At 17 weeks pregnant, your baby is the size of a pear. They’re starting to move around inside your belly. You might not feel it yet, but you will soon.

As your baby grows, your body keeps changing. Stretch marks may appear. In a few weeks, your provider will likely start measuring fundal height. That’s the length from your pubic bone to the top of your uterus. It helps the doctor or midwife track fetal growth and development.

Think about whether or not you’d like to have maternity photos taken. They’re a sweet way to remember all the amazing things your body is doing! There are other ways to remember your pregnancy too, like writing a letter to your future baby.
