My Baby - 35 weeks

pregnancy due date
I’m a little less than 19 inches tall & my organ systems are complete & being finalized. I’m 35 weeks & 5 days old, only 30 days to go!

Minggu ke-35 pula, akan berlaku perubahan pada diri puan. Puan akan merasai kesukaran untuk bernafas, membuang air kecil dengan lebih kerap dan seringkali tidak dapat mengawal air kencing apabila terbatuk, bersin, atau tertawa dengan kuat. Manakala garisan gelap yang mengarah ke bawah perut sudah menjadi lebih ketara dan menonjol. Puan perlu melakukan beberapa senaman termasuklah senaman pelvik untuk menguatkan rahim.

Fetal development - 35 weeks pregnant

Your baby now weighs about 5.25 pounds/ 2.4 kilograms and measures approximately 18 inches/ 45 centimetres from head to toe. His elbow, foot or head may protrude from your stomach when he stretches and squirms about. Soon, as the wall of your uterus and your abdomen stretch thinner and let in more light, your baby will begin to develop daily activity cycles.

This week, your little one is now sporting fingernails and has a fully developed pair of kidneys. His liver can also process some waste products.

There's much less amniotic fluid and much more baby in your uterus, which has expanded to a thousand times its original size. You've probably put on between 25 and 30 pounds/ 11 and 13.6 kilograms and your weight gain has hit its peak. Even your belly button has got bigger and has popped outward. You may be feeling breathless now that the top of your uterus is up under your ribs. Try getting down on all fours to take deeper breaths. Although the pressure on your bladder will make the bathroom your second home, don't drink any less water -- your baby needs the fluids. But you may like to cut down on diuretic drinks like tea and coffee, which will make you have to urinate even more often.
