My Baby - Week by Week Pregnancy

Week 17 - Responding to Loud Noises

Your baby is approximately 5 inches long (crown to rump) and weighs just less than 5 ounces! He or she should weigh more than the placenta from this point on.

Since your baby's hearing has become more finely tuned, he or she may respond to loud noises and you may feel movement at the sound of large trucks passing or a slamming door.

Epidermal (skin) and fatty tissue are developing all over your baby's body to protect it after it is born and a substance called vernix is beginning to form on the skin tissue to protect it from the long exposure to amniotic fluid.
