Baby at 22 weeks.

First of all I know I missed a week. I am sorry. With the holidays and such I got busy. Plus we had a hospital visit inbetween. Nothing serious, more me being paranoid. I am freak with this pregnancy. I work on a Labor and Delivery Unit and see everything. So I think that makes it worse. I didn't stress and freat like this with Kaylee. Anyways nothing new to report. I am in the process of getting clothes ready to go through and getting rooms setup for kaylee and the baby. Slowly buying boy stuff. Other than that not much else going on right now in our lives.

Here is this last weeks baby info:
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.
