22 weeks

So I'm now 22 weeks pregnant with twins and I swear I'm changing daily.

Looking down I can no longer see my toes (I used to love my toes ... when housed in bright Choos or Pradas ... now I just hope my shoes match).

My ever-growing stomach also continues to be a surprising factor - I keep bumping into things (like door frames) forgetting what's going on up there.

Per Baby Center, here's what's going on in there:

How your baby's growing:

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.
