30 weeks...

...and day 22 of bedrest! Everything's going well and I *might* actually be getting used to this whole bedrest thing...might. Anywho, enough about me, here's what's happening with the baby this week:

Baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and he weighs almost 3 pounds. 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. His 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.

He's definitely growing and moving all the time. Hopefully some of that movement has been him flipping around to the right position! I know he doesn't like it when I monitor, he constantly moves as soon as I put it on, lol.
Well, nothing else to report. Pretty boring this past week, but hopefully I'll have more good news for you after my next appointment on the 6th.

When you write, "Your uterus", you're talking generally, right? Because I don't have a uterus! I don't think so anyway. Who knows, I failed biology.
Looking good!

Looking good! I swear I'd be up like 30 lbs after 22 days of bed rest :)
