22 weeks pregnant checklist

About 65% of healthy pregnant women develop fluid retention or swelling (called oedema), even though their blood pressure is normal. Most women feel quite comfortable with their pregnancy by this stage, both physically and emotionally. As your pregnancy progresses, you may start buying some items for your new baby’s arrival.
Much time can be spent researching all the different baby equipment available, often taking up weekends with shopping (or hours surfing the net) to compare products and prices.


Your baby’s placenta is now processing about 1 litre of blood per hour (or 50 pints every 24 hours) and by 40 weeks this increases to about 12 litres per hour (600 pints in 24 hours). This may be noticed any time after 20 weeks of pregnancy and can happen in the legs, feet and hands.
Normal pregnancy swelling is generally more noticeable at the end of the day, although it may be worse on hot days, after a plane trip or if you are on your feet for long periods of time. Sometimes nausea and vomiting return during late pregnancy quite unexpectedly, particularly if dealing with a lot of stress.


Partners may also feel the pregnancy is becoming more tangible as they watch the woman’s belly grow and hopefully soon will be able to feel their baby move as well! While primitive brain waves have been detected in unborn babies as early as 7 weeks, it is not until 22 weeks that sustained patterns can be definitely recorded.
