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.

Before I even started the process of becoming a surrogate I had it in my mind that this child is not mine or any part of me other than me growing it for them. I am so happy and excited to do this and help a couple start a family!

Okso this is not pregnancy related but this is my daughters first week at a babysitter and today when i came to get her (dad takes her) she was excited to see me but didn't want to go...this made me so happy and feel so much better about my decision...just had to tell y'all

alismom2 - 5 days ago
Hello week 10 i have my first ultrasound Sept 5th finally...i saw my first child at 7 guess it not that late but we can't wait!!!!!

elequin - 5 days ago
Oh no, dec baby that is terrible :( I am pretty sure my bad bout was food poisoning, but now that I'm better I'm still freaking out about catching gastric flu - where I live ppl are dropping like flies with it :/ I even had a student turn up for a lesson last night who had to go and be sick after ten mins... So nervous that I'll catch it. I did my first pump class in nearly 2 weeks yesterday and felt great. Really hoping the morning sickness has moved on for me. Hope you're well soon x

Dec Baby - 5 days ago
elequin...our family has been struck down with the flu, my husband and I haven't had the flu in years! First the kids got high temps and coughing and then it spread to us:( the only difference with me is that I haven't been able to keep anything down...had to go to the dr and get a maxolon shot! So far it's working, thank goodness! I'm also taking panadine fort! I have even more empathy for you now that I'm here throwing up and feeling like I'm gonna die! Glad to hear you're over it, I hope I'll be feeling better's so hard to look after kids when you're sick too:(

Dec Baby - 5 days ago! I think it really takes a special person to be a surrogate! I am way to maternal to ever be one, I know that I would get too attached to the growing baby. I felt my earlier pregnancies at 11 & 12 weeks...they were distinct little wriggles that I felt way down low in my pelvis, over time they got stronger and stronger! I haven't felt the baby this time though:) As for the h/r... I'd guess girl, but I found out that it's a bit of an old wives tale! So it just a bit of fun really! - 9 days ago
Heart rate was 178..not sure if high is boy or girl. I'm actually a surrogate this time around. They did genetic testing and had 4 girl and 2 boy embryos and didn't want to choose so they went with embryo #1 so only the doctors know until the 20 week ultrasound. I think I have felt baby a couple times too, this is my 3rd pregnancy so maybe I can feel it earlier? I don't remember how far I was when I felt my girls for the first time.

Dec Baby - 9 days ago
Heidi7...good luck for monday! How exciting, can't wait to hear all the details:) I have my u/s on the 8th Sept which feels like a life time away! My due date always seems to push back a week after a dating scan. It will be interesting to see if the same thing happens with this pregnancy! all your tips...any safe natural tips for nausea? I seem to die every second or third day and I think it's to do with my hcg spiking...come on week 12!!! awesome you got to see a healthy little bubba! Do you remember the h/r?...lots of girls in IAP have been guessing the sex of baby based on h/r just for fun:) I think it's high h/r for girl and lower h/r for boy...but I'll have to google that one;)

heidi7 - 10 days ago
yay 10 weeks! the nausea seems to have eased a tad bit. hopefully it will continue to lessen! i hope he/she is healthy! ultrasound on monday! - 11 days ago
Hi 1stmom27 glad you are here with us how have you been feeling? - 11 days ago
Lil bean constipation sucks with the gas take some milk and warm it up add a teaspoon of cinnamon and stir it up. If you can't drink warm milk cool it off again. It works great. For constipation eat granola its really high in fiber and keeps you pretty regular. I have the same problem. That activia yogurt one a day will keep you going but it always makes me feel like crap for a few hours before I get to the bathroom - 11 days ago
Its been a few days but how is everyone doing I'm still a little nauseous but it has eased up. I know they say you can't feel the baby move but I hace felt a couple times a full side swoop. Lioe butterflies but stronger anyone else have any feeling of the baby - 12 days ago
10 weeks today! Feeling pretty good! Had an ultrasound Monday and saw the little nugget dancing around.

Dec Baby - 12 days ago
Hi 1stmom27 congratulations! My due date is just a few days after you! I'm pregnant with baby number 9! We have an awesome big family and everyone is pretty excited about another brother or sister:) I cannot wait to get over 1st trimester, I usually start to feel so much better after 12 weeks!

1stmom27 - 15 days ago
Hey ladies, just wanted to introduce myself ... im 32 years old with 2 beautiful children ages 4 and 9 months and due with number 3 on march 13th.. looking forward to getting to know everyone over the next few months :)

lynt - 19 days ago
Is every body excited?

lynt - 19 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 - 19 days ago
Done thanks

2bBlessedw2 - 19 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 - 19 days ago
Could I be added to the Facebook Nicci Ellis

nicciellis - 19 days ago
Brilliant how do I do that?

2bBlessedw2 - 19 days ago
NICCI-Glad baby is okay. You need to join our fb group so it's easier to communicate and post pics.

nicciellis - 19 days ago
Baby fine think I have a kidney infection posting pic

nicciellis - 20 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 - 20 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 - 20 days ago
Question about the Facebook group, can anyone on your friends list see that you joined??

2bBlessedw2 - 20 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 - 20 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 - 20 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 - 20 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 - 20 days ago
NICCI-I hope you are okay. Please update tomorrow with how things go.

2bBlessedw2 - 20 days ago is created. have been added. Marie...I friend requested you because I can't add you otherwise.

2bBlessedw2 - 20 days ago

mngirl1281 - 20 days ago
My name is Sondra Grover for Facebook purposes

mngirl1281 - 20 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 - 20 days ago
Oh My Nicci I will be praying for all to be okay!!! Please keep us updated!!!

nicciellis - 20 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 - 20 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 - 20 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 - 20 days ago
How can we do Facebook grp?

2bBlessedw2 - 20 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 - 20 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 - 20 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 - 20 days ago
BEAN-Wow...your due date changed almost a whole week? Were you not sure of your dates of conception?

2bBlessedw2 - 20 days ago
DEC-I saw your blog and commented! I am so happy you are here! Yay!!! I move to 11 weeks today!

2bBlessedw2 - 20 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 - 20 days ago
I must say that a Facebook group would be great! I communicate a LOT on Facebook!

LiLBean5 - 20 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 - 20 days ago
Hi 2b and aussie 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 - 21 days ago
