Exhaustion has set in again this third trimester and with this growing babe, my last month at work, and transitioning Alice into a big girl bed (oy!) things have been a bit nutty around here. Can someone have a big glass of wine for me, pretty please!?!
Alice wasn't so much into the photos (or clothes) this week, but I'm embracing it as 'keepin' it real'. Here we are at 35 weeks, getting so close!!

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I be worried at 35 week bump?
There's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as every woman is different and will experience different symptoms during her pregnancy. However, some of the more common worries that mothers may have at 35 weeks include:
Breech delivery - This is when the baby's head is lying in an abnormal position compared to the rest of the body, which can lead to complications during childbirth.
Preterm labour - This is labour that begins before 37 weeks gestation, which is considered early stage labour. It is more likely to be dangerous and lead to serious health complications for both mother and baby.
Maternal death - Pregnant women who die during childbirth are usually victims of preterm labour or maternal death syndrome, which is a complex and often fatal pregnancy complication.
Gestational diabetes - Around 15% of pregnant women develop gestational diabetes, which is a condition that can lead to high blood sugar levels during pregnancy. This can be particularly dangerous for the baby if left untreated, as it can cause birth defects or even stillbirths.
If you are worried about anything related to your pregnancy, don't hesitate to contact your doctor or midwife for more information. They will be able to provide you with reassurance and guidance as you continue along your journey into motherhood!
Why is my bump so hard at 35 weeks?
It can be tough to know what to expect during your pregnancy, but one thing you can be sure of is that your bump will continue to grow and change until you give birth. Here are some key reasons your bump may be so hard:
Your uterus is getting larger - As your uterus grows, so does the amount of fluid and blood it contains. This makes your bump harder and more painful.
Your ligaments are tightening - As your ligaments tighten, they tend to pull on your bump, making it harder to move around.
Your muscles are strengthening - As your muscles get stronger, they tend to create more pain in the area around the bump.
You're releasing hormones - During pregnancy, you're releasing a variety of hormones that can make your bump feel especially painful.
If you're experiencing severe pain around your bump, it may be a good idea to speak with your healthcare provider about the best way to manage it. He or she may be able to provide you with some relief or recommend a treatment plan that you can follow at home. Thank you for choosing our website!
What to know about being 35 weeks pregnant?
From head to heel, your child measures around 46.2 cm and weighs 2.4 kg. That is around the size of two bananas standing upright and the weight of a honeydew melon. The fact that your baby is gaining weight will help keep them at the proper temperature when they are born.
