Welcome to Week 11

You are now just a week away from completing your first trimester!

Update on Your Body

Your pregnancy hormones and increased blood circulation may lead to increased hair and nail growth and oily skin. Oily skin is likely to invite pimples onto your face. You may put on a little more weight this week, especially around your abdomen.

Update on Your Baby

Your baby’s head is still double the size of its body, but the body is growing rapidly now and will catch up soon. The fingers and toes may have separated, the bones are becoming harder and most of the major organs have formed by this week. Your baby’s heart is now pumping blood to all the major organs. The genitals have formed too.
