34 Weeks Pregnant - Signs of Pregnancy
At 34 weeks pregnant, antibodies are being passed to your baby as his birth draws ever closer. These antibodies will serve to strengthen your baby's immune system after birth.
Your baby will receive further protective maternal antibodies if you breastfeed.
If you are expecting a boy his testicles will begin to descend into his scrotum.
Your baby's brain and nervous system are now fully developed. His bones are also continuing to harden, although the bones in his skull will remain soft and separated to make the journey through the birth canal easier. He can open his eyes now when he is awake. His finger nails are fully grown.
