    Your baby’s development

    Can you say weight gain?

    The thirtieth week of pregnancy is the beginning of your final trimester and your baby continues to steadily add weight and important insulating fat layers to his body.

    At 30 weeks, he weighs about 1.36 kilograms and is about 27 cm long from or about the length of a bunch of celery. His legs and feet increase this measurement by many more cm.

    Here’s what else to expect in his development this week:
    • From now until week 37, your baby will gain an impressive 0.22 kilograms a week.
    • Your baby might be practicing breathing movements as he rhythmically moves his diaphragm. You may notice a slight twitching in your abdomen when this happens.
    • His brain continues to expand and develop; creating additional room that will support his learning and development throughout his lifetime.
    • Your baby’s brain can now regulate his body temperature, so he begins to lose the lanugo– the fine hair that has been covering his body for warmth.

    Things to think about now

    What’s that numbness or tingling?

    When you’re 30 weeks pregnant, it’s possible that your growing uterus might press on nerves in your legs and arms. This can cause your legs, toes, or arms to tingle. This is completely normal and it will disappear after your baby’s birth.
