Fetal Development Pictures | 30 Weeks
Fetal Development at 30 weeks:
bonesBonesYour baby's bones are retaining calcium -- a process known as ossifying -- which will help straighten out the body and lend strength to those kicks and rolls.
eyesEyesThe retinas of the eyes appear as dark spots, and the eyelid folds are beginning to form around them.
fetal positionFetal PositionWhile many babies will wait until the final weeks to turn, some have already positioned their bodies for delivery. The head-down position is the preferred position for birth; babies that don't turn will be in the breech position for birth.
What's happening this week:
Your baby continues to accumulate fat, lose the lanugo hair on her body and grow more hair on her head. Her bones are growing stronger and she may have assumed a head-down position in your uterus by now. Your baby is around 10 3/4 inches form crown to rump, or 16 inches form crown to heel.
