22 Weeks (5 1/2 months)

At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound (if not more), our baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside my womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

Time is flying!! I can't believe how fast its going. I'm still feeling good, some days are better than others but overall it good. I'm feeling A LOT of movement, he tells me when it's time to eat and after I have eatten that he is happy. I think that you can start to feel the movements from the outside. He seems to sleep when I'm asleep so thats nice.

Thanks for reading!
