Week 22

Written by Shannon Leigh

At 22 weeks, Peanut was 11 inches long, the size of a Spaghetti Squash! Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows became more distinct, and she's even developed tiny tooth buds beneath her gums. The idea that she already has little tiny teeth makes me smile.
I am definitely liking this stage of pregnancy. I am energetic, sleeping well, and I can feel her move constantly. Sometimes she flip flops so hard that it takes my breath away. She's definitely moving up in my belly, about an inch above my belly button. I feel like I am "getting used" to being pregnant. I don't really remember what it was like to sleep on my stomach and bend over without feeling like I I can't breath. I guess that's a good thing since I've still got a long way to go.
