Pregnancy facts at 15 weeks

During the fifteenth week of pregnancy and throughout the second trimester, most women tend to relax a bit more. As mentioned before, the fifteenth week does not herald significant changes within your body. Your baby has grown since last week, weighing 1.75 ounces and reaching four inches in length.
Since your belly is not yet sticking out, and you have not gained a much weight, you have not yet had to learn to walk in a new position, so this is a great week to begin teaching yourself how to sleep on your side and how to sit, stand, and walk with better posture. Your baby's internal and external growth continues at a remarkable pace throughout the 15th week of pregnancy.
By your 15th week of pregnancy, your baby's ears probably have reached their permanent position on the side of her head, and her eyes are moving to where they belong on the front of her face.

By the end of your 15th week of pregnancy, your baby might be able to wiggle her fingers and toes, make a fist, or even suck her thumb.
Ask your doctor about antacids that are OK to take, including which types to use, when they can be used, and whether they are safe for you to use for heartburn during pregnancy. Most of the worst pregnancy symptoms, like nausea, morning sickness, and fatigue, are decreasing more and more as the days go by.
Many women have gained up to five pounds by this week, although weight gain varies from mom to mom. If you practice now, it will become much easier later in the pregnancy, when you will be forced to do these things to relieve pain. Next is pregnancy at 16 weeks.
The pain that comes at the end of the pregnancy is far off, so you can finally sit back and enjoy the fact that you are pregnant.

If you've not done so already, we encourage you to join the conversation on our Facebook group page. The toughest situation moms-to-be face during this week is that the ligaments that support the uterus are continuing to grow, causing sharp pain in the abdomen.
