Pregnancy

      Pregnancy calendar - Week 35

      Bump

      Your baby’s development

      At 35 weeks pregnant your baby is now responding to light, sound and pain. As they grow, the volume of amniotic fluid shrinks in your womb – they’re now filling almost the entire space. Meanwhile, their intestine fills with a greenish substance called meconium, which is made from waste from the liver and bowel. This will be in one of the first nappies you have to change!

      You & your body

      You’re probably feeling tired and heavy by now, and the mood swings you experienced earlier during your pregnancy may have returned – making you feel irritable. Your dreams may also be vivid as your mind adapts to your upcoming life change.

      To help, try doing something fun to take your mind off your worries and give yourself a mood boost. Alternatively, talking through everything with someone can really help too.

      Colostrum, a watery fluid, may be leaking from your breasts. This is the first milk you’ll produce pretty soon after the birth. It’s extremely rich in nutrients for your new baby. Meanwhile, inside your womb, the placenta has reached maturity. When your baby is born the placenta will be about one sixth of their weight.

      Did you know?

      At this stage your baby can now blink and their pupils can begin to regulate the amount of light entering their eyes. They might even be able to notice light shining onto your tummy, and turn their head towards it!
