What would you like to do?
No this is not a sign of the baby arriving before the EDD, baby's normally engage around 34 weeks ready for the EDD but you must always consult your midwife if you have any concers.

Thanks for the feedback!
Answer That means the baby's head is in the birth canal and probably getting ready to drop. There is nothing to worry about. If anything I is a good thing …because when you go into labor it won't be so hard and long to push the baby out. Good luck with your new baby and congrats.
Answer From A Midwife If your cervix is really 4cm dilated (not sure what the 80 is) at 34 weeks you should be at the hospital as your baby could be b…orn anytime and at 34 weeks your baby will be pre-term and need extra support.
According to resent statistics, A baby of either sex at 34 weeks gestation has about an 85 - 90 % chance of survival.
Yes it is possible. at 34 weeks the baby still has yet to develop their lungs and eyes.. Some babies may develop much faster than others therefore some others may develop comp…letely and healthy at only 34 weeks... yet some others may develop even slow and need a little more time to grow. it's best to talk to your doctor and see what he or she has to say on your baby's development. every baby is different
There are few risks since a baby born at 34 weeks is close to full term. Some risks are a weak respiratory system and low birth weight.
Tampons wouldn't affect a baby during pregnancy, but there isabsolutely no reason why a woman should be using tampons while sheis pregnant - tampons should only be used during… menstruation, evenif experiencing bleeding during pregnancy it is not safe to usetampons as you don't know the blood loss to know what absorbency touse. Misusing tampons this way can increase risk of vaginalinfections and toxic shock syndrome - the latter would potentiallycause serious harm to the baby.
I am 34 weeks pregnant and the baby is very low down is the baby fully engaged and how long do you think i have left?
Six weeks, give or take a week or two.
Yes. Here is a picture of what your baby looks like at 34 weeks.http://3dpregnancy.parentsconnect.com/calendar/34-weeks-pregnant.html
First as the mother you must be taking your prenatal vitamins and eating properly. Which means when your thirsty you should drink, hungry you should eat or snack. Eating is wh…at keeps your baby growing and eating is very important. Keeping iron up and drinking lots of fluids. If you have been doing all of these things then it is meant for you to have a smaller then average baby, if not at this point you are going to have him/her soon so just take the best care of your child once they are here. You can only do so much as a person so just take care of yourself eat right and do what you can.
Approximately 5 pounds.
if the lungs are developed then it will be ok but it may need some help breathing if they are not
Viability is usually said to be between 26 and 28 weeks.
Absolutely. My daughter was born at 33.5 and had no complications. She stayed in the NICU for 16 days to learn to nurse and use a bottle (baby's aren't coordinated enough to d…o this until 35 weeks). She was 4 pounds 15 ounces---almost 5lb, the size of many twins! My water broke so I had 2.5 days on bedrest in the hospital waiting. They gave me a shot of steroids which could have helped her develop her lungs. They say girls develop faster in the womb, but my friend had a boy born at 33.5 weeks exactly the same situation, no problems, home in over two weeks. Now it is awful to leave the hospital each day without your baby, emotionally very very tough, but the baby should be fine. Do not worry.
4.73 pounds and 17.72 inches
There are none and at this point, past 24 weeks and without no legal medical reason, it would be murder.
