Have you ever wondered what happens to you and baby in Week 11 of pregnancy?

To read week 10, please click here.

Here is a detailed list of week 11 pregnancy facts:

  • The head is almost half the size of the fetus.
  • The eyelids have fused and will stay that way until week 24.
  • The external sex organs are developing.
  • The hair follicles of the skin are forming.
  • The ears are still abnormally low on the sides of the head.
  • The teeth are beginning to form.
  • The fetus now weighs 10 grams and is over 5.5 centimeters long.
  • Any sickness you have had should start to fade away.
  • You will also begin to feel less tired.
  • Due to hormonal changes in the body, you may begin to experience back aches, bleeding gums, cramps in the legs or constipation.
  • All perfectly normal but if concerned, see your doctor.

  • Moving on a few weeks if your baby is lying sideways (and turns back again when turned during examination) you may find you get sciatica from the baby pushing against the nerves at your hips. Physio and swimming or other exercises can help.
