22 Weeks! - Mini Robby

Well, as you all know, we are having a beautiful baby boy! Before we know it, he will be here... I can't wait! Junior has gained about 1/4 of a pound and has grown another .4 inches! I can definitely feel him on a regular basis now. He's definitely going to be mover and a shaker... like his daddy!


Here's this weeks update.

Your baby now looks like a miniature newborn, checking in at 10.9 inches and almost 1 pound. His skin will continue to appear wrinkled until he gains enough weight to fill it out, and the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his head and body is now visible. His lips are becoming more distinct, and the first signs of teeth are appearing as buds beneath his gum line. His eyes
are developed, though the iris (the colored part of the eye) still lacks pigment. Eyelids and eyebrows are in place, and his pancreas, essential for hormone production, is developing steadily.
