Pregnancy week 11

Signs of pregnancy at week 11 of being pregnant - Your baby's major body organs have formed and the most critical period in development has passed.

You may still be feeling tired and nauseous, but this should pass soon. You may have gained a little weight, about 2-3lb, about 10% of your total weight gain. Changes in hormones may result in mood swings and irritability. You could try yoga or putting your feet up and some camomile tea. You may feel a little dizzy at times due to pregnancy hormones affecting your insulin output.

Your baby

Your baby is growing quickly at the moment. You still cannot tell the gender of your baby from a scan, as the sex organs aren't visible externally yet. Your baby will start to produce testosterone if it's a boy. Your baby's skin, in two layers, is transparent and covered with a fine down. The lungs, although developing, are still very immature.

Your baby can suck and swallow and is able to move freely in the liquid surrounding him or her. The intestines are already able to process the liquid that the baby is swallowing. Your baby would now fit into the palm of your hand. All the major body organs have formed and the most critical period in development has passed. The foetus can kick, punch and arch her body. Your baby can flex her fingers, form a fist and wrinkle her forehead.

Hi there, I'm 11 weeks pregnant today! This is my first pregnancy and I have never felt so ill! I have been sick all the way through and have really gone off of my food, I have had to have so much time off of work through feeling exhausted and sick. In the last week my sickness has gone from every day to every 2 days, so I'm hoping it will soon be over. 12 week scan next Tuesday, very excited :) Good luck everyone x P.s, does any one have a gut feeling about the sex of their baby already? I really really think I'm having a boy!! x

hi there, im new to this forum, i have a question. maybe im being paranoid, but it would really help me. im 11 weeks pregnant with my 4th child, all my other babies where boys, so I had the morning sickness all the time and sore breasts, I work nightshift, 3 nights a week, 10hr shifts, but nothing manual and I can sit whenever I feel tired. I haven't had any morning sickness or any signs at all, I booked myself into a private clinic for a scan, and that went really well, I was 9 weeks and everything with baby was good, could even see him moving, iv got my 12 week scan next week, am i being paranoid because im not gettin any symptoms? as anyone else had this. thanks for reading this and helping me put my mind to rest.

I am exactly 11 weeks pregnant now, I found out when I was 2 weeks and have been on the sick from work because the sickness is sooooo bad. Its nothing like when I was pregnant with my son I was only sick 3 times!! hope it goes away soon. good luck to everyone!! xx
by babymammyagain 18th Oct 2010, 4:35pm
I am now exactly 11 weeks with my 2nd baby. I had no symptoms at all with my daughter but with this one i have felt sick almost constanly. My 1st scan is on 19th oct and cant wait to see my baby. I am worried tho as all of my preganacy symptoms have suddenly stopped. I now feel great, no more sickness or sore breasts, i know i should be happy to start feeling human again but cant help worry that this is a sign that something is wrong.
Has any1 else experienced this. xx

Im am just under 11 weeks with my 4th baby...I suffered terrible nausea in all my pregnancies although in this one I have suffered with other things like headaches and exhaustion.

My tips are to force yourself to eat regularly every hour and a half. And not big meals. I find dry food like brown bread tends to sit better and also things without a strong taste. Everything to me doesnt really taste good anymore and so I just dont want to eat anything but if I let myself get hungry my nausea is a hundred times worse.

Also I find sipping fluids regularly throughout the day rather than gulping them helps : )

