22 weeks (and 4 days)

Lazy blogger so you're getting this post at 22 weeks 4 days instead of 22 weeks. Oh the shame.

So, yeah, I'm 22 weeks pregnant. WOW! I think each week I'll just keeping saying wow. Just wait until I'm giving birth, that will be a WOW!

So, what's Li'l P up to this week? Lots of movement, that's for sure. Jake can visibly see the kicks and feel them. It's great to be able to share those moments with him. It makes us a giggle quite a bit. Li'l P has also been giving me indigestion. Nothing terrible, just makes me burpy.

According to Li'l P is ....

How your baby's growing: At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, 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.

1 pound?!?! Grow, kid, GROW!
