Baby’s now the size of a lime!
Your fetus is growing by leaps and bounds. And so is his or her head, which is equal in length to the rest of the body (don’t worry — all fetuses are top-heavy). On the crown of that large head (and over the rest of the body), hair follicles are forming. Your fetus also has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through it. But fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds, and nail beds are forming — setting up a significantly more attractive future.
Happy 11 week birthday Baby Z! Mommy and Daddy can’t wait to see you again on the ultrasound in another week! We hope you are still happily snuggled in Mommy’s belly growing happy little fingers and toes. And don’t worry about having a big head (literally). Mommy and Daddy will let you in on a little secret: both of us have abnormally large heads (sorry, kiddo, big heads run in the fam), but we think having large noggins just means that we also have…big brains! Having a big head just means that you’ll be that much smarter. Plus there will be more surface area for lots more kisses!
Big head or not, you will always be loved just as you are.
Mom and Dad
