30 Weeks

 

How far along? 30 Weeks 3 Days

How big is Choochie this week? Choochie rivals a good-size cabbage in weight, tipping the scales this week at  little more than 3 pounds.  Choochie will be packing on the weight at a rate of half a pound per week for the next seven weeks!

Until now, the surface of your Choochies brain was smooth.  Now that little brain is taking on those characteristic grooves and indentations, which allow for an increased amount of brain tissue as Choochie prepares for life outside the womb.  Choochies bone marrow has taken over production of red blood cells (before, tissue groups and then the spleen took care of producing the blood cells).  This is an important step for your Choochie, because it means she is better able to thrive on his or her own once born!

Sleep? Jess dreads the time at night when we go to bed!!

Movement? Sometimes Choochie looks like she’s going to jump right out of Jess’ belly!!
