30 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #3
This week baby is shedding lanugo. She will also put on around half a pound a week until she is born. Her eyes are still developing but she can see, this will improve over the next few weeks. She is around 17 inches long and weighs around 3 and a half pounds. If she isn't already she should be moving into a head down position for birth.
This week my belly is getting in the way, haha. Washing up I've noticed I have to stand further away and then it starts to hurt my back. Baby girls movements are also getting painful at times. I'm having more frequent Braxton hicks too, especially if I do a lot. I'm going to try to take it easy and not do as much in these coming weeks and just let my body rest a little. I've had nausea again this week and heartburn. A not so nice symptom are nightmares. I keep having horrible dreams about people cutting my belly open and stealing the baby. I'm really hoping they stop soon as they are disturbing my sleep so I'm extra tired.
I got my whooping cough jab too. It was fine and just gave me a dead arm for a few days.
Waist - 29 inch, no change.
Belly - 36 inch, same as last week
