Baby at 23 Weeks Pregnant
At 23 weeks pregnant baby’s ears are working now. He might squirm if he hears a loud noise. Bones are continuing to harden…milk was a good choice. And his skin is getting some pigment; he’s finally not translucent like he was a few weeks ago.
Let’s be honest, see-through is cool for things like toasters and teen phones from the 90’s, but not so much in humans.

Her body is amazing. And we’re not just talking about boobs. Her mom bod is adapting to nurture and grow this new life. She may be in the early stages of developing something known in the medical community as “cankles”.
If it looks like her body is a bit swollen, it’s because she’s probably retaining more fluids than usual. This will only get worse as the pregnancy progresses.
Encourage her to drink, drink, drink (water)! See if you can drink as much or more water than her.
The times, they are a-changin’. So is her body. Remember to tell her how well she’s rocking that pregnancy bod.

What time is it? Time to plan a date night. Those will get more difficult to schedule before you know it. And, they’ll also cost almost twice as much. Nowadays babysitters don’t work for a nickel like back in our day.
It’s a good idea to exercise together, but encourage her to take it easy. Working out is great, just don’t be training for an Ironman together.
Pregnant women often pass gas without being able to hold it in. If your partner does this, don’t try to one-up her by letting one rip yourself.
