40 Weeks 40 Facts: Week 34

by | Apr 23, 2021

Fact #34 for the 34th week of development! Week 34: Since the baby is getting so much bigger, there is less space to move around in! The baby is moving closer down to the pelvis in order to get ready for delivery. At around 5 lbs now, the child continues to gain weight and fill out with fat.

The lungs are almost fully developed, so they can breathe independently after birth. Keep talking to the baby, especially in high pitched tones, because they can hear you very well! #40weeks40facts
