Pregnancy guide: week 29 of being pregnant - You may be getting cramp in your calves at night as your muscles work harder carrying the extra weight about.
You could start maternity leave this week if you notified your employer in time. Over the next few weeks your breasts may increase by up to a third of their usual size. You may be getting cramp in your calves at night as your muscles work harder carrying the extra weight about. If cramp strikes force your heel right down to stretch the muscle. If you are planning to practice labour positions then this is the time to start. Squatting is great as it encourages your pelvis to open.
Your baby's eyes are the colour of muscle, slate grey and the irises can now dilate and contract in response to light. Your baby is now small but perfectly formed. By now there is quite a variation in size and weight between one baby and another. In the next 11 weeks your baby will probably triple in weight. All organs are fully developed but will continue to mature in readiness for the birth.
