So now we know that Gracie is officially due to make her appearance on the 20th of March and that G will be 31 weeks on Monday. In the end I guess it doesn’t really matter because according to Gretchen our birthing instructor, “there really is no such thing as a due date, there’s just a due month.” The good news is that the appointment went great! Baby girl is measuring right on track and she is weighing in around 3.5lbs. Georgia passed her second glucose test and lost another 3lbs, which is just crazy, but all of our doctor’s say she is doing awesome. Gracie’s heartbeat was 147bmp and SHE HAS HAIR! The doctor showed us her little peach fuzz and it may have been the most adorable thing ever. It’s just nuts to think that she can now see things and hear my voice and has hair AND could possibly be here in as little as 6 weeks!
Week 31, here we come!
How your baby’s growing: 30 Weeks
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).
