11 Weeks Pregnant

Your Baby's Development at Week 11 of Pregnancy

Week 11 of pregnancy marks the end of the embryonic period. From now on, your baby is called a fetus. It also marks the period when your baby is out of the danger zone for the development of most congenital abnormalities.
 
At 11 weeks pregnant, the following fetal developments typically occur:
 
  • The eyelids have fused and will stay that way until week 24
  • The external genitals move outside of the body
  • The hair follicles of the skin are forming
  • Teeth are beginning to form.
     
The head is still almost half the size of the fetus (because the brain is one of the first structures to develop). The ears are still low but will be moving up from the neck to the sides of the head.