I am 11 weeks pregnant today, first baby, been having all day nausea for a few weeks (not good when your at work) but in last few days have been sick 3 times violently as soon as I tryed to eat - nice. So trying these travel band things which seem to be helping quite alot already. So happy im pregnant but can't wait for the sickness, headaches and tiredness to pass. Should be having my first scan in next week or so, very excited. x
by abibatou 25th Nov 2009, 9:34am
Hello. I'm in my 11th week, second baby - I have a 4 year old daughter and currently work full time. With my first pregnancy I was violently sick every day, with this pregnancy I've felt terrible from the day I found out - almost like I have the flu. I'm shattered , have terrible headaches, am very nauseous although hardly ever sick, on the loo all the time to wee, constipated , aches and pains - oh the glamour!! Thank goodness it's so worth it. My bump is also really rather large already. I have lost 5 1bs so far though. My hair is greasy I can't be bothered with anything and I have developed a terrible aversion to the smell of all soaps - shampoo, detergent, washing powder, lotions - I must be soooo attractive right now. It's a good job I don't care!! My husband is being very helpful so I'm just trying to ride it out. If I could start maternity leave now I would! Ah well.... Hopefully I shall rally for Christmas just in time to stuff my face with all the lovely goodies as I have very little appetite at the moment. It's very reassuring to read other people's symptoms as I'm sure we're all looking forward to reaching the magic 12th week. Good luck everyone! x
by teresa77 21st Oct 2009, 9:11am
Hi everyone, I'm 11 weeks on Saturday and am feeling very emotional! Things are difficult with my daughter ( 14) and my partner has started staying back at his flat more because my daughter is finding it hard to adjust to having someone else in the house. My partner has stayed over more often than not for the past year or so and a few months ago it became most nights. My daughter has been saying its because she doesnt like having someone else invading "her" space so we decided it may be helpful if we introded it a bit more gradually again taking our relationship back a step. Of course I have found out about the pregnancy and we really long to be living together soon. I am hoping to see an improvement in my daughter soon but any advice would be welcome. To make things worse we both experience a lot of difficulties with our ex partners. He remains friends with his ex and often meets up for coffee with her and the the children which i find hard. However I do want to say that my daughter is accepting of the baby (unlike my parents who think i am mad and too old at 33!). I also have a son (11) who is really excited about having a little baby around. Big hugs to all xxx

Hi there, im going to be 11 weeks pregnant on Friday and have found that being pregnant isnt quite what I expected. I had been pregnant a few years ago and carried the baby until week 10 until I lost it. My first pregnancy was very straight foraward, no morning sickness or any other pregnancy symptoms. This time however ive got the full works, lol. Last week was the worst, I was so sick that I convinced myself I must have had a bug. I dont mind having any of the symptoms of pregnancy though as its reassuring to know that my baby is busy developing and I know that sickness is often a sign of a good pregnancy. I'm just hoping that by my second trimester ive got all of the unpleasant stuff out of the way and i'll be fortunate enough to be one of the women who blossoms at this time. Regardless of what happens though it'll all be worth it. Our baby is very much wanted and nine months of hard work on my part will be nothing when compared to the life time of happiness we (my husband and I) will share with our beautiful baby.
by JesterJunior 19th Oct 2009, 10:08am
Hi everyone, I am 11 weeks tomorrow... I feel so down, my partner has split up with me as he doesnt trust me and thinks that i have been cheating on him, which i havent. trying to make him believe this is impossible. I have been crying constantly everyday for the last 6 or 7 weeks. this cant be doing my baby any good. Although he still lives in the house with me, things are unbeaable and i dont know what i can do to make things any better. He shows no interest in the fact that i am poregnantnd i have had to go through my sickness and feeling tired by myself. I went for my 1st scan yesterday, which i also had to do alone. I was so close to tears in the ante natal clinic as i was the only one in there by myself. It was made even worse when the midwife asked me if i was by myself. I really cant see things getting any better and I really dont want to be alone. I need him in my life and i love him with all my heart. I have tried to talk to him, but he doesnt listen. he says he wants to move out but i beg him to stay for the sake of our 2 year old daughter who idolises him. I feel like i have the weight of the world on my shoulders....and i really dont know what to do anymore.
by samnmia 12th Oct 2009, 10:02am
Hey everyone, i've just reached my 11 week milestone and am still getting chronic nausea bouts...terrible...but, guess what, for all you mother's that experience nausea, try lemon juice concentrate and mix with ice cold water, works for me, hope it works for you! This is my first baby, and my hubby is more excited than i am, i guess its because i've been feeling horrible most of the time, i'm hoping it will get better!! I'm due for my 12week scan next week and can't wait to see my baba...i cant really eat anything, so i've lost quiet a bit of weight. I'm allergic to eggs and i'm also a bit lactose intolerant, am really worried where my baby is going to get all the nutrients provided by all these food groups...has any of you taken a disliking for chicken???? Use to love it, now i cant stand to look at it.
All the best ladies...
by Gummi 6th Oct 2009, 11:58am
Hey All,

