Pregnancy week 10

Pregnancy information at week 10 of being pregnant - Your baby's little heart is pumping blood around the body and can be seen on an ultrasound scan.
You

You are already a quarter of the way through your pregnancy and the time when you are most at risk of miscarriage is coming to an end. You may have your booking visit around this time, when a doctor or midwife will take all your details and family history and discuss what sort of care you would prefer during your pregnancy. Now is the time to begin to think about your antenatal options.

Sickness usually reaches a peak around week nine, but diminishes slowly until week 12, though unfortunately for some women it continues throughout pregnancy. Tiredness is intense and you may feel your eyesight is affected. The increasing levels of progesterone may make your gums bleed.

Your body is retaining more fluid now you're pregnant and the increased fluid in your eyes can cause temporary long or short sightedness. Your contact lenses may feel uncomfortable. You may want to invest in some underwear that supports your new shape.

Your baby

Your baby will now be getting all her nutrients from you. In medical terms your baby has moved from being an embryo to a foetus. Facial features include an evolving profile with a large forehead and button nose. All internal organs are present; the skeleton is complete, but still formed from cartilage. Your baby's heart now pumps blood around her body. The stomach is developing and being connected to her mouth and the cells that will become the brain continue to multiply rapidly.

Your baby's taste buds are developing. There are distinct fingers and toes and the inner ear and eyes are formed, but the eyelids are still sealed. The little heart is pumping blood around the body and can be seen on an ultrasound scan. Wrist and ankle joints begin to develop. Organs continue to grow and more bone and muscle tissue continues to be laid down and the external sex organs have begun to form. Your baby is still less than the length of your little finger.

Thanks Georgia456! I was feeling depressed until i ready your message, i feel exactly the same! He's annoying the hell out of me... Hopefully it is just the hormones for both of us. Good luck!

I'm just over 10 weeks pregnant with my second child. been in hospital 4 times now with bleeding and im totally drained emotionally. has anyone else been through this?
by nikki80 9th Feb 2011, 8:52am
I am in my 10th week of pregnancy and I am finding it really hard just to get out of bed, I am so ill and wish it would stop. I have been in hospital because I cant stop throwing up but hopefully I am coming to the end now. I have been drinking complain for my sickness and it seems to work, it is a supplement for a meal and it gives you all your vitamins you need and you can get it in lots of flavours xxx

Hi everyone! from my last period i am 10wk 5 days and have some reassurance for all those ladies who are worried, if u have seen the heartbeat recently your chance of miscarriage goes down dramatically it's amazing, also not sure if I was just one of the unlucky ones or if anyone else is experiencing this ..i have been having CONSTANT pains, like worse than PERIOD PAINS, for the past week i have been googling it looking for reassurance and couldn't find any .. I went my bep clinic yesterday thinking the worst (had 2 consecutive miscarriages this time last year) I was CONVINCED that they'd tell me the baby hadn't grown from the last time they saw me (8wk 2days) and that there was no heartbeat coz the pains I had were excruciating to say the least!! went in and there it was, little heart pumping away and the baby was active as anything jumping about like a headless chicken :) was the best moment of my life!!! the reason i'm telling use this is coz when I was petrified I was looking for reassurance and couldn't find any anywhere!! .. so there's some for any of u mothers2be who are worried or having cramps. the main thing was that throughout my pregnancy i haven't spotted or had any bleeding which is a very good sign, i think i am just having some problems with my pelvis which may be contributing to the pain, good luck ladies!!!

by fabulous2010 1st Sep 2010, 10:04am
Hi everyone
I am 10 weeks pregnant with my second child. I had 2 scans already (due to my pains) and it was a wonderful reassurance to see little heart beat, but after having a missed miscarriage I still can't get too excited about it. I am too scared to tell people, but I think they've noticed my rapidly growing tummy. So I pray everything will be ok. Good luck to everybody and take lots of care of yourselves x x

