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.

Hi ladies, just a quick question, can I get the makeup tatoo eyebrows while pregnant?

bonitadiane - 9 days ago
Here's to hoping in a couple days when I enter week 11. We feel fantastic!!! :)

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 9 days ago
Oooh Bonita I like the sound of this MS disappearing once we reach week 11 haha I have been ok since that 1 episode on friday night - i'm taking each hour as it comes as at the moment every hour is different! Haha. I still have 3 & 1/2 wks before I get my first scan - i'm feeling really impatient this time round...trying not to think about it too much but realllllly cant wait for the reassurance that all is as it shud b.... Cant believe how quick these past few weeks have gone - hope the rest fly by like that haha xx.

bonitadiane - 11 days ago
Auuurrgh sorry JoJo. I too have been feeling off since entering week 10. Not impressed with week 10 and hoping week 11 will make this awful feeling Go away.It's not with me all day. It tends to come after lunch and disappear in the evening. Within that time NOTHING is appealing to me and I feel as if everything is sitting on my chest ready to Come up. auuurgh. But I don't puke. I'm praying this is a week 10 thing as they say peak for ms is this week. And praying in couple days as I enter week 11 it's gone. Wishful thinking.

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 11 days ago
Spoke too soon last nite - I failed to keep hold of my tea :os haha naughty baba x

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 12 days ago
Hi week 10. I'm very happy to be here....more so coz for the past 2 days my sickness and cramps have eased off alot...i'm scared to say that incase I jinx myself but fingers crossed its my new way forward. Hope all u ladies r doing well? Jo xx

snooks - 12 days ago
okynot, I have done the Harmony Test this past Monday. Hoping to have some peace of mind nice and early this pregnancy. Good luck to you, too.

okynot - 15 days ago
Hi everyone! I hope all of you are doing well today. I have had a lot of red spotting this past week with cramping, quite a bit of cramping. I am sicker this week than I have been. I hope it is just the peak of MS and it starts to go down soon. I had a quick US today to check the HB and I was so scared I wouldn't see it because of the spotting and cramping I have had. It took a minute before the little flicker appeared and the minute I saw it I started sobbing. I find out either Friday or by Monday the results of the Cell Free DNA test. Any one else getting that test done? I am excited to get some reassurance and I can't wait to find out the sex!

glowingwith2 - 15 days ago
afshanm, I'm so happy it's nothing with the baby. I will keep you in my prayers! :)

bonitadiane - 15 days ago
Hello double digits!!! Yeah! Excited to be here. Even more excited I've been feeling pretty good.

afshanm07 - 16 days ago
IM still hanging in. Went for Dr app for check up brown stuff is still there didn't find anything maybe bacterial vagnoius they thing

glowingwith2 - 16 days ago
Snooks and Afshanm, how are you ladies doing? I'm off to 11 weeks but I've been thinking about you two!

afshanm07 - 18 days ago
Snooks i m with you hope every thing goes fine and god helps the baby stay in place for 9 months.for me the constepation straining caused this i got bettet then it happen again. Been in bed all day crying but god is with me and you all

snooks - 18 days ago
afshanm07, I am with you. Back at emergency last night. Quick, old school ulstrasound showed baby OKAY. Real ultrasound today. Mine is a bleed where the placenta meets the womb. As long as it doesn't continue to pull away, we should be OKay in my case. Brown blood is better than red, so keep positive. Let me know how you are. I'm on couch rest, no lifting.

afshanm07 - 18 days ago
Im sick again. I went to bathroom last night i saw brown stuff coming out. I cried and called dr.

glowingwith2 - 19 days ago
Snooks that is so scary!! Afshanm, I don't know why I thought you only had one! You've got the 3 year spacing down perfectly!! - I'm sooo tired after working all week. My family doesn't need dinner tonight I hope! Just want to sleep!!

