Week 10 of Pregnancy: A Comprehensive Guide

Congratulations on reaching the 10th week of your pregnancy! This is an exciting time as your baby continues to grow and develop rapidly. This week marks the end of the embryonic period and the beginning of the fetal period. Your baby is now officially referred to as a fetus.

Fetal Development at 10 Weeks

  • Size: Your baby is now about the size of a strawberry, measuring approximately 1.25 inches (3.2 centimeters) in length and weighing about 0.14 ounces (4 grams).
  • Appearance: Your baby’s facial features are becoming more defined, with the eyes, nose, and mouth now visible. The arms and legs are also becoming more developed, with fingers and toes starting to form.
  • Organs: All of your baby’s major organs are now present, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver. The heart is beating at a rapid rate of about 150-170 beats per minute.
  • Movement: Your baby is now capable of moving its arms, legs, and head. However, you may not feel these movements yet.

Your Body at 10 Weeks

  • Breasts: Your breasts are likely tender and swollen as they prepare for milk production.
  • Weight gain: You may have gained 1-3 pounds by this week.
