At 23 weeks your baby is approximately 11.4 inches from head to toe(about the size of a large mango), and weighs approximately 18 ounces.
Now that the bones in your baby's ears have hardened, it can make out a distorted version of your voice, the beating of your heart, and stomach rumblings. The lungs are developing to prepare for breathing. If your baby were born now, it would have a good chance of survival.
Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. This information is to give you a general idea of your baby's size.
