How does the baby grow?
The tiny fingers already have fingerprints; veins and internal organs can be clearly seen. This period, the baby’s body is starting to grow fast to keep up with the head’s development. Now, the baby’s head is only one-third of the body size. If the baby is a girl, now she has more than 2 million eggs in her ovary. At this time, the baby is about 7.6cm long and weighs almost 28 grams.
Changes occurring in the mother’s body during the 10th week of pregnancy
This is the last week of the first trimester, and the risk of miscarriage is now much lower than before. Next week marks the beginning of the second trimester, a time of relative comfort when many women feel the early signs of pregnancy such as morning sickness and fatigue have subsided.
In addition, many women notice a substantial increase in libido during this time. The delivery date is still far away, but moms’ breasts may have begun producing colostrum, the highly nutritious fluid that the baby will be fed for the first few days after birth.
