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.

@EricaLyn, congrats on your successful progression. I hope everything continues to go well for you this time around. As far as movements, I normally start to notice them around 18 weeks, I think. It's been a while since I was last preggo, lol. Keep me posted ladies, have a good day. Oh yeah and I think morning sickness is gone. The only time I get sick is when If I don't eat for more than 3 hours. At the beginning I was on complete bed rest......

@saudia ~ Congrats on your boy! We don't know what we are having yet. Haven't gotten this far with any of our 6 prior pregnancies. #7 here, hoping our little one still has a beating heart. Very anxious and scared about what the future holds, but also in awe that a life is growing inside me. Would love to be able to feel movement to reassure me that our baby is doing okay :-)
--saudia- - 2 days ago
I guess I'll start posting here, i'lI be 15 weeks in 2 days. So excited to chat with you ladies. I have been a member of this site for almost 8 years, since I was preggo with my 2nd child. He'll be be 8 years old soon. We found out at 13 weeks that this baby is a boy, through blood tests, also genetics test came back normal. Have a good day ladies....

Congrats @maimai88! Yay! I'm so glad everything is working out for you :-)

I had my 15 week appointment today, everything looked great! I have my big ultrasound set for March 19:) so excited!
xEricaLynn - 5 days ago
I might as well move here, since I'll be 15 weeks on 2/22. Haven't felt any movements yet. I'm on pregnancy #7, with six prior first trimester losses. Won't have another appointment until March 2, when, if God allows it to be, I can hopefully hear the heartbeat with doppler. It's so hard for me, not knowing how our baby is doing. It's too early to hear anything with my stethoscope either. And NO, I'm not buying or renting a home doppler. Anyway... Best of luck to you ladies.

Hi everyone first time I've posted during this pregnancy . This is our 6th baby and we found out Tuesday we are having a little boy :) hope everyone's feeling ok ? I've been feeling a few movements here and there but I've anterior placenta so not very strong just yet x
maimai88 - 6 days ago
So happy to be in week 15! We're all getting so much closer to the halfway point now:) Charcharsuperstar- so glad you had a great ultrasound appointment! I'm not feeling any movement yet...with my two girls, I started to notice movement at 16 weeks, so I'm hoping that next week I will starts feeling this bubs move. I have my 15-week appointment on Monday! I imagine then I will also get to set the date for the big ultrasound:)Hope everyone is having a great day!
charcharsuperstar - 8 days ago
Ultrasound today.. things look beautiful! Any mom's who have been preggers before starting to feel little thumps? I am! Usually at night when I lay down to go to bed.
soontobemommyof6 - 9 days ago
Dates moved, I'm now 15+3! Super excited, I'm almost at my half way point! ( my baby will be delivered once my cerclage is removed at 37 weeks).
It is very quiet on here, I've been a member since 2009, and back then I could t keep up! I'm still close to about 20 of the ladies from that pregnancy, we have a fb group. My last preg, the boards were just like this, extremely quiet!
maimai88 - 10 days ago
I'm 14+4, but
since its a bit quiet in week 14, I'm
posting here as well! charcharsuperstar- it was the same way when I was pregnant with DD1 and DD2 ( 2011 and 2013)- super busy on this site. But it already began to taper off a bit in 2013...I think its because a lot of people join FB groups. I much prefer coming here though!

So happy to be in week 15! Where is everyone? Past pregnancies this site was so active..
flybear - 26 days ago
I was thinking I might need to go to the hospital the other night bc I couldn't even keep.small amounts of water down. I didn't eat anything at all and barely had anything to drink and was still throwing up nothing. But about the time i thought i may need to go, fluids started staying down. My stomach still doesn't feel right. Like nothing tastes good and I feel gross after I eat, but at least everything is staying down. Lol
sorry you're morning sickness is back. Thatvs the worst.
email@example.com - 26 days ago
Sorry to hear that. My kids had it when I was about 6-7 weeks pregnant. Luckily I did not get it. I remember when I was pregnant with my son I caught it and it was horrible...I ended up having to spend the day in the hospital cause I needed to have an iv to get fluids. After weeks of feeling good morning sickness has returned. I am not throwing up but I'm so nauseous
flybear - 28 days ago
My sons and I caught this stomach virus my daughter had earlier this week. Omg, it's horrible. :(
firstname.lastname@example.org - 29 days ago
I think I'm the only person who switched to eating well done so I'll take it a step down and do medium-well since no pregnant person I know have had complications from eating it that way. I can't see how somebody can eat a rare steak either. I like a pink center but I can't stand when it's runny. I'm going to Fogo de Chao on Valentines Day so I can't wait to be in steak heaven
flybear - 30 days ago
I normally eat my steaks medium well anyways, soi don't change anything. I'm just the opposite. If I see blood in my steak I can't eat another bite. I prefer the taste of the meat after it's been cooked longer. :) interesting though bc I never even thought about that for people who prefer theirs more rare.
email@example.com - 30 days ago
Lol, I feel you on the meat. Every now and then I get a craving for steak and i just have to have one. The only thing is, I can't have it the way I like it. It's hard trying to eat a well done steak...I have to hurry up and try to eat it in like 5 minutes otherwise it'll start getting tough and dry. I googled if it was ok to eat steak medium and many pregnant women say they eat their steak medium rare and medium...I don't know if I want to take that chance though. Do you eat your steak well done in pregnancy?
firstname.lastname@example.org - 31 days ago
Time is definitely flying by. This pregnancy seems to be going by faster than the ones with my other kids. Do you have any craving yet? I crave fruit and desserts. I have to eat fresh fruit and cake/brownies/cookies everyday
flybear - 32 days ago
Yay, it's hard to believe we're already far enough along to be scheduling that stuff. So exciting.. I can't wait for my appointment on Friday.
email@example.com - 34 days ago
My appt went good. I got a scan in the doc's office and I got a chance to listen to the heartbeat. I also got my referral for the anatomy ultrasound....I go in three weeks.
firstname.lastname@example.org - 35 days ago
My next appt is at 1:00pm today. I'm also looking forward to the mid pregnancy ultrasound
liltyke7 - 36 days ago
Yeah!! 15 weeks today. Next appt is Monday for a blood draw. Can't wait for 20 week ultrasound.
sleepymom - 70 days ago
bajot69 I get occassional headaches but they are mostly caffeine or water related. I have caved and taken tylenol when I get desperate and have to go to a function of some sort. Does tylenol help?Do your headaches make you nauseated?
sleepymom - 70 days ago
15 weeks today by my lmp, but u/s knocked me back a few days...so do I go by u/s or by lmp? happywoman what do you mean saliva? excessive saliva? I'm feeling pretty good, got the slightly stuffy pregnancy nose but otherwise not bad. Bit of ligament? pain sometimes and some shooting pains in my boobs here and there. I am looking forward to the midsize baby kicks (ie 25-34 weeks) but not looking forward to the uncomfortable wake you up during the night foot in the rib cage kicks at like 36 + weeks!!
happywoman84 - 70 days ago
15 weeks and this saliva is annoying!! 😡
email@example.com - 74 days ago

babylove5 - 131 days ago
I felt the first good kick this morning! I still don't feel the little movements when listening with my Doppler. He must have to kick really hard for me to feel it.
babylove5 - 131 days ago
