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.

    Found out we’re having our third girl! We kind of wanted another boy, but I just know she’s gonna be the cutest little thing. I’m just thrilled and can’t wait to see her.

    I am so thankful to be having another girl. I know my husband wanted a boy and so did every one else in my family BUT i am the only girl with 3 brothers and have always wanted a sister. I am thrilled that i am able to give my 22 month old daughter a sister. I hear a sisterly bond is magical and they will be close in age so they will be great best friends…until they hit the teenage years but hopefully they remain close during those years too =) 2 girls and now i am done! I don’t feel the need to try for a boy. I am perfectly content with my girls <3 and my husband is happy too =)

  22. Profile photo of McKenzie McKenzie says:

    So you can probably tell if you are having a boy or a girl at this point when you have an ultrasound done.

    Baby #4 will be exclusively cloth diapered. We’ve already ordered several. :)

    I thought about using cloth diapers but with three other kids around its just too much work. Buy pampers!
