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.

The Right Medicine

On a hot summer day an elderly gentleman faints in the street. A small crowd immediately gathers around him.

“Give the poor man a glass of brandy,” advises a woman.

“Give him a heart massage, ” says someone else.

“No, just give him some brandy,” insists the woman.

“Call an ambulance," yells another person.

“A brandy!”

The man suddenly sits up and exclaims. “Shut up, everybody,and do as the kind lady says!” continue reading...

Today the surrounding energy will be trying to teach you something, specifically, how to share with others. But first you must get to a place where you truly want to share something of yourself. Have you examined your tendency to run away? You seem to be afraid that they’ll overwhelm you or that you’ll owe them something. This isn’t the case. Why not give other people a chance to get to know you?

You have become quite a wanderer today! Even while working, your mind will roam from one thing to another. It’s best to focus your energy on important issues and try to work harder since it could improve your life. Stimulate your mind and feel free to join a class if your instinct is pointing in that direction. Keep a positive attitude and an unbiased mind if you really want to move forward.

Surround yourself with well wishers today. Interact with those who bring our the best in you and encourage you to follow your heart. There is nothing wrong with showing your feelings, both positive and negative. Intimacy cannot grow if you, or your sweetheart, hide your most honest reactions.

A male friend could introduce you to people from foreign countries or people who have traveled a lot. They might have valuable information that you could use later. This information could also help you finish old projects that have been waiting to be done. Your eye for detail is especially acute. Make notes of interesting facts even if they don’t apply right now. You’ll make good use of them later.

If you happen to be training for a new trade, learning a new technique, or perhaps you’re being evaluated after an internship period, you can expect these pursuits to conclude on a high note. You may have been somewhat afraid that those in authority would frown upon your originality. On the contrary, it seems the people in charge appreciate it more than you know.

Your friendly and persuasive nature is strong today. It will be easy to talk people around to your point of view. Enthusiasm and good humour make you a very desirable team player. Do be somewhat cautious about saying everything you are thinking. Some people do not appreciate the unvarnished truth.

Picking up a hitchhiker on the side of the road may at first seem quite risky, but could actually prove to be a rewarding and enriching experience. Dispel the myth of the “dangerous stranger,” in which there is always fear of something or someone unknown. Take a risk with the unknown today and don’t let your fears keep you from missing out on a potentially wonderful experience.

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.

Friends are a positive influence. The more reasons you find to laugh, the better you’ll feel. Say yes to anything that inspires your imagination. This is a positive time to make changes at work. Older people may need more attention, and here again, laughter is good medicine.
