Pregnancy Week Eleven

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

This week the baby is looking more and more like a human baby, growing little fingernails and developing hair follicles. If they have not reached a full two inches in length, they will by now, maybe a little more. If the baby is a girl, her little ovaries are developing too. This means all the eggs she will ever carry with her throughout her life are developing right now too. The hands and feet are formed, right down to ten individual fingers and toes complete with nails. The face is distinct, with a tiny nose, tiny ears, and little fully developed mouth.

By now the morning sickness might be letting up a bit, if not, it will not be long. If morning sickness has about left, you may be tempted to eat more now, because normally when the morning sickness leaves, the food cravings kick in. Remember though, you may get heartburn and gas easier, so be careful when choosing foods. You are eating for two, so choose foods sensibly. You are building and growing another human being, you want to give him or her the absolute best start in life. By eating right, you will also keep from gaining too much weight, which can be an issue later on.

You are on the brink of the honeymoon phase of the pregnancy, the second trimester. You still have the last hurdle, the last couple of weeks of the first trimester. While the pregnancy symptoms may be letting up some by now, you may still be feeling them in full force. Just know that soon you will feel relief, from the morning sickness, from the frequent urination and maybe from some of the other symptoms too. Some women may experience the pregnancy symptoms in full form throughout the entire pregnancy.
