23 weeks today

Celebrate my 23 weeks of pregnancy dengan makan penuh berselera *maaf no pic sebab lapar sgt & panas sebab dapat seat kat sempadan Czip Lee* di Restoran Sri Nirvana Maju Bangsar bersama suami tercinta. Suami tercinta hanya layan Mee Hoon Goreng kerana on diet :) Massive jem along the way cos ada a few accident. Hati saya sangat girang malah baby keep kicking, buat somersault tanpa henti :)

Alhamdulillah, I dont have any problem such bleeding gum. Lepas baik batuk & selsema semuanya ok. Selera makan bertambah2 okeh. My next checkup on 27th Jan, masa tu dah 25 weeks.

Your baby probably measures about 29cm from crown to heel. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing in preparation for breathing and she's swallowing regularly, though she won't normally pass a motion until after birth.

Your baby now weighs a little over one pound / 500 grams and measures about 11.4 inches/ 29 centimetres from crown to heel. Her hearing is well established and she can make out a distorted version of your voice, the beating of your heart and your stomach rumblings. Loud noises often heard in utero, such as the barking of a dog next door or the roar of a vacuum cleaner, probably won't bother your child when she hears them outside the womb. Some studies seem to indicate that the unborn prefer classical music.

In addition to advances in your baby's hearing, her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing. She's swallowing but she normally won't pass her first stool (called meconium) until after birth. If your baby were to be born now, she would have a small chance of survival (about 16 per cent) with the right care. Every day in the womb makes a difference at this stage. If she was born at 24 weeks her chance of survival would rise to 44 per cent. As for you, you may feel clumsy now that your centre of gravity has shifted. Your gums may bleed when you brush your teeth and your belly button, once an 'innie', may now stick out. Don't worry. It'll revert to its pre-baby state soon after you give birth. Source BabyCenter
