Topic Week 30: Goodbye Monkey Baby

Fetal development in pregnancy week 30:

The light is visible at the end of the tunnel! Your oversized self and
amazing growing baby have finally reached the single digits (in terms
of weeks till birth)! The fine lanugo hair that has been growing all
over their little monkey-like body is going to start falling off this
week in preparation for the big day. But don’t be shocked if they’re
hairier than you’d anticipated, some babies keep their lanugo until
after birth. Still, it’s not any cause to be concerned as it will fall
off eventually. No surprises here: your little porker is getting even
cuter with increasingly pudgy arms and legs this week thanks to the
ever-growing layers of subcutaneous fat. In terms of numbers, your baby
should be weighing in at around 3 pounds 12 ounces (or more!) and be
nearly 16 inches long.

And how's mom doing?
On a very serious note: you should make
sure to determine both you and your baby’s blood type. It’s extremely
important for everyone. In the case that you and your maturing babe’s
blood types don’t match there’s a chance you could produce antibodies
that could potentially attack and harm a future the
drama you’re feeling is largely a result of increased adrenaline thanks
indirectly to hormonal swings—not because things really are that
dramatic and merit adult temper tantrums fetus. It is rare, but
with modern medicine, the problem is easily corrected and little cause
for concern if dealt with properly.As for the ongoing joys of
being in your third trimester: your not-so-fun symptoms are just
intensifying this week, so it might not hurt to slow down a bit and
focus on yourself. If you’re feeling extra fatigued, you’ve probably
joined the sleeping shouldn’t be this tough when I’m this tired
club, especially if you’re experiencing a lot of back pain and general
discomfort. If you’ve been pushing the exercise thing, then this is the
time perhaps to cut down on the physical activities and focus more on
getting proper sleep (if this means buying a pregnancy pillow, then do
it!). Oh and all that moodiness? Just go with the flow emotionally.
This doesn't mean letting the hormones win and becoming a complete
psychotic. Instead, feel the feelings, but know that the drama you’re
feeling is largely a result of increased adrenaline thanks indirectly
to hormonal swings—not because things really are that dramatic and
merit adult temper tantrums. The clincher symptom for this week: it’s
highly likely your libido has gone on sabbatical. This, as far as we’re
concerned, is perfectly natural in your condition.
