How far along? 23w3d

Baby is the size of a... papaya
Baby's development of the week: Per Babycenter: And now that she's more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound, you may be able to see her squirm underneath your clothes. Blood vessels in her lungs are developing to prepare for breathing, and the sounds that your baby's increasingly keen ears pick up are preparing her for entry into the outside world. Loud noises that become familiar now — such as your dog barking or the roar of the vacuum cleaner — probably won't faze her when she hears them outside the womb.
Maternity clothes? All bottoms, most maternity shirts. Still getting away with longer tank-tops or t-shirts.
Sleep: It's still hard to stay comfortable most nights -- and the whole "up all night having to pee" thing -- but sleep still doesn't totally suck. It's definitely getting harder to stay comfortable, though.
Best moment this week: Ethan started giving my belly kisses. "Can I give baby _____ a kiss?" may be my favorite question he's ever asked. And he's almost 3, so he sure asks a ton of questions. Food cravings: Milk! Which is gross. Ketchup! Which is grosser.
Food aversions: No real aversions still. Some things just don't look appetizing, but I'm hardly sick when it comes to eating like last time.
Baby's Sex: She's a girl!
Baby's Name: ...is a secret!
