Born & Birth stories

Your baby now weighs over 5.5 pounds and its crown-to-rump length is approximately 13.2 inches. Your baby's total length is around 20.25 inches at this point. Your uterus is now 6 inches from the bellybutton and the average weight gain is approximately 24 to 29 pounds.

Most pregnant women begin to feel cramped and heavy around this time and often become tired of being pregnant. Some women feel like they do not have to room to breathe or eat. You should eat small, but frequent, meals and rest as often as you can throughout the day. Your cervix will begin to dilate and efface within the next few weeks to make room for your baby's head to emerge from the birth canal. Your cervix needs to be 10 cm dilated in order to deliver your baby.

This week of your pregnancy your baby's fingernails will have definitely reached the tips of his fingers. When your baby is born, his nails may look long and pointy. Your baby is less likely to scratch himself at this point because of the lack of room in the uterus. Fat deposition will still continue and your baby is getting chubbier and rounder. Your baby's shoulders are plump at this point.

The baby begins to develop its own immune system.

Expected due date is 10/31 I am 35 weeks and 4 days pregnant with my 4th daughter. Been having stabbing pains in my lower back and pelvic the last 2 nights. Hurts so bad I can't sleep. Help!

monkeymomma - 20 days ago
I only have 4 wks to go!! (having a C-section) I am finally ready for her to come as far as her room, supplies, little crib in our room, etc.

Kekea - 38 days ago
I satarted loosing my plug at 35 weeks as well. I had a sweep done once and my water broke two day later. Im sure you will go into labor soon afterwards...

1morefor4 - 38 days ago
I had a membrane sweep at 37 weeks with DD and nothing but then I had it redone at 38 weeks and went into labor the next day. With DS2 I had it done at 39 weeks and went into labor that night. I'm hoping that at my 38 week appointment it puts me into labor if I haven't gone on my own by then. We'll see. I lost another chunk of mucus plug but it wasn't big and didn't have the 'bloody show' look so I'm not worried about it much. If my midwife offers to check for dilation at my appointment in week 36 while doing the GBS swab I'm still on the fence about knowing.

Kekea - 41 days ago
Lol. Oh wow all September babies!!! Mzdallas I had one at 35.2 weeks and I was about 1 cent and baby was still high. I had a lot of mucusy discharge ( assuming it was bits of mucus plug) a few days later. I opted out of one at 36 weeks but I think I will have one at 37. 1morefor4 im getting a sweap at my 38 week check as well. For my first daughter my water broke two days after the sweep.

mzdallas06 - 42 days ago
Kekea! You are from my Tribe! Lol. I call it the 'back2backbabies' Tribe. LOL! Not to mention all the little kids were born in September, and it looks like this last little guy will follow suit. Question: has anybody had an internal exam? I'm kinda scared to have one bc they seem to 'get the ball rolling' for me. :(

1morefor4 - 42 days ago
I was just telling DH yesterday how I'm so over being pregnant. I'm hoping that at my 38 week midwife appointment (3 weeks to the day from now) that when she does my membrane sweep it quickly puts me in labor. I'm ready to hold my daughter in my arms and move on to the next part of this journey. I only have a few more things to do to get ready for her arrival and that should done within the next week.

RowdyRandi - 42 days ago
Kekea my weight gain at 28 wks was 10 lbs but since being on the gestational diabetes diet I've lost 6 so I'm only up 4 lbs from my pre pregnancy weight

Kekea - 42 days ago
Mzdallas06 looks like you will have a baby pretty soon how exciting!!!

Kekea - 42 days ago
MZdallas06 I fill your pain i've been pregnant 5 times in the last 7 years...

mzdallas06 - 42 days ago
Hi everyone! I see everyone is progressing and its so exciting! I'm so over being pregnant. I am SO done. But I've been pregnant every other year since 2011 so yeah I'm OVER IT! I'm headed to the doctor Thursday to have my group b test, then next week I get my circlage stitches out, which is exciting because my doctor said I most likely won't make it a week without the stitches :) I still have some things to get but I'm READY emotionally & physically. This pelvic pressure is really driving me nuts.

Kekea - 42 days ago
I got my group b strep results back today and they were negative. I chose not to get the internal exam. Good management with your gestational diabetes RowdyRandy is your weight gain still looking good. Im up 15 lbs so far. 1morefor4 sounds like you will be more than ready by 36.2 weeks. Im 36 weeks now and I feel my body preparing for labor. It is nice to recognise the signs and it is also bitter sweat to see an end approaching...

