22 Weeks

How big are the Harber girls?
About 11 inches, and about a lb. each. Roughly the size of a squash. :)

What's going on with the Harber girls?
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. 

I'm feeling great this week. :) Occasional back pain, but that's to be expected, especially with all the weight I'm carrying in the front.

Body Changes:
I've gained an additional 2 lbs last week. I'm hoping this weight gain slows down. But who knows. Apparently I've popped out a bit this week, because I got several comments from ladies in my yoga class.
