Thanks for your question! Our Healthcare Expert will be answering some questions every week but in the meantime, here's a little tip from our Careline! It is very normal to experience soft tummy at 17 weeks of pregnancy. This seems to be a very common feedback among pregnant mummies during the first two trimester. It all depends on the size and position of the foetus. It will probably get hard as you get further along in your pregnancy. Do not get too worry about it. If you are concern, you may check with your gynae during your next follow-up.
At 17 weeks, baby is about the size of your palm and weighs only about 150gms. Your tummy might be starting to show but the height of the uterus is only somewhere midway between your pubic bone and the umbilicus so the rest of your abdomen might still feel soft.
