Week 23 according to

How Big is the Baby at 23 Weeks Pregnant?

Baby is positively HUGE during pregnancy at 23 weeks, a whopping 1.1 pound (or almost at least!). That is quite an accomplishment for someone that used to weigh less than one ounce. The baby at 23 weeks is now the size of a small baby doll you might purchase for a little girl. That's pretty impressive considering she could fit in the palm of your hand just a few short weeks ago. Baby is also about 11 inches long by pregnancy week 23!

The Baby's Growth and Development

Baby is still making remarkable changes at pregnancy 23 weeks. Her skin is still quite red and heavily wrinkled by the end of pregnancy week 23. She can often hear loud noises in the womb from now and as you continue your pregnancy week by week, so don't be surprised if she seems to move around a bit when you are vacuuming or in an environment where loud noises are quite common.
The bones located in her middle ear are starting to form by pregnancy week 23 and your baby is continuing to fill out and look more and more proportional.

No picture this week! No sites compare baby to size of fruit anymore. I did find one site that said that she weights about as much as a mango (1 lb) and about the length of a Harry Potter book.

I have my next doc appt on Tuesday (the 18th). Should be a pretty quick one - in and out. I think all they will do is listen to the heart beat and feel the size of the uterus from my belly. I will be sure to update how it went!
