The Pregnancy - Week 23

This is Your 23rd week. Till now the baby looks very shrivelled as the baby still has not got much fat in its skin and the skin seems transparent, and we can see the blood vessels through the skin. But as time passes, more and more fat gets deposited under the skin and the baby gains weight and by birth is nice and chubby. baby is 11 inches long and 500 grams in weight by the end of this week.

The uterus may be felt slightly above the umbilicus. You may be seeing some stretch marks on your abdomen. Stretch marks are because of the pregnancy hormones and also because of the stretching of the abdominal skin. They usually disappear after pregnancy. I am sure you are enjoying the movements of the baby in your abdomen. Every time you feel the movement of the baby It could be so thrilling and will remind of the little life which is growing in your abdomen. This time of pregnancy is probably the most thrilling part of pregnancy.

You may feel a little constipated and also have swelling in your legs, this is because of the accumulation of fluids. You should remember to walk every day as being active and doing some exercises during pregnancy will help you, in easy delivery and also in going back to your pre-pregnancy weight after delivery.
