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.

JDH - Feel better!! So far my house is healthy. I'm hoping they stay that way for the remainder of winter / spring! I'm a little behind; just coming up on 34 weeks but getting close none the less:) We are starting to make progress at home; finally painted the boys room. I can't believe we are having a baby soon!! My two boys were late so I'm totally prepared for going past 2 weeks. Who knows. I'm just big and tired but other than that, I feel pretty good.

35 weeks is unbelievable! I'm sitting on my couch at 1am with a stuffy nose and upset stomach. PRAYING it doesn't get any worse. All three kiddos have bad head colds too.

Yes, you are! Looks like our due dates are just 3 days apart! One more month today for me!!!! It feels so close, yet so far away! Why does January have to be such a long month!? My husband is convinced that we are going to go early though. He's predicting not long after 38 weeks. I've been feeling pretty good! The swelling has gotten worse though. My feet look like Flintstones' feet by the end of the day and my ankles disappear :( I now have to sleep with pillows under my feet. The reflux can still be bad too at night, but I'm sleeping pretty good. I don't seem to mind the kicks at night. I sleep right through them. Generally, I just have to use the bathroom one time at night and then I'm right back to sleep. Hope everyone is feeling well as we wind down our last few weeks of pregnancy and prepare to meet our Little Ones!
