Pregnancy at 29 Weeks

Seems like the days are going by so fast yet feels like so slow at times when I get excited about having my baby in July. I'm at 29 weeks of my pregnancy and my tummy is getting bigger and feeling tighter and tighter each day. Things are going well so far. I'm going to have another prenatal this Monday and hoping that everything will be well.

So, how's the baby growing at 29 Weeks? here's a quick information I got from babycenter.com


"Baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day".
