Happy 6 Months – 22 Weeks Pregnant!

22 weeks starts the 6th month! Isn’t that exciting? When this month is over not only will I be hitting the 3rd trimester but that also means less than 100 days until Shelby arrives!

Every day I have more energy and feel kinda “normal”.  All these baby kicks are pretty awesome. She has her days of tons of movements and other days where she seems to be sleeping and resting. I have been told that when they aren’t moving around a lot they could be going through a growth spurt.

I also can’t believe that October is almost over. This month just FLEW by! November and December will be just as fast with the Holidays! Next thing I know we will be counting down the days until Shelby arrives!

So exciting!

Your Baby in Week 22 of Pregnancy

This week, your baby weighs in at a whopping pound and measures 11 inches, about the size of a small doll. But your little doll (who now has eyebrows, eyelashes, and maybe even some hair on that little head) is a living one who can now perceive light and dark. She can also hear your voice, your heartbeat, your gurgling stomach, and the whoosh-whoosh of blood circulating through your body. And as her brain and nerve endings develop, she may reach for her face (or whatever she can reach) just to experiment with her newfound sense of touch.

  1. The time is gonna fly by from now to New Years and then you can start counting down those last weeks. It will be here before you know it and able to snuggle a newborn again. I know how lovely it is…doing just that with my grand daughter tonight and there is nothing like it!
