At 35 weeks of pregnancy, the baby already has the exact features that will be born and all of its organs are already in perfect working order, except its lungs that are in the process of maturing and are producing liquid ensuring that they will not stop functioning when the baby is born and begins breathing.

The baby at 35 weeks of pregnancy can measure around 46.2 centimeters and weigh 2.383 kg . It is in the final stretch of its development and now it gains weight daily. Their movements are increasingly scarce due to the lack of space in the uterus , but it is still possible to notice sudden movements marking the belly, especially when passing an elbow or a foot.

At this stage the baby’s kidneys already work and his liver is able to do its job of filtering the substances correctly. The amount of amniotic fluid is decreasing every day this is a result of the baby’s occupation inside the uterus which is getting bigger and bigger. Her uterus has grown so much to fit the size of the baby that it is a thousand times larger than its normal size.

How is Mom Feeling …

Mom is in the final stretch! Now anxiety can start to take over you and Dad, but know that those moments that seem to drag on are the most delicious to feel the baby and I advise you to enjoy every moment. All pregnancies are different from each other, even if you have more children, the pregnancy is unique and with its particularities.

With 35 weeks of gestation, contractions of training , bad nights and cramps can torment the mother , but calm, the time of delivery is coming and when we see the baby’s face everything, everything passes and the feeling of reward is the best of the world! Mom, if you haven’t ordered the souvenirs now, it’s about time! Soon the baby will give the air of grace and it is a race against time to get everything ready for the long-awaited baby’s arrival.

Plan yourself to be able to rest as much as possible, especially if you work outside and have not yet taken a leave of absence. Taking a good nap after lunch or stretching your legs makes a big difference. During this period, it is common for your gynecologist to schedule prenatal appointments every 15 days or weekly to monitor more closely.

At 35 weeks of pregnancy, it is possible that you will be asked to perform the strep test to assess whether you will need to take antibiotics at the time of delivery. Don’t worry because the test is very simple and the result is very fast!

External factors…

Pee queen! This is how the pregnant woman can feel in the 35th week of pregnancy. It would be nice to have a lymphatic drainage section, it helps to eliminate liquids and the pee can decrease. If hydration is necessary, drink the right drink, coconut water, water, natural juices and avoid teas that can increase the urge to pee, diuretic drinks like some teas and sodas and keep an eye on blood pressure as it is so preeclampsia at this stage is dangerous .

Have you decided which type of delivery to take? Normally, due to the mother’s health situation, it is already possible to have an idea of ​​which delivery the mother is a good candidate for, whether normal or cesarean delivery ?
