Contenido del artículo

At Happymami, we know that the 35th week of pregnancy is an important process. You are entering a phase where every day counts, and your baby is preparing for delivery. As midwives with years of experience and a solid backing of scientific evidence, we are here to guide you through this exciting and transformative stage.

This week is a time of great expectations and final preparations. Your body and baby are making the necessary adjustments for labor, and your mind may be full of questions about what’s to come. At Happymami, we want you to feel supported with reliable information and practical advice to help you navigate these changes with confidence and peace of mind.

Join us in this article as we explore what to expect in week 35 of pregnancy, from changes in your body and your baby’s development to how to manage symptoms and prepare for labor. We’re here to make sure you feel prepared, informed and excited for the arrival of your little one. Let’s discover together what this week has in store for you!

35th week of pregnancy: development of the baby

As you enter the 35th week of pregnancy, your baby is going through a crucial phase of growth and development. At Happymami, based on our midwifery experience and the most current scientific evidence, we want to offer you a detailed overview of the progress your little one is experiencing right now.

Physical Growth: Your baby is steadily gaining weight, accumulating fat that will help regulate his or her body temperature once outside the womb. In this week, the average weight is around 2.4 kg (5.3 pounds), although this may vary. Its length from head to toe is approximately 46 cm (18 inches).

Organ Development: Your baby’s kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste. Most of their basic physical development is complete, and their main task is to continue to grow and mature.

Maturation of the Nervous System: Your baby’s brain continues to develop rapidly, and is beginning to regulate some bodily functions such as breathing and temperature regulation.

Breathing Readiness: Although your baby has been getting oxygen through the placenta, his or her lungs are almost fully developed and ready for outside air. She is practicing breathing by inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid.

Movements and Reflexes: Movements may be less vigorous than before as the space in the uterus becomes tighter. However, you should feel regular movements, which are a sign of fetal well-being. Reflexes, such as sucking, are fine-tuning, preparing your baby for feeding after birth.

Sleep: Your baby already has a sleep pattern, alternating between sleep and wakefulness. May react to sound, light and touch, indicating increased sensory sensitivity and sensory development.

Physical Appearance: Your baby’s skin is softening and clearing up. Lanugo, the fine hair that used to cover their body, begins to disappear, although there may still be traces at birth.

35th week of pregnancy: symptoms

As you reach the 35th week of pregnancy, your body is in the home stretch of this incredible transformation and you may experience a variety of symptoms. At Happymami, we want you to be informed about what you might feel during this stage, always with the support of our experience as midwives and scientific evidence.

Fatigue: At this point, it is common to feel more tired. Weight gain and hormonal changes can make daily activities more strenuous. Listen to your body and rest as much as you need.

Pelvic Pressure: As your baby grows and positions for delivery, you may feel additional pressure on your pelvis and lower back. This can also lead to an increase in the frequency of urination.

Difficulty Sleeping: Finding a comfortable sleeping position can be a challenge, and you may be awakened frequently during the night, either by the need to go to the bathroom or by your baby’s activity.

Braxton Hicks contractions: These practice contractions may become more frequent and more intense as you get closer to labor. Although they can be uncomfortable, they are normal and help your body prepare for labor.

Swelling: You may notice swelling in your feet, ankles and hands due to fluid retention. Although it is a common symptom, if the swelling is sudden or severe, you should consult your doctor, as it could be a sign of preeclampsia.

Heartburn and Slow Digestion: Your baby’s growth can put pressure on your stomach and intestines, which can result in heartburn or indigestion. Eating small, frequent meals can help alleviate these symptoms.

Changes in Vaginal Discharge: You may notice an increase in vaginal discharge. If the discharge changes color, has a strong odor, or if you experience itching or burning, you should consult your physician.

Intense Emotions: As the day of delivery approaches, it is normal to experience a roller coaster of emotions, from anticipation and joy to anxiety and fear. Talking about these feelings with your partner, friends, family or a professional can be very beneficial.

Remember, if you have any concerns or if you experience symptoms that seem unusual, do not hesitate to contact your health care team.

