My Pregnancy, Week 15

How big is your baby?

By the end of this week, your baby is 5 inches long and weighs a whole 2 ounces.

What is happening with your baby?

Your baby's skin is very thin, and his/her blood vessels can actually be seen through the skin. Your baby' ears are continuing to develop externally and continue to look more like normal ears. Your baby's eyes are continuing to move towards the nose from the sides of his/her head. The baby's bones are beginning to ossify, which means that if an x-ray was taken the skeleton would be visible. Babies at this age have also been caught sucking their thumb on ultrasound pictures.

Isn't this absolutely amazing? I'm still in awe how you get this tiny little human being out of an egg & sperm.
