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.

Thanks Jennish and BabySaunders I went to my ultrasound on Monday and they told me I had miscarried a week or a week and a half earlier :( It has been really hard this week. I had a D&C done on Tuesday and am back at work today:( Hardest part was having to tell my 6 year old. She was so excited to be a big sister. I am trying to stay positive and hope it will happen again for us. I know everything happens for a reason. Good luck with your pregnancies and take care!

Hi Melissa, hope you're doing okay. Just wanted to reassure you I've had a lot of bleeding this pregnancy, I bled for just under a month and when I wiped it would alternate between being heavy & red like a period and light brown spotting. It finally stopped for good a few days ago and all my scans show that baby is fine so just try to take things one day at a time, rest and take care of yourself and ask for a scan if possible to reassure you.

Praying for you! Hopefully it's a subchorionic hemorrhage or something. Nothing serious. Keep us posted!

BabySaunders-Nice to meet you :) That is awesome you can already hear the heart beat! Last time I was on here I didn't post much because there were so many postings and comments but I really liked reading them all and getting to know everyone. I have a Dr. appt today at Maternal Fetal Medicine since I am 36 and considered a high risk pregnancy lol. They have a high tec ultrasound machine and they tell you what genetic test you should have ran. I am really scared because I started bleeding yesterday and it was like a period. Bright red. I laid down the rest of the day and took it easy and it has stopped. But so scared right now. I have one daughter who is 6 1/2 years old and it took us 3 years to get pregnant with her and I haven't been on birth control since and just thought I would never be able to have anymore so we were over the moon when we found out I was pregnant. I will be 11 weeks in 2 days.

Heard the baby's heartbeat on my home doppler! Music to my ears. I really didn't think I'd hear it so early.

Melissa I know! I'll be 10 weeks in 2 days. It makes me sad. I'm still part of a group of moms that met on this site. We're all on facebook. We were all in the same week and there were over 120 of us! Over the years we narrowed it down to 60 super active ones now. Our kids are 5 1/2. Love my ladies from IAP. I'm sad that it's so slow now. What happened? I know a lot are on babycenter or whatever but I can't follow that site for the life of me.

When I was on here 6 and a half years ago there were so many women on here and comments were every day and hundreds of them. This is a ghost town now :( Is there anyone on that is 10 weeks?
MOMIIB - 29 days ago
10 weeks today, yay! 1/4 of the way there, already! Soo excited as this is our rainbow baby, 4th pregnancy but 3rd baby. We are counting down the weeks til we can find out the gender, we have 2 boys already but are completely happy with either sex. My whole family is hoping for a girl, we'll see. Haha!

Please Be Healthy- this is my third and wow do I have a big belly. There's another pregnant teacher at our school who is due a month earlier than I am and she doesn't have even a TINY belly yet. I have been completely round pretty much since I found out! Nothing fits me except my old maternity clothes and yoga pants lol!

This is my second child and I can't believe how much I've popped already. I am going into maternity pants and I didn't go into them until the 5th month last time. No twins either.
