Our Second: Week 11

5 Oct

We get updates from http://www.pregnancy.org

Quite a cool way to be kept up to date, and very eye opening. I mean, gosh, so much happening even at 11 weeks:

  • Nearly all structures and organs are formed and beginning to function.
  • Fingers and toes have separated – Take a glimpse at how incredibly precious your child’s tiny feet are at this point.
  • Hair and nails begin to grow
  • The genitals begin to take on the proper gender characteristics – It will be just a few more weeks before your ultrasound [2] can show if you are having a boy or a girl! Have you been dreaming of pink or blue?
  • Amniotic fluid begins to accumulate as the kidneys begin to function – This fluid, consisting primarily of water, helps provide a cushion for your baby while she’s nestled within your womb.
  • The muscles in the intestinal walls begin to practice contractions that digest food.
  • Your baby is about 1.61 inches (4.1 cm) long and weighs 0.25 ounce (7gm).
