Your Body at Week 11

Feeling rather large and in charge this week? You will probably notice you are more bloated than usual. This is caused from the changes in your hormones and that is slowing down your digestive system. If you are finding this uncomfortable, make sure you are eating enough fibre and drinking enough water to help digest everything easier.

Your Baby At Week 11

This week, your baby’s muscular and nervous system are now responding to each other. This means they are able to make facial expressions, stretch and bend in weird and wonderful ways.

Week 11 TODO's

  1. As your bump will start to get bigger every week, it’s now time to start applying lotion over your belly to prevent stretch marks. Coconut oil is a great option for this.
  2. You’ll be nearing your first ultrasound, so it is now time to discuss with your doctor when you should schedule your scans for.
  3. Start thinking about how you are going to announce this exciting news to your family and friends (if you haven’t already)
