Your pregnancy and baby guide : You and your baby at 22 weeks pregnant

Your baby at 22 weeks

Your baby is beginning to get into a pattern of sleeping and waking, which will not necessarily be the same as yours. When you're in bed at night, feeling relaxed and trying to sleep, your baby may be wide awake and moving about.


You at 22 weeks

Not everybody gets stretch marks, but if you do, they will probably start becoming noticeable when you're around 22 to 24 weeks pregnant.

They may appear on your stomach, breasts and thighs. At first they look red, then fade to a silvery grey.

Your breasts may start to leak a little pre-milk – this is normal.

You may also notice skin changes in pregnancy.
