Guide to Being 29 Weeks Pregnant


Don't Worry If…

Babies are often head facing down at this point, but don't stress if your baby is still head up (also called the breech position). He still has plenty of room to turn around to prep for his big debut in a few weeks. Babies often turn at the very last minute.

You may also notice your blood pressure increasing a bit. As your baby gets bigger, your body works harder than ever to keep everything running smoothly; your doctor can determine if you need extra time to rest to help keep your blood pressure at a healthy level.
