My Pregnancy Week 29

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 29

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring roughly 15 inches long, he weighs close to 2 1/2 lbs. For the first time, his head is in proportion with the rest of his body! By 29 weeks, his brain can control his body's temperature.

Her eyes can move in the sockets, and her muscles and lungs continue to mature. Her bone marrow is now producing red blood cells, and fat continues to develop under her skin. She may even begin to settle into the proper birthing position, which is head down, facing your back.

    My boobs are leaking. Not like a drip here and there like the last couple of weeks, but literally pouring out of me sometimes. My man calls it boob juice and laughs when it leaks all over the place. I’ve read that it’s normal for some leakage, but I’m talking soaked shirt here. Why don’t they warn us about that?!

      Ha! Sorry to hear, Erin! We do mention it in one of our week by weeks… Get some reusable/disposable nursing pads! You could also consider starting to pump, but discuss this with your OB before you do so. Best wishes!

    I am 29 wks and 2 days. Although this is my 6th child and it’s been only 2 yrs since I’ve been pregnant, it helps me to come back to this site and brush up on the things I’ve forgotten. Not only that, I enjoy hearing about all the other pregnancies and the joys and concerns of other expectant mothers. This pregnancy is unlike the rest. I am high risk and I have a cyst as well as too much amniotic fluid. But I get through the complications thinking about my little prince and how blessex I am that he’s healthy in there.

    I’m 29 weeks and 3 days today…My first child and my hubby to be’s 2nd child. It’s such a blessing to be having him due to him looseing his son at 8 months old to sids. So it’s kind of like a 2nd chance with a family for my fiance and I. I’m starting to not be able to sleep at all though, every couple of days I will sleep maybe 5 hours if that long and I’m starting to have really bad pains in my right side and he moves so much, it’s nearly impossible to ever get comfortable. I run out of breath so easily and get so tired from just standing up more then 10 minutes at a time. Plus I’ve been having nightmares of me and my little bundle of joy dieing, either in delivery room, or at home falling or something…Being a first time mother, I have NO IDEA if these things are normal. It would help if some moms would let me know if this is normal, I don’t have a mother to talk to about most of this… Can’t wait for my son to be here!!! 🙂
