If you ever think about going on a trip before having your little fella, when you have reached 11 weeks pregnant, you would have the most suitable time for it.
You are one week away from stepping inside the second-trimester timezone and you are getting better from all of those awful pregnancy-related symptoms.
Maybe the fact that your little prune has grown into a lime when you are 11 weeks pregnant helps to keep you away from your usual morning sickness?
Did you get what I mean? No? Let’s continue.
Fetal development when you are 11 weeks pregnant
Even if you don’t know the sex of your baby just yet if it’s a little girl, then they would start to have ovaries. Pretty cool, right?
Their ears are starting to take on their final shape, their cute nose button is having two nasal passages, they would have a fully formed tongue and palate inside of their mouth.
Don’t even get me started on their nipple. It’s there! Even when you are just 11 weeks pregnant.
Their hands are no longer webbed, they started to have nice-looking hands and feet and hair follicles are starting form over the rest of their body.
You may want to add a nail clipper to your shop list since your baby is starting to develop nail beds for both hands and feet when you are 11 weeks pregnant.
Soon, they would have nail growing, how exciting! They’re starting to have distinct human characteristics already!
When you are 11 weeks pregnant, there are a few movements that your baby has learned while floating in such as forward rolls, somersaults and stretches.
Well, they were bored. What do you expect? Soon, they will start kicking so you better brace yourself.
Get your prenatal tests now
If you haven’t done your nuchal translucency scan (NTS) last week, then better carry it out when you are 11 weeks pregnant.
Just a simple blood test and an ultrasound scan of the baby’s back of the neck should do the trick.
If your doctor suspects some abnormalities in the NTS, they might recommend you some invasive tests to be done in order to be sure.
Don’t worry too much though. Just listen, pay attention to details and understand the benefits and complications of the test.
The rest would be carried out by your doctor. It can be nerve-wracking, but knowing the results would make you feel relieved.
If you understand and execute everything right, you would have the best experience while being 11 weeks pregnant.
