Even though it may not be obvious to others that you are pregnant, your body is still going through many different changes. Just because you cannot see it, does not mean that it is not there. One of the many things that you might experience during week ten of your pregnancy may deal with your abdomen. You might feel pressure there. This could be due to your growing uterus or to increased blood flow in your body. This pressure could cause you to urinate more frequently.
In addition to frequent urination and the pressure in your lower abdomen, you may experience changes to your eyes. For example, your cornea may appear thicker. You may also experience dry eyes or puffy eyelids. Do not worry though. The changes to your eyes will only be there for a short time. In fact, it should go away after you have given birth to your child.
At ten weeks pregnant, your baby will no longer be considered an embryo. He or she is now a fetus. In addition, at ten weeks pregnant your child is no longer at major risks for birth defects or congenital malformations. Even though he or she is still vulnerable, you can rest a little easier.
Your baby's organ systems have now developed fully as well. Tissues in your child's liver, heart, kidney, and intestines are forming at week ten of your pregnancy. He or she will also be able to swallow and kick. Even if they are kicking now you will not be able to feel it since your baby is not yet strong enough.
His or her teeth buds have now appeared at ten weeks pregnant. In addition, you may notice that your baby's toes and fingers are no longer webbed.
When you are ten weeks pregnant, your baby will be around one and a half to two inches. This is around the size of a strawberry. In addition, he or she will weigh in at around four grams. You may notice that he or she is growing at an exponential rate, considering they may have weighed two grams last week.