I am justcoming into my 11th week and am feeling so low today. My partner already has a child with another woman who is now pregnant again although with another man. I find that it is really painful when he texts her even though it is to do with his child or more recently to tell her about the pregancy. He wants to tell her that we are expecting although she is now claiming that she is going into labour which is convenient. Im ont sure I really believe her as she is not due until November or at least that is what my partner says. Apparantly htey had a discussion a few months ago where she told him she was due in November. Reason why I am focusing on that is becausemy partner and his ex had sex Late January and despite claims that contraception was used I'm not entirely beliving that (considering she mislead him into having her first child). And it gets worse she also asked him in Feb to leave me and set up home with her and their little one. He obviously told her where to go but netherless it has made me feel so worried about everything. I sometimes feel maybe I shouldnt have been so dumb to believe that we were really happy given the situation however before the pregnancy we were happy.

I am so confused as to what is going on around me and am wishing I could take myself completely out of this confusing mess!! Maybe this is just pregnancy hormones talking but I dont konw. Does anyone else feel this confused and upset about things?
by mummybaxter 6th Oct 2009, 11:51am
hi all, this is my 1st pregnancy and i'm 11weeks and to be quite onest.. i wish the sickness and nausea will stop, and has anyone else feel like your partner doesnt help much?

by monkeehughes 6th Oct 2009, 11:49am
Hi guys hope you are all keeping well.
I am 11+4 have my first scan on Monday and cant wait to see and hear the baby for the first time.
Still havent suffered with and sickness and the nausea seems to be calming down a bit, looking forward to the 2nd trimester boost.
hanzybella - i have felt a few flutters but i put that down to wind :-) as i thought it was far too early to feel baby move yet (this is my 1st pregnancy).
by Carly82 1st Oct 2009, 9:11am

Hopefully, fingers xd all will be ok nxt wk then Ill be thankfull that I havent felt sick!! Im sure all of you who are suffering with morning sickness will hate me for wishing I had it!!!
by keel 9th Sep 2009, 10:38am
I am so glad i found this website! I have been feeling so worried lately that i dont feel pregnant. I think i am around 11 and half weeks and am due for my scan this friday. I did feel sick from about 5 weeks until 9 weeks but now i dont feel anything. I am tired all the time (but thats nothing new for me) and i have a few cramps but nothing else. It has settled my mind knowing that there are other people out there that dont feel pregnant, as all the official websites say that you should by now. Thank you for putting my mind at ease. If anyone has any other words of wisdom to share please do as this is my first baby and its all scary and new to me.
by steph5285 9th Sep 2009, 10:38am

by ItalianTurkbaby 26th Aug 2009, 11:02am
Hi danielle24! I geel exactly the same also 11 week pregnant.. belly not showing at all, lost 4 kilos, but the doctor said I m fine and that I will soon start gaining weight! Also fee very irritated and get head spins, but very rarely. Worst thing is, husband not being supportive, or at least feels that way.. I guess shouldn't expect much of him :( Always thought he be carrying me on his arms all the time, since we wanted a baby so much, but there... Anyway, all is normal, different people get different simptons, but apparently the best pregnancy is when you dont feel any discomfort, or at least until belly gets big, which is about week 18 when it starts showing! So we ve got a long time yet!
by galushka2000 24th Aug 2009, 9:08am
Shelby87.... i am going through exactley the same thing!!! it's draining me!! been admitted to hospital twice but the last week i have not actually been sick though the feeling is still there!!
So glad im not the only one feeling like this!! Hope you are better soon good luck.. :)
by Shelly2000 24th Aug 2009, 9:08am
I'm 11 weeks pregnant and am not showing at all. I look exactly the same as I have for years. My BMI is 17 when it should be 20. I am eating like a horse, but am not putting on any weight. The nurse says it looks fine and has a strong heart beat. People say I'm lucky because they think I wont show, but I want to at least have a small belly. Does anyone else feel the same?
by JeniKelly 19th Aug 2009, 9:06am
Hi i am 22 and this is mine and my husbands first child together, 1 am nearly 11 weeks. we were both told that the chances of concieving were very very slim (like 1%). Well it has happened but i have had nothing but problems, Had to have an emergency scan @ 5 weeks cos i was getting pains, then another follow up at 8 weeks. Unfortunately i have just come out of hospital with hypmeresis after 5 days admitted. I was constantly pumped with iv fluid lost over a stone in wieght couldn't eat or drink for 10 days and then started puking up small bits of blood where i had emptied my stomache completely yet was still being sick. Now i feel much better haven't been sick since coming out of hospital. I don't even meet my midwife until the 28th august when i'm 13 weeks and 3 days as my doctor mucked up. but since i've had 3 scans i am excited. I was constantly moody before, i felt i was ill not pregnant and my husband was getting very worried even got to the stage where we were thinking about terminating knowing we might never have another. I am now hoping that i remain well and start to enjoy my pregnancy. I am constantly feeling tired, and dont feel like doing anything..Has anyone else suffered with what i went through?
by shelby87 10th Aug 2009, 9:21am
I'm 11 weeks 3 days pregnant i'm like a nervous wreck!!!! This is my first pregnancy and i have been told by the doctors that i wouldn't have been able to have a baby without help well i showed them!!!! I just cant help being so nervous all the time sometimes i wake up and my belly looks smaller than some mornings i havent had any symptoms apart from feeling nauseous sometimes having headaches tender breasts and going to the toilet throughout the night......

