Although Dr. C was referring to me as being 30 weeks last week I'm going to go on with my 30 week post this week...
Less than 9 weeks to go. (We are being induced at 39 weeks if we haven't already had him)
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 she can only make out objects a few inches from his face.
