Double Digits! 10 weeks!


This is a comparison of the baby last week and this week! Look how much he's grown!!!

Oh my goodness! 10 weeks! My pregnancy is 1/4 of the way over. That's CRAZY. I feel like it just started.

I've been feeling much better this week. I got up twice last night to pee...that was not fun...but reminds me that everything with the baby is fine! I cannot wait until Monday when we go to hear the heartbeat!

Here we go!

10 weeks:
  • Baby will officially be considered a fetus at the end of this week! (Up until now, he's been an "embryo").
  • Baby is over an inch long! (He could be 3/4 of another inch! That's almost 2 inches long!)

  • Has a hearbeat strong enough to be heard by a doppler

  • Most congenital diseases occur before week 10. I can finally breathe one small sigh of relief. We're not out of the woods, but we're getting close!
  • His muscles are almost completely developed!
  • He will start moving this week! Kicking his arms and legs around! Too bad I can't feel it yet, though!
  • Hair follicles are forming now!
  • ALL of his organs are now formed and are starting to function!!!
  • Fun part, this week, he will either start turning into a HE or a SHE! :) Ovaries and testicles are forming this week!!!

10 week baby with my ring for comparison!

My uterus is now the size of a grapefruit!!

I apologize for the excessive use of exclamation points...I'm a tad excited...sorry! When Judd gets home, I'll have him take a picture with my face in it. lol. I don't want every picture I have to have my head cut off. :) Keep praying for my little baby! Every day that I have with this baby is an answer to a prayer!
