The due date is not far. You have already passed the difficult phases of pregnancy except for the labor. If this is your first time, you may find yourself in a chaos, worrying about the complications of labor as well as the role of mother that you have to play after your baby is born. Don’t worry, once your baby is born, you will start learning things on your own. The challenges you face the first year are enough to make you a good mother.
Development in 35th Week Pregnancy
At 35 weeks pregnant, the growth of your baby is slowed down, though she is still growing. Fats continue to build-up around her shoulder areas and other parts of body. Except for lungs, which are still growing, all the rest organs are fully formed by now.
These last few weeks are extremely vital for the growth of your baby’s lungs. These need to be developed by the time of labor so that she can breathe on her own after being born.
Appearance in 35th Week Pregnancy
Look-wise your baby is pretty similar to the full term baby. The hair on her head is thicker as well as longer compared to few weeks back. It is worth noting here that the dark-skinned babies usually have more hair compared to light-skinned babies. The hair on babies head can grow up to 4 cm. The body of your baby is still covered by a waxy vernix.
Movement in 35th Week Pregnancy
By 35 weeks pregnant, your baby has now learned to respond with different facial expressions and body movements. Loud noises make her startle, while she also reacts to the changes in light. The sound she hears is half the volume that you can hear normally. If you play anything to her liking, she might respond by moving her arms or legs in appreciation.
