34 Weeks Pregnant

As you visit your doctor now, he would begin preparing you for the different stages of labour. All don’t make it till the fortieth week. And so it is best for you to know about labour at this stage itself.Read our guide to pregnancy to understand more about what you should expect as your due date draws near.

Changes in Your Body at Week 34 Pregnancy

As you finish 33 weeks of pregnancy, your baby moves down to your pelvis area. This reduces the pressure on your chest and lungs.

At 34 weeks of pregnancy chances are that your belly button becomes a sensitive spot for you and might even be protruding out.

Swelling in your face and limbs is likely to increase at this stage. But if it is accompanied by headaches, dizziness or abdominal pain then do tell your doctor. It could be a sign of pre-eclampsia.

Your Baby’s Development at Week 34 Pregnancy

At 34 weeks of pregnancy the baby is now perfectly formed with the right proportions of a new born. It just needs to gain some more weight before it is ready to come out.

Except the lungs, most of the other organs of the baby are fully mature by now. All babies who are born at this stage however survive. They might experience some breathing difficulties though.

As fat stores increase, its facial features become more distinct.

Week 34 Pregnancy Tips and Advice

Before you enter the 35th of pregnancy, your doctor might ask you to do a vaginal culture for Group B Strep bacteria. This bacterium is present in the vagina and bowel in some women and can cause infections in the new born during birth. If you test positive for it then he will give you intravenous antibiotics during labour to reduce the chances of infection in your little one.

Most of the swelling in your body is due to water retention. And believe it or not, the therapy for it is to drink more water.

To avoid heartburn, eat six to seven small meals in the entire span of the day rather than two to three big meals.

While you are settling your hospital bag, do find out if you need to take changes and diapers for the baby. While many provide for them, there are some that do ask the parents to get their own.

At 34 weeks of pregnancy talk to your partner and decide on how and who will be looking after the older kids (if there are nay) during the time you are in labour and for the initial few months after the arrival of the new born as well.

You will hear a lot of bad birthing stories from people. It is human tendency. It will be all about how painful it is and how difficult it is. Just buy yourself a pair of good ear plug and shut them all off.

Week 34 Fun

Read up a little on what to expect in the last few weeks of your pregnancy and what the complications that can arise are. The more informed you are the better prepared you will be.

At 34 weeks of pregnancy take a check of all the household supplies. And stock up everything from food to toiletries in excess. Once the little one arrives you won’t have time for anything.

Wash all those baby clothes that you have bought or your mother has kept from your childhood days.  Use gentle detergents that are labelled hypoallergenic and remember that anything that goes near your baby’s skin should be free of any irritants.

Week 34 Have a Laugh

A boy is given homework on childbirth.

He goes to his mother and says, ‘How was I born?’ ‘The stork brought you to us.’ Says the embarrassed mother,  

‘Oh,’ says the boy. ‘And how did you and father get born?’

‘Oh, the stork brought us too,’ says the mother.

‘And Grandpa and Grandma born?’ the boy persists.

‘The stork brought them too!’ says the frustrated mother.

A few days later, the boy hands in his homework with the following opening sentence, ‘This report has been very difficult to write due to the fact that there hasn’t been a natural childbirth in my family for three generations.’

The Good Old Days

An elderly man remembers the good old days:

“When I was young, my mom could send me to a shop with a single $, and I would bring back 5 pounds of potatoes,  2 breads, a bottle of milk, a piece of cheese and 10 eggs.

Nowadays that’s impossible – there are simply to many security cameras!" continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Network as much as possible with people you like. The contacts you establish now can be a foundation for a better life in the months ahead. The best plan you make will be a mix of visionary and practical elements. Avoid moving too quickly or spending more than you have.

You might be a bit confused with the mood of the day which fosters quick action and a sporadic approach to things. More than likely, this approach isn’t exactly in line with your usual methodical protocol. Do what you can to merge with this energy in order to add a more spontaneous spark to your daily routine.

Unexpected developments might interfere with your home life or with plans to spend a quiet evening with your family. This could have you feeling a little down at first, but don’t let it get to you. Whatever you do today might open doors that will benefit both you and those close to you.

You’ve worked hard for your money, and today you should reap the benefits of your efforts. Earnings, investments, property values – all should be worth considerably more than they were a year ago. Love, sex, and romance should also be going well, although you might have a few difficulties coordinating your schedule with your partner’s. Bask in the glow of your success.

Favorable energy helps to calm the stormy emotional seas today. Creature comforts and financial security will be a major focus. Indulge in a special dessert or other sensual treat. This is a lucky day to start a relationship based on a mutual desire for financial gain. Stubbornness works against you.

A sum of money above and beyond your usual income could come your way. This could be a bonus, settlement, or even a gift of some kind. You could put it to work making changes in your home, perhaps repairs, perhaps remodeling or redecorating. This may seem like a daunting prospect, but you’ll have the energy and enthusiasm in addition to the money. Go to it.

At first, events today may not seem so lucky. But if you persevere with a positive attitude, doors will open and people will be supportive. Stay in close touch with those you like best. This is a great day to get as many little chores out of the way as possible.

Today your patience may be tested quite a bit. So make sure to keep a cool and calm head when dealing with situations today. You may have tempers flaring at work or frustrations building up at home. Try to take a lead in calming everyone rather than letting it explode. It will be important to keep emotions in check or words will fly that people may regret.

It’s important for you to find your strength through calm and quiet rather than from being loud. It’s only then that you will be taken seriously and people will be more receptive to the things that you
would like to share.
