We are back to school this week...actually tomorrow, but Noah starts his extracurricular class today, Katie starts hers Thursday. Today it really jumped out to me that we have less time to go than we have put in so far...as in...a countdown. 22 weeks over, 18 to go (maybe less?). We have a TON to get done around here. I have cleaning out, organizing, and planning to do. I haven't taken medication for sickness in a couple of weeks now, maybe once in that time. The energy is slowly coming back. I have days that I get a ton done, then days when I take two naps and feel beat all day.
Here's more about week 22:
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. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers her body and the deep wrinkles on her skin, which she'll sport until she adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside her belly, her pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.
