15-Week Pregnant

Post  mama_faiz on Thu May 28, 2009 11:52 am

Your baby's crown-to-rump length is approximately 4 inches and she now
weighs approximately 1.75 ounces. Your baby is close to the size of a
softball and you can easily tell that you are pregnant now! If you wear
maternity clothes or a swimming suit, other people will be able to tell
that you are pregnant also. You can probably feel your uterus about
three to four inches below your bellybutton.

25 weeks to go.....

If you do not yet have a due date, your doctor can easily
determine an accurate due date based on the measurement of your baby's
head. This is done by an ultrasound examination. Your doctor will be
discussing upcoming tests and procedures with you around this time that
are able to diagnose or confirm birth defects and other abnormalities.

Your baby is growing at an amazing rate and looking more like
a human every day. Because your baby's skin is so thin, you are able to
see blood vessels through the skin. Lanugo hair covers your baby's
body, but it will be gone when your baby is born. The hair on the
eyebrows and head continues to grow. Some babies are born with little
or no hair and others have a head full of hair! If you have an
ultrasound at this point, you might be able to see your baby sucking
its thumb. Even though the eyes continue to move to the front of the
face, they are still widely separated. Your baby's ears look like
normal ears and continue to develop externally. The bones that have
already formed continue to get harder and retain calcium. The baby is
very mobile and flexible at this point. She can bend her arms at the
elbows and wrists and she can also make a fist with her hands.
