04.23.09 double digits already.... 10 weeks: prunes!

you’d think would come up with something better than prunes. although they would be, um, beneficial right now, i can’t stomach them.

This week is somewhat of a landmark for your developing babies. By now, your babies’ complete body plan is laid down. Your babies will continue to develop and grow for the remainder of the pregnancy. The fingers and toes have separated and the tails has disappeared now. Your babies have taste and tooth buds at this point, which will continue to develop. The brain will continue to grow at an amazing rate and nearly a quarter of a million new neurons are produced every minute! The embryonic heart is completely developed. External genitalia are not apparent until next week, but a male’s testes will already be producing testosterone.
