17 Weeks Pregnant

17 Weeks Pregnant

Your Baby is the Size of a Onion

Sweat glands develop, and the eyes and ears align to the right spot. Plus, the umbilical cord is getting stronger and thicker. As the ears continue to develop, your baby can react to noise it hears, especially those that are sudden such as the doorbell or your dog barking. Baby's heart is now regulated by the brain, which means steady and consistent beats rather than erratic ones. You'll also want to document baby's week-by-week growth by taking pictures!

Your Pregnancy

Your belly is now big enough to disrupt your sense of balance; avoid situations where you might fall. Also, your sleep cycle is likely disrupted as well, as your REM sleep doesn't last as long.


As awesome as your returned appetite is after 2-3 months of queasiness, it's important to maintain a healthy diet for your baby.
