10 Weeks Pregnant
Things are beginning to happen when you’re 10 weeks pregnant. Your baby is now starting to move inside your womb. Don’t worry if you can’t feel anything yet. It’s still too early to feel any movement.
At 10 weeks pregnant, your baby is now just over an inch long. Can you believe that? Even at just an inch, the baby now has most all of its joints, including the shoulders, ankles, writs, elbows, hands, fingers, feet and toes.
Baby weighs in at a whopping 4 grams. Other things that are going on with your baby include genitalia which are starting to differentiate from each other, although it’s also too soon to know if it’s a boy or girl. Spinal nerves are continuing to grow, as well as toenails that are beginning to make an appearance.
Now that you’re 10 weeks pregnant, morning sickness should begin to subside over the next few weeks. This is good news indeed!
You may also feel like you’re showing signs of being pregnant, but it is still a little soon for anyone else to notice a difference and begin asking you about it. What is starting to happen though, is your waistline is beginning to go away.
Due to an increased blood volume in your body, you may notice that your veins are showing, when in the past this never occurred. Don’t worry, it’s normal. This happens quite frequently in the legs and breasts, when you’re 10 weeks pregnant.
If you have seen your doctor lately then you should have now been able to hear your baby’s heartbeat. What an incredible feeling!
So many wonderful things are now starting to happen, and there is much more in store. Continue getting plenty of rest during your pregnancy, and stay on a healthy diet. Talk to your doctor about any health issues and ask any questions that you have. Congratulations, you’ve made it to being 10 weeks pregnant.
