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Because the HCg in your body has been replaced by progesterone you may, this week, start to notice many of the pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and vomiting starting to ease off and even disappear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

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.

17 weeks, been feeling my baby move for several weeks! This is our 2nd blessing. It took us 6yrs to conceive & carry this far after 4 miscarries & a tubal which I lost my tube to. This baby is a true miracle for our family <3

@thobile myeza - “this is my 18th week...„
It`s harder to tell when the baby is moving when it`s your first. Don`t worry :)

kimberly1032 (99 days ago)

@thobile myeza - “this is my 18th week...„
Hello thobile myeza - I am 17 weeks and 1 day, I have just started feeling something that may be the baby but it is very faint. This is my 3rd pregnancy and my Dr. told me today it is still too early to really feel anything. It was longer for me with my first two - that is totally normal :)

17 weeks today we already have two girls, found out on Monday that we are having a baby boy so excited. Then the Dr told me that from the cervical length ultrasound that my cervix start to open just a little not happy about that. I have a ultrasound schedule every week until I`m 26wks to make sure everything is going ok. I`m pRAYING TO GOD THAT EVERYTHING GOES OK AND THAT WE WILL HAVE A HEALTHY BABY BOY!
