Week 10

The fetus is only about three centimetres long from crown to rump and weighs less than four grams. Even so, it's busily swallowing and kicking. Each day more minute details start to appear, such as fingernails and peach-fuzzy hair. 

The vital organs -- the liver, kidneys, intestines, brain, and 
lungs -- are fully formed and functional, while the head is almost half the length of the entire body. The forehead temporarily bulges and sits high on the head, but later will change into a more human-like feature.

With the help of a doppler, a hand-held soundwave stethoscope, you can hear the fetus's rapid heartbeat -- one expectant mother likened it to the sound of tiny horses galloping. 

Uterus size-  size of a grapefruit

I still have morning sickness which is worse during evening and night. Whatever I eat, I throw out that.
Feel tired most of the time. I might have lost 1 kg of weight. I have to book for week 12 ultrasound and blood test. Hopefully, 2 more weeks of morning sickness only.
