Your 22 weeks pregnant!!
126 days to go!
Baby is measuring: 10.9 inches & 15.2 oz 📏
Size: Papaya or Coconut
Now that baby’s got more developed eyes and lips, he or she’s looking even more like a newborn. 👀
Baby’s sleeping in cycles- about 12 to 14 hours per day (hint: they’re probably those times you’re not feeling any kicks!)
Your baby’s muscles are growing and becoming stronger every day, and your baby is now moving, kicking, stretching, and generally responding to sounds, flavors, light, and touch. 🤗
His or her’s entire little body is covered in fin, fur-like lanugo hair (don’t worry, if you carry to term it will usually be shed by the time it is born)
Increased libido. 😍
Stretch marks and maybe even a brand-new “outtie.”
More vaginal discharge, a result of increased blood flow down there.
Steady weight gain- about half a pound each week from here on out.
Minor swelling in your hands and feet.
Backaches, due to extra pressure from baby and carrying around the extra weight. 🤰🏼
Hair growth (maybe in strange places- sorry!) Thank you hormones. 🤦🏼
Trouble catching your breath, as baby continues to crowd your lungs.
