Peanut at 17 weeks
How your baby's growing: Your baby weighs about 5 ounces now, and he's around 5 inches long — about the size of a large onion. He can move his joints, and his skeleton — until now rubbery cartilage — is starting to harden to bone. His sense of hearing is also developing. The umbilical cord, his lifeline to the placenta, is growing stronger and thicker.
Wow, we can't believe how quickly our little peanut, or should we say large onion, is developing! Time is moving SOOO quickly, and before we know it, our little one will be here....
