Baby Update: Week 22

Magnificent Baby Update

How far along: 
22 weeks, 1 day
Fried Pickles!! Thank you Mr. M for taking me last Friday to Ed Walkers to get a yummy burger and some great pickles :)
I love it still. She kicks at some of the best times and sometimes it even makes me laugh :) 
Best Moment This Week: 
Finishing Magnificent Baby's Quilt. Oh wow, I have had that fabric for TWO years!! It is crazy but God knew when we would be pregnant and since I can't buy some of the fabric anymore (they don't make it), I guess having it was a great thing!
What I'm looking forward to: 
Taking pictures of a finished and beautiful nursery. 
What I miss: 
Being able to get out of bed in the morning without having to be strategic. As in, I can't just pop out of bed, I have to get to the edge of the bed, put my feet down and then push myself up. Yeah I know, you laugh but my bed is rather tall and if you haven't dealt with a growing person in you, I understand the giggles. 

   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. Just joined your blog! Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog to baby book. I got such a great response on it that I'm going to TRY to put together a little 'how to' on it. So stay tuned for it.
    p.s. I can totally relate to missing being able to get out of bed. I missed that one too when I was preggers.


Thank you for your comments, I may not get around to letting you know how much they mean to me but they make my day!
