30 Weeks

How I’m feeling at 30 weeks:

  • Like I’m harboring a professional boxer (Ben’s kicking like a madman)
  • Tired (having trouble sleeping, getting up a lot, tossing and turning, back hurts, neck hurts, waking up in the middle of the night starving)
  • Like my stomach acid is is eating my throat (heart burn – love Tums!)
  • Otherwise, not bad 🙂

Update from BabyCenter (she changed to he):

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 her 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.)
