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.

Your Fortune For Today

You may feel like a skipping record. You’ve been scratched and mistreated, and now you continue to repeat the same thing over and over until you’ve driven your point home. This isn’t your doing, so don’t be concerned if you hear protests that you’re sending others over the edge. This may be the very thing necessary for all of you to advance to the next step.

Group activities or social events in your neighborhood could put you in touch with new and exciting people who eventually become friends. Shared goals and interests could give rise to plans for ambitious projects. Whatever enterprises you start today are likely to prove successful if everyone involved pitches in. This evening, enjoy quiet time with your partner.

Don’t let things bother you today. Have confidence that you’re on the right track. Your strong will and erratic habits will prove quite effective on a day like today, when things seem to be floundering and indecision abounds. Take this opportunity to grab the reins where other people have dropped them. You might be on center stage. This is fine, because you know exactly what to say.

Today you might find yourself the centre of attention. Friends could ask for some information they know you have. It might involve telling a story or giving practical advice. Whatever it is, you might find it difficult to explain without going into some pretty heavy detail. You can do it! Talk slowly and let what you have to say unfold on its own. Your audience will probably be rapt.

Once you have decided your path, you naturally want to walk down it. However, it’s not wise to carry out this process in reverse. It doesn’t make sense to start a journey without any sense of direction. The path may be hidden now, but with patience, it will come into your view. It’s quite futile to learn how to walk when you don’t know which path to walk upon. Desire is what creates aptitude, not the reverse.

You may have been looking forward to a social event, group activity, or perhaps a get-together with a lover today, but circumstances beyond your control throw some unexpected obstacles in your way. Don’t panic. If you’re focused and objective, you can find a way to get around the obstacles and do what you want to do. If you’re involved in creative projects, you might seem blocked today. This should pass by tomorrow.

Memories and emotions welling up from the past might excite your creative impulses today. You may not quite be able to understand what all of this means, but the pictures should keep coming to you nonetheless. It might be a good idea to take some notes, even though you might not comprehend all you write. This may be more a process of releasing ancient traumas than creating great masterpieces, but even so, it’s worth pursuing.

Be careful not to overdo things today. You may so zealously want to meet your goals that you overshoot the mark by quite a bit. Feel free to express your exuberance and let your enthusiasm shine in whatever you do. At the same time, be careful about getting so carried away that you don’t notice that you’ve already reached the finish line.

This is a great day to start new enterprises with others. Gatherings with friends or group activities could lead to ideas for new projects that fire your energy and enthusiasm. New immediate and long-term goals should be set. Some people may not be interested and could drop out, but don’t worry. Others who share your interests will quickly step in to take their places.
