Pregnancy - Week 11

Email Print

This week things start to feel really "real" because, yes, you can now hear your baby's heartbeat with a professional Doppler! Her body is now covered by a thin, transparent layer of skin. The brain is the fastest developing part of the baby's body, so the head measures more than half of the whole body size (around 5 cm).

The foetus can now swallow amniotic fluid, process it inside his developing digestive system and urinate it.

Time to dream about that nursery. What her crib is going to look like. The colourful curtains and coordinated bedding.

Start browsing some of the major UK baby furniture retailers and see if there is anything you like in their vast range of nursery equipment. After all, if you enjoy shopping, having a baby is finding paradise in more than one ways!
