34 Weeks Pregnant

Your Baby's Development at Week 34 of Pregnancy

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.