Hi - I am 10 weeks pregnant and have my scan tomorow. I am nervous and excited. I had a miscarriage last year at 9weeks, so really anxious and want everything to be fine! I have felt sick and generally pregnant, although for the last few days I have felt better. I dont know if this is a good or bad sign that the sickness has passed abit??!! Does anyone else feel less sick at 10 weeks?
by Druz 12th Aug 2010, 10:04am
Hiya everyone,
im new to all this..found out last week that i was pregnant...took the clear blue test and said 3+ my last period was 19/04/2010 but it wasnt my usually period so my mum reckons i was preg then can anyone help?? got my first midwife app on 17th june..
xxx
by kayleighjane 11th Jun 2010, 5:37pm
i'm 9 weeks tomorrow with my first child.
i'm huge already, and can't even blame it on eating too much, the little ones making me throw up at everything but dry crackers and jacket potatoes.. i had a completely flat stomach already, which is why i find it so odd that everyone is noticing i'm pregnant before i'm ever considering starting to tell people.
has anyone else had anything like this? twins runs in both sides of mine and one side of my partners so that is always a possibility!
by Danni1991 18th May 2010, 5:29pm
Hi im 10week+2days of my pregnancy. i had a previous m/c at 11 weeks so i am worried this time. i had last week too much vomit & tiredness.

Pls tell me is there any worry. Wht i have to do..... i don't want to loose it. pls help me. or give me adivce..... good luck to everyone.........
by lavi81 18th May 2010, 5:05pm

Hi everyone , Im in wk 10 now and scary times feel like im almost on count down day by day to the 'SAFE ZONE' of 12 weeks . After having a missed miscarriage in my last pregnancy im scared to be excited this time .... can anyone else relate to that ????
Its hard because even relatives seem to avoid the subject ..... but trying to be positive , everything going really well my little peanut has a strong heartbeat and if morning sickness is anything to go by i have a constant reminder ha ha.
I want to wish everyone luck and happiness x x

I just wanted to write to any ladies who have experienced unexplained recurrent miscarriages. After my fifth miscarriage, and my consultant (who said I was just unlucky), could give me no reason why this kept happening to me. I was referred to the Specialist Recurrent Miscarriage Unit at St Mary's in London. They pioneer all sorts of research and for three months I had constant blood tests (I felt like Amy Winehouse, with all the needle marks in my arm!).
They repeated tests that my doctor and hospital had done, but they repeated them at different times in my cycle, that the other places had nt done. As a result I was diagnosed with ANTIPHOSPOLLIPID SYNDROME aka Hughes Syndrome aka "Sticky blood syndrome". This causes early recurrent miscarriage; basically for a healthy placenta to form, your blood clots have to reduce in size. If you have this syndrome, they stay the same size - the placenta does nt develop properly and this causes the miscarriage.
It was so fantastic to finally have a reason as to why I kept having the miscarriages and to know that there is a treatment!!!
I am now 10 wks and 4 days pregnant, My last scan 3 days ago showed a healthy heartbeat and a very active fetus, kicking and moving around! I have had daily Clexane injections (Heparin) and a junior Asprin since I found out about my pregnancy. I cant tell you how amasingly supportive St Mary's have been with early reassuring scans and constant advice. I have now "graduated" from this clinic and await my booking in scan with the "normal" mums at the local hospital on Friday.
I am anxious and have terrible morning sickness, but thank god, I feel so blessed and actually beginning to think I will be a mummy in September!!!
by minksymummy 14th May 2010, 4:10pm
Hi All,

I will be 10weeks tomorrow. this is my second pregnancy, and yes, a totally agree with LJ13. You do sow sooner in your second pregnancy as your muscles have already "stretched" . i have morning sickness now but did not have it with my First pregnanacy. My Dr gave me something for the nausea. Congratulations to all!!!! :-)
by Nephilim 14th May 2010, 4:04pm
Hi Im in week 10 of my pregnancy although im actually 9 weeks 1 day if that makes sense. This is my second pregnancy but not had many symptoms except my breast feeling heavier but that has stopped now. Also cant stop eating, really tired and got a bit of a bump already (that could be from all the eating tho lol) i think you do show sooner with your secong though. A quick note to hannahandbump dont worry if you've not had morning sickness as i wasn't sick once with my first (9 yrs ago) and haven't had any sickness this time either, it could still happen but i doubt it. Maybe we are just lucky, i bet ther are plenty of people who would gladly switch places with us although you and me both would probably like to have some sickness just so that we could actually feel pregnant. Well 20 days until my scan so that will put my mind at rest if nothing else. Just relax and you will be feeling pregnant soon enough. Congratulations to everyone x LJ
by LJ13 27th Jan 2010, 9:27am
Hi I'm 10 weeks today, had a previous m/c at 11 weeks so getting a little anxious. Have had morning sickness which is a little better this week - didn't get that last time and had an early scan due to slight bleeding at week 7 - heartbeat was strong. Mixed feelings this week. Good luck to everyone.
by sazzle80 15th Jan 2010, 4:23pm

