As the baby continues to develop, so does their activity level. By the time the mother is 29 weeks pregnant, those little flutters have turned into hard knocks and punches. They can be so strong that the mother can sometimes catch her breath.
If you’re noticing a decrease in fetal movement, it’s important to be vigilant and do a fetal kick count. The baby should be moving at least ten times in one hour. If the baby’s movements are absent or minimal, notify the doctor right away. The baby’s muscles, lungs, and brain are continuing to develop and mature. In the next few weeks, they should be fully developed.
As 29 weeks pregnant, the baby’s nutritional needs are highest. The mother should eat well, rest, and sleep as much as possible during this crucial development stage. Iron is important for replenishing red blood cells, so the mother should aim to consume at least 30 mg of iron daily. It is also important for a 29-week-pregnant mother to insist on a blood test that will determine the level of iron in their blood.
I am so excited about the baby to arrive! It seems like it has been taking forever, but I know that it won’t be too much longer now. I can’t wait to meet my little one and to see what the future holds for our family!
During the 29th week of pregnancy, the uterus is typically 3 to 4 inches above the navel. Many mothers will start to experience weight gain during this time, as well as increased heartburn.

At 29 weeks pregnant, mothers may start to experience edema, or swelling, in the legs and feet. This can become uncomfortable, but there are things you can do to help ease the swelling.

Pregnancy can be a delightful time for many women. Some women choose to get facials, manicures, and pedicures before giving birth. It’s also crucial to savor the last few tranquil moments with the father-to-be. Once the baby arrives, there may not be any time for peace and quiet.
