10 Weeks Pregnant
Welcome to the tenth week of pregnancy? How are you feeling? There's much more that is happening this week.
The development of baby
Baby's brain is developed, though not to full size
The digestive system is practicing
Reflexes are active
Measures 3.5 inches and weighs about fourteen grams
The development of mom
Hormones are now being produced by the placenta
Abdomen may start to become noticeably bigger
What baby is feeling
While baby doesn't realize it, it is practicing for coming out into the
real world. Baby is trying out various digestive functions to see if
everything is working properly.
What mom is feeling
By this time, you're generally feeling better than you have recently.
When the hormones begin to be produced by the placenta, it can mean
relief for moms.
Specific needs for the week
Right now, you will want to focus on getting your calcium (if you
haven't been doing so already). If you don't like milk or cheese, try a
fortified orange juice with calcium.
Specific concerns for the week
You're almost out of the highest risk time of miscarriage, so keep up
the good work. Make sure that you're going to your prenatal visits as
suggested by your doctor.
Special tip for mom
If you're starting to get hungrier, you might want to look into different
kinds of low fat proteins. While a big steak might sound good, you
don't want to eat a lot of fat. Try meatless products that taste similar.
