29 Weeks Pregnant: Baby’s Development

At 29 weeks pregnant, you are beginning your third trimester of pregnancy. Your baby is approximately 13 inches from head to toe. The baby can open its eyes and focus them. Your baby is still developing fat under the skin.

29 Weeks Pregnant: Common Signs and Symptoms

At this stage, your baby and womb are pushing against your abdomen, and this is causing heartburn. This occurs when acids that are normally used in the stomach to digest foods are pushed upward out of the stomach and into your esophagus.
Eat small amounts often, and avoid fatty and spicy foods. Drink milky drinks often. If this doesn’t help, consult your physician.
Another problem that can develop at this stage is varicose veins, which are swollen, bumpy veins in the legs. Putting your feet up whenever you get the chance can ease this problem. You start having stretch marks and your belly button pushes out during this stage.

29 Weeks Pregnant: Self-Care Tips

  • Start sleeping on your side. Research has shown that going to sleep on your back is linked to an increased risk of stillbirth.
  • At this stage, applying for maternity leave is essential.
  • Try not to be discouraged at this stage. If you get tired easily when you climb stairs or exercise, you can slow down.
  • It is not too late to travel on an airplane in week 29 of pregnancy.

Your baby weighs between 4½ and 5 pounds and measures about 16 inches long. Your baby is fully developed, but its skull is still tender.

You need to take care of yourself as you prepare for delivery.

If you have a vaginal delivery, you will need the following items. Practicing using them before your due date can make your recovery time easier.

Peri bottle: Fill this plastic container with warm water and indirectly spray your vaginal area while urinating. The spray stops the sting of urine and soothes delicate tissue.

Anesthetic spray: Use a pain-relieving spray after bathroom visits or after changing a pad to numb your vaginal area.

Doughnut pillow: Sitting on this type of a cushion takes the pressure off your sensitive perineum, which is the area between your vagina and rectum.

Stool softener: Consult your doctor to recommend a gentle stool softener.
