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.

I go next friday for my first u/s...part of the genetic screening. Here in Canada, that is the only way to get an u/s before 20 weeks so I opt for it. My midwife said I shouldnt be at all concerned that we couldn't find the heartbeat but its still a bit concerning. If i didn;t have an evergrowing belly and boobs and nausea all the time I would be more concerned! I guess the symptoms provide some comfort....

My first pregnancy with my DS, they couldn't find the heartbeat on doppler at 10 weeks either. Thankfully my OB office has an u/s tech right there so they sent me straight over to ease my mind. Everything was fine. All this waiting this time sucks! lol. I already had 2 u/s by this point last time. I have exactly 1 more week!! I should be about 12 weeks at this u/s but we don't do the Down's screening, we always opt out of genetic tests so this u/s is just to see baby and get a definite due date because I am still guessing based on LMP right now.

I really dre32? I thought they would def be able to detect a heart beat by then, that is disappointing! Do you have another in a couple weeks time for down syndrome? I have mine booked for 2 weeks time, hope everything goes well x

tripplets - 4 days ago
I have this insatiable hunger...neaseau subsiding...

dre32 - 4 days ago
had my first midwife appt this morning..bit disappointing because she couldn't find the heartbeat. With my daughter we heard it this early, but this one seems to be unccoperative. Booked my first u/s for next friday so I guess I'm in the same boat Timefor2---waiting to see whats happening in there! I told my mom last week but that's it. I'm hiding from people too! The all day nasuea is subsiding a bit...but then i barfed 6 times last night which was a new experience...ugh. hope everyone is doing well!

Timefor2 - 5 days ago
10w4d and just trying to stay patient waiting on my first ultrasound! Still over a week to wait! We have not told anyone still and it is driving me crazy trying to hide it. I have been avoiding family in fear they will notice my giant bloat belly that I try to cover with baggy shirts. I am also into maternity pants now because regular jeans were just too uncomfortable pushing on my belly. So hard to keep hiding this! I wouldn't mind telling early if we knew wth was going on in there! With my DS we told at like 6 weeks after the first u/s because we at least knew we had 1 baby in there with a heartbeat. This time I know NOTHING so I want to wait and be sure we know how many babies and that things are going good before we say anything. Hurry up July 30th!

cutezilootz02 - 5 days ago
Exciting to reach week 10 every week closer! Hoping the sickness will start slowing down and i can start eating properly again. I think iv lost 3-4 kilos in the last couple weeks! Got my next doc appointment tomorrow so hoping ill be able to book my next ultrasound soon!!!

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 17 days ago
I'm off to week 11 tm! Man oh man I am having such vivid dreams these days I had it with my first as well. But I had this hilarious dream this morning that I was in the drive thru at a Harvey's wanting a poutine, and when I got up to the window I said 'I hope you don't mind, I'll be paying with French fries' lol and they accepted French fries that I pulled out of my wallet to buy more French fries!! You think I want French fries or what?! Lol I was laughing so hard remembering this dream!

cutey24u - 18 days ago
Week 10 finally, 2 more weeks and out of the first trimester! Anyone have less breast tenderness? Mine were very sore and still are just not as much and super firm! Still no nausea unless there is something I don't like the smell of or looks gross. Fatigue is still ridiculous and have a hard time sleeping, starting to get headaches yay! Lol

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 19 days ago
I'm still feeling crummy, I find this time around being my second and having my own home daycare that it's easier to ignore during the week because I have no choice but to be busy and not think about it..but on weekends oh boy I feel it big time

NICOlA2010 - 19 days ago
I wish the store was on my door step or fast food restaurants....

NICOlA2010 - 20 days ago
Hows everyone doing...i have had some nausea past few days, and food adversions, and major cravings...im going crazy..need to buy tons od sweet stuff, i think this is a girl

konepich - 22 days ago
Dating scan must be different from doctor to doctor and the condition we as patients are in. With my first some I had one particularly every other visit because I was considered high risk for my age and based on my miscarriages. With my 2nd son, we had maybe 3. These were done at 8, 16, and 22. With this pregnancy I had one so far at 8wks to confirm the swimmer in me. Also I think its how many the insurance will cover.

NICOlA2010 - 23 days ago
I never was given a dating scan past pregnancies...wonder if its a canada thing..usually they normally do just the 18 to 20 week scan

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 23 days ago
My hubby and I aren't doing the NTscan but I'll be nearly 12 weeks by the time I have my dating ultrasound! I hve herd of some doctors doing only the mid pregnancy scan so I'm happy mine will do a dating one as well !

babykhan - 24 days ago
@chsaamanen@hotmail.com, i had one at 8weeks, and they gave me due date of jan25,2015, the next u/s is at 12weeks(NTscan) and then one at 19 weeks for gender!

