Week 23 of pregnancy

Baby's growth

The baby's skin is thickening. It is normal that during this trimester the movements are somewhat erratic, afterwards they become more regular. It is a month of rapid growth.

Weight: 1 pound / Size: 11 1/2 inches

Changes in mother

Your abdomen may be hurting frequently, because your uterus is stretching more and more. Decrease your intake of chocolate and highly spiced foods (pepper, seasoning cubes, others) as well as fried foods and fats. Remember cereals with high fibre content and without sugar, which provide you with all the vitamins and minerals necessary for the better growth of your baby

It's good you know...

Doctors usually perform a blood test for diabetes (glucose tolerance curve) in pregnancy between 24 and 28 weeks. At your postnatal visit, you should discuss with your doctor which family planning methods are available and which are best. This will enable you to resume a healthy sexual life.
