The amniotic fluid around a 30-week-old fetus is about 700 grams, but after this state of the fetus passes in the 30th week of pregnancy , your fetus will grow and occupy a larger volume of the uterus, and as a result, the volume of the amniotic fluid around it will decrease. His eyes open and close, the fetus at 30 weeks is able to distinguish between darkness and light and can even follow the movement of a light source back and forth. Just like the photo of a 30-week-old fetus, when your sweetheart is born, she will keep her eyes closed most of the day. But when he opens his eyes, he can react to changes in light. But the visual accuracy of a 30-week-old fetus is only one-twentieth, that is, it can only accurately recognize objects that are only a few centimeters away from its face. Normal vision in adults for healthy people is equal to twenty-twentieth. The fetus continues to absorb nutrients through the mother’s body to develop its growth in the last trimester. Calcium for bones, protein for muscles and iron for the production of blood cells. Therefore, he may feel more tired or anemic at this time. The brain of the fetus is partially fully developed, but its growth and the development of connections and branches and memory still increase the speed of fetal growth. Now that the brain and the new fat cells of the fetus regulate its body temperature, the fluff (that soft and fluffy hair) that covers your little body will gradually disappear. There is no longer any need for that downy covering, but when the baby is born, you may see some traces of down on the baby’s back and shoulders.

Do not overeat

Hunger is only one of thousands of reasons to eat. Nervous and emotional reasons may send you to the refrigerator for several times.

Cord blood bank

The big day is coming and now a big question: what is umbilical cord blood and should you consider keeping this rich resource in the umbilical cord blood bank or donate your child’s umbilical cord blood? Umbilical cord blood is what remains in the umbilical cord and placenta after birth. Cord blood is a rich source of stem cells. These cells, which are genetically unique for each child, are the building blocks of blood, organs, tissues and the immune system, and include stem cells that can treat some blood diseases and immune system disorders. Promising research is underway to determine if these stem cells can be used to treat other conditions as this science is just emerging. A safe and painless procedure is to draw blood right after the baby is born. You can maintain these cells privately for a significant annual maintenance fee. If you want to do this, you should talk to your doctor about it so that the necessary preliminary work can be done.

Don’t forget the pillow

To rest during this period, lie on your side, bend your legs and place a pillow between them and place another pillow under your stomach. By placing a pillow under your stomach, you create a support for your body and in this way the pressure on your back is reduced. Try to lie down for 20 minutes after lunch, and if you don’t have time to sleep during the day, rest at least 5 minutes every hour and raise your legs.

Prepare your child’s belongings

This can be a good option for your spouse or a friend who wants to help you. Preparing a manual crib and a manual stroller can be a good place to start, as putting together their various parts is a rather difficult task. Devices such as baby swings, crib hangers, wireless specials, and baby monitors (which allow you to see where your baby is or listen to his/her voice) may require batteries. So make sure you have enough batteries.

Be careful with the water bag

The sac of water is a part of the placenta that contains the fluid that protects the fetus and the fetus itself. The water bag, like the placenta, has nothing to do with the mother and the fetus and is thrown away after delivery. But there is a possibility of spontaneous rupture of the water bag and delivery in the 30th week of pregnancy and before the due date. If the bag breaks, liquid water will come out drop by drop or in large volume and suddenly. If you suspect that the water bag has ruptured, you should see your doctor or midwife immediately. According to the gestational age, if this happens to you in the thirtieth week of pregnancy, you will be admitted to the hospital and with the help of special serums, they will try to give birth to the baby as naturally as possible.
