Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week

What My Baby Looks Like in Week 23

By week 23 of your pregnancy, the fetus weighs about 1 pound. Look at the picture of your baby to discover more developmental changes.

Weighing about 1 full pound, your developing fetus is about the size of a mango. Most of the fetal internal organs are now in place and beginning to function well. Taste buds have formed but your developing fetus won't taste anything for several more months.
