Pregnancy Home > 34 Weeks Pregnant
Fetal development that is occurring around week 34 of pregnancy includes the following:
- The skeleton hardens, although the head remains pliable to maneuver through the birth canal
- The skin becomes less red and less wrinkled
- The toenails are present, and the fingernails have reached the tips of the fingers
- Your baby is developing immunities to fight mild infections.
Babies who are born at 34 weeks can usually survive outside of the womb without extensive medical intervention.
