Changes in Your Body at Week 15 Pregnancy
Not much of changes in your body now as you move towards the sixteenth week of pregnancy. Except that you would have gained a few kilos.
At 15 weeks of pregnancy, the only issue that you might have to deal with is the pain in your abdomen. The growing ligaments that support the uterus keeps growing. This causes the sharp shooting abdominal pain.
Your Baby’s Development at Week 15 Pregnancy
Fine hair called lanugo covers your baby’s skin now. This stays so till birth after which it disappears. It helps your baby to maintain a constant temperature inside your womb.
Till a few weeks back the head had been the largest part of your baby’s body. But now its arms and limbs have grown longer.
At 15 weeks of pregnancy, taste buds will begin to form.
The baby’s movements are still difficult to feel as you progress from the 14th week of pregnancy to the 15th one. But watch out for that kick. You just might be able to experience it a couple of times. Or maybe it is just the baby’s hiccups that you are feeling.
The greatest milestone at 15 weeks of pregnancy is that your baby can now hear your sounds and your heartbeats. This is because the bones in the ear are hardening.
