Pregnancy at 22 Weeks and 4 days

I am at 22 weeks and 4 days of my pregnancy. Everything is doing good and I am feeling good as well. I'm getting used to the discomforts that I always feel in my sciatic nerve. My tummy is getting bigger and bigger now. At 22 weeks, my baby is moving a lot and hubby can feel his movements more often too when he touch my tummy. Couple of days ago one of the exciting things that I have experienced was when I saw my tummy moved as I felt my baby move around inside my tummy. That was the first time I saw my little boy squirmed underneath my clothes when he moved. Hubby saw it too and got excited. My little boy is surely getting stronger and stronger each day coz his kicks and punches are getting harder and harder.

Here's a quick info from babycenter.com on what is going on at 22 weeks of pregnancy:


"At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, the 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".
