At 15 weeks your baby is approximately 4 inches long, and weighs approximately 2.5 ounces(about the size of an apple or a pear).
Baby’s legs are growing longer than its arms now, and can move all of the joints and limbs. Although the eyelids are still fused shut, it can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, for instance, it’s likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but the taste buds are forming. Your baby’s skin remains super thin, allowing developing blood vessels to show right through. By now, the ears are positioned properly on the sides of the head (they used to be in the neck) and the eyes are moving from the side of the head to the front of the face. You probably can't feel it yet, but a 15 weeks pregnant ultrasound would reveal that baby's squirming a ton in there, now that he or she is able to move all limbs and joints! Baby might even be hiccupping. Precious Images will now be able to tell you if you are having a girl, or a boy, if you want to know!!
Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. This information is to give you a general idea of your baby's size.