KailaStandley - 19 days ago
CRAZY last couple days. Went in for my first US on Wednesday. Dr thought she saw two babies. Went in yesterday and better US confirmed that there is in fact only 1 baby. Then, Dr called today and said that I have really low Progesterone levels and they started me on immediate daily suppositories (yay). Hoping everything will calm down.

blondeabby - 19 days ago
OMG Snooks! Hope everything will calm down for you. How scary. I think I would put myself on bed rest.

afshanm07 - 19 days ago
My other kids are older one is almost 10 second is 7 3rd is boy who is 5 then baby2

snooks - 20 days ago
I've been naucious too, though it comes at the same time as being ravonous. I took a nap then chugged two glasses of milk and had three large slices of roast beef. I ate it like a starving lioness. I have no idea how people can be vegetarian through pregnancy cuz this Momma wants MEAT!

snooks - 20 days ago
Have I ever been dramatic. Went on a 4 day getaway to Las Vegas to get some pool side time as it is so snowy here...ended up in hospital with a hemorage. Placenta tore away from the womb in a small spot and being on blood thinners it sure was scary. We had been walking the strip then, goosh! Quite brown blood, so not 'fresh' flowing. They did an ultrasound and bloodwork. Baby was measuring the correct size and heartrate was 177, so...fingers crossed. What a scare. OB content to wait two weeks til Nuchal Trans Ultrasound. I go in for Harmony Test on Monday, also.

glowingwith2 - 20 days ago
Afshanm, I think you and I are in the same boat... I would have been freaked out too. The cramping particularly. Hopefully all is well today. How old is your other child? My daughter will be 5 by the time baby number two gets here. I'm starting to get sad my time just me and her will come to an end. I think she will make a good big sister though. :)

afshanm07 - 20 days ago
Thanks glowingwith2 thats what the nurse said but im taking colic now and then milk of magnisia hope that helps me i was scard to death yesterday.

blondeabby - 20 days ago
Still feeling crappy :( Now I have a bad headache over my eyes. Threw up for 45 minutes this am:( I give my self 15 minutes sick time in the morning I was late!!! Hate that! I really hope this goes away in a week and a half. I am exhausted :(

glowingwith2 - 21 days ago
Afshanm, I would be worried if it was bright red, but I think brown is old. Stay strong!! We are almost in the clear.

blondeabby - 21 days ago
I just up my water and fruit and veg intake and I am fine. It usually happens when my ms is bad and I just want to eat toast and crackers:(

blondeabby - 21 days ago
Afshanm07-sounds like you are doing everything right:) I am sure the spotting will stop. Feet up and relax. Lately I have been constipated too:( but only 2days. Which is very unusual for me. Ahh pregnancy:)

afshanm07 - 21 days ago
Hey ladies i was really afraid today i cried alot cuz i was constipated for 4 days and when i went today i had urge to push the stool which caused me brown spotting from vaginal and pain there i got scard and cried finally called doc and the nurse said it.s ok the urge pushed some old blood out. And put me on collic and milk of magnisia on top of that i took prunes dried with milk which helped me to go. But the brown stuff is still there.

glowingwith2 - 21 days ago
Okynot- yes it's a hypnobirthing method!! I loved listening to the CD through my last pregnancy. Particularly at the end if would help me sleep and relax when I was big and uncomfortable. When it came to labor, I didn't use the disks at all, I just felt more prepared. I still got an epidural. Hypnobirthing is ok with drugs if needed. ;) I liked that aspect!

glowingwith2 - 21 days ago
Welcome to week 10 ladies!! It was starting to feel like Blondeabby and I were the only ones here! I totally have excessive saliva too. I still haven't gained any weight which is good considering the cravings for cheeseburgers I've been having. I accidentally took someone else's order at Jack in the Box on Monday. I had no shame eating this cheese stacked bacon cheeseburger when all I ordered was a Jumbo Jack. Oopsie! I went home and told my husband I won the cheeseburger lottery at lunch! Hahaha

okynot - 21 days ago
kaila- let us know how the appointment goes! Week 10 is always the peak of MS for me in my pregnancies. I have not been as sick this time around as I have with others but I am feeling it now. It usually lasts till 16-18 weeks for me.

