17 Weeks Pregnant - Signs of Pregnancy
At 17 weeks pregnant you'll notice your breasts have changed quite a lot in preparation for breastfeeding.
Your nipples will be larger and darker and you may notice a creamy white substance, colostrum, leaking a little. Colostrum is a nutrient dense liquid produced by the breasts in preparation for nourishing your baby. It may be time to think about getting a more supportive maternity bra and some breastfeeding pads!
Your baby is now producing urine. He also drinks some of the amniotic fluid in which he floats. His skeleton is changing from cartilage to bone and if you are expecting a boy, his prostate begins to develop.
