Baby at 34 Weeks Pregnant
Your baby’s eyes are now practicing blinking, squinting and focusing. Her fists are treating your partner’s organs like punching bags. Baby’s immune systems and digestive systems are now working on their own. Baby weighs between 4 1/2 and 5 pounds (or one fully grown Chihuahua) and is approximately 18 inches long (or slightly taller than a bowling pin).
Sounds like a pretty great Friday night, if you ask me.

Mom at 34 Weeks Pregnant
She’ll likely have a hard time sleeping these days. Not only is she thinking about the baby and the upcoming labor, but she’s dealing with heartburn and indigestion.
Pregnancy isn’t for the weak! She’s pretty much exhausted all the time, so make sure to help out extra by making meals, doing grocery shopping, cleaning and putting dishes away.
She’s got some pretty big shoes to fill. Don’t forget to put those shoes away! Mommy can’t see under than belly, dont want her to trip.
This week would be a great time to go for a walk around the neighborhood. Not only is the exercise good for both of you, but you can talk about what’s swimming around in your brain tanks.
Pregnancy Tips for Dad at 34 Weeks
It’s a good idea to start babyproofing the house if you haven’t already. Even though baby won’t move around much at first, in no time she’ll be wanting to stick her pudgy little fingers in sockets (the baby, not mommy).
Is the car seat installed yet? Make sure to get it (if you haven’t already) and install it. Ask a buddy with kids to come help if you want.
Make sure there’s plenty of gas in the car from now on in case her water breaks. You don’t want to have to be stopping at the gas station en route to the hospital.
