Thirty-Week Visit

Body Changes

Your breasts may leak enough to wear padding in your bra. You may notice some swelling of your feet, ankles, and hands by the end of the day – especially if the weather is warm or you have been on your feet a lot during the day.

Contact us if the swelling is excessive or accompanied by headaches or changes in vision.

Fetal Growth
