My Body – Pregnancy Week 17

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 17

Are you feeling off-balance this week? Now that your little one is measuring in at about five inches, chances are you have more weight higher up and out in front of your body than you are used to. It may be time to put away those high heels, and put on some cute, new flats. If nothing else, it's a good excuse to go shopping!

Are you a good candidate for amniocentesis? Talk to your medical provider this week to find out the benefits, and risks, of this procedure.

    I’m worried about amniocentesis ,cause I like my baby

    I was always very, rarely the type of girl to go ahead and wear heals when I really didn’t have to. Heck! I even have a pair of blocky, tennis shoe heels rather than the typical heels. They just feel more me. Usually, when I had to dress up, I always went to the flats if I was allowed and could help it.

      before I was pregnant I weighed 126. I weighted 140 at 16 weeks and when I went for a check up on the BMI it said I was over weight but my Doctor hasn’t said anything about my weight so im guessing its not a problem.
