Your waistline will have completely disappeared and you may have begun to develop stretch marks. Bleeding gums may be a problem, so if you haven't had a dental check-up now is the time to go. If you work, you should start thinking about when you intend to leave and whether you will want to return.

Your growing baby - Week 17

Your baby’s limbs are fully formed in week 17, as well as the skin and muscle. Its taste buds are beginning to develop so that it will be able to distinguish sweet from non—sweetened fluid. After 17 week of pregnancy, the baby is about 5.1 inches (13 cm) long and weighs around 5 ounces (145 grams)
