Your Pregnancy: Week 22
Real estate within your belly is getting tight, with growing baby leaving little room for your lungs to...well...breathe. Expect the huffing and puffing to start soon. There's not much room for your belly button, either — it'll pop out any day now.
Baby's now the size of a papaya!
Baby's settling into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when — just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.
[ tip ] Think small. Eating five or six mini meals a day instead of three big ones will help prevent indigestion, headaches, queasiness, and junk food cravings.
