Week 10: 30 weeks to go!

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


What is happening to your baby:

  • Your baby weighs about 4 grams.
  • The average length is 27-35mm.
  • Ears are completely formed.
  • Genitals are more clearly defined.
  • Your baby has toes.

What is happening to you:

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

What to do:

  • Read up or speak to your doctor about morning sickness.
  • Start taking photographs of your changing appearance.
