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’m going on 34 weeks and feel pretty good- except for the fact that this little girl is incredibly active and I am constantly getting beat up! The fact that she’s running out of room inside doesn’t seem to phase her one bit! She just pushes and kicks harder! I have to walk or even rock her to get some relief at times. I hope this isn’t a telltale sign of what’s to come! My 1st daughter was colicky, so I’ve been there (don’t really want to go there again..) and my 2nd daughter was just the opposite- happy-go-lucky. Guess we’ll see what number 3 has in store! I am beginning to get nervous though, as it’s been 11 years since I’ve experienced labor/delivery! Here’s hoping for a semi-easy one! :) Daddy and I can’t wait to meet/ hold her despite the fears!!!

    My baby boy loves my hot baths. But at this stage its hard to get comfortable, specially when you have a baby that wants to born to soon. But I still love the feeling of being a mommy. I’m on my second baby. Gonna have 2 boys in this world that I would give my life for.

  21. Profile photo of Roxanne Roxanne says:

    she likes when i lay down the most to do her kicks or it’s always at 5pm or so when i’m at the youth center : )

  22. This Baby Kicks and punches like crazy and also rolls over a lot it’s so fun at night to lay in bed and look down at my stomach and watch my baby kicking me. it’s too cute…

  23. Profile photo of Mary Mullard Mary Mullard says:

    i think i also can feel the baby starting to really kick, my stomach lifts up a little bit

  24. Profile photo of Haltertop Haltertop says:

    I have been able to see a punch from the outside for weeks now. The rib jabs are also not so fun. I think its because I have only gained 4 pounds, so I am not as swollen and therefore dont have as big a layer for her to punch through…?
