Getting stronger bones
At 34 weeks, your baby’s bones are continuing to harden. Their skull will remain softer, though, to make birth easier. In fact, your baby will be born with two soft spots in the skull to help the birthing process. The smaller spot will close by the time your little one is two to three months old, and the larger spot will close around the time they’re 18 months.
