So we are quickly approaching 11 weeks pregnant, in 2 days and I cannot believe how time is flying. It seems like yesterday I found out. At the same time, it has already been a long journey to meet this little guy. So 2 weeks left until the 1st trimester is over, for those paying attention October 1st marks the 2nd trimester. I will post more pics then.
I haven't gotten much bigger than I was in the last update picture, my Dr. says this is normal - some women gain alot and then slow down. She said I may not look any bigger again until into the 2nd trimester, or I may hit another growth spurt, you never know.
My mom has been GREAT and send me not only lots of books and baby gear and videos but also raided her own closet for clothes that would fit me in this odd stage of pregnancy when most maternity clothes are too big and most of my clothes are too small.
Fetal development in pregnancy week 11:fetus in third month Maybe you’ve noticed… your baby is a super-duper grower! Your lil' fetus will be gaining a substantial amount of weight this week and has already achieved fruit-size-status comparable to a plum. What's more, your little scientist is already starting to explore their body, focusing most intently on touching their head, and especially their face and mouth. Their mouth in particular will provide them with hours of entertainment. This happens not only because your baby is gaining coordination, and is therefore able to move a hand on command, but also because their palms have gained sensation and can actually “feel” what it touches.They're also developing their swallow reflex this week. And lastly, your baby's smelling and other olfactory senses will begin developing this week, which when combined with the maturing taste buds, will provide your baby with their first experiences of taste and smell.
