Your Body at Week 10

Lucky for you, the end of the first trimester is in sight! However, you may start to notice this week that your hair is feeling fuller and shinier, due to increased hormones and a result of you taking antenatal vitamins. With extra blood pumping around your body, you may also feel warmer which is completely normal. If you are finding it uncomfortable, try wearing looser clothing and staying hydrated.

Your Baby Week 10

This week, the blood will start circulating between the uterus and foetus which means the placenta will start functioning. Your baby’s fingernails are starting to develop and although they are tiny at this point, you would be able to feel them.
