What is the pattern to this sequence?

1,3,4,7,11,18,29

I figured it was plus the last 2 numbers which will then equal the next number. But I got messed up and can't figure the next 3 numbers in this pattern, any help is helpful.

THanks

    You're right.

    1 + 3 = 4
    3 + 4 = 7
    4 + 7 = 11
    7 + 11 = 18
    11 + 18 = 29
    18 + 29 = ?
