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!”

The Boss is always Right

When you take a long time, you're slow.
When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough.

When you don't do it, you're lazy.
When your boss doesn't do it, he's too busy.

When you make a mistake, you're an idiot.
When your boss makes a mistake, he's only human.

When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority.
When your boss does the same thing, that's initiative.

When you take a stand, you're being bull-headed.
When your boss does it, he's being firm.

Your Fortune For Today
Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Are you getting hit with obstacles lately? Could it be that you simply need to allot yourself more time to complete the monumental tasks you take on? This might be difficult for you to tolerate. You don’t know how to deal with times like these when you must continue doing the same thing over and over until you get results. There’s a lesson here for you. Remember that patience is a virtue.

You’re going to be happily busy today. You might come across a project which requires tremendous effort but at the same time is something you are truly passionate about. Persevere through the roadblocks with vigour and you are sure to taste success.

Does your job have a good profit-sharing plan, or do you own company stock? If so, expect to hear that its value has skyrocketed beyond what anyone had hoped. This is worthy of celebration. You and your colleagues should do just that. A romantic interest might offer congratulations. This trend is likely to continue. You might be a millionaire some day.

Dreams with mixed messages might trouble your sleep tonight. One minute you’ll be having a wonderful dream, and the next could be black and gloomy. Write them down. The message is probably more positive than it appears. Worries about money might plague you throughout the day, yet things probably aren’t as bad as they seem. Make sure you learn the facts about your situation before allowing yourself to panic!

It’s time to be adventurous! The energy today brings a powerful concentration of creative and passionate energies. Plan a romantic adventure-go bungee jumping with your spouse or paragliding with a loved one-anything that gets your adrenaline pumping. Be ready to travel or chase your dreams. On the work front, be careful of taking on too much work as you may overestimate how much you can accomplish in the time allowed.

Change your lifestyle if you want to get immediate relief from your prolonged tension and strains of life. Put on your track pants and go for a jog or a brisk walk. Make exercise a part of your daily routine and remember to keep smiling as it will go a long way in keeping you healthy.

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.

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.

Communication with those closest to you might prove difficult today. You might end up playing endless phone tag. This can be a bit distressing, because you’re feeling especially warm and loving toward them right now. You might even worry that perhaps they’re angry and don’t want to talk to you. This isn’t the case. Keep trying. You’ll eventually reach them and receive the response you want.
