My Body – Pregnancy Week 10

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 10

By week 10, your uterus is the size of a grapefruit. To put that into perspective, just a little over two months ago (before you were pregnant), it was the size of a small pear. You may notice your midsection thickening a little by this week. And though it may not be time for maternity clothes, don't be concerned if your normal wardrobe is beginning to feel a little snug.

If this is not your first pregnancy, you may also notice that your stomach seems to be “showing” a bit earlier, and that’s completely normal. There is no “right” or “wrong” time to start wearing maternity clothes, so go with whatever makes you feel the best.

Not ready for maternity clothes? Look for clothing with elastic waistbands. You may already own some forgiving pants and skirts, but shopping for clothing with elastic in the waist might be just what you need to accommodate your expanding midline. 

You can also try a favorite pregnancy “hack” by fastening any buttoned pants with an elastic hair tie to give yourself a little extra room in the tummy area as you transition into maternity clothing.

    Is anyone else showing at all at 10 weeks? I keep reading about the waistline "thickening a little" and I’m huge already!! But it’s only my belly and my boobs that have gotten bigger- haven’t gained anywhere else…
