How Big is Baby?

This week, the bone marrow starts to prepare red blood cells which imply that the baby is gearing up for survival. In a few weeks, the baby may slow down growing in length but gains weight till birth. By the end of the 7th month, your baby opens and shuts his/her eyes and is able to distinguish light from dark inside the uterus.

Baby’s Length: 39.9 cm.

What to Expect

As your body enlarges in size, your skin also expands which might lead to stretch marks and itchiness. Use cocoa butter moisturizer often as required to avoid scratching your skin.

This week, your uterus enlarges and presses the diaphragm, causing breathlessness. This is quite normal as many pregnant women feel difficult to get enough air after week 30. Change your sitting and sleeping positions to relieve from breathlessness.

The good news: You are in your 30th week and only 10 more weeks left to see your little sweet pea’s face.
