Baby at 11 Weeks Pregnant
Your baby’s little tooth buds are starting to form. That’s what they used to call me in high school, Lil’ Tooth Buds (ok not really).
The placenta that feeds the baby is growing rapidly…almost as rapidly as you cover your ears and sing “la la la, not listening!” anytime you hear the word “placenta”.
Baby’s head is getting bigger and bigger, and is currently half the size of his body. Don’t worry. The proportions will (mostly) level off before birth.

On the plus side, your partner’s hair will grow fuller and thicker, thanks to the magic of prenatal vitamins. On the other hand, if she suffers from headaches and migraines, these might start to get worse.
She should really cut back on the coffee right about now. A good way to alternately find energy is to encourage her to eat frequent small meals. Natural, organic foods that are high in fiber are best.
Also make sure she’s staying hydrated; this is the drinking habit you want to encourage this week.
You may wake up with one or more of the 7 dwarfs next to you this week. Grumpy, cranky, gassy and/or sassy.
Tell all of them they’re beautiful.
Pregnancy Tips for Dad at 11 Weeks
Your partner’s body is changing.
Make sure you’re complimenting her, and that she knows she’s attractive.
This won’t likely lead to any horizontal tango-ing. Wait a few weeks and she’ll be ready to rumble again.
Right now she needs you to be involved in the process.
Stay alert. Stay engaged.
It’s a great time for you to take on the bulk of the housework, and don’t half-ass it so she won’t ask you to do it ever again.
If she’ll allow it, start taking weekly photos of her bump. Her bump, her bump, her bump. Her lovely baby bump.