RowdyRandi - 42 days ago
Saw dr today. Andrew is about 5 lb 11 oz (43%). Had my GBS test done so should get results this week. My cervix has not changed at all:( I guess its ok at least i know he'll make it to full term. My sugars have been so good dr told me i don't have to prick my finger 4x a day anymore. I only have to prick 1x a day and none after baby's born. So yay!

1morefor4 - 42 days ago
Can't believe I'm down to 34 days until my due date. I've been in apparent nesting mode the past 2 days while dh is away. I've cleaned the whole house and am now putting au clean clothes. I packed the kids overnight bags minus the things i need to go buy this week when dh gets back. And I'm going to put the car seat back together today. I have to go shopping for most of what i need in my hospital bag but I'm going to see what i already have first. Then i just need to get the things from my MIL and set them up. Going to need more hangers for baby clothes. Hoping to have everything finalized by 36 weeks.

Kekea - 43 days ago
Lucky you Paula. I lnow the cervix pressure is the worse during contractions...

PaulaSoon2b8 - 43 days ago body is crazy...and I guess my babies want to stay in as long as possible. The only nice part about it is when the baby remains high up through the majority of labour contractions hurt much less one little guy I was 8.5 cms in active labour but thought it was merely Braxton hicks because there was literally no pain....just regular squeezing. That was nice :) But I mistook it for false labour....he was almost born at home....luckily I had an appointment that day and my friend convinced me to go in early...I was convinced it was false labour because it was painless bad :p

RowdyRandi - 43 days ago
Wow Paulasoon2b8. I think if i was that dialated and no baby id be upset and going to my sis to jump on trampoline lol

PaulaSoon2b8 - 43 days ago
That darn mucous plug lol. They can shed and regrow...usually the full plug comes out right before or during actual labour contractions. I am having some mucous shedding, but Ill never forget the day with my son I lost the whole complete thing during a contraction while I was It was very large, and mixed with white, yellow, pink and brown...unmistakable!! Its so exciting to read about every ones progress...I can walk around 5 cm's dilated but still no effacement or dropping of cervix seems to remain up high until right before birth with me. babies don't drop down until the last minute:)

RowdyRandi - 44 days ago
I'll be getting an ultrasound and GBS test. GBS was positive with my first but doesn't mean it will be this time

RowdyRandi - 44 days ago
Woohoo 35 wks! Have my appt tomorrow. Really hoping my cervix has done something. I might cry if it hasn't.

mamalira - 44 days ago
I am feeling alright. I am measuring small but my midwife doesn't seem concerned. I make small babies so I think we are just sticking to tradition. I am definitely on nesting mode and feel like baby is starting to sit lower already.

Kekea - 45 days ago
How have you been feeling mamalira?

Kekea - 45 days ago
Thanks mamalira. I went to the specialist a few days later and my bp was excellent so I think that im going to make it to full term...

mamalira - 45 days ago
Wow keka!! I have missed a lot this last few days! I am keeping my fingers crossed that she holds out a bit longer!!

mamalira - 45 days ago
Wow keka!! I have missed a lot this last few days! I am keeping my fingers crossed that she holds out a bit l

Kekea - 46 days ago
RowdyRandy I know your excited!!! Ive never lost a plug so soon. And never lost it at all with my last one. We are all so close and our bodies are preparing.

RowdyRandi - 46 days ago
Wow kekea won't be long for you. I never lost my plug with first til i was already in hospital but my water broke at home. I have my appt tuesday for ultrasound, gbs, and I'm hoping he'll check my cervix too. I'm interested to see if any dilation &/or effacement has occurred yet

Kekea - 47 days ago
I think im loosing my plug. Had some mucusy discharge today. On a vright note my appointment with the specialist went well. My b/p was great so I am hopeful...

Kekea - 48 days ago
Thanks Paulasoon2b8. Yesterday was tough for me. I took today off so that I could do the 24 hour urine sample. Work has been really stressful! Ive been doing everybodies job and I am just worn out. I think im going to cut my hours and slowly transition away. No unusual swelling just a constant mild headache. Im hoping it's just pregnancy induced hypertension instead of preeclampsia that way I can keep her in longer. Im just not ready to have her yet. This is my last pregnancy and I just want to hold on to these next few weeks. The thought that I may be delivering next week is frightening but whatever is best. As uncomfortable as being pregnant is I really enjoy it. It's nothing like sharing your body to grow a little person that is all for you.

