30 Weeks Pregnant

How my baby's growing:

My baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and he weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). 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 my 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. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

How my life's changing:

I'm feeling a little tired these days, especially since sleeping is becoming a little more difficult. I find myself taking more naps these days. Other than that things continue to be smooth. Just 10 weeks left to go!

This Saturday I will be having my baby shower at Juana Hernandez'. I included a copy of the invitation however the color is off for some reason... oh well.
