How Big is my Baby at 29 Weeks Pregnant?

At 29 weeks pregnant your baby will weight around 2lbs and will be about 39 cm long. It’s amazing to think you’ve got just over 10 weeks now until you meet your baby and if you think time has gone quickly so far, this last part of pregnancy can actually feel really slow. Your baby is still packing on the weight and getting stronger and other developments this week include their eye focus getting sharper. Soon that gorgeous gaze will be looking up at you – what a thought!
