Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week

What My Baby Looks Like in Week 11

Discover your baby's latest fetal developments in week 11. Even though you can't feel it yet, your baby is beginning to kick his growing legs.

At this stage, ovaries in female fetuses (pictured here) contain estrogen receptors which respond to the mothers hormones to help them develop further. Male fetuses begin to make the hormone testosterone. Sexual organs are forming but are not yet distinguishable by ultrasound. Now about the size of a fig, fetal development is in full swing. Arms and legs continue to grow and are able to start bending and moving. The developing fetus is starting to kick. These movements are undetectable by the mother, although they are visible by ultrasound.
