At 29 weeks of gestation, there are about 10 weeks to go and it is normal for anxiety and cold in the belly to accompany mom from now on.
The belly is already big, which can cause some discomfort such as back pain and difficulties to lie down, go up or down stairs and squat.
The pregnant woman also needs to take care of her diet, since some nutrients will help in the formation of the baby’s bones and blood.
For this reason, consuming foods rich in iron (red meats and green vegetables, such as broccoli and cabbage) and calcium (milk and seeds, such as soy and chickpeas) is essential at this stage of pregnancy.
Parents can still research breastfeeding, vaccinations and important care for the final stretch of pregnancy and the first months after birth.
29 weeks of gestation is how many months?
At 29 weeks of gestation, the mother and baby are in the 7th month. In this phase, the baby is already with all the organs formed, although some still need to go through a process of maturation or growth. He also starts to turn around to fit the mother’s pelvis and wait for the delivery.
In this phase, the cells responsible for controlling body temperature are already developed. In addition, the nervous system and billions of neurons are already present in the brain and body of the little one.
The baby’s skin, which was previously wrinkled, now begins to become smooth and pink. Nails and some hair (such as eyebrows and eyelashes) can start to grow at this stage.
