Welcome to the world of parenting!

An exciting journey is about to start and Mothercare, through this journal, is going to be by your side and advise you throughout your pregnancy weeks.

Get informed about everything that parents need to know such as pregnancy, baby growth, body and psychology changes, doctor examinations and appointments and of course parturition, breastfeeding and baby care.

Our midwife and lactation consultant IBCLC Ms Georgia Leze every week is going to show you a special path to a healthy and happy baby.

Pregnancy Week 29

The time before you were pregnant might now feel like a distant memory! You might be enjoying your maternity leave already, or trying to find other ways in which to get comfortable so you can relax, rest, and get a good night's sleep. Your work routine is definitely starting to get harder as your pregnancy makes your performance and stamina quite difficult.

As your baby makes the most of the ever-decreasing space available to them, he or she may move in a more vigorous manner.

  • you may have started maternity leave this week
  • you might be finding your bump is keeping you awake
  • perhaps you’re feeling a bit hungrier than usual now?

Many mums-to-be start to feel a bit ravenous about now. That's because your growing baby is demanding extra energy. It's not quite eating for two: for most women, around 450 extra calories a day is about right.

It isn't just about the calories, though. Your baby's nutritional needs are reaching their peak about now as they develop and grow. So it's more important than ever to eat a wide variety of foods, with plenty of protein, vitamin C, folic acid, iron and calcium.

The bad news is you might be suffering from heartburn or constipation. Pregnancy hormones cause muscles like the ones in your digestive tract to relax, slowing the way it moves food through your body and causing indigestion. Time to stock up with antacids.

Υour baby at Pregnancy Week 29

At 29 weeks your baby is around 39cm and weighs about 1.10kg – a bit more than a butternut squash. Their skin is smoothing out as they plump up, storing fat for all the energy they'll need in the future. The soft, downy hair which covered their body (called 'lanugo') begins to disappear around now.

Your baby's brain is rapidly developing and the head is growing to hold it. As the brain grows quickly in the skull, it also starts to coil and fold into its recognisable form, a bit like a walnut.

Their muscles are getting stronger too – you might feel it when they kick or punch! It's an active time for your baby: your doctor or midwife will suggest you count how often they kick during the day and night!

Τhings to do in Pregnancy Week 29

If you’re having trouble sleeping, try a maternity pillow which sits between your legs and supports your bump. Having a bath before you go to bed can relax your muscles or some gentle yoga will help clear your mind.

Take the time to find out which type of birth seems best for you. You have many options that you can take advantage of and it is up to you to be  informed about this from suitable professionals. Labor is a woman’s most important moment and you should not underestimate every detail. Take advantage of modern methods of analgesia such as water birth, massage use, movement and freedom of expression during labor but also the epidural.

Every day, take time to practice simple exercises that will help you concentrate on your breathing, provide flexibility to your pelvic joints, and help your baby in a better position. These actions will help you reduce the duration of your birth by 2 hours. Seize every opportunity and help yourself!
