Pregnancy Week 10

Baby Development

The baby finally developed into a fetus in the tenth week. As such, many changes are happening to its body during this time. The baby is currently one and a half-inch in length and can be compared to a prune size. The digestion process starts with digestive juice forming in the stomach and urine by the kidneys. This week, the baby’s body takes a more concrete step by developing bones and cartilage. Though it would take time for this process to complete, the baby has started developing the tiny tooth buds in his mouth. The baby also starts forming small elbows, knees, and ankles. Testosterone also starts producing if the baby is a boy.

Changes in mother

The mother’s body stretches a lot to accommodate the developing fetus. There would be a lot of veins that become more prominent in the belly and breasts area. This stretching can cause some ligaments to stretch and can’t support the growing belly. It causes much pain in that region, and you might feel bloated after meals. You may feel tired most of the time and have occasional headaches and dizziness. Remember to take it slow and get plenty of help from your loved ones. Remember, creating life is hard, hard work.