3rd pregnancy.Different&difficult this time around.Unplanned but excited&hopeful.Sickness starting to subside...Mum of 2girls.Had been desperate for a boy,but our girls are adorable &couldn't swap them for anyone in the world(truly).Don't ever worry about being overanxious.Its your right to ensure that you&Baby are ok.I have had cramp&light bleeding with my 1st 2&they're fine-7&3now:)It's ok to be emotional.Our bodies are enduring a lot to grow our bubs...1st midwife appointment next week&can't wait.Even with Baby #3,I still love looking up Baby's developmental stage.It's fascinating,humbling&amazing.I hope you all have great love&support&are able(even eventually)to enjoy the miracle that you are a part of now. x

Still got all the horrible early symptoms, sickness... all through the day! and my tastes are changing too, things I used to love, I hate now, and I can eat things I used to absolutely hate! starting to get really fed up with the sickness though, can't wait for it to start dying down.

Hey, Im a first time mommy. im 11 weeks pregnant now and for the past couple of days i've had a really bad cramp on my right side. It feels like i ran a marathon and got a cramp with out the loss of breath. Also, the feeling is like a my lung is getting pinched inbetween my lungs...i was just wondering if that was a normal feeling or if i should consult with my doctor. I just don't know if i should be worried about any type of complications?!
by SusieDs 18th Mar 2009, 9:15am
I had my first scan yesterday and found out I am 11 weeks exactly which is what I had already worked out. It was amazing seeing it on the screen as I had convinced myself that I was making it all up and there would be nothing there, I haven't suffered with morning sickness just feeling sick at times. Cant wait to be a mummy. Good Luck to everyone! xx
by Phebeecat 19th Feb 2009, 10:13am
hi im 11 weeks, had a early scan at six weeks and was told things were fine. I have got no symptoms anymore not even sore boobs so now i am worried.
by tazy1982 17th Feb 2009, 9:42am
Hi There....I am 11 weeks pregnant...scan on 18th Feb, OMG I feel sooo sick and dizzy! I have a beautiful two year old daughter and dont remember feeling like this at all in my last pregnancy.......I think maybe this is because once you have had one baby your body learns to deal with it differently next time round or maybe its a boy this time? ..dont worry if you havent had any symptoms...I didnt really have any with my first pregnancy...I honestly feel like I have a constant hangover at the moment!!!, everyone is different Good luck everyone, keep smiling and enjoy the pregnancy, Just think there is a new life in side of you right amazes me!! xxx

Hi, im pregnant with my second child,i only found out a few weeks ago and according to my dates im between 11 and 13 weeks, but according to my symptoms im very confused and im waitin for an appointment for my first scan i cant wait really just so i no that everythings ok then i will be alot more relaxed and i can start looking forward to the future.
by elle2 2nd Feb 2009, 10:43am
Hi, Dont worry about having no symptoms as you are very lucky. Believe me I suffered bad hearburn up to 16 weeks and I was miserable. Dont think anything is wrong, I am 32 weeks with my second and it is going so fast. Just enjoy your pregnancy and try not to worry that anything is wrong. By the way sore boobs are a symptom so you do have one, just one of the nicer ones! Good luck with your pregnancy!
by Littlemisstrouble 22nd Jan 2009, 8:56am
Hey laDies,
I am 11 weeks toDay. This Is My first Pregnancy.. & Im a tad bit worried because I have no Symptoms, no bump just Sore Breast. I also heard My baby's Heartbeat when I was 9 weeks. Dr.Said everything looked gooD. Should I worry?
by tRuStaR 21st Jan 2009, 5:27pm
Hi Ladies thanks for the replies, I have due date of 2nd August, my scan also on 19th it just seems like a waiting game. Due to the miscarriages I also convinced something wrong, my friend gave me her heart beat machine but got myself more worried that I couldnt hear anything (prob should of read instructions first). I still feel rubbish and as much as I try not to worry it is difficult. Role on the 19th and the scan

