Baby is 17 weeks old & heartbeat is pumping



Your baby is now nearly 5.5 inches/ 13 centimetres long from crown to rump and weighs approximately 5 ounces/ 140 grams.

Her skeleton is mostly rubbery cartilage, which will harden later. A protective substance called myelin slowly begins to wrap around the spinal cord.

With the help of a special stethoscope, you can now hear your baby’s heartbeat. There’s almost nothing more comforting or exciting than hearing your baby’s heartbeat galloping along.
