The fetus in week 30

on the body decreases and the skin becomes less wrinkled
as the subcutaneous fat begins to form. Nails on both
fingers and toes have now grown out. The pupils also
react to light so it detects if you sunbathe your
As for the internal organs of the fetus, the bone
marrow produces red blood cells. And the kidneys begin
to secrete urine.
Even though it starts to get crowded inside the
uterus, the baby can still move. Some fetuses are
already starting to spin around so that the head is
down, while others do not do so until much later (or not
at all, which is called the seat position).

pain, so-called joint discharge. Pregnant people also
get other back pain that is caused, among other things,
by the heavy weight of the stomach.
Good tip s in week 30

what has happened and, in consultation with the employer, has been given other
