Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week

What My Baby Looks Like in Week 10

Your baby is beginning to look much more baby-like by week ten, as you can see in the photo, and she has now developed into a fetus.

The liver and kidneys are formed and starting to function. Fetal waste product, including toxins and carbon dioxide, continue to be removed via the umbilical cord and routed into the mother's blood stream. Although only about the size an olive (1½ inches) and weighing just a quarter of an ounce, the embryo has developed sufficiently to be termed a fetus. Bones and cartilage are forming all over the body, including the limbs. However, at this stage they are still quite soft and fragile.
