6 months, that is how long you have been pregnant if you are 23 weeks into it. The wait is getting shorter as less than 100 days are left for your baby’s birth. Did you know, your baby is now as big as an eggplant?
We know how exciting it must be getting for you now. Here is a sneak peek into your baby’s fetal development this week:
Your baby is around 11 inches long from crown to heel and weighs over a pound now, which is basically the same as an eggplant.

The skin is a bit saggy still due to the less amount of fat deposits but it will fill in soon within the next 4 weeks and make your baby plump and chubby.
The skin is translucent now with a red hue and that is due to the newly formed arteries and veins.
The placenta is highly developed and is helping the baby with oxygen supplements and taking out the waste.
Your baby can hear outside sounds well enough now. Even a dog barking too. Though at first only low-pitched sounds are clearer to the baby which means he/she can hear male voices more clearly.
