Week 22 - Squash

Week 22
From Baby Center

"At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your 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."
I'm doing pretty good. I haven't slept well in the past 2 nights, I end up on the couch. Last night I woke up at 1:20am, laid in bed until 2:00 and then got up and took an Ambien and went to the couch. It's not like my "normal" insomnia, that's usually due to my thoughts/worries or whatever, this is just like its 7:00am and time to wake up. Weird. I'm also having some abdominal pain, I've called the doctor today just to make sure it's ok. But, other then that, no complaints. It could be much worse.
