You are about 11 inches long

You are 22 weeks today! I almost forgot the count :)

Today a very cute thing happened in the morning. While enjoying nice cool breeze in our living room with your bhaiyya cuddling next to me,  your bhaiyya asked me if you are awake. When I told him no, he started to talk to you wishing you a good morning and asking you to wake up as its morning now. He said "Wake up baby. Subah ho gayee...ab aap uth jayo..." and he said it couple of times in different ways and suddenly you kicked. You actually woke up!! :)

When I told this to your bhaiyya, he was very happy. He gave you a good morning kiss and did "gooji...gooji"  (the sound he makes for tickling) to you. I had to make him stop as I was very ticklish. Then he continued his conversations with you and you responded again.I love this bond developing between you two already. And I hope it stays as amicable even when you both are together :)

The weekly newsletter tells me that you are about 11 inches long and almost 1 pound. Your lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and tiny tooth buds are developing beneath your gums. Your eyes have formed, but the irises still lack pigment. It also tell me that if I could see inside your womb, I'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that cover your body and the deep wrinkles on the skin, which you'll sport until you add a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside your belly, your pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.

Grow up nice and healthy my shona!
