By the time you reach week 10 of pregnancy, the risk for genetic developmental problems (birth defects) in your baby is much less than it's been up to this point. However, your baby is still at risk for problems if exposed to harmful substances, so make sure to maintain your healthy eating habits, and continue to avoid cigarette smoke, alcohol, and excessive caffeine (200 mg or more per day).

These are normal feelings, so try to just concentrate on the positive aspects of your pregnancy.
