…about baby no. 2’s bump update {30 weeks}.

here’s what’s going on with baby no. 2 this week {from Babycenter}:

Your baby’s about 15.7 inches long now and weighs almost 3 pounds (about the size of a large cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds him, but that volume will shrink 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 her 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 he can only make out objects a few inches from his face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

how far along: 30 weeks + 4 days.

total weight gain: 14 pounds, as of my last appointment, which is so surprising – with baby L, i had already gained almost 30 pounds at this point in the pregnancy!

report – recent ultrasound + prenatal appointment: everything is going well with Baby; his limbs are measuring short, just like his big brother and his Daddy, which isn’t surprising to us or to our doctors. he’s proportionally looking perfect, but is just a little shorter than your average baby, which is nothing to be concerned about, according to our doctors – we feel so thankful that all of baby’s organs and development looks wonderful!

i also took {and passed!} the glucose test at my recent prenatal appointment – yay for taking down that icky drink like a champ!

{update} bump photo: me at 31 weeks!

Baby-Gillis-Two-31-Weeks

what’s coming up: on October 10, i have my next prenatal appointment. after that, i start to see my doctor every two weeks, as we get closer to the due date!

food cravings: cupcakes are still topping the list, but i’m loving the homemade pumpkin bread that my Mom baked for me, too!

what i’m looking forward to: meeting this baby on December 1! i can’t stop thinking about finally figuring out who this little person is – i’m ready to stop imagining and see his eyes! soon enough… :)

what i miss: red, red, red, red wiiiiiiiiiine.

next appointment: October 10!
