pregnancy skin care Week 11

1. Moisturize your belly, hips and thighs daily to prevent itchy, dry skin as it stretches.

2. Avoid hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms, intense hot-weather workouts, super-hot baths, or anything else that could raise your body temperature above 102 degrees.

3. Get a first-trimester screening to help your practitioner decide what tests may be warranted.

4. If it's recommended by your doctor, get tested for chromosomal abnormalities through a nuchal translucency (NT) and chorionic villus sampling (CVS).

5. Listen to the baby's heartbeat with a Doppler at your doctor's appointment, if possible.
