God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

17 wks

How big is your baby?
Your baby is now about 6.29 inches long and weighs 5 ½ ounces.*
What is happening with your baby?
A protective covering called myelin is beginning to form around his/her nerves. This covering will continue to form up until your baby’s first birthday. If you are having a little girl, her fallopian tubes and uterus have positioned themselves into the correct place. If you are having a little boy, then his genitals may be noticed on your next ultrasound. However, many babies do not like to cooperate during the ultrasound, and the genitals cannot be seen.

When I was pregnant, one of my favorite things was learning more about the life growing inside of me. Thanks for sharing!
