Week 22

How your baby’s growing:

Your baby now looks like a miniature newborn, checking in at 10.9 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound.


His skin will continue to appear wrinkled until he gains enough weight to fill it out, and the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his head and body is now visible. His lips are becoming more distinct, and the first signs of teeth are appearing as buds beneath her gum line. His eyes are developed, though the iris (the colored part of the eye) still lacks pigment. Eyelids and eyebrows are in pl

ace, and his pancreas, essential for hormone production, is developing steadily.

I’m still waiting to feel his first kick. Amanda is feeling it all the time, and she says he does these weird rolls from time to time. But everytime Daddy gets near, he doesn’t kick big enough for me to feel it.

Stubborn boy. He’s already like his dad.
