Pregnancy Week 35: A Comprehensive Guide to Your Third Trimester

Congratulations on reaching week 35 of your pregnancy! You are now in the final stretch, and your baby is growing and developing rapidly. This week, you will likely experience a range of physical and emotional changes as your body prepares for labor and delivery.

Fetal Development at Week 35

Your baby is now about 18.5 inches long and weighs approximately 5.5 pounds. Their organs are fully developed, and they are practicing breathing and sucking. Their skin is becoming less wrinkled, and they are starting to gain some fat.

Your Body at Week 35

Your belly is continuing to grow, and you may be experiencing some discomfort, such as back pain, leg cramps, and heartburn. Your breasts are also preparing for breastfeeding, and you may notice some leakage of colostrum.

Common Symptoms at Week 35

Braxton Hicks Contractions

Braxton Hicks contractions are irregular contractions that occur throughout pregnancy. They are usually painless and do not last long. However, as you get closer to your due date, Braxton Hicks contractions may become more frequent and intense.

Vaginal Discharge

You may notice an increase in vaginal discharge during week 35. This discharge is usually clear or white and has a mild odor. If your discharge is yellow, green, or foul-smelling, it could be a sign of an infection.

Difficulty Sleeping

As your belly grows, it may become more difficult to find a comfortable sleeping position. You may also experience insomnia due to anxiety or discomfort.

Mood Swings

Mood swings are common during pregnancy, especially in the third trimester. These swings can be caused by hormonal changes, fatigue, and stress.
