Pregnancy week 22
How's the foetus during week 22?
Baby's brain is growing
Your baby weighs about 430g and is about 27.8cm long from crown to heel- the size of a spaghetti squash.
The brain is growing rapidly.
His eyelids and eyebrows have formed and he’s getting a bit of fat on those bones.
In boys, the testes are starting to descend from the pelvis to the scrotum.
What's with my body: Stable hormones, weight gain
You may feel more emotionally stable and in control, thanks to hormones that soothe you from now through to the birth.
Some women enjoy sex more because of the increase in blood flow to the clitoris and increased vaginal lubrication.
You’re probably gaining weight more steadily now.
During the second trimester you will feel better than in the other trimesters. This could be a great time to go away with your partner and any other children on a carefree holiday.
