32 Weeks Pregnant

As you enter into the eighth month of your pregnancy you will probably be wanting to get the baby out of your body. Smile and try and stay calm. It is almost there. Read our Short Guide to Managing Pregnancy. it is sure to help you with tips and advice to manage these last few weeks.  

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!”

Your Fortune For Today
Sunday, September 21st, 2014

This can be a day of powerful challenges. Pride or stubbornness can make things worse. If you’re feeling frustrated, do your best to keep your commitments and don’t take on anything new. Be as compassionate and helpful as possible toward people you meet. Don’t forget we’re all in this together.

This isn’t the time to give in to stress over the unknown. It’s natural to be afraid, but this doesn’t have to stop you. You can be an island of good sense and helpful actions in troubled times. Visualize the world you want for the next generation.

It’s time to expand your horizons, especially if you’re feeling unappreciated. Volunteering for community service events or travelling to see new places can change your perspective in positive ways. Be confident enough to take a leap in order to chase your neglected dreams. But do this only after you have done some research regarding the field -you don’t want to jump in blind.

Find a wide-open field to frolic in today! Pick (or buy) some wildflowers and put them in a vase on your kitchen table. Small things can bring a great deal of sunshine and hope to a stagnant situation. Try your best to clear your mind of unnecessary clutter and open it to new possibilities. Getting out and taking a walk in nature will help you gain a fresh, new perspective.

This is a good day for you to get out of the dirt and into the air in order to gain a fresh, new perspective on a situation. Don’t dwell on things beneath or behind you. Keep looking up. Pick up the phone and call a close friend you haven’t spoken with in a while. There may be a great deal of catching up to do. Sometimes we forget the importance of maintaining contact with old buddies.

Your style sense and artistic eye can be used to improve your look or help someone feel better about himself. Resist the temptation to be overly generous. A conservative approach is best. The energy today will support any sort of negotiations. Make a list to stay organized. Don’t forget simple errands.

You might pick up some rather disturbing thoughts from a friend, neighbour, or relative. This person could be upset over something and not communicating his or her feelings. It isn’t appropriate to try to coax this person into sharing with you now. They aren’t upset with you, but they might be if you push! Back off and let this person come to terms with the problem. Your friend will talk the time is right.

You might come across strong opposition today from someone who seems to want to cut straight through to your heart. In reality, this is a message reminding you to think about things in terms of the collective – the oneness of us all. Be aware of a greater perspective in which you see more than just your side of the issue. Talk to people you trust before making any major decisions.

You might be a bit confused with the mood of the day which fosters quick action and a sporadic approach to things. More than likely, this approach isn’t exactly in line with your usual methodical protocol. Do what you can to merge with this energy in order to add a more spontaneous spark to your daily routine.
