30 Weeks

Baby Girl is growing. Her movements are starting to become much different! No longer the concentrated little kicks but now big shifts. I'm also starting to feel her hanging out in my ribs or in my hip bones from time to time. That's the biggest update for this week. Not much else has changed.

We had a wonderful long weekend in Williamsburg. Here is a belly shot from our trip ...

And here is what Baby Girl is up to this week... Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). 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. 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.)
