Pregnancy Week 11 – To Pee or Not To Pee?

How much can you possibly pee? It seems like I changed my residence to… the bathroom. I remember driving once and stopping at a really small and scary gas station where I asked if I could use the bathroom. The shop attendant told me that it was for staff only and I couldn’t, to which I shouted out: “I’m pregnant and I have to!!!”. I guess he was aware I would have done it in front of the gas station door so  he then handed me the key to the facilities.

What else is happening this week?

  • Baby’s crown to rump length is 2.5-3.0 cm or 1.2 inches. Baby weighs about 3-5 grams or 0.25 ounces.
  • All organ system and external structures are present now.
  • Baby’s head is almost half o fits size.
  • Baby’s face is well formed.
  • The eyelids are sealed shut and will remain this way until the 26th week.
  • Within the amniotic sac, the baby is becoming very active, kicking and squirming. You cannot feel any movement yet.
  • The placenta will get larger as pregnancy progresses. In addition to allowing food and wastes to circulate, the placenta helps prevent harmful microorganisms  and substances from reaching the baby.
  • The ovaries or tests are beginning to develop.
  • Baby’s ear has started to move into its final position.
  • The neck lengthened, allowing the baby to nod and shake its head from side to side.
  • The diaphragm is complete, and baby can make breathing movements.
  • Your growing uterus may begin to cause discomfort as ligaments and muscles stretch to make room.
  • Skipping meals because of morning sickness will likely make nausea worse. Eat small meal instead.
  • You might start wearing some maternity clothes now.
  • Pregnant moms require more oxygen. They may feel short of breath.