NICOlA2010 - 24 days ago
Chssamenen, i may not get u/s till 18 weeks, i never had one with my other too til 18 weeks...i have my first dr apt at 12 wks,the receptionist said may be able to fit ons in for 12 wks

chsaamanen@hotmail.com - 24 days ago
Week 10 today! I'm patiently (well trying to be patient)waiting to have my darn dating ultrasound!!! My doc doesn't do them until 10-12 weeks now, and with my first pregnancy i had it at 8 weeks so this seems like forever,i just want to see that there is actually a baby in there!! I'm still feeling tired, and sick throughout the day..hoping it eases up soon..it did at 13 weeks with my first pregnancy so heres to hoping! Hope everyone else is feeling good. Has anyone else had to wait this long for their dating ultrasound?

babykhan - 25 days ago
@kimberly.giet@gmail.com, yes it is always exciting for new baby arrival! Here is prying we all feel better soon!

kimberly.giet@gmail.com - 25 days ago
Babykhan, that is so great to hear that your nausea is getting better! Maybe it's just around the corner for me as well! Had my first us yd, my healthy little baby was bouncing around joyfully (glad one of us is feeling good, lol). Love being a mommy :-)

babykhan - 25 days ago
its very quiet on here! How is everyone doing? Me nausea is getting better!

RachRiv - 48 days ago
I want to try the gender test too! It seems pretty accurate.

theshackcanhelp@yahoo.com - 48 days ago
I've never heard of the red cabbage gender test. Sounds like fun! I will try it tomorrow. Hope everyone is feeling well :)

laurentyesmomma - 52 days ago
Goingfor4, I have a Doppler too, unfortunately was told not to use it often because there is nothing proving they are actually safe for constant use at home. I hear babies heartbeat a few days ago and felt baby move while doing so, I was amazed...I've felt move a few times since also but I haven't been able to find the heartbeat in a few days it sucks! I'm going to lay off using it till 12 weeks now. I suffered from two miscarriages so I understand the worry and struggle its scary!

laurentyesmomma - 52 days ago
I had morning sickness, and the nausea for about a month, which made it hard to eat, now this past week I've actually been feeling great I'm just finding it extremely hard to eat -.-...were probably going to non stop want to eat come our second trimester lol

GoingFor4 - 52 days ago
Finally went to my first appointment yesterday and was able to hear the heartbeat. It was glorious! Still on track for a Christmas blessing. My baby is measuring one day ahead and was very active. I hope that is a good sign. My next appointment is in four weeks. I bought a doppler yesterday to help me get through the four weeks since my previous loss was a mmc at 11w2d and discovered at 12w so still extremely nervous. Hopefully it'll help instead of make things worse.

lissie**** - 53 days ago
yes food is not something I enjoy anymore. I dread eating. It should get better at some point.

jk85 - 53 days ago
I have the same problem with food and its really irritating, hope we feel better by week 12

laurentyesmomma - 53 days ago
10 weeks and 2 days today I'm starting to feel like there is no way this baby is getting what it needs because this heat is killing me and I'm having trouble eating full meals in a day or I get sick.

nini210 - 53 days ago
Kathy im so sorry hope it gets better for ya hun!

brittplus3 - 54 days ago
Kathy- you poor thing! Glad baby is okay though!

kathy=^.^= - 55 days ago
I thought that one of the best things about pregnancy is no periods. I have been bleeding since April 20 geez I'm tired of it....

jh1983 - 55 days ago
Kathy// that's good news!! Great to hear. I hope everyone is starting to feel better.

lissie**** - 56 days ago
Kathy, seeing baby happy and doing well is best thing :) sorry it didn't shrink more but at least it is shrinking! And it prob will continue to over next couple of months.

kathy=^.^= - 56 days ago
My visit went good my little baby was just dancing around heart rate was 182 my SCH did shrink some but only in width but shrinking any is good news to me :) hope everyone is having a happy healthily pregnancy.

lissie**** - 57 days ago
Oh, good Kathy. I will be thinking of you tomorrow. Hope you get good news :) Good to see your baby and reassure you things are going well.

kathy=^.^= - 57 days ago
Excited to go to the dr tomorrow hoping this SCH has gotten smaller. So done with bleeding. Can't wait to see my baby tomorrow praying that all is good in there

lissie**** - 58 days ago
I tried teh intelligender test that I ordered online for a cheaper price. And the results were ambiguous to me!!! It looked like boy and girl! It was really different than with our previous boy pregnancy test results. Also, I found another ladies results online that were really similar to ours and the company took a look at her pic and said it was a girl result so idk! Maybe girl! It got my DH hopes up a bit and I appreciate that even if it is just for 7 weeks that he is excited ha ha!

brittplus3 - 58 days ago
