Your baby at 29 weeks

Your baby continues to be very active at this stage, and you'll probably be aware of lots of movements. There's no set number of baby movements you should feel each day – every pregnancy is different.

You should be aware of your baby's own pattern of movements. If this pattern changes, contact your midwife or hospital to tell them.
