Doctor Tips, Weeks 1-13

Week 11

By week 11, many women are already dealing with wardrobe changes resulting from their pregnancy. More in week 11.

While it can be perfectly normal not to show at this point, most women will notice that their abdomen has started to fill out a bit (and moms who’ve had kids before usually show a bit sooner).
