Baby at 15 weeks is the size of a tomato. The baby's eyelids are still fused but the baby can sense light. Hearing is developing now and the baby might hear your muffled voice. The 15-week fetus has started to learn to make facial expressions and its tiny hands have started to make fists. 15-week ultrasound might show your baby's funny expressions. External genitals might be hidden due to the baby's position so 15 weeks pregnant ultrasound might be too early for gender reveal.

Body Changes

The uterus is growing and is rising above the pelvic region which is why few women might notice 15 weeks pregnant belly growing. Showing a 15 weeks pregnant bump depends on the type of body and history of pregnancies. A dark line running down your bump called 'linea nigra' might be visible. Ths line fades away after delivery.

Find your due date/Calculating your due date:

Unless you've been tracking your ovulation, for a health practitioner to exactly know when you ovulated and conceived is hard to say. Most women ovulate about two weeks after the first day of their period. So, to calculate a standard timing, most health practitioners calculate the due date from the first day of your last menstrual period.