35th week of pregnancy: whooping cough

As you move into your 35th week of pregnancy, it is essential to consider important health issues that can affect both your well-being and that of your baby. At Happymami, we highlight the importance of preventing whooping cough, a disease that can be particularly dangerous for newborns.


Clinical guidelines recommend vaccination, as it is a powerful tool in the prevention of pertussis. The Tdap vaccine is recommended during the third trimester of each pregnancy because it provides two key benefits: it protects the mother from infection and, more importantly, it transfers antibodies to the baby, providing a layer of protection until the baby can receive its own vaccines.


Receiving the Tdap vaccine between 27 and 36 weeks ensures maximum transfer of maternal antibodies. This is crucial, as infants are not fully vaccinated against pertussis until they are several months old.


Knowing the symptoms of pertussis is vital. If you experience a persistent cough that worsens over time, it is essential that you seek medical attention immediately. Early treatment can not only help you recover more quickly, but also reduce the risk of transmitting the disease to your baby.

Week 35 is a time to focus on our care, keeping health as a priority, as you prepare for the arrival of your little one.

35 weeks pregnant

How does the expectant mother feel in week 35?

Reaching 35 weeks of pregnancy is a significant milestone in your journey to motherhood. At Happymami, we understand that this period can be both exciting and exhausting, and we want to make sure you feel supported and understood.

Physically, you may feel heavier and fatigue may be more present in your daily life. Your baby’s growth is not only visible but also palpable, with movements that can be both wonderful and uncomfortable. Pressure on the pelvis may intensify as your baby positions for birth, and this may translate into more frequent visits to the bathroom and a slower, more careful gait.

Braxton Hicks contractions may become more noticeable, preparing your uterus for labor. Although normal, if they become regular and painful, it is important to contact your health care professional.

Emotionally, you can be on a merry-go-round of feelings. Anticipation of meeting your baby can be mixed with anxiety about labor and the changes to come. It is normal for doubts and fears to arise, as well as a sense of impatience to finally see your child.

Also, mentally, you may be going over to-do lists, from preparing the baby’s room to making sure everything is ready for delivery. The need to have everything under control can be overwhelming, so it is essential to seek moments of relaxation and disconnection.

35th week of pregnancy: Happymami tips

In the 35th week of pregnancy, you are in a time of great expectation and preparation. From Happymami, we want to give you advice based on the latest scientific evidence.

Rest becomes a fundamental pillar. Listen to your body and allow yourself moments of rest whenever you need it. Restful sleep is essential for your health and that of your little one. If your doctor approves, continue with gentle exercise such as walking or swimming, which will not only help you stay active, but can also relieve stress and promote blood circulation.

Nutrition remains a key issue. A balanced diet, rich in iron, calcium and protein, will support your baby’s continued development and keep you strong and healthy. Don’t forget hydration; drinking enough water is crucial for maintaining a good flow of fluids in your body and for your baby’s well-being.

Now is also the time to think about final preparations for delivery. If you haven’t already packed your hospital bag, do so with peace of mind, making sure to include what you need for you and your baby. Review your birth plan, if you have one, and communicate your wishes to your health care team. Consider attending a childbirth preparation course if possible; this can provide you with valuable tools and increase your confidence for the birth of your child.

Prenatal care should not be neglected. Keep going to your doctor’s appointments regularly, as they are essential to monitor the progress of your pregnancy and the health of your baby. Also, if you haven’t already done so, talk to your doctor about the Tdap vaccine to protect against whooping cough and provide immunity for your baby.

Emotional support is as important as physical care. Share your emotions and concerns with your partner, friends or a support group. You are not alone in this journey, and expressing how you feel can be incredibly liberating and comforting. Practices such as meditation and prenatal yoga can be beneficial for managing stress and keeping you centered and connected to your baby.

Finally, use this time to educate yourself about childbirth and newborn care. Reading and preparing can make you feel more in control and ready for the challenges and joys to come. Also make sure your home is prepared for your baby’s arrival, from safely installing the car seat to having the sleeping space ready.

Remember that for easier motherhood, having a Happymami bottle designed to fit the shape of your breast can be a great help. Whether you are going to breastfeed, mixed or artificial breastfeeding directly.

