22 Weeks pregnant

Week 22 starts on day 154 and goes up to day 161. It is your twenty-third pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 28.5 centimeter / 11.2 inches
Weight of your baby: 440 grams / 15.5 ozs

Your pregnancy at 22 weeks 


What's happening with mum 

Around now you might find yourself experiencing practice contraction pains, known as prodromal labor or Braxton Hicks. These false labour pains are caused by a tightening or contraction of the uterine muscle, thought to help the body prepare itself for the birth.

It is suggested that these infrequent, irregular mild cramp pains can be alleviated by good hydration, lying down on the left side and regular, rythmic breathing.


What's happening with baby

Until baby lays down a good layer fat he will appear wrinkly and pink although at this time his skin will begin to change and become less transparent and more opaque.

Baby's eyes and lips are more pronounced now and he may begin touching his face to explore his growing sense of touch or grip the umbilical chord to test out his new found strength.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I also have gone through the same. My heart goes out to you, your family and your angel Harper.

    At 22 weeks which is 5 months. I started with back pains and then stomach pains went to the doctor and they rushed me to the hospital. I was having contractions and already dilated. Gave birth to my beautiful baby girl. At 22 weeks they could not try to save her it`s only at 24 weeks that they will approve to save the child. There`s nothing more in the world more hurtful than losing a child. Please if u have had multiple miscarriages please make ur doctors look at ur cervix. Come to find out after 3 miscarriages and now a preterm pregnancy lose they found out I have an incompetent cervix. Which mean when the uterus is heavy enough UT cervix will begin to open and u go into Labor. 6.7.16 will forever be apart of my life as the worse day ever. Forever in loving memory my Harper Brooke Pillow. I love you my sweet angel ?
