29 weeks pregnant: Fast facts
Your baby weighs about 2 1/2 lbs (roughly the weight of a butternut squash) and is a bit longer than 15 inches.
Muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and your baby's head is growing to make room for that developing brain.
Some swelling of your ankles, hands, and feet is normal. Call your provider if you notice signs of preeclampsia: facial swelling, puffiness around the eyes, more than moderate swelling of the hands, or excessive or sudden swelling of your feet or ankles.
You may feel clumsier than usual. It makes sense: Your body is bigger, your belly has shifted your center of gravity, and hormones are making joints and ligaments looser.
Has pregnancy made you hairier? Most expecting moms say yes – especially on the belly!