by MummyDewal 13th Jan 2010, 11:47am

by daisy2009 11th Jan 2010, 3:13pm

by hannahandbump 5th Jan 2010, 3:51pm
DITZYLOU i know in a way what you are going through. this is my 2nd pregnancy, my first ended with a stillbirth at 31 weeks. i named him Bailey. that was last year. i thought i was ready but i too am terrified. its gotten so bad that i have started staying home all day everyday, and like you i keep popping to the toilet and expecting the worst. im scared to move incase something happens. my relationship has hit rock bottom, as my partner does not feel ready to go through all of this again. i want this baby more then anything but i dont want to get excited incase it ends up in heartache again. i have spoken to a few people that has lost a baby and gone on to have a healhy baby at the end of it. im sure both of us will be fine this time round, good luck to everyone.

Hi ditzylou, I have been through five miscarrages and i also had my stil born little boy, called charlie.. I have however now got a beautiful little girl who is sixteen months. Dont give up hope Some times it is just not ment to be,.I know how painful it is and really it does not get better you just learn to live with it. And that is all we can hope for. However when amiee arrived safe and sound it seemed like we had gone ful circle. However today i went in for a d and c after a mmc. So its happening all over Again. All i can suggest is taking the folic acid was all i did differently with amiee... X i hope it happens well enough for you soon.Thinking of you. xxxx

by roobaby 30th Nov 2009, 10:09am
hi all, im new to this chat business.
I am just 10weeks pregnant, this is my fourth pregnancy. I had a missed miscarriage at 10wks & had to have a d&c. I became pregnant again an lost this baby at 6wks. I then just recently became pregnant with identical twin boys, everything was going ok apart from horrendous sickness & tiredness all the way through. I went into labour at 20wks + 4 days, an lost both of them, i named them Jack & Charlie. This experiance absoloutly heartbreaking and am still grieving for my boys. My partner and i planned this pregnancy as we both agreed its what we wanted & that i felt strong enough emotionally to do this. I thought wrong and my emotions are being tested more than i thought im finding it so difficult. I've turned into a paranoid insomniac, always going to the toilet an checking, not leting myself get excited, feeling terribly guilty about the boys, but also sooo wanting to feel that exciting happy feeling. Im keeping my fingers crossed so tight. Has anyone else been through something similar and gone on to have a successful pregnancy?.
Thanks
Best wishes to all xx
by ditzylou 9th Nov 2009, 10:18am
Hi,
We have had an ultrasound today - at this stage - week 9 plus 2 days but the ultrasound results show up as though we are at week five plus 2 days. Can anyone offer advice or comments, or been through a similar experience? Is my wife about to miscarry? Or is there a possibility that everything is going to be OK?
Thanks.
by FirstTimer 22nd Oct 2009, 9:18am
Hi ,i too am also 10 weeks pregnant. i was pregnant at the beginning of this year and went to my first scan at 13 weeks thinking everything was fine but unfortunatley no heart beat was found and i was told i miscarried at 10 weeks :( it was hard as i had no signs from my body to tell me this has happened and im worried this could happen again. iv asked for an earlier scan but im still so anxious about whether im still pregnant as i still dont have many signs of being pregnant. I am very interested in getting a sonar monitor to put my mind at rest more but dont know where i could buy one. any ideas where the best places to get them from are?
by sarah3200 22nd Sep 2009, 10:09am
Hi im 10 wks...after telling my partner of 10yrs 2 weeks ago that we are expecting I feel really down and lonely. Although everyone else who I have informed even our 8 yo daughter are all happy and excited as I am, I'm not egtting the support that I need from the 1 person I love the most. I am constantly complaining of feeling sick, and also explained to him that stress will not help, he is carrying on as nothing is happening. On Monday I viisited the midwife for the 1st time but he never asked how I got on, I am also expecting my fist scan date to come through any time soon and have a feeling that i will have to attend to it alone. My 1st pregnancy wasn't very enjoyable as he was the same then but I was hoping this time was different..With all the mixed emotions I need any advice or to know that in some circumstances that this is normal for some men...mummybaxter it is comforting what you said about having company 24/7
by ejay78 21st Sep 2009, 9:16am
hi mummybaxter i had 2 mis misscarriages between my two children brennan is 10 now and rianna is 3 i am now 10 weeks pregnant and i feel sick all the time its so horrible I am also giving my partner another chance after we split up last year cos he had a fling with a young girl i hope all goes well for u and all the other mummies to be i have not got a scan till oct 16 i will be over 13 weeks preg by then
by hunee301280 19th Sep 2009, 5:23pm
i have lost two babies at 9/10 weeks twice this year wat is the possible cause
by upe 12th Sep 2009, 7:51pm
Wow this is really freaky..
To Mummybaxter, Your post could also be submitted by me too! I know that sounds a bit weird but. I also am 10 weeks pregnant, have all the same worries as you due to a past miscarriage and even more freaky.. My scan is booked for Tues 22nd Sept!. I cant wait to see my baby. The only thing that isn't the same is that my fella is behaving himself, up to now. But without sounding sex-est or whatever, most men are the same. We have all been there before love and I genuinely hope you two an sort things out :)
I found myself talking to my belly the other day too, outside in the garden. Id gone out there because everything my boyfriend said wound me up to the point where I was either going to scream or ball my eyes out. Talking to your bump really helps doesn't it? All the best.
by xoxokayoxox 12th Sep 2009, 7:50pm
Hey,

