Fetal Development – Week 30

Week 30:

The fetus is usually capable of living outside the womb and would be considered premature at birth.

Call or text us today to schedule your ultrasound.

Vision, hearing, taste, and touch are all being used now.  The baby opens and closes her eyes and looks around. Research shows that the child can recognize her mother’s voice.

The most accurate way to determine how far along you are is to have an ultrasound.  During an ultrasound at ACPC Women’s Clinic, one of our nurses will take measurements to determine the gestational age of the baby.  The first and earliest ultrasound is usually the most accurate of ultrasounds throughout your pregnancy in determining gestational age.
