Your Body at Week 15

You have probably noticed by now that your waist has become thicker and harder. You may even have a small bump as every woman is different and it is dependent on your body pre-pregnancy. Stretch marks are a common thing to worry about during pregnancy. However, they are not always preventable but applying moisturiser and pregnancy safe oils to your bump, may reduce them but not prevent fully.

Your Baby At Week 15 

Your baby’s eyes are developing nicely this week. Although they are, they are widely spaced the retina at the back of the eye has become sensitive to light. Your baby’s eyelids have also fully formed but will remain closed for most of the second trimester.

Week 15 TODO's

  1. As more pressure is being applied to your bladder, you may be more susceptible to infections such as thrush, which is very common during pregnancy. If you think you may have this, please contact your GP so it can be treated.
  2. If you want to be organised, start working out finances and setting budgets on essential items you will need for when your baby arrives.
