22 weeks, 3 days

Halfway through week 22 and all is well! A few highlights of our last 7 days:
  • Joey's back/hips are MUCH much better now that he's going to the chiropractor. He can already feel a difference in how he sits and stands, so hopefully he'll keep moving down the
    great path he's on.
  • Little-to-no progress has been made on the nursery since I posted those pictures 10 days ago. The hello-yellow closet is ready to be painted, it just needs someone (namely, me!) to throw the paint on the walls. Soon and very soon, I promise.
  • I got to go to the Nebraska game last Saturday! It was awesome. Well we played like we were in Junior High most of the game, but hey at least we won...
  • The fence in our backyard blew down, while Joey was in Minnesota for work, which made this pregnant lady not so excited. The dogs were chomping at the bit to RUN and they couldn't be outside off their leashes... Thankfully Joey's dad is a rockstar fence-fixer and had us back with a vertical fence in no time. Whew!

That's pretty much been our non-exciting week. I wish I had more fascinating things to tell you. :) Next week should be a little more fun-filled: we have another doctor's appointment on Monday, Thursday we start our 3 week "Baby Care" class, and then we'll head home for Renee's wedding! Oh, so exciting for you I'm sure. :)

Last but not least, baby developments for the week:

Your baby is nearly an entire foot long and weighs almost an entire pound! What's more they've started to produce their own hormones as their little pancreas continues to steadily develop.


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.
