30 weeks pregnant = 75% done

5 Sep

I’m 30 weeks pregnant today, which suddenly makes Nugget’s birthday seem so much closer.  I know that by the end I’ll probably be eager to just have it all over with, but for now it feels like there’s too much to get done!

I wanted to call this post “30 weeks, then and now” and show you belly pics at 30 weeks with Jade compared to belly at 30 weeks with Nugget.  But no one is around today to take belly shots, so I’ll just have to make do with the old pictures.

Here’s what I looked like when I was 30 weeks pregnant with Jade:

My belly was so much rounder that time!  I haven’t been taking naked belly shots this time because of unsightly stretch marks, but perhaps I’ll brave it when Michael gets back this weekend.  It would be fun to try to reproduce these poses for comparison.

Here’s what BabyCenter.com has to say about Nugget’s development right now:

Your baby’s about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your 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.)
