You are on the 30th week of your pregnancy now!

WEEK 30:
Fetal length: 15.71 in.
Fetus weight: 2.91 lbs.
By 30 weeks, the fetal nervous system becomes more and more functional. There is an increase in the weight of the brain, gyrus become deeper and the number of nerve connections between neurons has significantly increased. This leads to the fact that the fetus responds to stimuli, not just chaotic movements, his reactions are complex. In response to loud sound, he makes certain movements with his hands, legs and opens his eyes. If the same sound is repeated several times, the fetus responds less and less; he got used to it and does not react on it any longer. Consequently, the fetus is able to not only receive the information, but also to analyze and memorize it.
As your baby reaches 30 weeks, his ability to survive in the outside world has improved dramatically and, as a result, the vast majority of babies that are born at this gestation will cope extremely well, with a bit of help from the special care baby doctors.

  • I sent thank-you notes for all my baby shower gifts. Now I just have to return any gifts I got two of — and buy the last of what I need.
  • It’s official! I’ve preregistered at my hospital or birth center. Hospital paperwork is the last thing I’ll need to deal with in the middle of labor.
  • I want to be prepared to take care of my baby in an emergency, so I signed up for an infant CPR class. I also want to be ready to feed my baby if I plan to breastfeed, so I signed up for a breastfeeding class.
  • My partner and I have scheduled some date nights. We want to make sure we get plenty of dates in during the next few months while we still can!
  • I called my insurance company again to find out what I'll need to do after the birth to add my baby to our health insurance.
  • Now that I’ve learned about breastfeeding, I’m starting to think ahead to solid foods. I’ve researched high chairs and booster seats — I’ll need one before I know it.
  • If I’ve got a pet, I’ve figured out my plan for introducing my fur-baby to his new “sibling.” I’ve been practicing ways to teach my pet to respect baby.
