My Pregnancy Week 30

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 30

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring close to 15 1/2 inches long, she weighs about 3 lbs. She now almost fills up your entire uterine cavity, and her arms and legs have grown much plumper, thanks to the continued growth of subcutaneous fat.

By 30 weeks, his eyelids open and close. He will keep his eyes closed for most of the day though. When his eyes are open, he will be able to track light inside of your womb, though his vision isn't “perfect” or 20/20. Lanugo, or fine hair that once covered his body, will start falling off this week.

In the coming weeks, the volume of amniotic fluid in your belly will decrease as your baby continues to gain weight and take up more space.

    I’m 30 weeks now, he has already turned and never stops moving. Yesterday I went to Bed Bath & Beyond and bought one of those snoogle “C” shaped body pillows by LeachCo, since his newest favorite activity is doing the Hokie-Pokie in my ribcage between 9-ish pm until somewhere between 2 and 3 am. It works wonders, and I can finally stop staying up until 3 am due to heartburn, back pain and a dancing baby!

    I feel like everything is getting more difficult to do. Now when I drop something on the floor, I look at it for about 5 seconds before picking it up and think, ” Well dangit, now I have to bend over. Where are my telekinesis powers when I need them?!”

    30 weeks tomorrow, we can’t wait to see our baby girl, but a little worried that I need to repeat my sugar test this week pasting for 10hrs and doo my lab test after drinking this juice from the lab, hopefully everything will be ok especially for the baby…so determined to eat a lot of food to improve my iron deficiency, plus taking the additional pills my OB ordered for me, this pregnancy is so different, but come to think of it every member of my family is waiting for the arrival of my little princess.. Prayer and think positive everyday!!!

    I’m about to pop and the doctor could not tell me what I am having yet.but what worries me the most is I was told that one or if not both of his legs are shorter than his body length. He said I shouldn’t worry about dwarfism ,as it is not known in my husband’s or my side of are family. Also we are kind of short for are height, but I’m very healthy and my first pregnancy was normal.so what could I make of this, should I be worried for the unexpected or just pray for the best.

      Where I live, they do a simple lab test to determine the sex of the baby. It can also detect certain illnesses/diseases as well. The test can be performed as early as 9 weeks. And have u not had ultrasounds to determine anything?
