22 Weeks

Yet another week has flown by! The bedding came and is in her crib. I'll wait to post pictures until we've painted and more of the details have come together. Baby Girl is moving around quite a bit these days and apparently my belly is past the point of looking like pudge and officially looks like a baby belly. Lots of comments this week from coworkers I don't see often and a few from strangers as well. It's definitely growing evidenced by the fact bending over isn't quite as easy as it used to be. Everything is still going well - I'm still feeling good and this Thanksgiving we are especially thankful for an easy and healthy pregnancy thus far. Here is what Baby Girl is up to this week...

At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. Her eyes have formed, but her irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers her body and the deep wrinkles on her skin, which she'll sport until she adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside her belly, her pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.
