We've reached the 22 week mark and everything is still moving along nicely. I've felt Cooper move for a while now but got my first official kick the other morning. Apparently, he had no desire to wake up! Hmmm... I wonder where he gets that from?
In other news, the sleeping like a rock that I have experienced up until this point is no more. I toss and turn all night and my brain is continuously going a million miles an hour. We registered yesterday at Babies 'R Us and I think that gave me even more anxiety. Last night when I was able to finally fall asleep (around 2am), I had a dream that the baby arrived and we had nothing for him. No car seat to bring him home in, no bassinet for him to sleep in, nothing! I know that we have plenty of time and I need to take a deep breath and relax. I'll work on that!
"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."
He's growing like a weed! Hope that you all have a great week!
