We’re now in week 17 of the pregnancy. This post is a couple days late, though. Anyway, things are really changing now. What’s happening to the baby? Its bones are now changing from cartilage to solid bone. All the joints are moving, too. The baby is about 13cm long from head to bottom. Also, the baby’s hearing is starting to develop now, and reacting to sounds. The brain is also developing the senses.
What’s happening with my fiancee this week? She’s been feeling abdominal pains. That’s the round ligament pain because of the growing baby and expanding uterus. Also, the baby is now growing up to around the belly button area, so there’s a baby bump! She’s also feeling a bit dizzy at times and has an irregular sleeping schedule (wide awake at night, sleepy during the day). The morning sickness is mostly gone.
2 more weeks until the next checkup and ultrasound!
