eight gain is awfully faster now, and you would have gained 8 to 10 kgs by now. If you are obese, have a checkpoint on weight. You may feel pain in buttocks, pelvic area and legs. Your uterus is mammoth now as compared with the size during the initial days of your pregnancy. You might witness painful constrictions in your body, heavy headaches and frequent urination as well. Dehydration is imminent, and you are advised to drink more water. Most importantly, you are at the risk of developing second-degree bacterial infections. Your doctor may take a vaginal swab/ urine sample and get a test done for Group B streptococcal bacterium. If positive, an IV or mild to moderate antibiotics may be suggested. Read through to know what to expect at Week 35:

  • Pelvic Numbness: Baby is descending now and insensibility at this area is possible because of the stress on a few nerves covering this area.
  • Persistent Urination: As the baby is descending and consuming more space, urinary bladder is pressured, resulting in frequent urination. Consuming more fluids to keep yourself hydrated.
