Week 23 (Started Sunday) *118* Days To Go

Your baby is about 8 inches (20.3cm) from crown to rump and weighs almost 1 pound (454g). The body is becoming proportioned more like a newborn, but skin is still wrinkled because your baby still has more weight to gain. Lanugo hair on the body sometimes turns darker.
Your round belly is definitely noticeable by now. Weight gain will be about 12 (5.4kg) to 15 pounds (6.8kg). Vaginal secretions that are typically clear-to-yellowish with a faint smell increase during pregnancy. Check with your practitioner if the color or odor changes significantly since it could signal an infection. You may still have aches in the small of your back. Lying down, massages and applying a heating pad or hot water bottle to the area can help.
Tip for the week:
As your skin continues to stretch, it may become dry and itchy. Keeping it moist with lotions or cream can help reduce these symptoms.
