Pregnancy week 10
How's the foetus at ten weeks?
The size of an orange
Your baby weighs about 4g and is between 3 - 3.5cm long from crown to rump (top of head to bottom), your uterus is about the size of an orange and your baby the size of a loquat.
- By now, the ears are completely formed.
- Genitals are more clearly defined.
- Your baby's fingers and toes start to appear.
- Your baby also has her own unique set of fingerprints at this stage.
- Your baby's head is an odd shape and almost half the size of the foetus. Don't panic at the thought of labour yet - by the time she's born it will be more proportionate.
- Your baby is moving a lot more, but you will not be able to feel the movement yet.
What's with my body: Bigger tummy, less nausea
- You may still have morning sickness but the good news is that it should be getting less intense.
- Your stomach grows bigger as your bowels become distended.
- Breast veins have become more noticeable because the blood supply to the breast increases.
