You at 35 weeks
Labour that starts before 37 weeks is considered premature. If your baby is born early, he or she may need special care in hospital. Find out what to expect if labour starts early.
You'll probably find you need to slow down because the extra weight makes you tired, and you may get backache.
You should still be feeling your baby move, right up until they're born. If you notice any change in your baby's movements, call your midwife straightaway so your baby can be checked. Do not use a home handheld device (Doppler) to check your baby – these are not reliable, and even if you hear a heartbeat this does not guarantee your baby is well.
