Week-by-Week Fetal Development

Week 15

Let the music play and be careful what you say as your baby could be listening.

Well he might not really understand what you say but his hearing capacity is in the process of developing. The three tiny bones in his middle ear have begun to harden but the auditory centres in his brain have not developed as yet so he might not be able to make any sense of the sounds. Also the amniotic fluid that he is in acts as a sound conductor, and so he will begin to hear the sound of your voice and your heartbeat. Do not stay hungry and be careful what you eat, as he will be able to hear your stomach rumbling too. It would be a good idea to hear soft, soothing music from this stage on as he may be able to pick on certain sounds from outside the womb. You could even sing to him. There have been cases of babies who, soon after birth can recognize a certain song, which was sung to them while still in the womb. It always helps to have a familiar voice or song that generally soothes your child whenever he is cranky or upset.

Your baby requires all the help that he can get in terms of nutrition and rest as all his energy is directed at growing bigger and stronger. This week he will have developed eyelashes as well as eyebrows and the hair on his head will have grown thicker. By now he should measure about five and a quarter inches or 13.5cm. and he probably weighs about three and a half ounces or 100g. Isn't he growing quickly?
