15 Weeks pregnant

Week 15 starts on day 105 and goes up to day 112. It is your sixteenth pregnancy week.


Length of your baby: 11 centimeter / 4.3 inches
Weight of your baby: 90 grams / 3.2 ozs

Your pregnancy at 15 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum

As you begin to feel more comfortable and grow into your pregnancy it is time to look at other areas of your health. Oral hygiene is very important during pregnancy as hormones can affect your gums and teeth, making them swell, redden or develop bumps and sores. In some cases you may develop pregnancy gingivitis, a growth of bacteria which can be exasperated by the high levels of progesterone.

In very rare cases gingivitis can progress to peridontitis which research has indicated may be linked to pre-eclampsia and premature labour. If you do have symptoms of gingivitis such as red or swollen gums, bleeding of gums while brushing and persistent bad breath, it is a good idea to arrange a check up with your dentist or oral hygenist who can advise you best on how to alleviate symptoms.

 

What's happening with baby

Baby is now about the size of an orange and their senses are developing sufficiently that they can now sense light through eyelids which are still closed and as the bones in their ears harden they can hear your voice and your heartbeat.

Baby's hair follicles are now busy growing languno, a fine downy hair which will cover their entire body and helps protect them from disease and infection as well as insulating them to maintain body temperature.

The Practicalities

This is a good time to start thinking about where and how you would like your baby to be born. Try to gather as much information as you can from your midwife with regards to the facilities and options available.

    It`s my 3rd pregnancy but my second baby. I lost the 1st. My second was a beatiful baby girl now 5 years old and now im 15 weeks 5 days pregnant with my baby boy. Every time i get a feeling about the baby`s sex and it turned out to be true. Good luck to all the mothers to be. Be safe and God bless.

    Just found out yesterday, that I am 15 weeks 3 days with my 2nd baby. I am over the moon. First baby is going to turn 22 yrs. old next month. I thought I could never get pregnant again. I prayed and prayed about it. I am beside myself. Husband is ecstatic!

    @ericacoons30 - “I am 15 weeks 4 days...„
    I would go with the new due date if you measured 5 days further, the lmp is just used as an estimation date to when you may have conceived, if it were me id go with how far I`m measured to be, but its entirely up to you. both of my children were born a week before their due dates so there is no 100% date..its all up to the baby when they are ready lol hope this helps

  • ericacoons30

    I am 15 weeks 4 days. I`m pretty sure the first day of my LMP was March 19th,2016 which puts my due date at December 24th,2016, but I had an ultrasound at almost 12 weeks and I measured 5 days further. Now that puts me at December 19th for my due date. The doc said as long as its a week or less on lmp and ultra sound date then they leave it at lmp date. When would I have conceived then?? I`m pretty sure my periods were always around 28 days apart. Pls help. This is driving me crazy