I am 10 weeks pregnant this week and am really excited. My partner has been a little bit naughty on the internet with other women but we are trying to work things out cause we love each other.

The last few weeks I have been really down about the pregnancy due to the many symptoms: Backache, morning sickness (which actually lasts from waking to sleeping), constant toilet breaks, painful breasts, stomuch cramps, mood swings and crying! But something really good happened yesterday - I was laying on my bed (Ive thrown my partner into the spare room!) and was really upset about what he had done, my constant symptoms and generally felt miserable, tearful and sorry for myself when I suddenly realised that I wasnt on my own and I actually have a baby growing in me who is keeping me company 24/7! I know this will sound completely nuts but I have actually started talking to it and it is so comforting.

My scan is also on 22nd September and I am dead excited about seeing my little baby. I have suffered from a miscarriage before and I have been really worried however now im in the 10th week I know I only have 2 weeks left until the 2nd trimester and have stopped worrying and started enjoying what's happening inside me.
by mummybaxter 11th Sep 2009, 3:34pm
Hi I'm 91/2 wks pregnant or maybe 10.5 depending on which due date calendar you use and have just eaten an avocado, anchovy, pickled egg, salt and vinegar crisp sandwich plus 2 pickled onions. My tastes vary daily as some days all I want to have are fruit smoothies and salad. This has just started happening and worried I've pickled the baby!!! lol. Good luck ladies and also feeling shattered with the odd burst of energy. Also know how many of you feel that are still waiting for their scan as seeing is believing. My scan is on the 22nd September which feels like an eternity!
by Cyprusbrummie1 2nd Sep 2009, 10:12am
Hi, im ten weeks pregnant tomorrow. This is my 3rd pregnancy. Ive got morning, afternoon and night sickness. I can only eat bland things but gone mad on chocolate and sweets. Has anyone else had cravings yet? Ive also been feeling so tired. Cant wait for my 12 wk scan on 11th sept
by ray09 28th Aug 2009, 8:23am
Hi, I'm just over 10 weeks pregnant and don't have my scan for another 2 weeks. I have little symptoms and wondered if there's anything I can do to check everything is ok as you get little reassurance until you see for yourself at the scan. I do however suffer from IBS which has become a lot worse and every night end up bloated and uncomfortable.
by lovesleep 26th Aug 2009, 11:01am
Hi Birdmouse!!! Could you tell me the name of that monitor! would love to get one! Thanks
by galushka2000 13th Aug 2009, 6:10pm
Hi, I am 9 1/2 weeks pregnant and sickness seems to be easing, was so bad between weeks 6 and 9. Feeling quite bloated and suffering from trapped wind. I have a private viability scan today because I am too impatient to wait for my dating scan in 3 weeks - we just want to know that all is going to plan. Such a scary, but exciting time and praying everything goes ok later today.
by Joc1977 28th Jul 2009, 12:30pm
Hi, Chevy i feel exactly the same, im hungry about half an hour after eating and i look like im about 5 months gone! Also having the gas problem, much to my partners disgust! ;-) my sickness is getting a bit better but im staring to be funny about what i eat, for example if i bought something a few days before for dinner i just dont want to eat it anymore! Hope everyone is doing ok.
by Megselie 14th Jul 2009, 5:55pm
Feel like I have gained a lot of weight and I am almost on the close of the third trimester (12days more). do you guys feel hungry all the time? also have had A LOT of gas .
by chevy1 6th Jul 2009, 9:01am
I am 11 weeks pregnant, this is my second child and I have morning sickness and I am very moody, I'm going for my scan in a few days so hope fully this should make me feel abit better, I am so emotional aswell, is this normal? I am suposed to feel happy aren't i?
by GinaEB 30th Jun 2009, 12:01pm
I am 10.4 weeks pregnant, with my 1st had a scan at 6wks and 8wks due to beeding, all ok and the slight bleeding i had had now stopped, apart from feeling slightly tierd and having the scans i would not think i was pregnant at all, everyone keeps saying im a lucky one, but i kind of wish i did has some pregnancy symptoms so it felt real......im sure it will once i have a bump!
by babys2009 24th Jun 2009, 9:45am
hi this me reaching my 10th week of pregnancy with my 3rd child. i am so excited still waiting for my dating scan which is another 2 weeks away yet. just want to tell everyone also but my partner is making me wait until our 1st scan as i have had 2 miscarriages previously.
am feeling very very sick with baby number 3 more so than when i was carrying my 2 sons. maybe this time its a girl!!?? also my breasts are very tender and my belly is expanding quite fast too.
just wish the next 2 weeks would hurry up and arrive cos i so want to make sure everything is ok and i can relax a bit more. i am nearly 38 so getting older and more anxious this time around. xx
by kellyf 8th Jun 2009, 9:36am
i went for my 1st scan today which revealed i am 10 weeks but the foetus is really low, just above my pelvic bone is this normal
by sophie1987 21st Apr 2009, 10:13am
Hello jemmajuicy,I know how you feel, I have been feeling exactly the same as you for weeks. It's hard to deal with the guilt when my partner is so happy and I'm screaming and crying that its the worst thing thats ever happened to me! Thankfully now I'm coming to terms with things and feel less irrational. Hope you feel better soon as well, its a big change and I think its ok to resist it at first, i've felt like an evil person because I was the only one not happy but it will go, then you can start to imagine all the nice things, good luck xx
by chemgirlie 20th Apr 2009, 9:29am

