Pregnancy Week 22: Baby Growth
It’s week 22! Your baby is now almost 500 grams in weight and about 28 cms is length, and is beginning to have defined features. Eyelids, eyebrows and lips will now have a more distinct shape. Only the finishing touches and detailing on the developing masterpiece remain.
While eyelids are still closed, but your baby is more responsive to light shone on the belly. There are deep wrinkles all over the body which will smoothen out as your baby’s body gets padded with more layers of fat.
The baby now looks like a miniature human. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that cover the baby’s body and the deep wrinkles on the skin.
