I do have pictures
Of my 30th week. I just need to get them off my camera. That being said, this is week 30 and I never thought I would get here without complications considering my past trials with fertility. I am so ecstatic to meet this little one!
We have so many items of clothing that I hope she gets to wear all of them. And if we are having a boy, we are in big trouble because on top of all the girly clothes she now owns, her room is completely pink. I also have pictures of that. Now to get items like furniture and decor. That will be the fun part!
My doctors appointments are now 2 weeks apart just to make sure that they aren't missing anything. I think that I feel the baby head down with her baby butt right around my belly button area and her feet are definitely in my ribs. She moves a lot now. Kick counts are recommended in this stage of pregnancy, but I really have no need for them because she lets me know that she's in there all the time.
I'm growing out of some of my pregnancy clothes, but do not want to buy more at this point.....I think I'm going to end up changing my mind for comfort reasons.
Here are some cool facts about 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.)
Here is what she looks like inside of mommy today:)
