Your pregnancy at 11 weeks

Your baby at 11 weeks

The baby grows quickly and the placenta is rapidly developing – it’ll be fully formed at about 12 weeks. The bones of the face are formed now. The eyelids are closed and will not open for a few months yet. The ear buds developing on the sides of your baby’s head look more like ears as they grow. Your baby’s head makes up one-third of its length, but the body is growing fast – it’s straightening, and the fingers and toes are separating. There are fingernails.

You at 11 weeks

Headaches in pregnancy can be caused by changes in your body. Limiting the amount of caffeine you have in pregnancy can reduce the chances of miscarriage and your baby weighing less than normal when they’re born (low birthweight).
