Baby #3: 22 weeks

I'm feeling:
Tired again.  Afternoon naps have made a comeback.  Coffee in moderation has become a daily vice.  Nesting has become a desire, but I'm waiting to find out if it's a boy or girl!!!

Baby Center says:
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.
