Now you 15 weeks pregnant you have been sitting there for 105 days! Your baby keeps growing nicely and now has the size of an apple (11 centimeters) and weighs 90 grams. The little uk is becoming a real person. The ears are now in the right place of the head and no longer in the neck. The eyes have also been moved forward. The bones grow well in the length. The head of your baby is about as big as a marble and the hands have the size of a little pea.
The baby is really moving
Your baby is really moving. In this way the muscles become stronger and stronger. If you have had children before, it is possible that you already feel something, but usually this will take a few weeks. Because your baby is really in motion, he sometimes swallows some amniotic fluid. This gives him or her the hiccups. This process is a good exercise to breathe later and to be able to swallow and suck. Read more about this in my baby has the hiccups.
