Your pregnancy at 11 weeks:
Baby is Growing:
Your baby is 1 1/2 inches in length. Believe it or not your baby is almost fully formed even tiny tooth buds are appearing and bones are starting to harden. There is a lot of movement that you cannot feel until a month or two when your baby is significantly larger.
How you are changing as your pregnancy moves along:
- More energy
- Less nausea-you may start to enjoy eating again and then gain about a pound week
- Slow digestion which can cause constipation due to hormonal changes
- Heartburn – hormones again cause a relaxation of the valve between your stomach and esophagus

Pregnancy can be a time of some anxiety, it is therefore good to get in touch with other moms like friends and family members. Your own mom can be a wonderful support if you have a good relationship with her. Sometimes mothers and daughters develop a better relationship during this time.
