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Because the HCg in your body has been replaced by progesterone you may, this week, start to notice many of the pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and vomiting starting to ease off and even disappear completely.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.

@Heather Preston - “Does any of you feel...„
I think this is perfectly normal. At this point, he or she still has plenty of room to move around, so feeling the baby move will be a hit or miss! When the baby is bigger, with less space to move around, you will feel kicks more often!

Heather Preston (60.6 days ago)

I get that way to sometimes, but my doctor said it depends on how the eggs are cooked! How do you make yours? If the yolk isn`t fully cooked sometimes that can make you sick

Like the 3 wise men blessing Jesus, we have also gotten 3. 1) I got pregnant naturally at 43. 2) I didn`t miscarry and 3) just found out today the baby is healthy! Low risk <1% of trisomy 13,18,21. My only dilemma now is how to break the news of the sex to my loving `little` girl (21yrs old) that she isn`t the only princess in the family anymore? Any ideas guys? PS: big thanx to meek spirit for the prayer and congrats on the flutters! Anxious for it myself.

a prayer for you all who need and wish prayer for you and your babies....

Loving Heavenly Father, creator of all things, Your Word says You created all things through Jesus Christ and You made all things good and perfect.You give life to all things. I thank You, that I have conceived by Your grace and mercy. The baby in my womb is Your creation, thank You for Your precious gift.

Lord, Your word says, Truly You have formed my innermost being. You have woven me in my mothers womb. According to Your Word, let my baby grow normally with all its requirements fulfilled. Take away all complications from my baby and me. Grant me and my baby good health. Lord, let my baby be perfect as You are perfect.

Lord Jesus, You be present with me during all this time this baby grows and comes into this world. Lord Your Word says Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I sanctified you. Please grant me a safe and normal delivery. Take away all blocks and barriers that could hinder this blessing in my life. Lord I also pray that You lead all pregnant women who are reading this prayer to safe and normal pergnancies and deliveries. All this I ask in the name of Jesus, who is Lord of Life, now and forever. Amen.

treesmom (171.4 days ago)
i will be 18 weeks tomorrow.. and I have a question.. I am huge for my weeks and I told the dr I think I am having more than 1.. but when they did my ultrasound she saw one and stopped.. with her fetal Doppler 1 heart beat and stopped.. I bought me a fetal Doppler from ebay and picked up 2 baby heart beats and my heart beat.. can this be right or did I hear something I thought sounded like to galloping horses one on left one on right side of belly button.
