Wednesday marks the start of week 17. Everything is still going really well with Brian and I. He is completing some projects that he needs to complete before we start revamping the guest room into the nursery.
We have picked out paint chip and will test samples on the walls after we get back from our hunting trip over halloween weekend.
Here is a food representation of the size of our baby. A Turnip.
Other Baby Stuff
Your baby during week 17 is now very mobile, gleefully moving his joints here, there and everywhere and will continue to do so as you continue your pregnancy week by week. The cartilage making up the skeleton in your baby's body is starting to transform into bone. At pregnancy 17 weeks time your baby should be hearing things. Your baby will start putting on some layers of fat in the weeks to come, though at this point in time your baby is made up of primarily water.
You may be feeling your baby move intermittently after pregnancy week 17, though as your pregnancy progresses you will likely start feeling your baby move more and more.
Some women find comfort when playing music to their unborn children. There is evidence suggesting that your baby responds to music even while in the womb. Thus, there is no harm in playing some calm and engaging music to your baby even while they are in the womb.
