Your pregnancy: 11 weeks

How your baby’s growing:

Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.

She’s already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won’t feel your baby’s acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.

    Is that the size of a fig or fig newton? Are you getting hungry? Notice how the newsletter is referring to your baby as SHE! Can’t wait for my little baby niece to come out.
