Week 35 starts on day 245 and goes up to day 252.
It is your 36e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 43.5 centimeter / 17.1 inches
Weight of your baby: 2500 gram / 5 lbs 8 ozs

The baby is now fully developed. The only thing still developing is his brain. This huge development will continue until long after birth.

Your baby has hiccups more and more often and now that has so little room to move, you'll notice feel more distinctly.

If your baby has not engaged yet, your uterus will have reached its highest point. This rather squashes your lungs and you could feel quite breathless. In fact, your lung capacity could be as much as 25% less than usual.

Your bladder is also decidedly cramped for space, meaning you will have to wee more frequently. Urinary loss is normal during pregnancy, especially during the last weeks. The sphincter closing your bladder is not as effective as usual, but this is only temporary. This will right itself again once you've given birth.

If you are in any doubt as to whether the leaked fluid is urine or amniotic fluid, have a closer look at the colour and smell. Amniotic fluid is clear and smells sweet. Many women confuse the thinner vaginal discharge towards the end of pregnancy with amniotic fluid but vaginal discharge is white.

If your waters break once the baby has engaged, there is no need to call the midwife out straight away. It is a good idea to notify them though. Take a good look at the colour! If the amniotic fluid is not clear, but brown or green for example, then you should alert the midwife immediately. This indicates that the baby has pooed in the amniotic fluid, which can be dangerous!

If the baby has not yet engaged and your waters break, call the midwife straight away. Lie down as quickly as possible as it can be dangerous if the baby engages after the waters have broken. The umbilical cord could get caught round the baby's neck.

Hard belly

You may frequently feel your bump go hard. Your body is preparing for labour. Your uterus is contracting and that makes your bump go hard. Sometimes this can go on almost all day, but there can be days that it doesn't happen at all.

A hard bump can also be caused by your doing too much. In that case, take it as a sign to do less and rest more.

Two days away from being 36 weeks pregnant! It has been so hard for me. He has a hole in his heart and will need surgery when he is around four months old. Almost went to the hospital twice for false labor. Driving me crazy because I get so excited thinking he`s on his way. Longer time in the tummy means a healthier heart in the long run though. I`m naming him Valentine ;)

@NiyaLuv - “@leadionnee - “35 ...„
Yes ma`am she came when I was 39 weeks and 1 day. And don`t worry if your baby hasn`t moved down yet. You`ve still got some weeks to go. My daughter didn`t move down until 18 hours before she came. ND you`ll dilate when you`re in labor. Don`t stress yourself

@leadionnee - “35 weeks and 3 days ...„
