Pregnancy Diary: 30 weeks

Today I am 30 weeks and 6 days pregnant – and leaving this to the last minute as usual, though I did take the photos last Friday.

30 weeks

Baby is: the size of a butternut squash.  All his organs are almost fully developed, just the lungs need to mature and he is gaining weight at the rate of about half a pound a week.  His eyes are now open when he’s awake and closed when he’s asleep.

I am: very tired but otherwise ok.  I’m having Braxton Hicks contractions which are quite painful.  I remember having them for a month at the end of the last pregnancy, but I didn’t expect them to start this early!
