Your Ultrasound in Week 11
  • Baby-to-be is lying on the back with head on the left side of the image and legs pointing up.

  • Facial bones are again seen as bright white areas in the profile.

Your Baby in Week 11
  • You can start thinking about nurturing your baby's hair now as hair follicles have already started appearing on his/her head. Thinking of hairstyles already, are you not?
  • Moving on to more developmental news, your baby is quite a gymnast right now. He/she is wriggling around quite freely in your belly now.
  • Along with all the effortless, graceful movements he/she is making, they may also be doing hiccups at this stage. Note that their diaphragm is developing at this stage, and they may be swallowing fluid, which leads to hiccups.
  • But you will not be able to feel those hiccups or movements as your baby is still rather tiny, only about an inch and a half. No matter how small he/she is at the moment, be rest assured that your baby is constantly growing week by week.
  • Your baby's head, although still rather large, has now straightened out in proportion to the rest of the body. The bones are hardening inside their miniscule limbs and their hands and feet have now paved the way for fingers and toes.
  • This week also brings in changes in the ears as it appears to have moved closer to where it ultimately should be. That aww-inducing button nose now sports two tiny holes in the form of a nasal passage.

Symptoms You Might Feel in Week 11
  • Feeling warm and flushed : The metabolic activity rate in your body has increased by a significant 20% now and this leads to creating heat inside and raises the temperature of your body. This, combined with the increased flow of blood in your body, are the reasons for such feelings. Stay hydrated always, it is very important in pregnancy.
  • Rapid growth of hair and nails : You may or may not necessarily have noticed these changes but they do happen. Also, this gives us a reason to blame the hormone party happening inside. Remember, pregnancy affects every part of your body in some way.
  • Flatulence and burping : Yes, you may have to face many embarrassing moments, thanks to these symptoms. However, as unappealing as this may seem, we advise you to let it all out. These are just ways to let out all the pent-up gas in your body. Burp away to glory, this is not your fault.

Your Body & Health in Week 11
  • You may start to feel that your lower abdomen is starting to protrude a bit, though people around you may not notice it at all.
  • Well, it is time to embrace your motherhood in all its glory and show the world just how happy you are!
  • This might also be an extremely emotional time for you and your partner, as you may finally see your baby on screen, for the very first time!
  • Have you spoken to your doctor about antenatal classes and their benefits?
  • Now is a good time to get all the information you want and join a class, if you have not already done so.
  • You may also want to speak to your doctor about the upcoming scans and tests.
  • This week may also bring to you something that you have been worried about - yes, stretchmarks!
  • Applying coconut oil over your marks regularly helps to decrease and fade it out.
  • You could also speak to your doctor about using Vitamin E-rich creams/oils on your stomach.
  • Do note that stretchmarks fade away with time, with a proper diet and exercise routine after delivery.
