Have you ever wondered what happens to you and baby in Week 17 of pregnancy?

To read Week 16, please click here.

Here is a detailed list of Week 17 pregnancy facts:

  • The pregnant monther’s waistline has completely disappeared and you may have begun to develop stretch marks.
  • It is probably time to start wearing maternity clothes.
  • Bleeding gums may be a problem. If so, it might be time to visit the dentist.
  • Your baby’s limbs are fully formed as well as the skin and muscle.
  • Taste buds are beginning to develop so your baby will be able to distinguish between sweet and non-sweet fluid.
  • The fetus is 18 cm long and weighs 185 grams.

  • oh yes, starting to wear maternity clothes and maxi dresses around now is a very good idea, I have hit week 18 today in my second pregnancy and everything is getting bigger sooner. With baby growing as much as he is I am feeling him move a lot more, I felt him kicking a few mornings ago but I am mainly feeling pressure from him rolling around.