I am so excited, keep thinking that when the baby is born it will be the love of my life....and thats what keeps me going! finding the tiredness difficult at work, have quite a high pressured job and am trying to take a step back a bit. looking forward to the first scan, will make it real for me and my b/f! can't wait! good luck to everyone xx
by heatherberry 5th Mar 2009, 9:16am

well im 10 1/2 weeks gone i should bee 11 1/2 weeks but the doctors have put me back a week already !! as if pregnancy wasnt long enough !! im really quite worried i just want my scan to hurry up so i no my baby is ok i seem to have no syptoms now apart from my breasts are still a bit sore and i feel so tired but that might be down to lookin after my other 2 children !! .. i had a scare at 6 weeks i had bad cramps and i was bleedin or tho not much blood but i had an emergency scan and they said all was well but that was nearly 5 weeks ago im prayin everythin is still ok .. i have suffered 4 miscarriges already altho i did go on to have my daughter after them i just carnt seem to enjoy bein pregnant there is a constant worry there all the time ! has any one else suffered miscarriages and are you feelin even more scared now because of it ?? i carnt stand the waitin of not knowin if my baby is ok it just seems to add to the stress !! x

Heya, I'm almost at my ten week mark! I am starting to notice my body changing and its scarey!! This is my second pregnancy as I miscarried at 5 weeks last time. I've almost doubled that so feel much more confident this one will go to plan. Good luck everyone!!

this may be stupid but im just wondering, can you fertilise an egg at two different times of the first two weeks of pregnancy. i dont know why but i think im carrying twins (maybe im just really hoping) and i think that one egg was fertilised the week after my last period & the other the second week after my last period, am i making sense.

Hi
Im ten weeks pregnant tomorrow, my scan is 30th October i will be just over 12 weeks by then, however the doctor requested i have my scan booked between 5th oct to 30th oct. so any time from 9 weeks really. Yes, you will be running for the toilet after the scan, they make you drink loads of water. I cant help youon the gym unfortunetly. I do not go, i get enough exercise where i live now so no need. I do get tired quickly. however my main problem is i feel worst after i eat that i did when i feel hungry. I know my belly is totally full and could not eat another mouthful but i still feel starving.
