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.
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.

Hi Ladies! I'm off to week 11 tomorrow but I have a quick Q for you: I've got OBNOXIOUS post nasal drip with this pregnancy. I haven't had it before. I know about netti pots & saline rinses but haven't done it yet- do any of you have any other drug free recommendations that have worked for you in the past?

I haven't gained any weight . but unfortunately Im way overweight :-(
sleepymom - 5 days ago
Not too bad weight wise, hovering around two to four pounds depending on time of day. Thankfully. With my other two I had gained more by this point. With my second I got stretch marks on the inside of my knees((I tend to gain in my legs first-sigh) . I agree tho, maternity clothes are way more comfy. I wear some of them even when I am not pregnant.

How are you ladies doing weight wise? I still fit into all my pants but I think I want to buy a couple maternity pants just because they are so comfy and stretchy :)

Sleepymom- yeah im craving for my super spicy foods but I think I'm on my way to say bye to this nausea cos it's getting down bit by bit from 4x a day to once a day which I'm happy for that 😊
I'm getting my appointment on 2rd of dec wish me luck and for every all the ladies best of luck 😘
Francescha78- cheers Francesca we live in Rathfarnham and its very windy and grey today 😞

Yeh, I'm from the north west of Ireland, but living un Amsterdam for a very long time now.
sleepymom - 11 days ago
happywoman- I know its frustrating when you want something so bad but your body just won't cooperate. At least the small portions work. I am good, had what felt like the worlds longest cold but am feeling much better now. Bit tired and unmotivated tho. trying to force myself to exercise a bit. Does anyone know, are you supposed to do the bloodwork on the same day as your nuchal translucency test?? Anyone else doing the genetic screen?
happywoman84 - 12 days ago
Franchesca78 lol.. Yeah it's irish lol..
Do u have Irish roots? 😃
Franchesca78 - 13 days ago
@happywoman84 saying I'm grand is a peculiarly Irish thing to say. Haven't heard it said in ages (I'm an expat ). It made me smile :)
happywoman84 - 13 days ago
Hi sleepymom, I'm grand.. Trying my best to limit the sickness by having small portion but often, it seems working. Funnily.. When I have tasty n spicy foods ( I'm Asian n hubby is Irishman) I always end up by throwing it 😣
While when I have something plain n simple it stays very good 😁
As Asian, Indonesian I miss the spices.. N craving for Indonesian foods badly.
How r u sleepymom? 😘
sleepymom - 14 days ago
Hi, ten weeks now!! Hooray! Happy woman how you feeling?
babytwee - 17 days ago
Hey there ladies!! I haven't posted much in here as I'm on a few Facebook groups, but wanted to check in and say hi and I hope everyone is doing okay! :) I just had blood drawn this morning for the Verif test. It's a test to check the chromosomes of the baby to see if it has Down Syndrome or any other abnormalities. They can also determine the sex! So anxiously awaiting the results.
honeymoon-surprise - 17 days ago
Week 10 already! I really need to go and get my blood tests done! but with work and 2 kids already not finding any time to get to have them done!!

Anyone else on any other sites? I'm on baby center and let me tell you there are some mean ladies on there... I was on this site when I was pregnant with my DS and never once was attacked or even one mean comment.. even if I had made a comment about not liking being pregnant or wanted a drink.... just examples... has anyone else experienced rude people either on this site or others...

firstname.lastname@example.org - 43 days ago
10 weeks yesterday had loads of bleeding and didn't think it was going to settle down at all but it has! Yay. Xxx
babyflump - 48 days ago
Had an ultrasound today and baby was wriggling about so much! This is baby number 3 for me and my husband and we're over the moon <3 our 4 year old son noticed my belly had got bigger and asked if I had a baby in there, now he's telling everyone! Woops! I'm 10 weeks 5 days today and finding it so hard to keep it secret! Any body else really showing? And is it true the more children you have, the earlier you show? There's no hiding my bump at all!! :-) my 2 year old daughter is so excited - she's baby mad!!
mamaford77 - 54 days ago
I think I'm finally in a place where I am accepting that this pregnancy will end in a baby. I've stayed emotionally guarded until now and tried to plan for best, but expect the worst. I've seen the heartbeat twice now, been sick as a dog and even hospitalized for dehydration. Being Baby #6, I can feel my uterus rising up out of my pubic bone and I finally bought something for the baby! I think that after I pass the 20 week mark, I'll start stocking up on cloth diapers again! I was certain #5 was it, so I got rid of EVERYTHING!
tazzysmumma - 54 days ago
happy quarter of the way through day for me and my little mini me. What a nice milestone :D x
Preciousgift2 - 59 days ago
Finally hit the double digits, I am so happy. Still experiencing the nausea and I wonder when it will end. The taste in the my mouth is bad, but the worst of all is the smell of my two and half years old DS's bath soap. After he's taken a bath I can hardly stand being in the bathroom and can hardly stand him being near me soon after. I don't know what to do because this soap has been good for his skin, he used to get rashes with other products until I tried out this one and its been good for him. What should I do?

Supama, I live 20 min from Nashville. They are getting a Sweetie Pies in Memphis, which has that yummy soul food. I am going to have to check it out. I am sure Cali is pretty just more expensive! I'm 11 weeks today, so close to the second tri!!
supama - 73 days ago
Babylove-my family's in Memphis. I miss going to Nashville and the mountains...the mountains here are so different.
babylove5 - 74 days ago
I have a stuffy nose ever since getting pregnant! We had football all day and it was freezing in TN. Well to me 60 is freezing but we are getting ready for fall and I love it! We are going to the smokey mountains in a few weeks to stay in a cabin and I can't wait. It's beautiful w the leaves changing. I absolutely hated being 9 months pregnant in the summer so this one will be born around Easter before the heat gets here.
sher-baby - 74 days ago
Well its freezing here already in Toronto, Canada and I too really don't care to eat...I just want smoothie. It's after 10pm here and I know o should of eaten something for dinner but nothing sounds appetizing to me! If rather be hungry but when I'm too hungry, that's when I feel sick.
supama - 74 days ago
Ohhh, i wish my sickness would go away already, lol. It's been 103degrees here (So Cali) without any let up, & i cant figure out if it's worse to be 8 mos preggo in this heat or pukey with morning sickness all day long in this heat, arrgggg. Lol.Alllll i want is fruit and smoothies.
sher-baby - 75 days ago
Whoo hoo! Into the double digits today!...hello 10weeks!
