Week 10...

This was taken from

This week, your baby measures about 1 1/2 inches from top to bottom--about as big as a cocktail shrimp and similar in shape. Tooth buds are forming, bones are growing, and hair is starting to sprout. Her eyelids are fused shut and will remain closed until week 27, but she can hear you now since the inner workings of the ear are complete. Neurons appear at one end of the spinal cord, and the basic divisions of the brain are present. She can also bend her arms at the elbows and has distinct fingers. Genitals continue to form, but your doctor would not be able to determine the sex yet, even by sonogram.

I love these weekly updates. How cool to see how we are definitely "fearfully and wonderfully made." I will pray for your energy levels to increase and your tummy aches to decrease. It's hard work growing a baby!! Bless you, my friend :o)
