Tomorrow (Tuesday), Baby Girl hits 22 weeks. You may or may not already know this, but the youngest baby ever known to survive out of the womb was born right at 22 weeks. Little Amillia Taylor was a pure miracle, as babies born before 24 weeks generally have a 0-3% chance of surviving, and most doctors won't even attempt to save a baby who is born that prematurely, until she is 23 weeks. Amillia weighed a whopping 9 ounces at birth (9.5 inches long), required 4 months in an NICU incubator, and a surgery to help her eyesight, but according to google, is now a healthy little toddler. Here is a picture of Amillia's tiny little feet- it's crazy to look at those and picture them inside my belly, because my baby girl is right around her same size right now.
And here is Amillia as a toddler, she is about 3 1/2 now although I don't know how old she is in this picture:
And because this wouldn't be a true weekly post without a fruit and a non-fruit size guide, here ya go:
Go Team Go! Your baby is about the
size of an over-inflated football.
And although I look awkward and large in this picture, here is a 22ish week picture of me and the belly, at Derek and Jessica's wedding:
