35 Weeks Pregnant

As you finish your 34th week of pregnancy, it will be natural for you to feel a little anxious about labour pains and birthing. Talk to your doctor about all the doubts that you have.  And in any case you will be visiting him more frequently now. This is to allow him to monitor your health and that of the baby as your due date draws near.

Changes in Your Body at Week 35

Your baby moves to your pelvic region during this phase – in the head down position. This will reduce the pressure from your chest and ribs but will increase that on your bladder. This will increase your urge to urinate.

Your Baby’s Development at Week 35

Your almost 18 inch long and six pound heavy baby will continue to plump up till birth happens. This fat provides it with energy and helps it to maintain body temperature.

However, 99% of babies born in this week do survive outside the womb.

The fingernails are fully developed at this stage but the ones on the toes are still forming.

The eyelids would have opened by now and your baby would be blinking. The iris is also light sensitive and will contract and dilate depending on the amount of light that it is exposed to.

The lanugo slowly begins to disappear as you from from your 35th to the 36th week of your pregnancy.. And instead grows the vellus hair to replace it.

Week 35 Tips and Advice

If you haven’t already then now is a good time to start doing the Kegel exercises. These strengthen your pelvic muscles thereby preparing you for the extra pressure that you will face  as the baby moves into the pelvic region. Also doing pelvic tilts before bed time will help you to fall asleep more easily.

Pelvic numbness and pain can happen at this stage. And can well continue till the birthing time. If it cause you too much of discomfort then do speak to your doctor.

Lack of enough water will cause the swellings on your face and limbs to increase. So do drink plenty of fluid throughout the day and especially before bed time.

Use a few pillows under your feet to keep them slightly elevated. This will control the swelling.

One of the signs of labour is the show. This is when the mucous plug passes through your vagina. This happening does not mean that your labour has begun. But you should speak to your doctor about this.

Our Short Guide to Managing Pregnancy gives you more such tips to handle the last few days of your pregnancy better.

Week 35 Fun

Just in case if you didn’t know, sexy and fun maternity lingerie is available. So slip into a fun teddy printed one or a sexy lacy one and enjoy a nap.

Keep your phone camera handy. Try and get a video of those times when your little one is kicking your tummy. You sure will miss those once he or she is out of your tummy.

Are you suffering from swollen feet? Are you using pillows to keep them elvated at night to reduce the pain? Join our due date club here and share your thoughts with other mums-to-be.

Your Fortune For Today
Thursday, August 21st, 2014

This is a day for fun, drama, and celebration. Even if you have a long list of responsibilities, be open to making life more colourful and enjoyable. You may startle your family with what seems like a sudden or unexpected move. Investigate thoroughly any proposed purchase or major change.

This can be a very exciting day. You may be feeling a greater desire to find ways to express your creative vision in practical or material ways. It is a time when you can make important contributions to your community. Accept invitations from friends to get out and have fun.

This is a big day to get things done, but you must focus on one thing at a time. Do the best you can with less money or fewer resources. Be very direct about asking for what you need. A big smile can open doors and change people’s minds.

Stress could take a toll on you today. You might temporarily lose your ambition and be left wondering if it’s all really worth it. This isn’t a good day to start projects or engage in important discussions. Stay home and get some rest if you can. Treat yourself to a good book and some ice cream.

Today you will need be a little meticulous with your planning. Carefully organise your tasks since you may be flooded with them and trying to just do them without thinking may be disastrous.

Today, anxiety may rule your head for better part of the day. You might have a feeling that something is wrong and may be twitchy and nervous the whole day. There is a chance that you may go on a wrong track with this mindset so make sure to take deep breaths and relax, especially before making any important decisions.

Paperwork involving money could be a real drag for you today. It will be important to get it done but you will want to just leave it and go elsewhere. Try to channel your energy into getting the work done quickly rather than thinking of bailing. After a morning of intense, tedious work, you’ll probably be ready for some entertainment like a movie or sports event. Have fun!

Although you’ve been feeling especially strong physically over the past few days, today you might feel a little under the weather. You could even experience some giddiness. This is nothing to worry about, but you should try to take it easy. Don’t exercise if you don’t feel up to it. Get some rest. Even if you have to postpone some chores, you’ll be better off in the long run.

The planets want to make a deal with you today. Either you stay in bed fantasizing about life as a CEO or rock star or you get up, get dressed, and do what you have to do to make your dreams come true. Try and convince yourself once and for all that you don’t have to lose your childlike wonder when you enter the real world. That never goes away, no matter how old you get!
