Pregnancy Update: 29 Weeks

This week it has really dawned on me that time is passing. I need to start thinking about hospital bags and making sure we have everything ready for when the baby arrives!

By this point in my pregnancy with Ella, the signs of preeclampsia were already present- especially swollen/puffy face, feet & ankles. Fortunately everything is looking good at the moment and I have no signs of preeclampsia, let’s hope that’s the way it stays!

I had a midwife appointment this week, my blood pressure & urine are completely fine still. Bump is measuring spot on and we listened in to baby’s heartbeat again which Ella loves! 

I also had my whooping cough jab this week, that was all fine. I always find that it’s not the needle that hurts, but the liquid stings as it’s going into your arm!

The app on my phone says baby is the size of a winter squash at 29 weeks, weighing around 2.5lbs and measuring about 15 inches crown to heel. 

This week I have continued to suffer with cramp in my calf, particularly at night, but some days there has been a constant dull ache. Towards the end of the week it has eased so I’m hoping that’s the end of the worst of it!
