Your Baby Right Now
Your baby is almost ready to meet you! At 35 weeks, your baby is about 16 inches long and weighs about five pounds. The survival rate of babies born at 35 weeks is 99 percent.
Near the end of your pregnancy, you may notice a decrease in fetal movement. This is because there is less room in the uterus for your baby to move around. While this is not necessarily cause for alarm, you should alert your doctor if you notice an abrupt decrease in activity.
If you haven’t already, complete the pre-registration form (OB Express) online, you should do it now. About 45 days before your due date, you will need to come to Woman’s to complete your OB Express registration and sign consent forms. Registering before your hospital stay will speed up your admission when you are in labor.
You can complete your OB Express registration at two different locations: our Outpatient Lab in the Physician Office Building, or Admitting on the first floor of the hospital.
