29 Weeks Pregnant

| September 29, 2011 | 1 Comment

The pregnancy is getting more and more difficult, but it’s time to focus on the positive side of pregnancy so that the aspects that may appear gloomy can be pushed to the background. For one, have you noticed how you’ve grown closer to your family, especially to your own mother? Once you were a baby yourself, and now you’re getting ready to bring a baby into the world. Such is the circle of life. And even this small fact makes you understand your mother unlike anything else can.

How’s the baby coming on?

Regulate body temperature

  • At 29 weeks pregnant, your baby’s head is in perfect proportion to his or her body: No alien-like huge disproportionate head attached to a minuscule, virtually insignificant body any more.

  • The brain is already able to regulate the body temperature, while the bone marrow is producing all the red blood cells needed by your little one.
  • The baby now weighs around 1.16 kilograms
  • It is urinating half a liter into the amniotic fluid every day
  • 3.5% of the body weight of your baby is now comprised of the body fat accumulated under the baby’s skin.
  • The baby is also subject to occasional hiccups, which the mother would feel as a fluttering in the tummy. This is a normal occurrence as the baby lungs are preparing for breathing oxygen upon birth.

Changes inside the Mommy

You’re probably feeling the many discomforts of pregnancy like never before. These may include:

  • leg cramps
  • exhaustion
  • frequent urination
  • back pain
  • shortness of breath

All of these are due to the fact that your baby is squeezing in all your other internal organs such as your bladder and your lungs.

Eating the right kinds of food

Maintaining good posture is particularly important during the third trimester; now that the baby is big enough to be affected by any bad position you might place yourself in. You need to take care to maintain good posture throughout the day – try not to slouch, as this feels comforting at first but increases the pain later. Keep eating the right kinds of food that will provide nourishment to you and your baby. Drink lots of fluids, exercise regularly, and rest as often as you can. Keep following a balanced diet plan. Remember, once the baby’s out, you won’t be able to sleep anytime you want to, so make sure you rest yourself as much as possible.
