The weight of your pregnant belly will be around 18 to 24 pounds. But, if you are expecting twins, the weight will be around 22 to 37 pounds. At this point, you may feel a lot of kicks inside your belly. It is the moment when your baby starts to be pretty active and a bit crowded. You should do kick counts every day in order to find out that your baby’s level activity is consistent. The baby usually moves around 9 times in less or around two hours.
If you do not feel any movement of your baby inside your belly, you do not need to worry. What you should do is to drink some cold water and play music.

At this point, your baby’s jabs and kicks are stronger than before because your baby gets a little cramped in some places. It means that he or she grows! Sometimes you also will feel a repetitive twitch and subtle feeling. It is actually your 29-week-baby’s hiccup. Amazing!
But, if you are expecting twin, your membrane which is actually a thin wall has already built between both of your babies. Your cute babies are definitely feeling a little bit crowded inside your belly! With a prenatal visit schedule that you have, we suggest you do not visit your doctor at this 29 week. You should visit him or her for the 30 weeks pregnant. The reason is that at this point, doing an ultrasound will only capture your baby’s growth of white fat that can be found under the skin. It also captures her or his energy that is surging because of that fat.
