Weekly Update: 10 Weeks Pregnancy- Goodbye UTI!

After a week of medication, my Urinary Tract Infection was finally cured. My urine was tested again and has the following results:

                                                     Before                                    After

Specific Gravity                             1.040                                     1.010
Reaction (pH)                                10                                          7
RBC                                              2-3                                         1-2
Pus Cells (WBC)                            28-30                                     1-3
Bacteria                                         Few                                         Moderate
Sugar                                             Neg                                         Neg
Albumin                                         Neg                                         Neg

I could not wait to see my OB, so I searched online on how to read the Urinalysis Report and found this:

I'm glad it's within the normal range values. On the following day, I gave the result to my OB and she confirmed that I no longer have the infection. Thank God.

How your baby's growing: (from Baby Center)

Though he's barely the size of a kumquat — a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom — and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, your baby has now completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in his body rapidly grow and mature.
He's swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including his kidneys, 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.
In other developments: Your baby's limbs can bend now. His hands are flexed at the wrist and meet over his heart, and his feet may be long enough to meet in front of his body. The outline of his spine is clearly visible through translucent skin, and spinal nerves are beginning to stretch out from his 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. From crown to rump, he's about 1 1/4 inches long. In the coming weeks, your baby will again double in size — to nearly 3 inches.
