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.

    22 wks 1 day with my little girl she has some kidney issues and just found out the ds risk increases with her fetal pyelectasis :/ but she’s been moving hard enough for her daddy to feel her since 14 wks because she’s breech as well. Extremely active it’s nothing for me to lay down & her move at least 40 times last week she moved 77 times in 2 hours! Just so happy to be pregnant with my little princess
