23 weeks already?

How far along? 23 weeks

Total weight gain: Let's just not talk about it today...

How big is baby? baby weighs about as much as a large mango -- just over a pound. (Length: more than 11 inches.)

Maternity clothes: Probably 95% maternity clothes now

Stretch marks: None so far!

Sleep: Last night I brought my huge college body pillow into bed with us. I slept like a baby!

Movement: This little soccer player loves to kick! Let's hope it doesn't mean she'll have mommy's soccer play legs when she grows up!

Food cravings: Not really this week

Food aversions: Meat still

Belly button: It is getting more shallow and wide, but still a deep innie

Symptoms: This is a new one that I am adding to the survey because honestly, aren't you curious? The newest symptoms are heartburn (thank God for Tums - too bad they are constipating!) and swelling. My right hand ring doesn't fit anymore. I'm hoping my wedding ring will last a month or two longer.

What I'm looking forward to: Still waiting on my first stranger comment

Weekly Wisdom: Sleep with a body pillow! Trust me, it makes a huge difference!

Weekly joy: I love when M rubs and kisses my belly!

This morning on the way to work I heard the song "Walking Her Home" by Mark Schultz. I've heard it before, but every time I listen to it, the lyrics make me cry. So, I thought I would share it with your all!

You can listen to it HERE.

Looking back
He sees it all
It was her first date the night he came to call

Her dad said son
Have her home on time
And promise me you�ll never leave her side
He took her to a show in town
And he was ten feet off the ground

(Chorus)
He was walking her home
And holding her hand
Oh the way she smiled it stole the breath right out of him
Down that old road
With the stars up above
He remembers where he was the night he fell in love
He was walking her home

Ten more years and a waiting room
At half past one
And the doctor said come in and meet your son

His knees went weak
When he saw his wife
She was smiling as she said he�s got your eyes

And as she slept he held her tight
His mind went back to that first night

(Chorus)
He was walking her home
And holding her hand
Oh the way she smiled it stole the breath right out of him
Down that old road
With the stars up above
He remembers where he was the night he fell in love
He was walking her home

He walked her through the best days of her life
Sixty years together and he never left her side

A nursing home
At eighty-five
And the doctor said it could be her last night
And the nurse said Oh
Should we tell him now
Or should he wait until the morning to find out

But when they checked her room that night
He was laying by her side

Oh he was walking her home
And holding her hand
Oh the way she smiled when he said this is not the end
And just for a while they were eighteen
And she was still more beautiful to him than anything
He was walking her home
He was walking her home

Looking back
He sees it all
It was her first date the night he came to call
