Week 30

We’re here! We are in to single digit countdown! 9 weeks to go…. and counting!

I am beginning to get so uncomfortable now. Not just this heat, but baby is flipping from being breech to transverse which really hurts. I am also experiencing a lot of Braxton Hicks, some which make me stop in my tracks or they’re so tight I struggle to breathe. I also get a tremendous about of pressure in my pelvis when this happens. So, whether I make it the full 9 weeks, we shall see! I bet I do though!

I’ve lost 1lb this week, so it brings my total Pregnancy Weight Gain down to just 4lbs. It’s probably because we’ve had a lot going on here this past week, so despite eating properly, I’m burning it off as quick as it’s going on.

Apart from being uncomfortable, not much else has been going on. I’m just at that fed up stage where I can’t do everything I used to, and it’s getting frustrating.

According to my phone app, baby is around 40cm long and approx weight is 1.3kgs (or roughly 2.8lbs) and he is surrounded by nearly a litre of amniotic fluid, which will decrease as he gets bigger and takes up more room. His eyesight is continuing to develop every day. When he is born he will respond to changes in light, and will only make out objects a few inches from his face.

Week 30 picture is attached. I think it’s low again? What do you think?? Will we make it the next 9 weeks? Only time will tell.
