Pregnancy Week 15

It is now 14 weeks from your last menstrual period. Your baby is now at 12 weeks gestation and is about 8.7 cm from crown to rump (11 cm or 4 1/2 inches head to toe) and weighs 45 gm.

Great News! The risk of miscarriage is now reduced substantially.

Lanugo, a soft downy hair, is beginning to grow and cover the baby’s body

Advice for Mom

Pregnancy requires that you take in about 60-80 grams of protein per day. Make sure you are getting enough.

You may want to discuss the ‘Triple Screen Test’ with your doctor. If you decide to have this test, the best time to do it is between 16 and 18 weeks from your last menstrual period.
