11 Weeks Pregnant

Future mom

You are burning more calories now than before the pregnancy: metabolic activity increases by 25 % percent. The volume of circulating blood increases as well. While feeling internal heat, drink more liquids and try to sweat heavily.

Your baby

This week marks the end of the embryonic period; your future kid from now on will be called a fetus. Starting from now until the 20th week, the embryo will be growing at an increasing rate. The number of blood vessels in placenta grows to meet the growing need of your baby’s appetite. Ears gradually move away from the neck to where they supposed to be, on sides of the head, which is still disproportionately large (occupy half the size of the body). Internal organs continue to grow inside of this body. Part of intestines still drops down in the umbilical cord are (this problem will be solved the next weeks of development). The intestines start to work in vermicular motion. Certainly, he has got nothing to digest yet, but he will during later periods throw out a great amount of dead cells and amniotic fluids. The size of the head is about half size of the whole body. That is because the baby’s brain is growing rapidly. Other parts of body will make up for it in late months. Baby’s genitals appear this week also.

Fetus Length and weight

Length from crown to sacrum approximately 2, 1654 inches.
Weight – approximately 0, 2469 ounces (7 grams).
