Week 22


During this trimester you may still feel pretty good and active. Sexuality can change a lot during pregnancy however at this stage of your pregnancy, sex may be very fulfilling. This is due in part to the increase in blood flow to your clitoris and an increase in vaginal lubrication. On the other hand, other women don’t want to be touched at all! Whatever your feelings it is important to discuss it with your partner. Just be assured that sex during pregnancy is totally safe for both you and your baby, unless your gynecologist suggests otherwise.


Your baby now measures approximately 19 centimeters from crown to rump. S/he has eyelids and eyebrows and has developed fat, which helps to keeps it warm. If you are carrying a boy, his testes descend. The baby is getting bigger and continuing to practice for his/her life outside your uterus. Those tiny ears can now hear sounds from outside, so you might notice that your baby gets startled when you drop your keys or switch on your liquidizer!


It is very normal for dads to pile up a few pounds during the pregnancy. This is called sympathetic pregnancy syndrome. This might be partially due to the stress of knowing that soon a new life will be totally dependent upon you for years to come.
