Week 10: 30 weeks to go!

The good news this week is that morning sickness is nearly a thing of the past.


Welcome back, Mama!

Your baby's progress:

  • Your baby weighs about four grams.
  • His or her average length is 27-35mm.
  • Your baby's ears are completely formed.
  • Your baby's genitals are more clearly defined.
  • Your baby has toes.

Your progress:

  • You may still feel nauseous but the good news is that it should be lessening. Your stomach grows bigger as your bowels become distended.
  • Your breast veins have become more noticeable because the blood supply to the breast increases.

What to do:

  • Start taking photographs of your changing appearance.

Good to know:

  • If morning sickness prevents you from eating breakfast, try dry crackers or nibbling on a slice of lemon when you wake up. Eat a light breakfast of fruit, cereal and yoghurt once you feel better.
