23 Weeks pregnant

Week 23 starts on day 161 and goes up to day 168. It is your twenty-fourth pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 30.5 centimeter / 12 inches
Weight of your baby: 500 grams / 1 lbs 2 ozs

Your pregnancy at 23 weeks 


What's happening with mum 

Swollen ankles and feet are common in pregnancy and you should make sure you try to keep your legs elevated while you are sitting down and take regular light exercise to keep the blood flowing.

It is also advisable to drink plenty of fluids especially water. Although swelling is common if this happens suddenly or is extreme and you have other symptoms please get in touch with your doctor as this could be an indication of preeclampsia.

Preeclampsia is a rare condition that pregnant women develop and is indicated by high level of protein in the urine and swelling in the feet, legs, and hands and usually appears after the 20th week of pregnancy


What's happening with baby

Your baby weighs over 1 pound now and will measure approximately 11 inches. This will soon change as it is estimated over the next four weeks his weight will double.

Baby's lungs continue to develop, even more rapidly this week as they begin to produce a substance called sufactant which will allow them to inflate and deflate without collapsing or sticking together. They will also practice breathing by moving amniotic fluid in and out of their lungs.
