10 Weeks Pregnant – Pregnancy Week by Week
Moodiness is present even in this week! Some women laugh and cry alternately; others start to ask themselves philosophical questions about what kind of mothers they will be. You may be unbearable in this period, you know. But since you are surrounded by the loving ones, everything will be just fine. Do not forget that these changes are temporary and that in a few months you will find yourself in the most beautiful role in the world!
If you could somehow really see your child, you would be surprised how much it looks like a real human! Its fingers and legs, as well as the largest joints – elbows, shoulders, knees, have developed.
The baby “swims” in the amniotic fluid inside the womb, but when you see it in ultrasound, you can not understand that it is moving and that you don’t feel any activity yet. This can make you feel impatient. But when a few weeks more pass, and you feel its first kick, you’ll realize that it was worth waiting. The length of the baby is now about 1 inch, and it weighs only 0.002 pounds.
At the doctor’s
This is the period which is suitable for you to make the first invasive test – biopsy of chorionic wrists. It is a method of obtaining a small baby’s placenta which gives the information on chromosomes of the baby and its gender. You will be delighted to find out would it be a girl or a boy! Or you are of those who like to be surprised?
Tip for this week
Swimming and walking are great choices for the whole period of pregnancy. Try to find the activity which will help you to carry the weight you have already gained. If you practice yoga or some other type of meditation, your voyage through these nine months will be as pleasant as possible. Your baby will enjoy it, too, because having a content mother is the prerequisite for being a happy child.
