I'm now in my 15th week of pregnancy. I'm 37.5% of the way there! Sadly, over the weekend I had the flu. Now I know how it is to be sick and pregnant and its not fun. I am definitely feeling a lot better today. Thank God! Having the flu is one thing, but when you're pregnant, it is just horrible. I was worried if my baby was going to be okay while I was in the worst physical state. The flu lasted all Sunday and on Monday I was starting to feel a little better. I didn't call the doctor, but maybe I should have. Does anyone think I should have?
Fetal Development At this stage my baby may be sucking his/her thumb. This might be noticeable if I have an ultrasound now. The baby's bones are getting harder each day. The skin is very thin and transparent; you can see blood vessels through the skin. A very fine hair, Lanugo, covers the body and will continue growing on the baby until around the 26th week of pregnancy.
Maternal Changes Any time now my uterus will begin rising past my hipbones. It can be felt three to four inches below my navel. My OB should will be measuring "fundal Height" to make sure the baby is growing consistently and adequately. Fundal Height is the distance from the top of the uterus (fundus) to the pubic bone.
If anyone is curious to find out their baby's sex you can get an "educated guess" within the next few weeks by having an ultrasound. I think I'll pass and find out when my baby is born.pregnancy baby pregnant new born children infant weekly pregnancy weekly maternity expecting due date parenting labor mother newborn fertility childbirth family 15 week 15 15 weeks
