! I am so happy you are here! Yay!!! I move to 11 weeks today!

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
LILBEAN-There you are! Don't ever do that again! LOL Glad all is well! I plan to do a vbac too!

LiLBean5 - 8 days ago
I must say that a Facebook group would be great! I communicate a LOT on Facebook!

LiLBean5 - 8 days ago
Hi Everyone!! So sorry I didn't get to post yesterday! Everything is PERFECT and baby is Healthy as ever!! We definitely have 1 in there but they said that I am 11 weeks preggers and my new due date is March 1, 2015!!! WooHoo!!! Our 4 girls were so very excited to see the baby pics! I hung them on our wall for them to see every day haha! They are excited because the midwife said as long as I can have a VBAC they will allow my 2 older girls in the delivery room with my hubby and I! I hope that gets to happen but we will see as time goes on. :)

Dec Baby - 8 days ago
Hi 2b and aussie jess...so awesome to see you girls here!! Congratulations:)) I'm just a few weeks behind you! So happy to share this journey with you all! I have my first OB app. next Mon, I haven't had any early u/s or even heard a heart beat!!...hope he wants to do an u/s but I doubt it, I'm guessing he'll wait till I'm 12 weeks...but you never know!!

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
BEAN-Where are you??????

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
Thought Advil was not safe while pregnant? Or is that only in the second and third trimester? Hope you feel better! I know when I'm going to get a migraine. I get the warning...a visual aura for about 30 minutes (shimmery zig zag pattern that blocks my vision in usually one eye) before it starts. If I don't take medicine within that time...I am screwed and I end up in excruciating pain and I start vomiting. Can last as long as a day. I pray I don't experience too many this time around.

aussie-jess - 8 days ago
My awesome doctor squeezed me in tonight to see him. He said its definitely a migraine and my neck and fever is due to a viral bug. So he said to take 600mg of Advil and to rest. So hoping this migraine goes away soon, my left eye is stinging so bad from it! But the good to come from this is I heard the babies heartbeat! It was 166bmp! Do relieved about that.

mngirl1281 - 8 days ago
K LilBean, how'd it go? My OB physical went good. Baby heart rate is now in mid 160's bpm. Glad that appt is over and done with. Kind of bummed that they changed the mid pregnancy ultrasound from 18-20 to 20-22 weeks. My Dr said the anatomy screen is much better for two weeks more development. So no more ultrasound to see baby's gender till at least Oct 18th

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
ER for you too? I would not worry about the fever as long as you take Tylenol to keep it down. I would be worried about the stiff neck with the headache tho. I get migraines too but don't get a stiff neck along with it. Or a fever. Put your chin to your chest. Is that extremely painful? If so, I think you need to go. Sorry and hope you feel better! Update please. BTW-You are pregnant...you won't wait THAT long. I was called back in 10 minutes when I went in at 5 weeks with severe pain in my side. Was in and out in a total of 3 hours and that was with blood work and u/s. This was when they diagnosed me with that massive cyst that ruptured. Okay...ttyl...good luck!

aussie-jess - 8 days ago
Aaggghrrr... I have a fever, migraine and stiff neck. Healthlink nurse said I should go to emergency. But I hate going there and waiting 4 hours to be seen! I just called and left a message with my doctor. Hoping he calls back soon. It's 6.15pm now. Would you guys be worried about a fever?

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
This is why we need to start thinking about creating a facebbook group so we can bother each other on the regular!!!

2bBlessedw2 - 8 days ago
OKAY BEAN-it's been plenty of time since your appointment. Is all okay?

2bBlessedw2 - 9 days ago
Tomorrow is the day/week I found out my baby passed away in March. Just two days before I was in the ER for spotting but baby was moving all around with a strong HB. I get passed tomorrow, and I will be able to breathe a little better. Can't wait till my u/s on Thursday!!!!

2bBlessedw2 - 9 days ago
LILBEAN-Good luck with your u/s today!

2bBlessedw2 - 9 days ago
Hello Ladies. Thank you about my daughter. We were in the ER for 6 hours Saturday night. They ran every test on her and the only thing that came back a little high were her lymphocytes and Monocytes...indicative of a viral infection. She still gets a fever at night as of yesterday...only 99.8. Still a fever for her tho cuz her normal body temp is 97.2. They sent her blood away to test for EBV (Epstein Barr virus/Mono) and should get those results by the end of the week. It sure is a mystery. Praying for no fever tonight. Today is day 12 of this weird thing!

aussie-jess - 9 days ago
Lilbean, good luck with your ultrasound tomorrow!!! So excited for you to see your little one!! My next one isn't for another 10 days. Super nervous, because I haven't heard the heartbeat for over 2 weeks. My Doppler hasn't arrived yet. Hoping it comes this week!

aussie-jess - 9 days ago
2b- how is your daughter doing???

LiLBean5 - 10 days ago
I am SO excited!!! Tomorrow is my first ultrasound for our little blessing!! I can't wait to see our baby for the first time! I will update you all when I get the chance to! It is at 1:45pm so give me some time haha. :) I hope you are all doing well! Double Digits Baby!!!
