You are now almost at the end of trimester one, which is good news as the second trimester is often seen as easier than the first. Both you and your baby will have undergone many changes during these first 11 weeks, and you’ll have gone from a hoping-to-be-mom to an expecting one. Pregnancy has its ups and downs, so it’s important that you look after yourself (and by default your growing baby) at this time.

How you’ll be feeling at week 11

At week 11 your baby bump may be beginning to show, but don’t worry if your baby bump isn’t showing yet, as this varies from pregnancy to pregnancy. It’s likely that if this is your first pregnancy and you don’t have multi babies inside you, you won’t start showing as quickly.

If your morning sickness if beginning to ease you may notice that you’re feeling hungrier than normal. If this is the case, make sure that you fuel up on healthy snacks that are nutritious to both you and your growing baby. You may find that your cravings are completely different from what you’d normally eat, and your old favourite food is one you that makes you feel queasy. Hormones, senses that are heightened and a need for comfort food are all reasons behind these strange (but normal) pregnancy cravings and aversions.

Your baby at week 11

Your baby is now the size of a lime or a fig, and their body is slowly starting to straighten out. At this point, your baby’s hands and feet, as well as their ears, nose and mouth are becoming more developed. Hair follicles are beginning to form, as well as nail beds and their reproductive organs are developing, however, you won’t be able to tell gender via ultrasound just yet.