by nicolastewart 13th Jan 2009, 9:17am
Hi everyone. I am just about 11 weeks and wish I could just enjoy being pregnant and not be worried all the time. This is my secong pregnancy, first one I miscarried at 6 weeks. At week eight of this one I was woken in the middle of the night with very heavy bleeding and was disnosed with a subchorionic Hematoma. I was never so scared. the dr assured me it is very common and my case is very mild. Has anyone else had this? Besides that I have been really tired and a but sick...but is actually a nice feeling b/c first time I was never sick. I'm just patiently awaiting 12 weeks!!! Good luck to everyone!!
by amy7 12th Jan 2009, 10:34am
Hi im new to this - just got a question for Reecey - when is your baby due? im due 29th July and 1st scan is on 19th of this month - im about 11 weeks at the moment! I was wondering if there is anyway i could try and listen to the babys heartbeat at home as i am going crazy worrying - i dont have any symptoms, they all dissapeared at about 9 weeks and havent come back - ive tried talking to doc's and midwife - they all think its normal to be worried but i cant get them to listen to me - i really do not feel right - im so convinced that the fetus has died that i cant even think about anything else!
by vic777 12th Jan 2009, 10:34am
Hi Reecey, I also feel very emotional (crying over everything from teddy bears to palestine) but feel fine physically. I am also 11 weeks and had first scan this morning (baby looked fine and was moving its arms). Have decided not to tell anyone though until next scan at about 14 weeks.
by carolr 12th Jan 2009, 10:34am
Hey, im new on here. This is my 3rd pregnancy and its like nothing iv ever experienced before. I have an 8yr old girl and a 3yr old boy. Both pregnancys identicle...this one is wierd. I have morning sickness, tiredness, mood swings plus anythin else you can think of. I thought i was only 6 weeks but went to the midwife for the first time yesterday and she thinks im 12 + weeks!!! Im meant to be going to see take That in june! They have booked me in for a scan next week so like the midwife said, either im further along or there is more than one in there... im really nervous now. Good luck to all expectant mums, its the best job in the world havin kids
by Hickster 8th Jan 2009, 5:41pm
To abosede, I experienced exactly the same feelings as you. I was so ill over xmas I thought I was dying. I cried to my partner that I couldn't take anymore. It sounds awful but I thought that if I lost the baby it would be a blessing. Im so pleased to say i am getting better and feel that its all a lot more bearable. I am 11 weeks and getting excited. Pls dont worry, I know how you're feeling and am sure you will feel better soon. Good luck xxx
by raquel1 8th Jan 2009, 9:35am

Hi! I am 10 wks pregnant and very excited. I smoked with my first son I know that wasn't right. I am trying to cut down on smoking well which I have but is very hard I pray everyday to take the urge away from me

Congratulations to all 'new' moms..whether it be 1st or 5th angel. Its been quite a trip for me and so far I've been coping fairly.....well, okay I guess.
This is my 4th pregnancy. I have two children (girl - 7 and boy - 2) and had one miscarriage.
I feel a bit excited to have this little one even though circumstances surrounding my pregnancy isn't so 'joyous'.
by TJ2 26th Nov 2008, 9:11am
I am 11 weeks tomorrow and the nausea of the previous weeks has now become actual physical sickness. I've got sore boobs, headaches sometimes and generally very tired. It's all so worth it though!! First and much-longed for baby at 38. I am so very happy! :-)
by Lucycb 19th Nov 2008, 9:08am

