Your baby is growing
At 22 weeks, your baby will begin to look like a tiny newborn. He is now 11 inches and weighs nearly a pound. A lot of changes are happening. Tiny teeth buds develop under his gums. Even though his eyes have formed, there is no pigment in his iris. There is fine hair lanugo all over his body and his skin has deep wrinkles. What’s also developing is his pancreas inside his belly. This will be crucial for the development of important hormones.
