Pregnancy Survey- 30 Weeks

How Far Along: 30 weeks

Size of baby: Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and he weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds him, but that volume will decrease as he gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. His eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after he 's born, he'll keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them, he'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means he can only make out objects a few inches from his face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

Total Weight Gain: 16 lbs

Sleep: My belly is starting to get in the way now and I'm trying to use pillows to hold it up. I get in trouble with David when he finds me on my back by accident. Molly still hasn't gotten the memo that there is a baby in there, when it's cold she just curls up in my tummy nook as if nothing is in her way.

Symptoms: Slight lower back pain, but I'm doing my yoga still. He's moved up to my rib area a bit on the right side so it helps to stretch out and elongate to give him more room. He is still breech (feet down) but that's okay right now he still has approx. 6-8 weeks to move to the proper position.
Cravings: Nothing crazy. I did have the best orange soda the other day after I was really craving it and it was so good (and caffeine free).

Gender- Max David is his name :)

Movement: He's moving away all the time and I do still feel him on the right upper side and lower so must be hands and feet, or head/and bottom.

Maternity Clothes: Yup, and just wearing some things a size up from my normal is working pretty good still.

Best Moments this week: Seeing Max at the ultrasound, putting the crib together, picking out our stroller set and decorating for Xmas. Here is a pic from the ultrasound. Can't believe he is already 3 lbs. We start going every 2 weeks now to the doctor, crazy!

What I'm looking forward to:  Can't wait for my family to get here in 2 weeks (wow didn't realize it was that fast)! We have a lot of baby stuff and xmas stuff to do. I also got my GA shower invite in the mail the other day and it's adorable! Doesn't it look just like us?
Milestones: Crib is up and house is decorated for xmas. We are now moving on to homemade gifts and fixing stuff around the house still. I have been looking around at more nursery decor and just haven't settled on anything firm yet.
I set this photo up on the automatic timer and closed the door. Molly busted in at the exact time it was taking so I thought it was funny and left her busting in. My belly is growing rapidly now!
Pin It
