I am 17 weeks pregnant TODAY. I haven't taken a photo yet...but I will sometime. Nothing has really changed from last week but I am constantly surprised at how big the baby is by the updates I get. I look at my fist and picture my baby all the time.
Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.
