30 Weeks!!!

I cannot believe I have made it this far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our Girls at 30 Weeks!!!!!!!

Your baby now weighs about 3.5 lbs (1600g) and measures about 18 inches (40cm) in total and about 11.2 inches (28cm) from crown to rump.

Your baby's increasing size means that she has less room to move around in your uterus.

Your baby could already be moving into the head-down position.

Your baby's lungs are maturing and their lining, which prevents air sacs from collapsing, is growing. This lung development means that your baby would have a much greater chance of survival if he were born prematurely.

About 16 fluid ounces of blood are flowing through the wall of your uterus to the site of the placenta, though your blood never mixes with your baby's blood. It is separated by the placental barrier which is a very thin wall. Water, nutrients and waste are exchanged across this barrier at a rate of 0.3 fluid ounces per second.

Your baby swallows amniotic fluid and urinates.

Your baby's ears are sufficiently developed to hear and recognize your voice, the voices of other family members as well as familiar musical tunes.

* I promise I will post shower details and pics later. I am waiting for people to send me pics since I took very few on my own camera. :>)

Wow...30 weeks, already. Seems like just yesterday you saw that 2nd line!

I noticed on your ticker yesterday that it said "One month, one week, 6 days" I thought to myself - "WOW! I can't believe she only about 6 weeks to go!" It has seemed like just yesterday you were showing us pictures of your little embryos and pretty soon we'll see pictures of your beautiful little ones!

Sorry to hear that you'll have to be on insulin... Thankfully you only have a short while to have to jab yourself with the needles... Thinking of you!

Hey, I recently added a news widget from to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.



About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
