Week 15 of Pregnancy: A Comprehensive Guide

Congratulations on reaching week 15 of your pregnancy! This is an exciting time as your baby continues to grow and develop rapidly. Your body is also undergoing significant changes to accommodate your growing baby.

Fetal Development

At 15 weeks, your baby is about the size of an apple. Their head is still large in proportion to their body, but their facial features are becoming more defined. The eyes are now fully formed and the ears are beginning to take shape.

Your baby’s limbs are also growing longer and they are starting to move more. You may even be able to feel their tiny kicks or flutters. The baby’s heart is beating strongly and their lungs are beginning to develop.

Your Body

Your uterus is now about the size of a grapefruit and it is rising out of your pelvis. This can cause your abdomen to become more noticeable. You may also experience some abdominal discomfort, such as bloating or gas.

Your breasts are also continuing to grow and you may notice that your nipples are becoming darker. You may also experience some breast tenderness or leaking.

Other changes you may experience during week 15 include:

  • Increased fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Constipation
  • Heartburn
  • Mood swings
  • Increased appetite

Prenatal Care

At your 15-week prenatal appointment, your doctor will likely perform a physical exam and check your weight, blood pressure, and urine. They may also order blood tests to check your blood sugar and hormone levels.

Your doctor will also discuss your diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits. They will answer any questions you have and provide you with information on prenatal vitamins and supplements.


Eating a healthy diet is essential for both you and your baby. During week 15, you should focus on eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. You should also limit your intake of processed foods, sugary drinks, and unhealthy fats.


Regular exercise is another important part of a healthy pregnancy. Exercise can help you stay fit, reduce stress, and improve your sleep. You should aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.

Lifestyle Habits

There are a few lifestyle habits that you should avoid during pregnancy, including:

  • Smoking
  • Drinking alcohol

  • Taking certain medications
  • Getting too much caffeine
