Pregnancy Home > 15 Weeks Pregnant

By the time you are 15 weeks pregnant, your baby weighs about 1.75 ounces. At this point, your baby's hair follicles may begin to produce pigment and his or her eyebrows and scalp hair may appear. When you are 15 weeks pregnant, you may be just starting to show. You may also be experiencing stomach pain, nosebleeds, and changes in your hair and skin. These are normal changes during week 15 of pregnancy.

15 Weeks Pregnant: An Overview

You are 15 weeks pregnant and now in your second week of the second trimester. For a lot of women, this is when they first begin to "look pregnant". If you don't yet, don't worry -- it'll come.
A tip -- if you are having trouble zipping your pants, try using a rubber band and wrapping it around the button, through the button hole, and back around the button. This "rubber band trick" will give you a little bit more time to find maternity clothes.
If this is not your first pregnancy, you may already "showing". This is because the muscles of the abdomen are not as strong, which may cause the uterus to fall forward more easily.
During week 15 of pregnancy, your baby is about 3.7 to 4.1 inches long and weighs about 1.75 ounces.
