Pregnancy Week 15
Your baby’s legs are growing longer, and he can move his limbs a lot more. His mouth also starts to develop taste buds and while there is little use of them, they get connected to the brain through nerves. Fully developed genitals are present, but may not be very visible at this point.
Mom, heartburn, and possible nosebleeds due to high blood volume pumping through your body can be expected. The muscles in your stomach are relaxing allowing acid to rise, antacids work but in more severe cases the use of medication would be recommended by your doctor. You may also feel shortness of breath as your belly grows, and your gums can swell, good dental hygiene is a must during pregnancy.
Ultrasounds will show an active baby, even though you may still be unable to feel movement. Some mothers feeling tiny movements, this is called ‘fluttering.’
