- Week 29 & 30: Mia now weighs between 2 1/2 to 3 pounds (1.1k - 1.4k) (about the size of a butternut squash or a large cabbage) and is a tad over 15.2 to 15.7 inches long (38.6 to 39.9 cm) from head to heel. Her muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and her head is growing bigger to make room for her developing brain. To meet her increasing nutritional demands, I'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron.
What I researched lately: AAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Less than 2 months away from meeting our sweet Baby Mia! Now that were closer and closer Baby Mia is more active than ever! I've learned a pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will shrink as she gets bigger and takes up more room in my 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.)
Fun Baby & Bump facts for week #29 & #30:
- At this point I'm getting tired more often, even when doing activities within my normal routine
- I'm having trouble sleeping
- I also feel clumsier than normal, which is perfectly understandable. Not only am I heavier, but the concentration of weight in my pregnant belly causes a shift in my center of gravity
- Mia's lungs are developed enough to breathe air
- She's moving at least 10 times an hour
Symptoms: Now I REALLYYYYY feel pregnant! I'm not huge but I can totally not hide my belly (Which I don't mind, lol) Besides the Back pain I've noticed that when I take long to have either breakfast, lunch or dinner I get nauseous. So I try my best to eat at the right hours!
Next Doctors Appointment: Is set for the 1st or second week of July! Not sure!
