Weeks

35 weeks pregnant

Your baby’s development

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. Your baby may well pass this during labour if they become distressed – if not, it’ll be in one of the first nappies you have to change!

Pregnant

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.
