22 Weeks

At 11 inches and almost 1 pound (about the size of a spaghetti squash), your 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 your 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.

It's hard to believe that I'm 22 weeks pregnant already. I'm starting to think about and work on the nursery more now. I was pretty devastated that the area rug I ordered for his room was the wrong color of blue. After thinking about it for hours I came up with a solution to make it work. This weekend we are going to pick out a crib and hopefully get it setup. Exciting stuff!!

Size of baby: Spaghetti Squash 

Total weight gain: Not sure I want to know :) 

Movement: Yes lots of it, I can see movement from the outside now which is so cool! Derek also felt a kick for the first time over the weekend.

Sleep: Sleeping well but it's so hard to get out of bed in the morning.

What I miss: Not missing much, everything is great right now. 

Cravings: Apple pie!! I saw some on TV the other day and I still can't get it out of my mind. 

Labor Signs: N/A

Maternity clothes: Pretty much all maternity besides my comfy clothes at home. 

Best moments this week: My birthday!! We celebrated over the weekend with a huge group of friends and family. My actual birthday was on Tuesday which was pretty low key. I made myself sick from going out to lunch with co-workers and having treats all day.
