10 WEEKS PREGNANT-11TH WEEK OF DEVELOPMENT
Our geekling is the size of a kumquat now. What’s a kumquat?
We are officially 10 weeks pregnant and moving into the 11th week.
-The baby will grow to more than 2 inches long, half of which is his or her head (I hope that’s more proportional by the time I have to push it out!).
-His or her hair follicles are forming, hopefully preparing to turn into beautiful dark brown hair like his or her daddy.
-Fingernail and toenail beds are beginning to develop and next week his or her nails will start to grow.
-The geekling’s body is straightening and his or her torso is lengthening. Hopefully he or she will be long and tall like daddy!
-The baby can do stretches, somersaults and forward rolls (causing all that nausea, I guess).
-We can’t tell if he or she is a he or a she yet, but if it’s a boy his testes are developing and if it’s a girl her overies are growing. Also, he or she has visible nipples. (Weird thought.)
-His or her hands and feet are in front of the body now.
-His or her ears are almost fully developed, nasal passages are open and his or her tongue and palate in the mouth have developed.
-As for me, my nausea should be subsiding soon. Let’s hope so, it just keeps getting worse!
-My fatigue hasn’t yet slowed down, but should in the coming weeks. My body is working a lot harder than it looks, developing the baby and the placenta so that it can support our little fetus.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
