35 Weeks Pregnant

Baby's Development

Virtually the entire uterus is now occupied by the baby. This restricts baby's activity.

Your Developments

Backaches are often caused by muscles and ligaments relaxing in preparation for the stretching required in delivery, and also by the added off-center weight of the enlarged uterus. The placenta is nearly 4 times as thick as it was 20 weeks ago, and weighs about 1 lb, 4 oz (570 gms).

Pregnancy To Do's for Week 35

Back exercises, such as the 'pelvic tilt' can help strengthen back and abdomen muscles. Wear comfortable low heeled shoes or flats. Avoid heavy lifting.
