11 Weeks

I'm still feeling hung-over but am hopeful that it will go away in the next few weeks. I did something to my right knee, I'm not sure what's going on. If it doesn't get better soon I'll have to see a doctor. My belly keeps growing. I can't wear any of my regular clothes anymore, only maternity from here on out. I might have gained 2 pounds or so but that's about it.

This week:
  • Nearly all structures and organs are formed and beginning to function.
  • Fingers and toes have separated
  • Hair and nails begin to grow
  • The genitals begin to take on the proper gender characteristics
  • Amniotic fluid begins to accumulate as the kidneys begin to function
  • The muscles in the intestinal walls begin to practice contractions that digest food.
  • Your baby is about 1.61 inches (4.1 cm) long and weighs 0.25 ounce (7gm).
