Parent Pod from BabyCentre - 17 weeks pregnant

Update: 2020-02-031


We’ll be talking skin changes this week, your baby now has unique fingerprints and you may be seeing visible changes too. We find out what that dark line that may be emerging down the middle of your tummy is. In this episode, we’ll also be talking about the stigma of being a single parent and hear from Amy, author of 'Confessions of a Single Mum: What It's Like When You're Expecting The Unexpected' about raising her son by herself. We also talk about buying secondhand items for your baby? We discuss how to navigate local selling pages to find what you really need.
