Does the gestation belong to the weeks?

23 weeks' gestation??

Help!

No apostrophe I think.

but you could reword it if you're not happy - 23rd week of pregnancy?

No apostrophe

Yes to the apostrophe because it's a temporal expression.

Yes you definitely need the apostrophe:

One day's pay
Two weeks' holiday

Yes - gestation of 23 weeks = 23 weeks' gestation

Thanks all. I went with the apostrophe.
