11th Week Of Pregnancy

Baby development: How is your baby growing in 11th Week Of pregnancy?

Growth accelerates dramatically, with your baby more than doubling in size over the next month.
Fingers and toes lose their webbing and bones begin to harden. Circulatory and urinary systems begin working. And organs start practicing the functions they’ll need to undertake later on. The liver starts producing bile, the pancreas starts producing insulin and muscles in the stomach start contracting to process food. Even your baby is swallowing and sucking in readiness for arrival into the world.

Wow! Did you know…Your baby has nails on its fingers and toes…

Body changes and symptoms during 11th week of pregnancy

As blood flow increases, your veins swell and blue lines, or spider veins, may start to appear, particularly in your breast and leg areas. You may feel lightheaded or dizzy.

Signs and Symptoms of 11th week pregnancy

Dizziness is caused by your expanding circulatory system and an increase in blood flow to cope with pregnancy. Low blood pressure/sugar, heat, hunger and standing up quickly all can make dizziness worse. Sit down somewhere with good ventilation and drink or eat something if you haven’t eaten for a while. But if it’s persistent or accompanied by blurred vision, headaches or palpitations, it could be a symptom of severe anemia, allergy or hyperventilation.

Your to-do list and care during 11th Week of pregnancy:

Make a dental appointment and tell them that you’re pregnant. Hormonal changes in pregnancy can inflame gums and make them more prone to bleeding and decay, and can lead to pregnancy gingivitis, so brush teeth thoroughly, avoid too many acidic foods and drinks and have a calcium-rich diet, including milk and cheese.
