Mother & baby
At 35 weeks pregnant, your baby weighs about 2.5kg (over 5.5lb) and is now gaining about 14g (0.5oz) of fat a day. She's about 33cm (13.2in) crown to rump long and 45cm (just over 20in) including her legs. Her brain is developing rapidly, so if you've been under stress at work or home, try to relax.
The jury's still out on exactly how much your state of mind can affect your baby's progress in the uterus, but recent studies suggest there may be a link between extremely stressed mothers and low-birth weight babies. Plus, after an earthquake in Italy in 1980, 28 pregnant women who had been frightened but unharmed were scanned to check their babies were okay. All the babies were very overactive, and remained that way for several hours. Take it easy…
No room to move?
At 35 weeks pregnant, after you have had weeks of the baby kicking you relentlessly, your baby may have called a truce. Try not to worry if you don't feel her as often as before: she simply hasn't got room to move. (But if you are concerned, get your midwife or doctor to listen for a heartbeat at your next antenatal check-up.)
If you've been concerned about giving birth early, stop worrying now. Around 99 per cent of babies born at 35 weeks survive, and most are completely healthy.