by tanz123 11th Nov 2008, 9:49am
I'm 11 weeks pregnant and still can't quite believe it. I had some very scary bleeding at about 6 and 7 weeks. it was a sudden bright red gush of blood which trailed off to nothing after a few days then after another few days it happened again. After the third gush in a week, I was sure I had miscarried. I was on holiday at the time so I waited to get home to see my doctor. You can imagine my surprise when she showed me the tiny embryo on the ultrasound! However, also visible on the ultrasound were several blood clots, which explained the bleeding, but we don't know why they were there. I was put on bed rest for a few weeks and then went back for another scan at 9 weeks. The bleeding has stopped, the baby had grown and the blood clots were still there but not getting any bigger, so now I'm back at work and trying to take it easy.
I just wanted to share this with you all so that you are not so scared of bleeding, there is hope.
It was even harder for me to believe since I already suffered a miscarriage at 8 weeks only in July....
But now at 11 weeks, baby is sill doing fine and I am still crossing my fingers.
amazing how resilient the human body is!

by MrsRezek 7th Nov 2008, 8:52am
Hi all, im 11 weeks prenant with my 3rd child, im being sick in the mornings and am very tired!!!! My belly is starting to show already and im in maternity clothes (i cant believe it)
Over the last 2 weeks i have felt the baby move twice, feels like a little butterfly right in the bottom of my belly which only lasted for about 2-3 seconds!!!!! Good luck to you all x x
by mia2005 27th Oct 2008, 8:58am
I'm 11 weeks pregnant and I've just found out that my first scan is next week which I am very excited about! The midwife is coming to my home to perform it which I thought was quite good. There has been no mention of my booking-in appointment though and I was just wondering if this is likely to be done at the same time as the scan? So far I haven't had my weight checked, blood pressure taken or any other tests perfomed and I have received very little information and been asked very few questions... This is my first pregnancy so I don't quite no what to expect. Is this normal?
by Josephina 26th Sep 2008, 9:16am
second baby on the way. MUCH more nauseous than withmy first. YAY
by secretpanther 9th Sep 2008, 8:57am

by juw 12th Aug 2008, 9:27am
Hi am 11 weeks now and i am so excited. I have been really lucky - no morning sickness - i had some nausea before we found out we are expecting!! I have been sufering from trapped wind but that seems to have passed. Gums were bleeding but that's gone. Boobs aren't sore. I am just so tired and my hormones have been reaping havoc - I cried most of last weekend, felt really good for a couple of days and today i am like a bear with a sore head! have first scan next week - i am excited but nervous in case i dreamt the whole thing (i have done 6 positive tests though so i doubt it)!!!
by Amylou86 7th Aug 2008, 10:00am
hi all! i see some of the posts below and it seems as though we are all going through the same thing. i have had funny, almost "ouchy" pains. I attribute it to growing as thats the only way I can think positively. i also had a little pink discharge. after immediatly calling the doctor, the nurse said "bed-rest" the doctor said "you're me if there is blood blood...everything else is normal" phew!

you see, as woman we freak out and there is nothing to be alarmed about. if there is something, you'll know for sure. if you aren't sure; no need to worry, that will only hurt you. i know its easier said than done, but i'm going to try not to loose it unless i see something very very scary. my prayers are with all of you! and CONGRATS!
by embrace 4th Aug 2008, 9:06am
I am 11 weeks progo and I finnaly feel fine no more nausesa or extreme fatigue! BUt, I have been getting not a pian but a weird feeling in what I believe is my utereus. It does not hurt at all and I have no bleeding could it just be my womb growing?
by Griffith 12th Jun 2008, 8:43am
Hi guys! I got married last year December 22nd and I thought I was going to first complete my studies before considering having a child.But after forgeting my contraceptive pills I said to myself what the heck,I am married anyway and would not be a bad idea to have a baby at this stage.After months of trying God has answered our prayers.I am +/- 11 weeks pregnant! Oh yes I've started experiencing changes in my bodies and I think its started a month ago, I am going to go and see the doctor soon and found out how my little Ngcebo or Nongcebo is doing.Ngcebo is a Zulu name meaning the (Richness of God)
by Tholah 29th May 2008, 11:44am
Had a bit of a shock yeasterday morning when I had a tiny bleed. The doctor has said it could be the placenta implanting. Anyone else had this? He's told me to rest for 3 or 4 days. On a good note my sickness is subsiding, still very tired though. Can't wait for my first scan, it will put my mind at rest to hear a heart beat.
by jenks 7th Apr 2008, 8:42am

by aimee1630 10th Mar 2008, 9:02am
