My Body in the 29th Week

Trimester 3 of your pregnancy

Normal weight gain by this week ranges between 8.6 and 11.3 kg. The extra weight you're carrying and the expected interruptions in your sleep are probably starting to make you feel a bit more tired.

You're also less nimble—and that's not surprising, because your center of gravity has changed and you probably can't even see the tips of your toes when standing upright. Slow down a little now—things will be quite busy soon enough!

My Baby in the 29th Week

Your baby now weighs a little over 1 kg and measures almost 38 cm in length. His fat stores may have grown enough to form dimples on his elbows and knees. Baby can hear so well that he will startle at loud noises, and soon he'll begin turning his head to listen to sounds coming from outside your womb.
