Born & Birth stories

At this point in your pregnancy, your baby's crown-to-rump length is approximately 10.4 inches and the total length of your baby is around 16.7 inches. Your baby weighs about 2.7 pounds and continues to grow every day. If you measure from your bellybutton, your uterus is 3.5 to 4 inches above it. Total weight gain at this point is usually between 19 and 25 pounds.

3D sonogram of a fetus in week 29

Babies that are born prematurely can be very tiny. Even a baby that is only a few weeks early can be very small. Your baby will grow rapidly from now until week 36, and then at a slower rate thereafter. Generally, boys weigh more than girls at birth. The average baby's birth weight at full term is 7 to 7.5 pounds.

You might notice some leakage of colostrums from your breasts around this time. Colostrums is a sticky, watery substance that provides your baby's first food if you choose to breastfeed. Milk does not come in immediately after delivery and colostrums is high in calories and enough for your baby's first few days of life. Your baby is stimulating the production of colostrums. The baby's body is ensuring that there will be a readily available food supply after delivery.

Your baby will continue to open and close his eyes in the womb and may be able to see silhouettes of objects or even people in the right amount of light. Your baby should be moving many times throughout the day. Some of your baby's movements will be predictable and if you notice a decrease in fetal movements, you should lie down and do a fetal kick count. You should feel your baby move approximately ten times in an hour. If you do not notice the proper amount of movements, you should contact your healthcare provider.

Research has shown that your baby is not only able to hear, but also able to recognize your own voice. This shows that your baby can already learn, remember and recognize.

Aww twinny those pains sound like sciatica :( :( hope that stays mild for you. . When you have a BH your belly goes tight like when you experience contractions but there's no pain.. it's thrush hun I've been treated for it 4 times already during my pregnancy. . I'll ring docs in the morning cos I don't want anymore bleeding x

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 2.7 hours ago
Am in my 3rd pregnancy and coyldnt honestly tell u that I know what a braxton hicks feels like! Haha I have been experiencing pains for the last couple of days, mainly at the top of my backside of all places! Haha...and I definately agree about the pressure underneath! I'm starting to get that pregnancy waddle as my joints r aching round my pelvis area. How would u know whether u have an infection? What type of infection cud it be and fingers crossed u havent got one chick!! Xx

jojo - 3.5 hours ago
Way to go twinny :) :) excellent news about the weight gain.. I bet you'll hear a bit of good news when you go for your scan next week.. its my last day tomorrow and then I'm off until 2nd Sept woo hoo sorry to hear the rest of your family have been under the weather too fingers crossed they're all feeling better soon.. bonita waiting to hear on your results hun fingers crossed you passed and can relax. Anyone experiencing a lot of tight braxton hicks? ? I feel so much pressure below like she could just fall out lol and I've had very tight BH all day.. I have an awful feeling there's another infection brewing :(

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 6.5 hours ago
Hi girls. Jojo u have already written what I was going to say to Matoks so I will refrain from any further comment as I completely agree with what u have written but u have said it in a much nicer way than me!! Bonita how did the glucose test results go? Did u pass?....oooh hope so chick. Thanks to u both for ur thoughts for my little Maya, she is on the up but typical of siblings my other 2 have been out of sorts aswell so am keeping them all dosed up on medicine hoping to ride it out - 3 day weekend this week with it being bank holiday so some much needed rest coming my way! :o) Jojo yes my next scan is next Thursday, I weighed myself this morning and for the first time in this whole pregnancy I have put weight on since last week...4lb.....wooohooo!!! Haha...never thought i'd b happy to be putting weight ON but its all good if it means baba is padding out and shows some weight gain on the next scan, I will feel so reassured! :o) Cant believe I finish work 8wks tomorrow I can not wait!! Bonita u being a full time mum u must b as shattered as we r going to work, being home full time with the kids is exhausting! Haha xx

Hi Matoks glad to see your back and ok. I am however very sad and hurt over what you have written. Both Twinny and I have asked about you if you look through our older posts. I feel you expect a lot from us. This site is all about supporting each other which I feel we all do but this isn't the first time you have had a go over something we have or haven't done or written. I feel really sad to think you feel we don't care enough when we're all doing our best x

I'm ok can't believe it's only Tues and I am exhausted being back at work. . So don't want to be there this week I just keep thinking get this week out of the way and I'm off again nxt wk :) hope your ok bonita xx

bonitadiane - 2 days ago
Hello ladies... sorry been busy trying to keep my niece who came to stay with us for a week busy. Talk about exhausting always being on the go. Lol she went back home yesterday. I had my 3 hour glucose test yesterday. Pureeee torture. I'm not even sure that stuff is healthy. I felt sooo sick first hour and forced keeping myself from puking. Talk about worst feeling ever. I'm so glad it's over. Not sure when I'll get results. Think I'll call office tomorrow to see if they have them in. Twinny I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter being sick. Praying she feels better real soon. I can't imagine how tough it is on you. It's so tough being a mommy. A Job that never ever stops. Ever. Hoping you get back some energy too. Although I'll say I've been exhausted too. Worst part is I can't nap during the day as my body won't. And insomnia is my best friend. :( I can't believe today I'm 30 weeks. Oh my, 10 more weeks. Feels totally surreal. Does anyone know what's up with matoks? Hope all is well with her.

