Few of the symptoms which you may notice at 30 weeks are:
Forgetfullness is quite common starting from your second trimester and sometimes will continue even post-delivery. But this symptom is nothing to worry about. Once all the hormonal upheveals find a stability, your usual memory will come back and forgetfulness will become a thing of the past. Sleeplessness, fatigue, anxiety, and hormonal spikes can cause your forgetfulness, also termed as pregnacy brain since this is one symptom unique to pregnant women.
There are multiple reasons for shortness of breath, one of the most common pregnancy symptoms. Sometimes, a mundane task such as walking a few steps can find you gasping for breath. Your heart is working faster, you are putting on pregnancy weight, your hormones are working on full force, your uterus is growing. All these factors can cause breathlessness. Needless to say breathlessness is not serious and will resolve once your have delivered your baby.
The human body is a wonderful creation. Did you know the main reason behind constipation during pregnancy? Your digestive system moves slowly to ensure maximum absorption of nutrients from your food so that your baby can have the best nutrition possible. This slow movement, of course, causes you inconvenience, and the best way to combat it is by staying hydrated and eating fiber-rich foods.
Experiencing acidity along with constipation? Don’t be surprised. When your digestive system is working slowly, heartburn is a common consequence. Most to-be-mothers go through both these symptoms. Staying hydrated and having fiber-rich foods will help combat acidity too. Along with this, you can avoid foods that trigger heartburn such as coffee and tea, spices, and deep-fried foods. Your aim should be to eat foods that are nutrient-rich and at the same time easy to digest.

Baby’s brain was smooth until now. This week expect it to have those characteristic grooves and indentations. Baby’s brain surface now gets more wrinkly and is called convolutions. This is because it can hold more brain cells.
This week you can expect your baby’s hands and legs to be fully formed. You may also get the chance to watch your baby grab its foot and put the toes in the mouth. Oh so cute!!! Right?
One of the major milestones this week in terms of your baby’s development is, now the bone marrow cells have taken over the production of red blood cells. Earlier the spleen and tissue cells took care of this.
