11 weeks pregnant

What's happening this week...

11 weeks pregnant ultrasound

Your baby

Your baby’s fingers and toes are fully formed, and they can now stretch and kick.

In an ultrasound scan , by 12 weeks, the nose, eye sockets and forehead are likely to be visible. Your little one’s ears will nearly be in position too, even though he can’t hear at this point.

As your baby grows this week, the intestines will be moving from the umbilical cord into your baby’s tummy as there will be more room.

By now his neck will have lengthened and will enable the baby to move freely in the amniotic sac.


Pregnant at 11 weeks, you may still feel emotional and may not know what to expect but this is normal at this stage of the pregnancy.

You could be starting to show now, although some women don’t notice anything for another month or so.

As you near the end of the first trimester most of the early pregnancy symptoms should have passed. You may find that your visits to the toilet are less frequent as your uterus moves up your abdominal cavity and relieves pressure on your bladder. The fatigue may also lift as your sleep may be deeper as you begin to relax into your pregnancy. If your nausea hasn’t passed by this stage, don’t worry, every woman is different!

What to think about

You should be looking forward to your dating scan. Seeing your baby in your dating scan may be when your pregnancy becomes a reality for your partner. It’s also near the time when you should start to think about telling your employer as you may have to miss work for this appointment.

Exercise may relieve some stress and help prepare your body for the next few stages. Read more on how to exercise safely during pregnancy.

Having a diagnostic scan may help with any anxiety that you are experiencing. Speak to your midwife or GP about the pros and cons.

Coldsore nightmare

I am nearly 12 weeks pregnant & last week I developed 2 coldsores on my lip. They have now nearly cleared. However, yesterday morning I woke up with yet another coldsore (on a different part of my lip) that's quite large. I do suffer with coldsores but never had them so quickly from one to the other. It's normally months apart that I will get them. Is this just hormone related? Please help because I am so fed up that another one has sprouted!!!! :-(

Havnt received a scan date yet but having loads of symptoms...leaky boobs nausea, chronic back ache and bleeding gums hope it alleviates soon :) I had terribly painful SPD with my last 2 pregnancies so I hope this one is a little easier! This one is our little surprise ;) Is anyone else having problems quenching thirst???

Hi! I'm 11 weeks with my second baby and the symptons have well and truly kicked in. Only had evening sickness with my little boy which fitted around work brilliantly. With this one I have constant nausea and even sipping water or lying down can make me rush to the bathroom to be sick, really hoping the sickness stops soon. I've got my scan on 30th March and my 3 yr old is so excited as he is coming with us and thinks is so funny that the lady is going to put jelly on mummy's tummy. Best luck ladies for healthy, happy pregnancies xx

First baby

I am 10 weeks and 5 days pregnant today with my first baby. Have my first scan on 22nd March, I cannot wait. Was very sick for the first few weeks but seems to have eased and now only sick in the mornings. Very tired and boobs are very sore. I also have a lot of saliva in my mouth which I think is normal? I am also starting to show which makes me wonder if I am having twins?

miracles do happen x

hi, this is my fourth pregnancy and was a complete shock as my youngest is 11 and oldest 21 and i am 40 in a few weeks lol and diabetic, a few days ago i had been for a walk and when i arrived home and started having pains i stood up and felt a gush i shot the loo thinking the worst and i was right lots of bright red blood followed by clots, i bleed all day and was already mourning the loss of our baby, the next afternoon i went to the E.P.A.U for a scan. to our absolute shock there was our little bean kicking and moving about 10 +5 weeks and no sign where blood came from. i could not stop crying with happiness .i hope this gives some hope to any mums out there going through the same x

Had my dating scan today(10

Had my dating scan today(10 weeks 5 days) although i already knew when conception took place. I was very worried as i had two miscarriages at this stage before and have had virtually no symptoms of pregnancy so it was a huge relief to find everything was as planned. this is my fourth baby ,the others are 18, 15 and 6 and I have a 15 month old grandson! Since having my last child I have developed diabetes so everthing is a bit harder this time round and unforunately I won't be able to give birth where I live as we only have a cottage hospital. that means I will be flown off the island to the mainland when the time comes. lots to think about, but I am trying to just relax and enjoy the next wee while.
