You are on the 11th week of your pregnancy now!

WEEK 11:
Fetal length: 1.61 in.
Fetal weight: 0.25 oz.
This week, the fetus begins to move in response to external stimuli – a loud noise or sudden movements of his mother. He is able, fairly quickly, to change the position of his body, helping himself with the movements of his legs. The fetus in the womb stretches, and his hands and legs can keep the fixed position for several seconds.
The vocal cords are beginning to develop, while the formation of the eyes comes to an end. Since the formation of the eyes is finished, it is now time for the iris of the eye to form – it will define the color of the fetus’ eyes. At 11 weeks, the fetus’ brain is formed; the two hemispheres and the cerebellum (responsible for the coordination of movements) are clearly defined.
A lot of other things start to develop; small joints start to form; there are 32 tooth buds are in place; the fetus is actively developing reflexes like sucking (manifesting movements of the lips) and grasping (movement of the fingers).

  • I’m loading up on protein like a bodybuilder! After all, I am building a body — a whole new one. I’m eating lots of pasteurized dairy, nuts, eggs, and beans.
  • My belly isn’t really stretching yet, but it’s not too early to think about preventing stretch marks. I’m using a vitamin E oil daily.
  • Midwife or obstetrician? I’ve researched the care providers in my town, and I’ve thought about whether I want to stay with my usual provider or find a new one to attend my birth.
  • I’m paying attention to my body and staying comfortable. This means I change positions — I try not to sit or stand for long periods, and I put my feet up when I can.
  • I’ve had my first trimester screen! — it’s between the 11th and 13th week of pregnancy.
  • I’ve started buying maternity clothes. Hey, it’s the best excuse possible for a new wardrobe!
  • I’ve had a heart-to-heart with my partner. We’ve talked about questions and concerns we have about having a child.
