Baby in the tummy @ 30 weeks

Your baby's lungs and digestive tract are almost fully developed. While your baby may soon slow up growing in length, (he measures about 15.7 inches/ 40 centimetres from crown to toe by now), he will continue to gain weight until he's born.

This week your baby continues to open and shut his eyes. He can probably see what's going on in utero, distinguish light from dark and even track a light source. If you shine a light on your stomach, your baby may move his head to follow the light or even reach out to touch the moving glow. Some researchers think baring your stomach to light stimulates visual development. But don't expect 20/20 vision when your baby is born -- newborns can see a distance of only about 8 to 12 inches/ 20 to 30 centimetres. (Children with normal vision don't reach 20/20 vision until about age 7 to 9.) To complete the picture, your baby now has eyebrows and eyelashes.

A pint and a half/around a litre of amniotic fluid now surrounds your baby but that volume decreases as he gets bigger and has less room in your uterus. As you and the baby continue to grow, don't be alarmed if you feel
breathless, as if you can't get enough air; it's just your uterus pressing against your diaphragm. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though. At about 34 weeks (or just before delivery, if this is your second or third pregnancy), your baby's head will move down into your pelvis as the baby gets into the right position for birth. That will make breathing and eating a lot easier.


Hey guys.. me again haha.. well I feel moving into week 30 is quite significant to me therefore I wish to share some of my bao bei's information with you.. Ta dah.. (as above). you must be wondering.. wah so fast 30 weeks liao.. yes.. if you should know, a baby will be consider full term at 37 weeks (slightly a bit before 40 weeks). Oops.. think I forgot to update you guys about my latest check up.. so here it is..

07 Nov 06 (Tuesday)

went for my week 29 (approximately 7 months +) check up at gynae and Dr Tham said everything is fine.. I had put on 1.7 kg since the last visit about 4 weeks ago (don't tell you my weight :P). We did an ultrasound of bao bei and I had since ask Dr what is the weight of baby.. He said 1.2kg! I was like "WOAH~! datz a lot!" But surprisingly Dr said it is considered normal, so as long as I do not put on more than 2 kg per month, baby should put on a considerably weight as well.. hehe.. *phew*

Then on the same day, at TPS (short for The Private Suite), I signed up for the delivery package as well. Actually before we went for this appointment, ah lao had I had been discussing about what package we should picked up. Well for my personal thoughts, as this is gonna be my first delivery, I actually "psycho-ed" ah lao to let me take the A1 ward *cunning look* since A1 ward is the only ward that allows our husband to stay overnight with us for 3 days.. so are you considering too? *hiak* anyway the charges are as follows:

A1 ward: average bill size for

Natural birth > $3.5K (2 days stay)

Caesaren> $5.3K (3 days stay)

Hmm sounds ex right.. but after deduction from Medisave (eligible for $1.7K), we actually have to fork out another $1.8K cash.. *finger tremble when I sign Visa for this amount* hehe.. anyway I had signed liao so no more regrets! :D

alright! time for shower, till the next post.. *pat pat stomach.. baby what are you doing? mommy go pompom liao ok?" :D

MC~ again..

This morning I woke up with quite a bit of headache.. "a bout of miagrain again" I reckon.. So I happily sms-ed my boss and senior teacher that I cant go to work.. then I happily plotted my head back to bed... zzzz.. till 11 am plus when I woke up. Oh by the way, did I mention that my ah lao also did not go to work? haha.. oh well.. so the first thing I did after I wash up, I went to the GP at the next block.. *initially wanted to keng mc for one day*

So after a few minutes of talking with the GP, he kindly concluded that I might be at risk for pre-eclampsia.. so he got a little worried and told me to rest for two days.. *yeah* then he gave me this sheet of paper on how to prevent myself from further miagrain attacks.... woo.. if you had read, pre-eclampsia is something that is quite serious esp when I was detected with slight high BP and headaches incidents.. hmm.. anyway I am really taking care of myself.. don't get too worried ya.. *smile*
