Pregnancy Week 29: Baby Growth

Week 29 is the time to start increasing your protein, iron and calcium intake because your baby’s needs have increased. Iron is important for your baby’s general growth, protein to support her/his developing brain and calcium for the hardening bones. Your baby now weighs about 1200 grams and is about 15 inches (about the size of a butternut squash) long from head to heel.

You will find that your baby is either very active or very quiet when you lie on your back. This is your baby’s way of telling you that s/he needs more oxygen, as the oxygen supply gets compressed when you lie on your back. Turn over to either side and use as many pillows as required to make yourself comfortable.
