Pregnancy Calendar - Pick a Week!
23 Weeks Pregnant
Baby on board
Your baby is the size of a grapefruit!
Your baby is keeping themselves entertained by listening to the sound of your voice, and your heartbeat. It might be a nice idea to try reading or singing to your baby, to familiarise them with the sound of your voice, and give them something to listen to.
It might be time to start planning your nursery. You may want to pick out a colour or design now that you know the gender, or opt for a gender neutral theme. As easy as it is to get carried away with all the cute ideas you find on the internet, remember it needs to be practical. When you're up at 2am, you'll much prefer a comfy chair to sit and feed over an 'insta-ready' pile of scatter cushions, trust me!
Now that you're growing a bigger bump, you must consider seatbelt placement while driving. Driving in pregnancy is absolutely fine; however you should ensure the top part of your seatbelt goes over your collarbone and between your breasts, while the lower strap sits across your hips and thighs (under your bump).
