Week 22 {Development}




At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, Baby Suarez 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 Mommy’s 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.
