Pregnancy Week 29

Your 29th Week of Pregnancy - The Third Trimester



Your Baby - 29 Weeks Pregnant

Pregnancy Week 29 Your baby can open his eyes and will turn his head towards a source of any light. His sensory organs are well developed. His fingernails and toenails are growing and he is beginning to regulate his own temperature. The bone marrow is completely in charge of production of the red blood cells now. Your baby even urinates about a half liter of urine into the amniotic fluid every day. Your baby weighs about 2.5 pounds and is over 15 inches long.

The movements you feel will probably begin to change at this point. You once were the home of wild gymnastics parties, but now as the space becomes cramped you will notice smaller movements, such as elbows and knees poking you.

This time next year you will have a 41 week old baby!

Your Body - 29 Weeks Pregnant

Pregnancy Week 29 Remember, the irritations of pregnancy - the itchy skin, hemorrhoids, urinary incontinence, varicose veins, leg cramps, swelling, shortness of breath and feelings of discomfort - will pass with the birth of your baby. Also remember that as your baby is growing, so is your body. You may feel as if there is not enough room inside you for your organs, but rest assured, there is. The best ways to deal with the discomforts of late pregnancy are to maintain proper nutrition, drink plenty of fluids, practice good posture, exercise and rest whenever you can.

Your fundus is approximately 2 1/2 to 3 inches above your navel at this point.
