In our pregnancy week by week guide, you can find out what to expect when you’re 35 weeks pregnant.

You at 35 weeks pregnant

Your face might be puffy in the morning, and your feet and ankles might be swollen by the afternoon or evening.

Put your feet up as much as you can. A little bit of walking each day will also help get the swelling down. You might need to rethink your footwear.

Getting closer to the big day
As the birth gets nearer, it’s natural to think about labour and how you might manage it.

Knowing what to expect and what your options are can be a big help – especially if you’re worried. Talk with your doctor or midwife, ask questions and go to birth classes if you haven’t already.

You’re probably also getting excited about meeting your baby and might be busy getting clothes and equipment ready, cleaning the house and organising stuff. These are all signs that you’re getting ready to be a mum.
