Your baby this week

Your baby should now weigh around 2.2kg and measure 45cm from top to toe. During the last several weeks, your little one’s fat layers are filling out, this will help regulate his/her body temperature after birth.

If you are worried about going into premature labour, you should know that 99 per cent of babies born at 35 weeks can survive outside the uterus. Although, most health care providers would ideally like you to carry up to 38 to 40 weeks

Your baby’s central nervous system continues to mature and the lungs continue to develop this week.


Your body this week

Ideally the amount of amniotic fluid peaks between 34 and 36 weeks. But by 37 weeks this should decrease to allow more room for the baby. This amniotic fluid is reabsorbed by your body, which also increases the amount of room that the baby has to move.

You may begin to notice that your baby’s movements feel different.

Other symptoms noticed in week 34 include:

  • Stretch marks
  • Mild swelling of ankles and feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Leaking colostrum
  • Flatulence
  • Constipation
  • Increased vaginal discharge
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Backaches
  • Leg cramps
