Pregnancy Calendar - Week 11

Your Baby:
Your baby now has well-defined genitals and there are eyelids that have sealed shut. In the next nine weeks, your baby will increase 30 times in weight and almost triple in length. At the moment though, your baby is about 5cm long and weighs 9.5 grams.

The volume of blood flowing through your veins has now increased by between 30%-40%. You may find you need to urinate more frequently. You should be attending your first antenatal visit with the doctor this week and the first-trimester screen can be done at this stage.
