22 Weeks!

One more week has flown by, can you believe it?

How far along?: 22 Weeks
How big is baby?:   Your baby is the size of a banana squash (what is that?) or a papaya.  At 11 inches  and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath her gums.  Her eyes have formed, but her irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment.  Her pancreas is developing steadily this week.
Any appointments or updates this week?:  No, the next one isn't until a week from Monday.
Body changes?:  Not much.
Maternity clothes?:  Oh yes!  They are way more comfortable and fit better than any of my regular clothes at this point.  Even most of my pre-pregnancy sweaters and camis just aren't long enough. 
Best moment last week?:  On Sunday we went to the furniture store and ordered the baby's crib, dresser and night stand.  It should be here in 3-4 weeks!
Food cravings?: Too many sweets.  I think I might have overdosed the other night!  I had Oreos, cake and ice cream all in one evening.  Oops...
Symptoms?: Still having some trouble sleeping comfortably all night.  Leg/foot cramps don't help.
Exercise?: I went to a yoga class on Saturday, but unfortunately the class was a little too intense, even though I did some modifications and took breaks.  I ended up with a lot of soreness later that day.  Luckily it went away by the next day but from now on I guess I have to take it easier. 
What I miss?:  Having a glass of red wine if I want one. 
What I'm looking forward to?: Working on the nursery and other craft projects!  

What our little girl looks like this week:


  1. Ah, she's getting so big! And Oreos... yum!

  2. 22 weeks!!! Ekk! It's going to fast!
