Fetal development in pregnancy week 22:fetus in fifth month The grow must go on! No wonder you’re getting so big, you’re now housing a wonder-baby who weighs nearly a pound and measures nearly a foot in length. Their perfect little pancreas is now further developed and they’ve also started producing their own hormones! Your baby's future in the circus as a world-famous tight-rope-walker is secure: their inner ear is now developed to the point that they have their own sense of balance. Lucky for your little explorer, balance also promotes physical dexterity, which has them actively feeling out their surroundings where skin, body parts, and the resident umbilical cord are the big sensory experiences. Your foot-long baby, is looking a bit like an oversized raisin right now as more and more wrinkles are showing up each week. Not to worry, all that excessive wrinkling is just their skin’s way of planning ahead for the time when they’ll start piling on that irresistible baby chub.We had a doctors appointment on Wednesday were we went over the 18 week sonogram and everything checked out, the computer came up with a due date of August 28th so pretty close to the 29th like we were originally told, but we shall see how accurate that ends up being. Jason and I are into our 3rd week of Bradley classes (Natural Child Birth) and are enjoying those. We are taking the class with our friends, the Hartl's, and we are enjoying the other 2 couples in the class as well. Everything on the house is moving right along and it wont be too long before we have the baby room painted. We finally found baby bedding that we like http://www.brandeedanielle.com/ModernBabyBoyCaffeBabyBedding-3.aspx so now we have registered for the bedding and at Baby's R Us and Target. [That was a task]. Becky and I had great success maternity shopping last weekend so now I will be a fashionable (I guess as fashionable as it gets) pregnant woman.
