I was reading a book on the progress of our little one today. Normal size of the baby at this point is 7.5 inches long from head to rump. Holy cow! I have a big baby in me.
The part I don't get is that the baby only weighs about a pound and I have gained 15. Crazy!
My husband saw a picture of a baby in the womb, and he said this would have been the only time in his life he was flexible.
One fact I found interesting is that a baby girl by this point of her life has all the eggs that she will need for her reproductive years. How intriguing.
How far along? 22 Weeks
Movement: Oh, yes! And loving every second of the moving!
Symptoms: I have been feeling this pressure behind my ribs. I read today that it could be the little one's feet pushing on my ribs. Youch! I also had a time that I could feel the baby kick my bladder.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Looking forward to: Getting to have an ultrasound done on Monday. Can't wait to see our little one look like an actual baby and not a squirrel.
