Week 30 – Wow, just 10 more weeks before we meet you!

Oct 07, 11 Month 7

Welcome to Week 30 my dear! Wow, I can’t believe it’ll be just another 10 more weeks before we get to meet you! And with the way these weeks have been flying by, it’ll be very soon!

I haven’t been sleeping much lately due to some contract jobs I needed to finish up. And you’re always there to keep me company late at night while I’m coding. :)

You hardly nap now. I guess you like staying up with me. Or do you nap but toss and turn a lot? Every time you stretch and move, I still feel a shortness of breath. And your movement looks like ocean waves on my tummy now. It’s so fun to watch! You’re constantly stretching and moving around all day.. it makes me wonder if you’re cramped in there!

You usually kick a lot when your Daddy is around, which is during the mornings and evenings. He finds it amusing when I have a surprised look on my face when you suddenly kick. haha

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