The Pregnancy - Week 22

This is your 22nd week and you are in the middle of your 2nd trimester. You may have some breast pain. When you to your check-up this week, the doctor may check your weight. She may also do a urine test for sugar and albumin. She will check the height of your abdomen and with this, the Doctor will be able to judge the growth of the baby and gestational age of the baby.

 As the gestational age of the baby increases so does the height of the uterus. The doctor also checks your BP and may do an ultrasound to check for any abnormalities.

You may feel fullness in your abdomen. You should take a walk after every meal, this will help in digestion. You should not smoke and should keep away from people smoking for the health of the baby.

In the 22nd week, the baby’s eyes and lips are also beginning to be seen. Teeth may also be seen below the jawline and the brain would also be developing. Although the eyes are closed the baby is able to appreciate the light. The baby is growing and the weight will probably increase by 30 to 40 grams every week and would also be making many connections with the rest of the body. Baby’s sense of touch would also be developing and you can even feel the baby kick when you place your hand on your abdomen. A lot of branches called bronchioles are developing within the baby’s lungs.
