30 Weeks!

So, I usually do this on Tuesdays but I was probably somewhere in between Albuquerque and the middle of nowhere! So here is what Mr. Brycen is doing these days!
Your 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 your 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 she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

I think he may have finally moved into the right position. He has been breech (head up) or transverse (sideways) til yesterday. I finally felt that horrible kicking in the ribs pain I had with Thompson. Let's just hope he isn't too big on doing flips.
