Week 29 – Mom Are you suffering from a nagging or stinging pain in your lower back or near the pubic bone? This could indicate pelvic pain. Some women suffer from this during the pregnancy, as the pelvis undergoes many changes during the pregnancy and has to work hard.
You can probably feel the buttocks and feet of your baby when he or she moves. If the baby is lying with its head down, the feet are now pressing against your stomach and midriff and you may have to sit down and rest more often.
The baby is now over 36 centimeters long and weighs 1100 grams, the size of an acorn squash. Your baby is developing a fixed sleeping pattern under the influence of an increasingly maturing brain. The brain is also able to control a number of things itself, such as body temperature and breathing.
Your baby can hear sounds even better now. Your baby can hear your heartbeat, the pumping of your blood and the sounds of your digestion; it is never quiet in your belly. He or she can also hear your voice and music. Some newborns calm down when they hear music their mother listened to a lot during the pregnancy.
