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Because the HCg in your body has been replaced by progesterone you may, this week, start to notice many of the pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and vomiting starting to ease off and even disappear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

It`s harder to tell when the baby is moving when it`s your first. Don`t worry :)

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 :)
