Baby development at 23 weeks. The outside world. Your baby can hear sounds from outside your body now, such as a dog barking. At first, your baby’s ears can hear only low-pitched sounds, meaning she can hear male voices more clearly than female voices.

At 23 weeks pregnant, your baby is about the size of a full grapefruit. The foetus is approximately 11.4 inches long and weighs about 1.1 pounds. You baby’s features are developing rapidly and with every passing day it looks more like a human being. The 23 week foetus is now listening to whatever happens around you and even reacts to them!At 23 weeks pregnant, the amniotic fluid that surrounds your baby is the perfect place for her to grow into a healthy newborn.

The salty fluid keeps her warm, protects her from infections, and is buoyant enough for her to exercise her developing body. You’re 23 weeks pregnant, and baby is as big as a grapefruit!

  • Just turn 23 weeks yesterday with a baby girl frist time mom too. I cant wait little by little she is moving! Enjoying my pregnancy journey ��

  • I can’t take any sort of prenatal vitamins. They make me vomit. I only took them for a whole month during the second month of my pregnancy. I’m 23 weeks and so far my doctor says my baby is healthy. I do eat healthy, lots of vegetables and whole grain. Healthy fats and no processed or junk foods.

  • I was lucky enough to see my daughter moving around from 18 weeks but she is definitely more active this week during the day when I am in a noisy environment:)

  • I’m 23 weeks and for first time feel really pregnant. my back is killing me but found relief taking halo shower..my stomach feels heavier now (twins)..worse part I feel congested and notice mucus accompanied by mild sore throat. is this normal? I’ve already contacted my doctor to see what he recommends.but I’m open to any safe suggestions.

  • my ultrasound result indicate that my baby’s femur measurement is a little bit shorter on his gestational week..even though im a nurse but still im very much worried for any chromosomal disorder or any complications may happen.

  • Hi… I am 23 weeks now but I like taking a bath with very hot water because I am used to it… Talking about not putting hot bottles on the bell, can my bathing with hot water harm the cells too. I am from Tanzania it’s not cold as in western countries, but I love hot water.

  • hello mam I am Divya Bapika I am carrying 23 weeks pregnancy. my doctor told me my baby position in my belly is like baby head is up side tummy. by how many weeks my baby head will be down? I am so worried about my baby position.

  • My feet hurt so much from any time on my feet, my dogs are suffering a bit… i also needed help getting up from the bottom shelf at the store…

  • 23 weeks and 4 days today she’s kicking more but I’m happy about it and specially that I’ll try VBAC after a year and a month from my previous c-section,I’m due in September 21/2020

  • hi my wife is 23 weeks pregnant and after our ultrasound the doctor said that the baby has a ecstatic left renal pelvis 0.8cm is that something to worry about????

  • I really love your videos. The “What To Expect” app has these really cheesy short videos with a very over excited host, i like your because they are longer and feel so down to earth, plus i get a lot of good and useful information. Thank you again!

  • I’m 23+3 and I have FINNALLLY got my energy back! I feel more myself now than I have felt in the whole pregnancy! Put some fake tan on, got some new maternity clothes and I feel fabulous ����!

  • im23 week pregnent nd every time i eat anything a little bitt i feel fuller cnt eat more but still hungry what to do and also have gastric prob with it too plz guid me what to do

  • check out my new pregnancy diary video about emotions during my pregnancy check it out like and comment and subscribe if you like check it out thank you in advance

  • The baby on the vid is much smaller… Please have some decency and post realistic images. Also the placenta doesn’t protect your baby from harmful substances. It’s a conduit for blood and anything that’s in mom’s blood will enter the baby’s circulatory system; of course except IgM antibodies (so very unfortunate!!!! Do your research to learn why this is so). Please keep your facts straight and stop spreading myths!

  • I’m 22 weeks pregnant and first time mom… I’m so excited �� I’m having a level 2 ultrasound next week.. I’ll see my baby for the first time… I hope everything will run perfectly ������

A beautiful little boy ��…still working part time as a server in a busy steak house and I’m finding it extremely physically difficult to work doubles the way I used to…I take a break instead of working 13 hours straight on my feet. But I’m so drained and my belly band barely keeps my jeans up…any one out there know of a super supportive belly band that’s adjustable perhaps??????? I’m a super small woman so it’s hard to find a tight fit

I’ve gained 6lbs so far and I don’t plan on gaining anymore coz I’m quite big myself n my belly’s already huge.
