30 Weeks Pregnant: What's Going On

Your Baby at 30 Weeks Pregnant

Making headway. Your baby's brain continues its incredible development. This week, the brain begins to take on its distinctive wrinkled appearance. These wrinkles are called convolutions, and they allow the brain to hold more brain cells. Lanugo, the ultrafine hair that covered your baby's body, starts disappearing.

A shared meal. The calcium from the milk you drink goes directly to building your baby's bones. The iron in your prenatal vitamins and iron-rich foods you eat boosts his iron supply, which will last until he's 6 to 9 months old. Protein is also crucial now because it supports healthy cell growth throughout your baby's body.

Measuring up. Your baby weighs about 3 pounds this week and is a little more than 10.8 inches from crown to rump. His total length, including his legs, is about 17 inches.

The seventh-month itch. The stretching skin on your belly may start itching — this is completely normal. Try massaging your abdomen gently with a moisturizing lotion. Scratching makes it worse, so avoid this if possible.

Looking for Dr. Right. It's not too early to start searching for a pediatrician, family physician, or nurse-practitioner for your baby — in fact, the earlier the better. It's important to find someone you like and trust, since you'll be seeing this person a lot (especially during your baby's first year). Ask your friends for recommendations, and take the time to interview each candidate.
