Pregnancy Calendar - Week 17
Your baby is working hard at growing and gaining weight. Baby's hands are already grasping and he weighs about 200 grams.
You are gaining weight steadily now and it's important to eat healthy food, even though those cravings might be strong! Remember you only need to eat an extra 300 calories a day, and it's best to keep these calories as healthy as possible. You will be asked to do a Triple Screen Test around this time to rule out any abnormalities with your baby.
