PREGNANCY WEEK 23
This week of pregnancy, your baby is over 8 inches in length and weighs a little over a pound.
Your baby's body is getting plumper, as he or she accumulates fat. Your baby's hearing is well established and he
or she can hear your heart beating, your digestive noises, as well as your voice. More below:
Changes in You:
Your belly definitely has a round appearance now. Stretch marks are common in pregnancy. If your
belly begins to itch, as your skin stretches; keep the area moist with lotion. Also, if you have itchiness, avoid
getting overheated, since anything that itches will usually itch more if you're warm.
