Your pregnancy: 17 weeks

17 weeks-a

I FELT THE BABY MOVE FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY RIGHT BEFORE 1:30 PM!!!!!!!!!!!!

How your baby’s growing:

Your baby’s skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she’s around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.
