Few of the symptoms which you may notice at 34 weeks are:
Your breats will continue to grow and feel heavy until you give birth. The mammary glands are preparing for breastfeeding. Some women may find that their breasts are leaking. You can buy maternity or nursing bras for extra support at this stage, especially if you are experiencing leaky breasts.
Blurry vision is one of the lesser symptoms of pregnancy. Fluid retention, common during pregnancy, can also happen in the cornea part of your eyes, leading to blurry vision. Changes in the cornea due to hormones, high blood pressure, and diabetes can all lead to blurry vision. If worried, you can talk to your paediatrician.
This happens due to the hormone progesterone. This hormone causes more blood flow to the uterus to support your growing bean. As a result, the blood flow to your brain reduces, your blood pressure reduces, and you will experience dizziness and this is normal during pregnancy.
Fluid retention is common during pregnancy, especially at the later stages. By the power of gravity, this fluid retention, also known as edema happens in your legs and feet, causing swelling. Your ever growing uterus also puts pressure on your legs, cutting down the blood supply and leading to a fluid build-up.
