My Pregnancy Week 15

Pregnancy Week 15

Your little one is now roughly the size of an apple. She is about four inches long, and weighs about two and a half ounces. Her legs are now longer than her arms, and her bones are getting harder and stronger!

At 15 weeks, his skin is still thin and transparent, but he has developed a thin layer of hair to help protect his body. This layer of hair is called lanugo, and it is present on every part of your baby’s body, even his finger nails!

She is also moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract. This action helps the primitive air sacs, in her lungs, begin to develop. And even though her eyes will remain fused shut until approximately 26 weeks, she can actually sense light in your womb!

  12. Trying sucking on peppermint throughout the day or taking a B6 or B12 vitamin everyday. That helped with me when I was dealing with morning sickness. But everyone is different when it comes to morning sickness, hopefully yours will be going away soon. Good luck!

  13. Happy 15 Weeks Mommy to Be’s !!! I love this!

    Every person is different on when it goes away. My doctor told me to try taking a vitamin B6 and a unisom tab before bed. Unfortunetly I never tried it because my "morning" sickness was always in the late afternoon and evening and the thought of swallowing pills did not sound good at all 😉 I have heard from other people that it does work though! It is worth a try :)

    I am also still having it pretty bad. I didn’t so much with my first 2, but with both of my sisters’ she had it until the baby was born. It all just kind of depends on how your body reacts to the hormonal shifts.
