35 Weeks Pregnant: Helpful Tips for Parents

Some parents start thinking about "babyproofing" their home around 35 weeks of pregnancy. Realistically, you do not need to worry about doing this until after your baby is born -- more than likely, he or she will not come home and stick a finger in an electrical outlet! You can babyproof your home gradually, as needed. Things to start thinking about include:
 
  • Covering electrical outlets
  • Removing choking hazards
  • Installing smoke alarms
  • Placing foam around hearths and edges of coffee tables
  • Blocking off staircases (with a baby gate)
  • Putting locks on cabinets.
 

35 Weeks Pregnant: A Pregnancy Myth

Myth: If it is stormy out (or if there is a full moon), you are likely to go into labor.
 
When and how you go into labor is completely dependent upon your body, and a chain of events that occurs for your body to prepare for labor. It will happen when your body is ready.
