Pregnancy - Week 15

Email Print

Your little baby's hair pattern will take shape and will stay the same for the rest of his life now. This week, lanugo starts to cover your baby's body in order to protect it from the amniotic fluid. This down-looking cover will disappear soon before or after birth.

Your baby is now the size of an orange and weighs up to 70 grams (2.5 ounces) and measures around 11 cm (4.5 inches) from crown to rump.

Already dreaming about that little crib and where it would go around your bedroom? Don't blame you.
