At 10 weeks your baby is approximately 1.2 inches long, and weighs approximately .14 ounces(about the size of a kumquat, prune or strawberry).
Your baby has officially graduated this week from embryo to fetus, and with that change are a whole bunch of others happening with development.
Your baby is now swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs – including the kidneys(now creating urine), intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) – are in place and starting to function, though they'll continue to develop throughout your pregnancy. If you could take a peek inside your womb, you'd spot minute details, like tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin. Your baby's limbs can bend now. Your baby is really taking a human shape now. Bones and cartilage are forming and small indentations on the legs are developing into knees and ankles. The arms, complete with elbows, can flex already. The hands are able to flex at the wrist and can meet over their heart, and the feet may be long enough to meet in front of the body. The outline of the spine is clearly visible through translucent skin, and spinal nerves are beginning to stretch out from its spinal cord. Your baby's forehead temporarily bulges with his developing brain and sits very high on his head, which measures half the length of his body.
Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. This information is to give you a general idea of your baby's size.
