22 weeks pregnant

What's happening this week...

22 weeks pregnant baby

Your baby

Your little one now measures around 27cm from head to toe and is growing eyebrows and eyelashes. He or she can now hear when you talk – try singing or reading to them and see if you get any kicks in response.

They may be constantly touching their face or grasping the umbilical cord.

Your baby will be starting to store fat beneath their skin, this is vital to the development of the nervous system.

As your baby swallows amniotic fluid their body has stores the waste as meconium. This is the green/black poo that most newborns produce in their first 24 hours.

You

As a 22 week pregnant mum-to-be, you may find this is an enjoyable time of pregnancy – the aches and pains are fading and 22 weeks pregnant weight gain isn’t enough to make you feel uncomfortable.

Your uterus may be above your belly button now but women’s bumps vary in size during the same week of pregnancy.

You may find you’ve become forgetful and frequently lose your train of thought. The jury’s still out on whether ‘baby brain’ really exists, but some women are sure of it!

Vaginal bleeding can happen for a number of reasons. If you experience any bleeding during pregnancy at all, visit your midwife or doctor to be on the safe side.

What to think about

Parents-to-be may put off buying baby equipment, like buggies and car seats, until later in the pregnancy but that can be quite demanding and tiring. So make use of your energy and begin to think about what your baby will need.

You might want to consider thinking about baby names. Although many parents wait until their babies are born, it may be an idea to have a think about what you would like to name your baby.

The results of your amniocentesis test may be returned this week, if there’s any thing you’re unsure of make sure you talk this through with your midwife or doctor.

Check out our handy checklist to make sure you've ticked off everything you need for your precious new arrival.

hi there all, im 22 weeks today with my third child i already have two boys age 11 and 5 and found out on friday that we were having a little girl. everything is going great so far so excited been buying alot of cute pink outfits just cant wait to see my bundle of joy for the first time. bump seems to be growing more and more each day i think i look 8 months pregnant already lol...anyway wish you all the best and good luck :)

Hello Ladies :)

I have seen that many of you are at the same stage of their pregnancies (22 weeks) - congratulations to all. During my 20 week scan the midwife told me that my placenta is low and am booked for another scan at 32 weeks, didn't find out the sex, as the anticipation is more exciting - well I think so anyway (however I have got a feeling it is going to be a boy). The only thing that concerns/worries me is that I had been told that my baby was rather small (on the picture of the scan I could see 12cm - was that the size of the baby?? - I only looked into it after the scan and it was too late for questions). My husband and I are not the tallest of people, so perhaps I should not get too stressed about it, also don't find my bump that big at 5 months...ohh worries of first mummy-to-be! I am sure I am not the only one?? Regards to all Hanna

22 weeks bleeding

Hi all mummies to be, I am a new member here. I'm 22 weeks pregnant and I keep spot bleeding. I have been to the hospital and everything seem to be ok. Since the last visit to the hospital I haven't stopped spot bleeding. Shall I be concerned and go back to the hospital? X

Hi all, this is my very first

Hi all, this is my very first comment page ive joined in on since ive known i was pregnant! Its nice to have people around experiencing the same things :-) Im 22 weeks today and had my scan last thursday, me and daddy were so scared before going in but was so relieved that all was fine when we left! Only thing was that my placenta was lying low over the cervix, dont know if any of you other ladies have the same thing at all? But appparently its quite common and should move up over time, i have to return at 32 weeks for another scan, at least ill get to see littlen again! :-) Its our first baby and we didnt want to find out the sex, will be a nice suprise on the day we think. :-) x

It's a Boy... i'm 22 weeks

It's a Boy... i'm 22 weeks today and have been feeling him move around for about 4 weeks now, we had a 4D scan last week and i now have a picture of his little face with all his features - totally amazing to see him moving around and great to get a double check that everything's ok in there. Now to think of some boys names as we were convinced it was a girl lol

