The Pregnancy - Week 17

You may experience a backache, leg pain, and increasing hunger. The uterus can be felt almost below your umbilicus. The backache could be because of the increase in your weight. You should lie down and take rest and this usually brings down the pain. You should also watch your diet and try to take many meals a day but in small quantities. You need to keep your blood sugar levels normal all the time.

Pregnant women usually look beautiful during this month. This is because of the increased blood volume during pregnancy especially to the face of the pregnant women. this brings about a glow to the face called the pregnancy glow. You may also begin to experience baby movements from this week onwards. This could be very thrilling, experiencing the baby kick for the first time. Make sure to share your experience with your spouse. It is good to keep your spouse involved during all the important moments of your pregnancy.
