32 Weeks pregnant

Week 32 starts on day 224 and goes up to day 231. It is your thirty-third pregnancy week.


Length of your baby: 40 centimeter / 15.8 inches
Weight of your baby: 1800 grams / 3 lbs 15 ozs

Your pregnancy at 32 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum 

If you haven't yet experienced Braxton Hicks, you should start feeling them around now and they will become stronger and more frequent. Your tummy may often feel hard and the skin stretched very tight.

You may also find you have trouble breathing or are sometimes short of breath. This can be caused by pressure on your diaphragm, caused by your growing uterus.

Your weight is likely increasing at the rate of around a pound a week. This increase is partly due to an increase in the volume of blood your body is producing. Over the last 32 weeks it will have gone up by 40 to 50%.

 

What's happening with baby

As baby continues to grow, his developing brain will make preparations for birth. This includes the section of the brain called the hypothalamus. This acts as a control center and amongst many other things it is also  the body's thermostat. It knows what temperature your baby's body should be and sends messages to keep it regulated.

This means that the fine, downy covering of hair called lanugo, which has been insulating and keeping baby warm is no longer required and around this time it will begin to fall off.

    32 weeks today. Still sick all day every day. You`d think having hyperemesis weeks 6-14 would have been enough. NOw I`m graced with morning sickness until forever. Back aches. Fatigued. Dizzy spells. But all worth it in the end I`m ready to have baby in my arms now. The last 8 weeks are always the hardest

    Half way through week 32!! Getting anxious for this guy to be in my arms. Been having contractions off and on for over a month or more. This is my fourth, so I`m not too worried about that. Then there is the excessive swelling in my feet, ankles (and today) my legs! I NEVER had it this bad with my other pregnancies! Just keeping my feet up, literally as much as I can stand to! While I enjoy my pregnancy(s), I`m ready for this one to be here NOW!! Good Luck to all of you that are expecting as well!

    32 weeks pregnant and 8 more to go, even though I`m not sleeping on any type of normal schedule. I still have plenty of energy it has to be the pure joy of knowing that I am, so close to our delivery date. This is my first boy and I`ve waited a long time for this blessing...