Sorry sorry, am here! :o) I have been absolutely shattered - my little girl Maya hasnt been too well since Saturday and I have been having sleepless nights with her and I went back to work yesterday after 2wks off so I am beyond tired, my eyes r stinging! How r u doing lovely? I'm ok besides being tired, i'm enjoying the movements- I think she has changed positions so i'm getting less big kicks and more water sensations...sounds odd that but hard to describe what i'm feeling haha I cant stop thinking about my next scan, hoping i'm given some good news that she is putting some weight on and moving up the growth chart fingers crossed!! Anyhoos, I hope ur ok after ur return to work, suprising how tired we r getting now hey haha Hope Bonitas alrite too.... Xx

jojo - 2 days ago

Hello 29 weeks!!!!

lissie**** - 10 days ago
glowingwith2// I also am getting lots of BH and belly can also feel heavy. Sorry you hurt your ankle :(

glowingwith2 - 13 days ago
I'm starting to get really strong Braxton hicks occasionally. My whole tummy gets really tight! It only does it once in awhile though. There are also sometimes my tummy feels extremely heavy, but most of the time I still feel pretty good. Some of the ladies in the FB group are having trouble sleeping now, I'm no because I'm so exhausted from working that I can't wait to get home and sleep. TGIF!! This expecting mom needs some rest!

glowingwith2 - 13 days ago
Thank you ladies. It's in pretty bad shape. I'm wearing a brace to support my ankle, but it's so weak that I nearly re-sprained it on Monday dropping my daughter off at school. :( So hard getting around nearly 8 months pregnant with a sprained ankle. Plus working all day... I'm ready for maternity leave, but I'm saving it all for when the baby actually arrives.

afshanm07 - 15 days ago
Week 29 and get well soon glowingwith2

Blondeabby - 16 days ago
Glowing -hope your ankle is on the mend:)

glowingwith2 - 22 days ago
29 weeks! I will be so happy after 30. My first was born at 36 weeks... hard to believe we are so close to the end. I went for a run on Saturday and sprained my ankle. I fell on my knee and landed on my belly. NST came back showing everything was fine with the baby. Just trying to heal my ankle now. I'm going to stick to swimming going forward. I've gained 26 pounds now. Not bad considering all I have left is 11 weeks (give or take). Ready to meet my little man! <3

monica28 - 24 days ago

30 weeks tomorrow...I appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers. I am having a very rough day. Just vomited all over the bathroom at work and had to have someone else clean it bc its a hotel and there are procedures to follow. Im so embarrassed. 😖 I feel so horrible that anyone would have to clean up my mess. Drs appointment tomorrow starts my first 2 week appointment. I currently work 2 hours from home making barely anything but its a job for now. Keep praying for us please and ill do the same for you ladies. 10 weeks left im hoping its the quickest part. Have a great day ladies.-Ash

dollbunny - 47 days ago
Yay, only 11 weeks left or less! I have been wanting to know if my babygirl is head down yet.I guess I will just have to ask the doctor at my next check up

mommy97101114 - 57 days ago
Went for my specialist's appointment Monday and got to see my little guy. He is definitely all boy and weighed 3lbs 7ozs. They also said he is head down....locked and loaded...but she did say they can really turn at any hoping he stays head down. Took another three hour sugar test to check for gestational diabetes and I passed!! Yay! 11 weeks to go! Can't wait to see what his sweet face looks like!

MrsBl0bby - 59 days ago
Hi ladies we are having our second boy! Just struggling with a name!! We have Henry William, Edward William 'Ted' for short. And Evan James :)) what do you think? Our first born is Thomas xx

mommy97101114 - 65 days ago
Ok, so I will be 28 weeks tomorrow! Yay!! Just curious as to what you guys think of the name Keller (Helen Keller's last name...she is one of my most favorite people in history!) But I have also come up with these other names using Keller...they are Kelson, Keldon, Kelton, or Kellian (prounouced Kellen)...just curious as to what you ladies think...I have been trying to come up with a boy name for months. I love the idea of calling him Kell for's different and I haven't really ever heard any boys with these names. I want something unique. The middle names I am tossing up in the air to go with one of these names are Mason, Chase, Levi, Logan, and Tayden.
