30 Weeks

This week I hit 30 weeks!! Only 10 more (give or take) to go!! We went to the Dr. Tuesday afternoon and everything looks good! I did good on my weight gain and in 2 more weeks we go back and get an ultrasound. I can't wait to see Graham again, we haven't seen him since our 20 week appointment. The time really seems like it is flying by now, and I am getting so anxious to meet him. He has been moving around quite a bit lately and the other night we felt him have the hiccups. My feet have been a little swollen lately, especially Easter night, but they seem to be doing better. I feel like we have so much to do before he arrives, but I know it is slowly getting accomplished. I can't wait for my baby shower on May 1st! This weekend we might start working on painting his nursery so stay tuned for pictures!

How your baby's growing:

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. Hjs 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 he can only make out objects a few inches from his face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

See what your baby looks like this week.
