11 Weeks Pregnant – What to Expect Your 11th Week of Pregnancy

What To Expect When You’re Expecting’s Heidi Murkoff describes how your baby is developing at 11 weeks of pregnancy.

Your baby has been pretty busy growing during week 11: testes or ovaries are developing, and so are hands and feet, ears, nasal passages, and a tongue and palate.

Ladies and gentleman, mommies and daddies, in this corner, weighing in at a whopping third of an ounce and standing – or rather laying – two inches long is your baby! She’s caterpillar-size right now, though not quite as fuzzy, and certainly more human in appearance.

Sure, her forehead is still high, and her head is still disproportionately larger than her body, but her facial bones are completely formed, she has an obvious jawline, and most of her soon-to-be-adorable facial features are well-defined. The ears are now sculpted into their seashell shape. Hair follicles are sprouting head to toe. Nipples on the chest are visible.

Fingernail and toenail beds are developing. Her skin is beginning to thicken, and those diminutive digits are no longer webbed like a froglet’s. And behind those little lips, your baby is trying out her new tongue and palate – yawning, swallowing, chewing – prepping for hours of eating and chatting in years to come.

Your little one’s ticker is ticking faster each week, clocking in at about 120 to 160 beats per minute. And while you probably don’t feel anything yet, there’s plenty of nimble action going on in your uterus. Your tiny athlete is practicing somersaults, stretches, and spins – a big workout for one so wee. Lucky for her, your uterine gym is open 24 hours a day.

I'm only 4 weeks and 3 days but I am so beyond excited. I know I have to keep in mind anything can happen still, but I just cant help myself. The overwhelming feeling of being a mom, I just cant get over it. I really hope I can make it through the whole pregnancy with a healthy baby. I'm going to pray everyday, this embryo is already the love of my life.

Is there a reason why you only refer to babies as “her or she”?
