1/4 of the Journey

Today marks the 10th week of my pregnancy. 1/4 of the total 40 week journey.

The baby now enters its fetal period. The average size is approximately 27-35 mm crown to rump length (CRL), or 1.06-1.38 inches. S/he weighs in at 4 grams, or 4 paper clips. Tiny toes have formed. The eyes are largely open, but the eyelids are beginning to fuse, and will stay that way until 25-27 weeks. External genitalia is beginning to differentiate. External ears are formed, as is the upper lip. The biggest accomplishment this week is the disappearance of the tail!

My whole day sickness is still making me fee sick all the time.
Constipation, nausea, fainting spells, hungry but no appetite.
