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 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?

    • Avatar of dulce dulce says:

      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.
