17 Weeks pregnant

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


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

Your pregnancy at 17 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum

As your skin stretches and thins to accomodate the bump you may find yourself prone to dryness and itchiness. It is a good idea to find a ph neutral moisturiser or body lotion to help avoid the scratching. 

While your skin may dry out, you may find you have excess fluids in other areas which can be as a result of excess blood flow. You could sweat more, have excess musuc causing a constant runny nose and may even find you are experiencing an excess of vaginal discharge which is okay as long as it is clear and has no odour.

 

 

What's happening with baby

Baby is growing steadily and his heart is now beating at double the speed of yours, around 145 beats per minute.

He is continuing to practise movement, twisting and stretching his arms and legs as his spine straightens out.

He is also learning those important skills such as sucking and swallowing in order that he is ready to suckle as soon as he is born.

    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

    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. :)

  • Ruby04

    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.
