What are the changes in the body of a pregnant woman at week 35?

Your uterus protected by the pelvis has now reached below your rib cage. If you peek into the womb, you will see a comparison of the size of the baby that is greater than the amount of amniotic fluid.

Your uterus urges your other internal organs, which is the reason why you urinate frequently and may experience heartburn and other digestive disorders. You are one of the lucky ones if you don't experience these disorders.

Maintain a pregnancy that runs 35 weeks

Have you ever asked why babies cry after birth? The baby's first cry can occur in the womb and this is true. Research shows that the fetus can show crying behavior such as vibrating the chin, opening the mouth, taking irregular breath several times before exhaling and lowering the shoulders again, in response to a low decibel sound that is played to the mother's stomach. This response is shown in the development of infants in the early stages even in premature babies, so it is not surprising when babies cry in the womb before birth.

Visit to Doctor / Midwife

What do I need to discuss with the doctor on week 35?

Although the date of birth soon arrives, some babies are still developing regularly until the tenth month. If this happens, your baby may still want to stay in your womb for a longer time. Ask for your childbirth preparation for your doctor if you pass the birth deadline.

  • Blood pressure (maybe higher than the 6th month)
  • Scanning urine to check sugar and protein levels
  • Varicose legs, swelling of the hands and feet
  • Check the size of the uterus like how thin and whether it has begun to widen
  • Fundus height (upper part of uterus)
  • Fetal heart rate test
  • Fetal size, direction of birth (head or foot first), position (face down or face up)
Prepare a list of questions that the doctor wants to ask, especially regarding labor and birth, including the frequency of Braxton Hicks contractions, and other symptoms especially abnormal symptoms.
