Want to know something crazy? At 22 weeks, a baby is almost a pound and as long as a sheet of paper. At 22 weeks, her eyes have formed, although the irises lack pigment and therefore color. Any hair on the head is also white. The pancreas is forming. The little hands have developed bigger and stronger nerve endings, so she has a sense of touch in her fingers. He can also taste all the times that I eat in the amniotic fluid. (Source, source)