okynot - 21 days ago
Hey- 10 weeks! afsham- I feel like I am getting increased MS and I am still exhausted! I am still peeing 5 times a night too. I always seem to get the (warning gross) thick mucous stuck in my throat all the time which causes me to gag till I throw up. It is soo gross! I am getting the DNA test done this Friday. It will tell me if I have any chromosome issues with the baby and I can find out the sex! It takes 7-10 days to find out the results! How cute is that little jumping baby at the top of the page!lol Glowing- let us know when you use it. I have been tempted to get it but too scared of not finding the HB right away. Is that a hypnobirthing method or something else? I am all about the epidural...because I am too lazy and scared of pain to try anything else.haha blonde- Sometimes I just push through the days like that with my bed in mind at the finish line. I have to tell myself 'just a little bit more' throughout the day. I hate having 0 energy. ohsolovely- Hi! It used to be so busy aroun IAP I don't know what happened to this site? becky- are they keeping a closer eye on you because of your surgery?

KailaStandley - 21 days ago
Woohoo! Made it to week 10. I thought my MS was starting to dwindle but came back in full force yesterday and today. Have my 2nd appointment today and excited that my DH gets to be there to see if we can hear the heartbeat on the doppler.

afshanm07 - 21 days ago
Week 10 today yay. But tired and with nausa and excess salvia

blondeabby - 21 days ago
I am feeling so crappy:( Day 2 of feeling this way:( Still some how I made it to work both days. Can't say I am doing my best work....but I am here. I work with students with special needs. No time to rest or take it easy at work:(

glowingwith2 - 22 days ago
Did some searching and found the Doppler and conductor gel for $23!! I'm ordering one this weekend!! Yay!! Just curious if anyone else has heard or done hypnobirthing??? I did the Marie Mongan Method with my last pregnancy. Although I did require some pain meds, I felt so prepared last delivery. Made it through 10 hours of induced labor without pain meds. I'm hoping this time I won't need any induction or pain meds. I'm going home tonight to scour my iTunes for the disk. If I can't find it, I may buy the book & CD combo. My friend was able to lend me hers last time, but I don't live in Australia anymore.

blondeabby - 22 days ago
That is a great price I would get one for sure! I will keep my eyes open for one. Thanks:)

glowingwith2 - 22 days ago
They have Angel Sounds Doppler for around $50 (this was 5 years ago). They may be cheaper now. I purchased a used one, and made almost all the money back on the resale. It was fun! Once my baby was big enough she would kick at the Doppler. My next appt is April 7th. Hoping for another US. I would love to see how big baby is now. Good luck on your genetic testing. Fingers crossed baby is developing just fine.

blondeabby - 22 days ago
Just when I thought morning sickness was gone....ugg:( I go for another ultrasound for genetic testing in 2 weeks. Fingers crossed everything is ok:) I have never had testing before so I am super scared:( Doppler sounds good! I have never used one. Are they expensive? Since DH won't be able to come to many app'ts it might be nice for him:)

beckym - 22 days ago
mammaramirez and ponyprincess, I hope your morning sickness goes away really soon :)

glowingwith2 - 22 days ago
I feel like my morning sickness and tiredness is getting better. I'm anxious for my next appointment! Do we get another ultrasound this next appt? I can't remember how often we get them. I can't wait to see baby again!! Thinking I may buy another Doppler. I loved being able to lay in bed and listen to the baby. I remember the doc saying not to use them before 12 weeks so I've been putting off ordering one until I was closer. Thinking it might be time to start pricing them!! :)

ohsolovely - 23 days ago
Just wanted to say hello to everyone! I hope as time progress the room becomes more talkative

blondeabby - 23 days ago
I think I am having problems with dairy?? By the evening my stomach is flipping and it hurts so much:( I am going to try to stay a way from milk and cheese and just stick with some yogurt for calcium?? Yesterday I tried it...I had some dairy in lasagna but nothing else not even yogurt and it seemed better? Who knows? I have lots of food allergies so maybe this is yet another:(

Madelmar17 - 24 days ago
