Week 11 First Trimester


Hang in there, mom. Any moment now and you will start feeling better. In the meantime, make sure you are eating nutritiously for you and your baby. During the first trimester, you will gain about a pound or two a month. Others either retain their weight or even lose a few, particularly if they were taken ill by their condition.

Of course, you will gain weight as your pregnancy progresses, but do keep track of your eating habits. An additional 300 to 500 calories a day is all you will need during your pregnancy.

Your Baby

At this time, your baby’s head is half the size of his body. His iris will start to develop as his finger nails make an appearance.

By the end of the week, your baby will be about 2.4 inches in length and 7 grams in weight.
