22 Weeks Pregnant

As you complete 21 weeks of pregnancy and move past the mid-term of your pregnancy, most of the unpleasant pregnancy symptoms would have subsided. However new ones like cramps and unmanageable emotions begin to surface. Don’t fret. These too will pass. Find out more in our short guide to managing pregnancy:an e-book.

Changes in Your Body at Week 22 Pregnancy

At 22 weeks of pregnancy you might notice varicose veins at this stage. These occur if you stand in one position for a long period of time. These are veins that fill up with blood and appear as bluish purple lines on the feet and legs.

Your growing baby will be pushing your abdominal muscles apart. So you might notice a small bulge in the middle when you lie down. This can cause skin irritation. Relieve yourself off this discomfort by applying cocoa butter.

Your Baby’s Development at Week 22 Pregnancy

The new thing this week is that from now onwards and into the 23 weeks of pregnancy too you will be able to feel the baby’s kicks pretty frequently.

At 22 weeks of pregnancy the baby is still very thing as this stage. This is because of the lack of fatty tissues on its body. But these develop very soon.

While the skin is still very wrinkly, the internal organs are developing fast.

Although its eyes have formed fully, the iris still lacks the pigment.

When the red blood cells break down inside the baby’s body, it produces bilirubin. The baby’s liver is developed enough now to produce enzymes to break down this bilirubin in turn.  However since the fetal red blood cells have a lower life span the production of bilirubin is quite high. That bilirubin which the baby’s liver cant beak down, passes into the mother’s blood through the placenta. It is then broken down by the enzymes form the mother’s liver.

If you are having a girl, then her ovaries and uterus is fully formed by now.

The baby begins to learn about touch and begins to touch its face and neck.

At 22 weeks of pregnancy the baby teeth have also formed and are waiting inside the guns. It also begins to differentiate between sweet and  bitter tastes.

Week 22 Pregnancy Tips and Advice

As people realize that you are pregnant, some might have the tendency to touch your belly. If you are uncomfortable then do voice your thoughts out loud. It is important for you to feel comfortable and not stressed out about anything at this stage.

Since you can still walk around fairly easily, do finish all your shopping and all the hard work that’s pending regarding the baby’s nursery.

At 22 weeks of pregnancy drink a lot of water throughout the day. This will help in the production of the extra blood that’s needed for your child and also reduce the headaches that you are most likely to experience at this stage of your pregnancy. Keep a watch on your urine (it should be odourless) and report to the doctor in case you feel any itching or foul smell in your urine.

Week 22 Fun

Check into a hotel room near your home – just for the fun of it. Then explore the city that you live in as a tourist would. It will be enjoyable and your home and your doctor is also just a few minutes’ drive away; so there is nothing to fear either.

Call all your girl friends and spend an evening playing all your favourite childhood board games. Some snacks and juices and it sure can become a lot of fun.

So how are people reacting now that they have figured out that you are pregnant? How does it feel? Join our due date club here and share your thoughts with other mums-to-be.

Who's the Boss?

A man goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. The shop owner points to three identical looking parrots on a perch and says:

"The parrot to the left costs 500 dollars".

"Why does the parrot cost so much?" the customer asks.

The owner says, "Well, it knows how to use a computer."

The customer asks about the next parrot and is told "That one costs 1,000 dollars because it can do everything the other parrot can do plus it knows how to continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Saturday, October 25th, 2014

Time spent in nature or quietly alone can recharge your batteries today. Do what you can to get away and listen to your heart. You have a wonderful, natural sense of style that need not mean spending big money. Focus more attention on being well dressed and making a good presentation.

A subject you’re researching, perhaps for a class or workshop, might prove more difficult than you expected. The resources you consult might be very scholarly and thus difficult to read. If you can’t find anything comprehensible, try to rent or buy a video on the subject. It’s more important to understand the material than force yourself to approach it in the accepted scholarly manner. It’s also important that you enjoy it.

Your mind may seem rather cloudy today, but don’t let this hinder you. In fact, you’ll find that you can use this feeling of fantasy to your advantage. Try to bring more magic into your life. You’ll discover that the more you accept your bizarre feelings and ideas, the more things will fall into place. Don’t think that everything in life has to be completely rational.

You might come across strong opposition today from someone who seems to want to cut straight through to your heart. In reality, this is a message reminding you to think about things in terms of the collective – the oneness of us all. Be aware of a greater perspective in which you see more than just your side of the issue. Talk to people you trust before making any major decisions.

Today calls for grabbing of opportunities! You might hit upon the right moment to ask for a raise or a promotion, so make sure to make the most of it. There is also a chance for a romantic meeting. However these things may simply pass by without your notice if you are not alert.

Today you might work on an artistic project of some kind. You’ll put in a lot of effort, yet the results may not turn out to be exactly what you wanted. This could result in many revisions. Eventually, you’re going to have to stop. It’s possible to revise and correct too much. Whatever you’re working on, try to remain objective and not get too caught up in unrealistic expectations.

‘Busy bee’ is going to be your nickname for the day. Unexpected tasks may emerge out of nowhere and keep you on your toes. You may end up cleaning your house or handling crisis in the office. Or you may be called upon by a horde of guests or may be required to help out a friend. One way or the other, today is going to be a hectic ride.

With the current aspects at play, you could find that the hard work you’ve done in the past finally brings financial rewards. This will make you very happy, but don’t get carried away and go on a spending spree! Treat yourself a little. Celebrate with a friend. Take care to exercise a little good sense. You don’t want to buy too much and have to take a lot of it back to the store.

A small sum of money could come your way today. It could be that someone pays you what’s owed you, or you could win a small amount in a lottery. You might find a $20 bill lying in the street! Sex and romance are very much on your mind. If you can’t get together with a partner this evening, you might curl up with a steamy novel or watch a romantic video.
