Pregnancy at 17 Weeks

I am at 17 weeks and 4 days of my pregnancy right now. So far things are going well except for some pains that I feel in my sciatic nerve on my left side and some other discomforts. I'm just glad that I didn't go through with bad morning sickness. I surely feel that my tummy is getting bigger and is now showing more and more and I feel the baby's tiny movement more often. My next OB-GYN appointment will be on Feb 9th. We will be able to know the gender of my baby during that doctor's visit. Hubby and I are getting more excited.

Here's a bit of information from babycenter.com at how the baby is growing at 17 weeks of pregnancy. "The baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. The 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."
