Born & Birth stories

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.

Your baby, 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.

Hello week 15! I swear I've felt my baby too but nothing obvious.

rayansmama - 2 days ago
Good luck tsabasa.. I have an apt on dec 4 after 16 weeks so I hope my OB does a scan but I have the anatomy scan on dec 22. Since another doctor already said its a boy at 12 weeks, I'm just praying it's the other way around at the anatomy scan. Praying for a healthy baby!

I have my next OB appointment on Monday. I REALLY hope he can tell me if it is a boy or a girl! It feels like this month has gone by so so slowly because I have been so excited for this! If he can't tell, I suppose I have to wait until the morphology scan in January. :(

tsubasa - 5 days ago
bgscoobyluver that's awesome! I have definitely felt some tiny movements but nothing extremely obvious yet and nothing like what you mentioned.

Good morning week 15! It's really quiet on here?!

ckaySA - 30 days ago
Wow!! It's been like forever since I've posted anything! Hope all of you are doing well ;) It turns out that this pregnancy will be way different after have spotting every few days due to subchorionic(?) bleeding...I seem to have pockets of blood close to my cervix...separate to baby that as my pregnancy progresses these pockets will drain...weird hey...not something i'm used to but have had to make peace with...anyone else have a bleeding pregnancy before?

beachmommia - 33 days ago
Morning ladies, I'm on baby #3 and I'm only 15 weeks but my lower back is killing me. I had to wear my pregnancy brace already. My back hurt in the later part of both pregnancies but not this early. any thoughts? Wishing everyone well

Taylorrsbunno2- then maybe I'm having another girl and you're having a boy. My baby's heart rate was 160. I think my daughter's was in the 160's too. But who really knows? I suppose only a view of the 'goods' themselves will prove it!

Taylorsbunno2 - 36 days ago
Ahh wow rissa how lovely of your work colleges. I have 2 girls and my partner has 1 girl so we would like a boy but I think we're have a girl lol. Heart rate between 130-140. The girls were a lot higher

Rissa1 - 36 days ago
taylorsbunno2--In response to your question from week 14...I thought I was having a boy, but now I'm leaning toward girl. I'll be happy with either one though!

Rissa1 - 36 days ago
My scan is the day is on Nov. 24th! Some friends at work bought me a gender peek with an outside company though...Any thoughts on whether I should try to go at 16 weeks or if I should wait until 18 weeks? They bought it for me because I was complaining about having to wait until 20 weeks (and they're also dying to know).

Taylorsbunno2 - 37 days ago
Creamy mushrooms and tuna I really fancy! I don't even know if they go but sounds so good right now!

Taylorsbunno2 - 39 days ago
Aussidanni- omg mine is 10am too lol. I thought the second tri things got better but I'm more tired, my gums are bleeding and I can't even cope with 3 6 hour shifts a week. Let alone all the mummy's out there working full time lol

AussieDanni - 39 days ago
Taylors - 10am, you? Feels like ages away! Nausea was my only yuck part of first trimester, exhaustion has only started this week for me! I don't remember being this tired in 2nd trimester before!

Taylorsbunno2 - 39 days ago
Aussiedanni- we got the same due date and got our scans on the same day! What time is your's? If I get really hungry my nausea comes back and in bed by 9pm I didn't feel this bad in the first tri lol

AussieDanni - 39 days ago
