What Week 15 of Pregnancy is Really Like | Week by Week | Parents

(upbeat bouncy music) – Can we get some
Backstreet Boys up in here? Oh, we can’t? Oh, it’s
like a million dollars? Okay, got it. Oh, close enough. Bust out that cassette tape from 1996, because you’re going to
need some workout music. Now’s the time to start strengthening your abs and pelvic floor
for an easier delivery. And, at week 15, your baby
is about the same size as your favorite old school jams. Not only that, he’s forming
taste buds, and maybe, just maybe, if the fetus
is in the right position, you can find out the baby’s sex at your next ultrasound appointment. So get moving! Right? That’s how you do
it. Something like that? Yeah, bust it out. Hot mama. (upbeat bouncy music) Of course your main concern is
having a happy healthy baby. But what happens if
you find out it’s a boy when you really wanted a girl? Gender disappointment is totally
a thing and totally normal. The best thing to do
when it happens to you, talk with your partner,
close family member, or a friend about it. And trust your ability
to love; no matter what. Gender is a social construct anyway, and it doesn’t really matter. (upbeat bouncy music) Why does your doctor keep
trying to steal your blood? Are they a vampire? Now that you’re in your second trimester, there are a few more tests you can do. They’ll include a
second-trimester screening which screens for down
syndrome, trisomy 18, and neural tube defects
such as spina bifida, and amniocentesis which is
usually offered to women over 35, or someone who had an abnormal
first trimester screening. And it screens for chromosomal
defects by extracting amniotic fluid from
the abdomen and uterus. And a glucose screen which
checks for gestational diabetes. Whoa, that was a lot of words. I deserve a treat. (laughs) Candy. Chocolate please. (upbeat bouncy music) People love to give pregnant women advice even when they didn’t ask for it. Here’s your daily dose
of unsolicited advice. If you’re worried about
anything, don’t Google it! You’ll only freak yourself out more. Just call your doctor, that’s
what he or she is there for. And definitely don’t Google image. (upbeat bouncy music) There’s a lot of stuff you’re expected to give up when you’re expecting. Join me now in a moment of silence as this pregnancy cause is dedicated to sleep. (snoring) Ah, shout out to sleep. A full undisturbed eight hours
is now a thing of the past. At least for the next 18 years. (upbeat bouncy music) If you want to learn more