Everything all seems fine and laura0686, my little one was also very low hiding in my pelvis so don't worry, during my scan they had to tilt me to try and get a good look of her lol. Now at 22 weeks she is kicking and punching on a daily basis (mainly at night) and sometimes makes me jump with how powerful she is! x

Hello everyone. I'm 22 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I had the 20 week scan and everything was ok and also found out that I am having a little girl. Am absolutely thrilled. Weesuzie please don't worry about not feeling your baby moving yet. I can't feel mine either. It can sometimes take up to 25 weeks before we can feel them move. Everyone is different. I hope you have not been worrying.

hi all this is my first time

hi all this is my first time posting on here, I'm 21wks +4 days with my second baby, its another boy which I'm really excited about, a little brother for my son who's 4 at the moment :) @hannahanddaveybaby I'm also a full time student and have been worried about money issues, also feel bad for my partner as the financial strain is mainly on him. I'm not going back into study until sept 2013 so I'm going to look at getting a part time job until then. But I guess you just have to trust you'll get by somehow :)

My bump is huge

Hi, this is my second pregnacy and it's so different to my first. I found out I'm having a girl and already have a 2 3/4 year old boy. I'm feel very uncomfortable already, my bump is really big. People keep commenting on how big I am and if I'm having twins! I'm worried that I'm going to be the size of a house. I'm 21+6 wks

I am also 22 weeks, and we

I am also 22 weeks, and we are expecting a boy, we already have a name for him. He always responds by kicking and moving whenver he hears his daddy's voice..t touches my heart all the time.

im 22 weeks and 2days now and

im 22 weeks and 2days now and im happy that im have a baby boy and i love baby shopping with my boyfriend and we have a baby name now

22weeks movement

BabyRobin2012 I'm the same...22 weeks with a little girl and she barely moves, she did from 18 weeks, but now she's less active. I'm sure she will perk up again when she's bigger and doesn't have as much room. I'm trying not to worry when I don't feel her for a while.

first time pregnancy

I am 1st time mum to be and I am worried about some things. I was born deaf and would like to know how other deaf mothers had help during pregnancy and after birth. Equipment/advice/facilities etc

i was 22 weeks on sat aswel

i was 22 weeks on sat aswel lauren and mine is also a girl! my bump is gettin a bit more noticeable now. im sure our motherly instincts will kick in and we will just know what they want and sometimes they just want comforting they are babies after all so they will cry!! xx

Not showing yet..

Don't panic! I'm 20 weeks pregnant and not showing. Several people have asked me if it's a phantom pregnancy! I'm 6' tall, apparantly long bodies hide the bump for longer as it spreads up inside before going out! I guess short bodies have nowhere to go but out so have bigger bumps!

hi guys i am 22 weeks tomorrow and i found out i am having a girl we are so excited. this is our first baby and my bump is really big, i feel her move around all the time. i am really scared about not doing something right for her when i bring her home or not knowing what she wants can anyone give some good advice and help : ) x

Very excited to be mum to another little boy :) we feel blessed x

hi

Just had my 20 week scan, they said 75% girl which im excited bout as i already have two boys, but also worrying it comes out a boy so don't no weather or not to buy girl clothes or not,also my last child weighed 10lb 6oz so worried this will be bigger.

22 weeks and terrified about labour..

Hi guys, i'm guessing i'm not alone here when i say that i'm TERRIFIED about labour.. I wish i could opt for a C section, as i really don't know how i will cope with child birth. I'm 19 in 2 weeks' time, 5'10 and a size 8.. People always say how small my bump is, and it upsets me terribly! I think i'm showing quite a lot, and my baby boy is gonna be big.. But who knows.. Would love to chat with anyone to be honest, i stress so much about the size of bumpy and labour - need some help! <3

Hi kelly. In same situation

Hi kelly. In same situation as you. At 20 week scan they said i had a low posterior placenta previa and it was touching the opening of the cervix. Been advised to take it easy and will be re-scanned at 28 weeks to see if it has moved up as the uterus lifts and expands. Otehrwise will be c-section for me. Fingers crossed and good luck for you too!
