      Your 17th week

      Your Baby

      The foetus forms the structure of your baby as the days pass, with the head growing in comparison to the rest of the body. The shoulders, spine and chest are now connected by bones. At the size of 12 centimetres, the foetus weighs about 120 grams.

      Your body

      Your baby belly is more visible as your uterus is extended now. Darker areolas and moles may be experienced by some women as a result of increased pigmentation at this stage.

      Our AptaAdvantage Tip

      This is the time to have a holiday and relax. The little hiccups from the first weeks of pregnancy are over. You feel fit now and the belly is not interfering. Take advantage of this opportunity to relax and conserve energy for the birth while enjoying quality time with your partner.
