15w3d: Life in the Utero

While wife continues with her headaches, the baby continues its growth.

Now the size of an apple, a cupcake, or an orange, he is rapidly racing to the finish line.

His (or her) immune system is ramping up with the formation of T cells. Lots of gut chemicals can be detected, including bilirubin from the liver and insulin from the pancreas. The baby is already developing skin, hair, nails and swallowing continues.

The entire body can also sense touch now.

The wife is highly recommended to see the dentist as her teeth are extremely vulnerable during this time of calcium absorption and nutrition being diverted to the baby. If he is not being given proper doses of calcium, it will be taken from the mom's supply without permission.
