My Pregnancy Week 34

Pregnancy Week 34

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you. Measuring about 17.5 inches long, she now weighs over 5lbs! And from this week, until two weeks before birth, she will continue to gain about a half-pound of weight each week. Unlike the first trimester, the weight between all babies in the third trimester is much more variable. Some babies weigh more and are taller; other babies weigh less and are shorter.

Also unlike the first trimester, by week 34, not much is changing. Your baby continues gaining weight through the development of subcutaneous fat, and with that weight, is probably gaining strength in his movements. You may even be startled by a sudden jab to the ribs, or be able to see a punch to your belly from the outside!

      I do love watching these — it’s like talking to a fun and smart friend about what to expect. I’ve learned a lot from watching her videos. Funny how certain things bother some people, but not others. Aside from that, what is your favorite thing that you’ve learned from the My Pregnancy Week by Week videos?

    I went to the hospital Sunday night only to be disappointed. I was have contractions and the nurses were trying to get them to stop but they couldn’t buy Monday night they put me on the magnesium it didn’t get my contractions to stop but it spaced them out far enough where I got to come home. they gave me Procardia to take every 6 hours or when needed when my contractions start to act up again! I am now 35w 1 D wish I could be holding my son in my arms by now!

  4. It is the homestretch now for baby no.2. I am finally looking forward to the end…been a long pregnancy with complications this time. I will be glad and grateful once I meet my little guy or girl.

    • Avatar of MommaRaetz MommaRaetz says:

      I would go to the hospital just to get checked out since you are only 34 weeks and you said its getting brighter. Anytime you have bright spotting or period like cramping you need to be check if you have not hit 37 weeks.

    Im 34 weeks and my baby girl is already dropped and I think when I go to check myself up there I believe I can feel my baby girls head dont no if that cause she already dropped and in the position to be pushed out or what cause I have a daughter she is 3 and I had her at 35 weeks.

    • Avatar of Kim ShannonEditor Kim Shannon says:

      Hi Beverly – That’s so exciting! I’m definitely not a doctor, but if you think you’re feeling the baby’s head, I’d call your doctor’s office asap and tell them that. They might want to check you out, especially if you had your last child early too. Good luck!

    34 weeks and I am so ready. This is my first baby and I’ve had a good pregnancy. She has decided not to turn so we may have a c section, but I’m hoping she’ll cooperate for a natural birth. We are so excited and can’t wait for her to arrive! Good luck and God bless everybody!
