My Pregnancy Week 22

Pregnancy Week 22

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. She is now about the size of a large banana, measuring roughly 7 1/2 inches long, and can weigh up to 15 ounces. In the coming weeks, your baby will continue to grow and mature at a fast rate. By week 22, her pancreas, a key player in hormone production, is developing steadily. Her skin may appear wrinkled at this point, but in the coming weeks, she will be gaining enough weight to fill it out.

His eyes have developed, but the irises still lack color. Even though his irises will have color by the time he is born, you won’t know his permanent eye color until he is at least nine months old. Most parents wait until their child’s first birthday to determine what their child’s permanent eye color will be. If your baby is a boy, his testes have begun their descent from the pelvis to the scrotum.

    I will be 22 weeks in 2 days & it’s a girl! This is our 4th little miracle, 3rd girl for us! This baby will be spoiled because her older siblings are MUCH older (they’re 15, 16, & 20!!!) and they’re very excited for a baby!

    22 weeks pregnant and baby number 2 for my Fiancee and I! We have a 21 month old daughter, and soon we”ll be adding our little man to our family! Im so excited. Ive noticed that he moves alot more at night before I go to bed and during lunch time. Does anyone else have any specific time they can feel their little moving around more?

      I have the same feeling sometimes she moves so much that is hard to fall asleep

    • Avatar of Cerrissa Cerrissa says:

      I don’t know of a specific time that movement is most frequent but I tend to wonder the same thing. in the evening I do experience or notice more movement. I was told that during the day it happens and I just don’t notice because at work I’m moving myself.

    Yes we are having a baby boy! This is my first baby, and I find these weekly updates to be pretty cool and interesting. Love this site!

  21. Avatar of Yvonne Yvonne says:

    My first baby, exciting stuff. Am getting worried though. I could feel the baby kick for most of last week, but for the past four days i haven’t really felt her kick (we think it’s a girl, we’ll know for sure next week!). IS THIS NORMAL? Please help.

    • Avatar of Kim ShannonEditor Kim Shannon says:

      Hi Yvonne! A lot of doctors say that if you’re really worried, to start keeping track of when movements are/aren’t happening and counting how many movements you do feel when there is movement. If it takes longer than two hours for you to count ten movements, it’s suggested that you call your doctor. I hope this helps to ease your mind!

    • Avatar of Tina Tina says:

      This is my first baby so I wouldn’t just go off of what I say, but I’ve noticed that sometimes I feel my baby move alot and other times I won’t feel him move at all. This worried me too. If you still haven’t felt anything I would contact your doctor. It could also be that your baby is on a different schedule than you meaning maybe the little one is moving around when you are sleeping and you just don’t notice. Remember they are in a womb they have no idea what’s going on in the outside world or even what the outside world is for the matter. I do hope everything is ok with you and your baby though.
