30 Weeks

From Babycenter:

How your baby's growing:

Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'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.)

From Sarah:

Everyone asks: "How are you feeling?" and with complete strangers, my patients or if I don't want to talk about it I say, "I'm doing good." I noticed on Saturday while at the Aunts house that I kept saying, "I'm doing good" although really, I'd been up all night throwing up and slept on the couch all day and still had bad body aches, nausea and felt crappy. So, I guess it's just the thing you say, "I'm doing good." I'm really not sure why I do that, but I guess I just don't want to seem like I'm complaining all the time.

Sunday and Monday were really good days, and today is good so far. I'm keeping on the low fat diet, no cokes, no spice (I think it was fat free Italian dressing that set me off on Friday night)

Since I work for a doctor's office I asked this morning if we could pull a Cholesterol panel. After Aiden was born my cholesterol elevated and from what I've been reading higher cholesterol can cause gallbladder problems, so not that there is anything we can do if my cholesterol is high (but watch it and eat low cholesterol, too) but it would be nice to know.

So, if you ask, I'll probably say, "I'm good" and I may be, but it may just be my normal reaction to the question. Just so you know! :)