Because with a Happymami bottle designed with the shape of your breast, you increase bottle acceptance rates and also prevent your baby from the nipple confusion factor.

Frequently asked questions about the 35th week of pregnancy

Is a breech birth always a cesarean section?

A breech delivery, where the baby is positioned to be born buttocks or feet first rather than head first, does not always result in a cesarean section, but it does increase the likelihood that one will be recommended.

In some cases, an external maneuver known as external cephalic version (ECV) may be attempted to turn the baby to the cephalic position before delivery. Discuss this with your midwife or gynecologist because it may be a good option.

Is it normal to feel less movement of the baby in week 35?


As the space in the uterus shrinks, some babies may move less. However, you should continue to feel regular movements. If you notice a significant decrease in activity, contact your physician.

What should I do if I have contractions in week 35?


Braxton Hicks contractions are common and often intensify toward the end of pregnancy. If contractions become regular, painful, or accompanied by any other signs of preterm labor, such as changes in vaginal discharge or pelvic pressure, it is important to seek medical attention.

How do I know if the pain I feel is preterm labor pain?


Preterm labor pain may include regular contractions before 37 weeks, low back pain that feels different from previous pain, pressure in the pelvis, and changes in vaginal discharge. In the face of these symptoms, it is crucial to consult your doctor immediately.

What tests or examinations should I expect at medical appointments from now on?


During medical appointments in week 35, you may have fetal monitoring to check your baby’s well-being, an ultrasound to assess position and growth, and tests for Group B Streptococcus (GBS) and other conditions.

Should I be sleeping in a specific position?


It is recommended to sleep on the side, preferably on the left side, to improve the flow of blood and nutrients to the baby. Avoid sleeping on your back, as this can cause problems with your circulation and that of your baby.

Is it safe to travel by air during week 35?


Many airlines have restrictions on travel at the end of pregnancy. In addition, air travel may increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Consult with your physician before making travel plans.

What are the signs that I should go to the hospital or call my doctor?


You should seek medical attention if you experience any signs of preterm labor, vaginal bleeding, a significant decrease in the baby’s movement, or if you have symptoms of preeclampsia such as severe swelling, severe headache, vision changes, or upper abdominal pain.

[B] Escogemos el flujo según la edad del bebé.

Recuerda que si vas a usar cereales, tienen una densidad mayor a la leche líquida, por eso tenemos disponible un flujo exclusivo para cereales y/o papillas

matrona

[LM] Existen corrientes de usar un flujo menor correspondiente a la edad del bebé.

Con Happymami no hace falta, nosotras para desarrollar nuestros Happymamis estudiamos la lactancia materna en su conjunto. La eyección de leche materna, el flujo de salida en cada etapa, la succión del bebé, las necesidades del bebé…. Y a partir de ahí desarrollamos nuestros flujos.

Entonces si tú tienes un bebé de 4 meses y le pones un flujo para bebés de 2 meses, lo que probablemente tenga más riesgo es que tu bebé rechace el biberón.

Por eso nuestra recomendación es que cojas el flujo que le corresponde por edad, y sigas las pautas que te daremos al realizar tu compra para que tu bebé coja el biberón sin afectar a tu lactancia materna.

[B] Si tu bebé sufre muchos cólicos necesitamos un biberón con un sellado total, que corresponde a la inclinación pronunciada. Por el contrario, usaremos una inclinación media, para casos aislados de cólicos. Y una inclinación suave en casos especiales indicados por nuestras matronas.

matrona

[LM] Puedes ponerte de perfil y observarte el pecho.

  • ¿Tienes un pecho totalmente plano? cogemos inclinación suave.
  • Si acaba totalmente en punta, escoge inclinación pronunciada.
  • O si más bien es redondito, inclinación media.

Si tienes dudas entre cualquier forma y redondeado, nuestro consejo es que cojas la inclinación media que corresponde al redondeado.

matrona

[Biberón exclusivamente] Si es el primer biberón que vas a usar desde el nacimiento, nuestra recomendación es que escojas un pezón medio. Por otra parte, si tu bebé ha usado ya otros biberones y los rechaza, o si al usar el chupete le genera muchos ascos y arcadas a tu bebé escogeremos pezón pequeño.
