    10 weeks

    How far along: 10w
    Weight: me = 126.2
    Baby size: a little over 1″ long and weighs a little under 1/4oz
    Sleep: I’m already waking up nightly to pee once a night. With G this didn’t happen until the first trimester, which is making me wonder if come this third trimester I’ll spend more time sleeping while peeing than in my bed
    Movement: None yet
    Feeling: I had a cold last week. It normally wouldn’t se so bad, except that it came with a crappy caugh. Caughing lead to gaggin and gagging — well it decided to show off my breakfast.
    What I miss: Eating like a normal person. I’ve turned into an extremely finiky eater. One moment I want X, the next the idea of it makes me want to hurl.
    What I am looking forward to: Another baby u/s this week
    Milestone: As of today I’m off the progesterone suppositories. Hellz yeah!
    Weekly Wisdom: Bedtime by 9:30 nightly feels pretty darn good.
    Food cravings: None really
    Fetal development:
    The baby has now completed the most critical portion of its development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in its body rapidly grow and mature.

    It’s swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including its kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) — are in place and starting to function, though they’ll continue to develop throughout my pregnancy.

    If you could take a peek inside the womb, you’d spot minute details, like tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin.

    In other developments: Its limbs can bend now. Its hands are flexed at the wrist and meet over its heart, and its feet may be long enough to meet in front of its body. The outline of its spine is clearly visible through translucent skin, and spinal nerves are beginning to stretch out from its spinal cord. Its forehead temporarily bulges with its developing brain and sits very high on its head, which measures half the length of its body. From crown to rump, he’s about 1 1/4 inches long. In the coming weeks, the baby will again double in size — to nearly 3 inches.
