Changes in Your Body at Week 32

Your baby is growing as you finish 31 weeks of pregnancy and inch your way closer to the due date. Your blood volume has also increased up to 50%. So it is natural for you too see a considerable weight gain.

Some of the pregnancy symptoms continue into this stage as well.

  • Breast leakage
  • Fatigue
  • Nose bleeds
  • Varicose veins
  • Back pains
  • Leg cramps

Your Baby’s Development at Week 32

The baby has moved toward the pelvis and is preparing for birth. And most turn to the head down position.

As you step into the 33rd week of your pregnancy soon, you may notice that the baby is calmer now and the kicks are lesser. This is because it has grown and there is less space inside the womb for him or her to move about.

Your baby has developed its own sleeping pattern and would be sleeping for stretches for 20 to 40 minutes.

The umbilical cord is protected by a gelatinous substance. This is to protect the baby from getting knotted when it is tossing around.

The baby’s bones are still very soft but its skeleton has fully formed now.

Week 32 Tips and Advice

The baby’s brains are still developing at this stage. So it is important for you to eat the right kind of food.

You will experience Braxton Hicks contractions at this stage. But if you cannot tell the difference between this and labour cramps then do speak to your doctor.

Take warm baths and eat small meals throughout the day to avoid contractions from beginning at this stage.

If you get into labour then there are many ways to take your mind off it – because many times this can last for even a few days. Go for walks, talk to friends and keep yourself relaxed.  And do keep your body well hydrated.

Week 32 Fun

As your due date nears and you are making plans for the arrival of the new one, start thinking of ways of how you will announce the birth. Speak to your partner and jot down all the ideas that come to mind. Some say is with balloons and some with cupcakes. You can even create a Facebook page for it.

Week 32 Have a Laugh

An almost full term pregnant woman went to a party. But soon she began to feel very irritable after having heard the same question many times.  “You look so big,” everyone was telling her.

So when she was asked again, this time by an aunt who she could not tolerate, she couldn’t control her anger anymore. So she shouted and said, “You didn’t know? I swallowed a watermelon yesterday!”

This is how Appraisal Works

Big Boss: This year your performance was good, excellent and outstanding. So, your rating is "average".

Kumar: What? How come 'average'?

Big Boss: Because...err...uhh...you lack domain knowledge.

Kumar: But last year you said I am a domain expert and you put me in this project as a domain consultant.

Big Boss: Oh is it? Well, in that case, I think your domain knowledge has eroded this year.

Kumar: What???

Big Boss: Yes, I didn't see you sharing knowledge on Purchasing continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Wednesday, October 01st, 2014

No matter how busy you are with work, make sure to pay attention to neighbourhood activities. You may contribute significantly to the welfare of the community. Imaginative or musical friends can bring opportunities for great fun this evening. It’s an ideal time to go out.

Today may require some understanding and forgiveness on your part. You may be a little tense and upset about some issues with your spouse. It’s best to sort them out today and ease the wrinkle now before it drives a wedge between you two.

You may find yourself emotionally challenged today by a strong force demanding your attention. Your hyper awareness to every situation might be driving you a bit crazy. Perhaps you just need to tone things down and relax. Enjoy rather than question the fun-loving energy of the day. The more you simply let loose and explore, the better off you’ll be.

People around you are apt to be touchy, so be careful how you interact with them. You’ll find that they can see beyond any sort of facade and easily detect dissention within the ranks. Be honest about your opinion, regardless of how you think it will be received. This is your best approach to a certain situation, especially since the truth will surface no matter what.

Friends, neighbours, and relatives could be feeling especially stressed out and explosive today. This isn’t a good day to initiate intense communications with them. Keep your talk light and inconsequential. This is a great day to stay home and read, especially since your mind is particularly receptive to unusual ideas. The Internet, videos, and TV documentaries could be most informative.

If you have money idling away in your bank account, then today’s the day to invest it. You may even discover some hidden talent for investment such as real estate, or other form of money management that you never thought you had. This might be a good time to buy or sell any type of property. You might also want to do some reading on future investment opportunities.

Things seem to be going quite well for you in many respects. Your thinking is clear, your emotions are under control, and the puzzle pieces are fitting into place. This is your time to take advantage of these pockets of good fortune and turn them into something huge. You have the power to make anything happen – especially now.

This could be a very busy day and you will be wise to work from a list. You can be a wonderful influence on children and might want to make this a special time for them. Calls to people who are introverted can make a huge difference in their lives.

This can be a very pleasant day for making contacts. Teamwork can be fun and productive if everyone understands and respects different styles and skills. Spend time reviewing plans and projects. The more critical and detail-conscious you are now, the better foundation you build for the future.