PaulaSoon2b8 - 48 days ago
Hang in there Kekea and baby to be. Are you still working...may be time to take your leave and rest up. Sometimes there just isn't much you can do with BP but definitely rest are you having a lot of unnecessary swelling at all with it? That can be a dangerous sign....keep an eye on it for sure!

Kekea - 49 days ago
Well my appt. Did not go as well as I would have liked. My blood pressure was high despite taking methedopa 500mg 4 times a day which is the max dose. I have to do a 24 hour urine sample to check for protein. Needless to say I could be delivering sooner rather than later. Im praying that they find no trace protein and that it is just pregnancy induced. I am really not ready to deliver.Had my gbs done. Also have bv(ugh). 1 cent dialated...

Kekea - 50 days ago
Lol. One week closer for us!!!

mamalira - 50 days ago
Keka I like that you told me that you have decided to be done for the same reason. It makes me feel less crazy! I told my husband I wouldn't mind having more children it just won't be happening from my body. LOL

mamalira - 50 days ago
OMG 35 weeks!

kekea - 52 days ago
Happy 35th week to baby and I!!!

jamie86 - 62 days ago
I think he turned right at 35 weeks. I woke up to some super strong movements one night. Now I think he might be too big to try and turn again.

beckym - 63 days ago
Mine is head down too, huge enough that I don't think that will be changing any time soon, not that he or she hasn't tried, extremely painful when the baby feels like they are trying to turn sideways.

mrscephas - 63 days ago
Good for you, jamie86. I'm hoping for a VBAC within the next 2 weeks or they whisk me off to theatre again.

jamie86 - 63 days ago
Found out for sure that my baby boy is finally head down! So so glad that he is. I was terrified of a csection

jamie86 - 63 days ago
My first had meconium too.

beckym - 64 days ago
When my water broke the first pregnancy, there was meconium, so they were rushing me.

jamie86 - 64 days ago
I'm surprised they gave you anything that far into labor. They wouldn't give me anything after 8cm with one of my kids.

beckym - 65 days ago
That is how I was with my first! I was great up to like 8.5 cm pain med free, then they said they had to give me petocin, I asked if I could try just a little longer without it, got to 9 cm, they said I had to have the pitocin, and so I caved because I was afraid it would make it so intense that I wouldn't be able to handle it, I asked for something mild, they gave me nubain, which didn't really help, put me to sleep between contractions so I would wake up in excrutiating pain not ready for them when they started, sort of hitting the ground running, I would have been better off without it! Plus it ended up causing breastfeeding issues with my son where he couldn't latch on. I had to force him to breastfeed for the first 6 months of his life because they told me I wasn't giving him enough milk and they had me supplement with formula so then he was a lazy breast feeder.

jamie86 - 65 days ago
Oh I'm sure you won't have any issues going pain med free. I've always caved and gotten something through the iv and then instantly regretted it because it didn't help any.

beckym - 65 days ago
Yep we have enough pain to endure without burning IV liquid added to the mix. Once again I am aiming for no pain meds and it scares me a little thinking about it. 2 out of 3 were pain med free, and I wonder if I can still manage that much pain, I am 31 now and no spring chicken, here is hoping that just made me tougher, lol.

jamie86 - 66 days ago
Becky exactly! I remember needing the antibiotics with my first and they burned. Don't want to deal with that again.

beckym - 67 days ago
Here's hoping for negative. One less IV fluid to worry about.

jamie86 - 67 days ago
I was positive with my oldest and then negative with my other 2. Hoping to be negative again.

beckym - 68 days ago
Ooo ok group b strep, I didn't recognize the abbreviated version, I have been positive and negative for that in the past.

jamie86 - 68 days ago
Mrscephas- yes I'm still on them. The plan was to stop at 38 weeks but dr said today I should stop at 37 weeks. I'm measuring 4 weeks ahead. So not sure if that means maybe I'll have him sooner then later or what. I go Tuesday for an ultrasound to double check position but they think he's head down now. Will also check his weight. Becky it's the group b strep test they do. Makes sure I don't have that and don't need antibiotics so it doesn't pass to the baby during child birth. It can be fatal if it does get passed on.
