Week 17 starts on day 119 and goes up to day 126.
It is your 18e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 18 centimeter / 7.1 inches
Weight of your baby: 150 gram / 5.3 ozs

Because the HCg in your body has been replaced by progesterone you may, this week, start to notice many of the pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and vomiting starting to ease off and even disappear completely. However, there are other things such a pelvic instability which can begin to arise around this time.

Any anxiety you are feeling should begin to ease off now as you become more accustomed to the changes taking place in your body.

Your baby may now begin to notice noises from outside the womb even if they are not very loud. Loud noises can however irritate your baby and make them restless.

Your baby is now able to move his head, mouth, lips, arms, fists, hands, legs, feet and toes and will continually do so to exercise and practice for life outside your womb.

We`re 39 weeks now. I did have to take several IVs after all. Vomiting didn`t stop tho. I was on anti-emetics till mid 2nd trimester. And when I did stop, it continued.
But I overcame! and we`re ready to be born!

Yeah it`s normal luvie. Can last up to twelve weeks gestation. Has it been bad vomiting? If it`s getting bad see a Gp and get a prescription for ondansetron. Try stay hydrated x it`s a horrible phase but it does pass. I had severe hyoeremesis last pregnancy and again this pregnancy. Vomited for 8 weeks straight with four weeks in hospital living in an Iv so I get how much you hate it. But once you pass the vomiting and start feeling kicks and movements it`s a lot more enjoyable. Just keep telling yourself it won`t last forever x

Have you tried the baken soda test

Tashu84 (383.2 days ago)
17 weeks today and we will find out the sex in 3 weeks. I THINK this baby will be another boy so I`ll have 3 but hubby has his fingers, toes and anything else he can cross, for a girl. :)

I already found out at 15 weeks on the gender. We have 2 girls and 1 boy and hoping this 4th baby will be a boy and we got what we wanted. My son is 4 turning 5 and he is overly happy with tons of joy. He kisses my belly, rubs my belly and tell baby he loves him. We are so blessed, now we have an equal amount of children and could not ask for more.

I am 17 weeks, and 4 days today! This will be my fourth child, and we are very excited! We have two girls, and a son who is two. In a little less than two weeks we find out the gender. My husband, and I are hoping for a boy BC this will be his first biological son,and we want them to be close together like the girls. To the person making negative comments about us women with multiple children, and that we are insane, and must be wealthy. This blog is for pregnant women to share, and offer support to one another.
