The First Trimester

In this section, we will present information week by week about how your baby is growing, symptoms that you may be experiencing, thoughts to consider and tips for a healthy pregnancy.

Week 11

Welcome to week eleven!

You are close to the end of your first trimester! Your baby is almost fully formed now and although you can’t feel him or her move yet there are tiny kicks, stretching and even hiccups now.

Your baby’s diaphragm is formed, and he/she is the size of a Brussels sprout. You may still be feeling nauseated in the mornings or even all day and the breast tenderness and fatigue are still there for another week or so, maybe longer. You may notice that you are urinating more frequently due to pressure on your bladder and because your uterus is enlarging, you may feel mild uterine cramping.
