Pregnancy Week 35

Baby Development

By this week, the baby has grown up like that spaghetti squash. Due to a decreased space, the baby wiggles and tries to roll instead of kicking and punching the uterine wall. The baby starts to pad up, during which fats’ primary role occurs. He is fully developed and putting on flesh on his skinny limbs. The baby heads downward, facing the cervix, almost ready for the parturition procedure. The brainpower of the baby is developing at an incredible pace. Fortunately, the skull is pliable, soft, and squeezing for easy delivery.

Changes in mother

The urinary incontinence is due to the baby’s head. Since the baby has his head down, he exerts pressure on the mother’s bladder leading to frequent nature calls.

Sneezing, coughing, or a usual laugh might spill water from your bladder. It’s nothing to feel ashamed of, as it’s normal for an expecting mother. The only way to overcome this is by letting yourself pee without holding off fluids.

Pregnancy Week 35 symptoms

  1. Occasional headaches- There are chances of pounding or reeling heads. Several reasons might accompany the issue, including being overheated or stuck in an ill-ventilated room. It is nothing to worry for; better to go out to the fresh air to rejuvenate your mind.
  2. Bleeding gums- The gums might get loosened or bleed, for instance. It might be fixed by taking plenty of vitamin C to boost gum strength. Fruit drinks, berries, oatmeal, cereals, and tossed tomatoes might help in replenishment.
  3. Skin rashes- There are chances that the baby bump might get itchy, and rashes will take it over. The rashes are benign and harmless for the baby; if they are annoying, it’s better to go for a home remedy, aloe vera.

Important Tips

What to do

  1. Pregnancy hormones might make the mother clumsy upon breathing, so it would be wise to keep nasal strips for the needful. It would help to relax the nasal mucous membranes.
  2. Immediate lying or sleeping after eating should be avoided, for it might elevate the acid present in the stomach, thus leading to heartburn and acidity.
  3. It’s better to chew the food thoroughly. As a result, the stomach would have less work to do.
  4. Chewing sugarless gum can also be helpful as it incites the release of saliva, which can neutralize the acid in the esophagus.

What to avoid

  1. Avoid sugar consumption as it’s not good for both of you. In such cases, the mother should take food in terms of calories rather than quantities.

When to Consult a Doctor

  1. Most doctors recommend acetaminophen as the remedy for headaches, but overdoing the medications won’t be good. If the body isn’t responding to the drug, visit the doctor; this can trigger preeclampsia.


The baby has grown up like that spaghetti squash. The baby wiggles, rolls, pads up and heads down for easy delivery. This head-down position of the baby causes the mother to have trouble urinating, and she would also have headaches, rashes, and bleeding gums. Use nasal strips,  chew food thoroughly, take sugar-free gum, and avoid sugar.
