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.

Themutterinme - 4 days ago
Unfortunately I just found out it's another M/C for me. With that I'll be drawing away from the site. Hope all goes well with your pregnancies and births.

hi haley - hows you, im also pregnant with my third child and am due on the same day as you, well at the minute i am, i went to the midwife yesterday whose booked me in for a scan but i dont know when as they are really busy around our area. Im just coming slowly out of the sicky feeling, but still really tired and running around after a 14 month old takes it toll. Really looking forward to christmas though and my holiday which is booked for the 12/01/15. All good and extremely happy xxx Happy christmas everyone, not many in here though lol

hayley-france - 7 days ago

summerhope - 10 days ago
Hi Kayan, I've got 2 days left in week 10. My energy is just starting to improve and the sickness seems to be easing a bit. I've told my little boy and he's so excited. I had a loss this time last year at 12 weeks so I was a bit worried about telling him and then disappointing him but he needed to know why mummy was soooo grumpy!! x

kayan86 - 10 days ago
Hi ladies .. 1 day left to move to week 11 , my energy start to return this week but still I had some sickness . this week was orange week ;) Looove it . I told my girls about the new baby , they were so excited . They keep asking me about the date of the birth . Hope all of you doing well

loralb - 17 days ago
ashangel..i have one of those tilted uteruses too. It can make checkups and paps pretty painful so I always tell the dr before any of those things. Delivery has never been an issue though. I guess it moves when we get close to due.

movnadia - 19 days ago
Elleanasmama I added you :)

elleanasmama - 19 days ago
Im hoping to find some ladies to be in my friends network that check in frequently. add me please

movnadia - 19 days ago
Ashangel that is great you got to hear the heartbeat :) I can't wait for my next scan so I can hear it too.

ashangel - 20 days ago
Anyone else have a retroverted or tilted uterus? Have had no problem finding baby on ultrasound. Got my Doppler today knowing it will be extra hard to find due to my uterus but hubby found baby hb was 157 I have no luck finding it and haven't been able to find it again.

movnadia - 20 days ago
Cant believe I am 10 weeks... anyone else showing a lot? I am showing so much people have been asking me if I already know the gender and I am like no.. I am only this far.. lol not having much ms and I hope it will completely go away this time after the first trimester it would be amazing.

loralb - 23 days ago
Hooray for week 10! I am sooo glad to have made it this far. Just a couple more weeks and we should be feeling better and getting into those comfy maternity clothes.

elleanasmama - 25 days ago
I told myself I would relax and enjoy this pregnancy, but I'm just so anxious already. gah

christina76900 - 26 days ago
Hello ladies my doctor change my due date back I'm 10 weeks today anyone else have the problem with feeling so full all the time and not really eating

elleanasmama - 28 days ago
I haven't gained any weight . but unfortunately Im way overweight :-(

sleepymom - 28 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.

Doda - 31 days ago
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 :)

aliciaising - 32 days ago
Im new 10 weeks yeah

happywoman84 - 32 days ago
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 😞

Franchesca78 - 33 days ago
Yeh, I'm from the north west of Ireland, but living un Amsterdam for a very long time now.

Doda - 34 days ago
wohooo week 10 :)

sleepymom - 34 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 - 35 days ago
Franchesca78 lol.. Yeah it's irish lol.. Do u have Irish roots? 😃

Franchesca78 - 36 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 - 36 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 - 37 days ago
Hi, ten weeks now!! Hooray! Happy woman how you feeling?

happywoman84 - 38 days ago
10 weeks today 😇

babytwee - 40 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 - 40 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!!

tabby607 - 41 days ago
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...

tabby607 - 42 days ago

ekstandridge32 - 43 days ago

tabby607 - 45 days ago

tabby607 - 45 days ago
Had a ultrasound today... little baby is moving around... measuring 10 wks 1 day... yippy... a couple days ahead of where I thought I was... heartbeat was 176.... does any one know if that would be a girl or boy... just for fun... - 66 days ago
Babyflump- my daughter apparently shared the news with her whole class hahaha she is 6 she is beyond excited xx - 66 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 - 71 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 - 77 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 - 77 days ago
happy quarter of the way through day for me and my little mini me. What a nice milestone :D x

Preciousgift2 - 82 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?

maryamz - 90 days ago
Klawest2 I really want to join in but is it public or private? I don't want others to know I'm pregnant yet. I am waiting till my first trimester ends.

Hello ladies! This is my first comment here in this pregnancy. I just found out my exact due date. Came back after listening to my baby's heartbeat for the first time. Saw the baby moving and kicking. I am finally getting excited! When are you ladies planning to announce? This is my 2nd pregnancy. I have a 6 year old son :)
