Your Baby’s Development at Week 10 Pregnancy
At 10 weeks of pregnancy the baby’s internal organs like the kidneys, liver, intestines and brain start functioning on their own.
As you move towards the 11th week of pregnancy, in the next three weeks, the baby’s length also grows rapidly. The baby will also begin to develop features like toenails.
Week 10 Pregnancy Tips and Advice
At 10 weeks of pregnancy if your aches and pains are increasing, consult a pregnancy acupuncture specialist and get yourself a pregnancy acupuncture. It will give you a lot of relief.
If you are above thirty-five and if there had been genetic problems in your family, then it is best to do some tests to find out whether the baby is fine. One such test is the Chronic Villus Sampling to check for chromosomal abnormalities.
Urinary tract infection is a very common bacterial infection during pregnancy. See your doctor if you think you have it because if left untreated it can lead to kidney infection and increase your risk for pre-term labor.
