I thought I would post about what's happening with our little Itty Bitty right now during week 22! I get a week by week update from Welcome Home Baby Its fun and exciting to read all thats happening with our developing baby.
So this is what I was sent for this week.
~Your baby now weighs about 12 oz (350g) and is over 7 inches long (19cm). Baby continues to grow, eyelids and eyebrows are developed, and nails are also visible. The amniotic fluid is replenished on a daily basis; in fact about a third of the fluid is exchanged every hour. Your baby swallows the fluid and some of this fluid is absorbed back into your body via the umbilical cord and placenta. The rest is simply urinated back into the amniotic fluid. Baby uses its 'bathwater' as its drinking water. While some of its nutrients are provided by the amniotic fluid, bulk of the nutrients comes from the placenta.~
