Born & Birth stories

By week 32, your baby weighs nearly 4 pounds! The crown-to-rump length of your baby is approximately 11.7 inches and the total length is about 18.9 inches. Your uterus is now 5 inches above your bellybutton. Some doctors do not see their patients every other week until now. So, if you were going to the doctor monthly, you may begin going once every other week now.

Sleeping boy. the baby sleeps 90-95% of the day, and sometimes experiences REM sleep, an indication of dreaming.

Now that your baby has grown so long and your uterus is higher, you might notice a new discomfort. Your baby is probably head-down and may occasionally stretch out and kick you in the ribs. The pressure on your rib cage can make you sore, especially if one of your baby's feet becomes caught. You can prevent this by sitting up straight as much as possible. Because your baby's demands for vitamins and minerals are higher than ever right now, you should continue to take your parental vitamins for the entire pregnancy.

This week your baby's movements will peak. You should continue to monitor the fetal movements daily and address any concerns with your caregiver. The wrinkles in your baby's face are disappearing and fat is still being deposited throughout the baby's body.

The body growth slows down from now on.

Because of the lack of space in the uterus, the legs are drawn up in what is known as the fetal position.

As a preparation for breastfeeding, your baby has learned to root for the breast. The baby will turn its head if touched on the cheek and open its mouth if the bottom lip is tickled. By this time the baby can also suck and swallow in a coordinated way.

tlc - 21 days ago
jackie - thx for looking into it. i did too. was reassuring to find that most of the time it's not anything bad.

tlc - 21 days ago
My fetal echo is scheduled for next Thursday. I'm in the mindset that it's a false alarm, but will probably be freaking out that day.

Baby ali - 21 days ago
my house didn't go through feeling gutted and sad :0(

jackie87 - 21 days ago
Tlc, I did some research and read it's not uncommon for little irregularities to be picked up because of the heart still developing, even in infants. Glad to hear you'll still get the fetal echo just to be safe. I'm sure your little guy is okay though and for sure keep us updated!

Baby ali - 21 days ago
tlc- hope baby is okay, dnt worry it might be just the hiccups.

tlc - 22 days ago
Hubby and I just used our fetal monitor and heard a regular heartbeat for several minutes. Only one time might there have been a skipped beat. In the doc's office it was constant, so hopefully it truly was just the hiccups. Will still pursue a fetal echo just to be sure.

tlc - 22 days ago
Ok- time for me to have a real scary issue. Regular OB appointment today was picking up an irregular heartbeat. Baby also had hiccups at the start of the monitoring, so we are hoping it was just that. I did a fetal stress test but it was still unclear. After the hiccups seemed to stop, there was still an occasional blip. I have to call in the morning to find a pediatric cardiologist. Hoping one of you ladies experienced this and everything turned out fine. Reassurance please! I had very detailed ultrasounds at 16 and 20 weeks which showed no cardiac abnormalities, and of course a million heartbeat monitorings that have not picked up on anything thus far.

tnt-surprisebaby2 - 22 days ago
I'm with you ladies as well, I'm done with being pregnant. And while I know he still has a ways to go, there's not much more room! If I eat too much, stomach acid gets pushed into my throat and I cannot breath! Lol! Eating a little bit, all day, helps. I've grabbed all of my firstborn's salvageable baby clothes and plan to wash them and sort them by size soon, just have to buy some Dreft (baby laundry detergent) to wash them with. I must admit, I love the smell, and can't wait for the GOOD baby smells when he's born lol. And yay, we can all finally say we're having babies next month! I'm a planner and was hoping to get my baby induced at least on or right before his dye date. My body did very well with induction last time, knock on wood, but I'm wondering if he just won't decide to make his own appearance!

Baby ali - 22 days ago
went to the diabetes clinic today got a scan next Tuesday to see how big baby is, then got appointment with the doctor 30th July were they will lets no a date to be induced yepppyyyyyyyyyy will be having baby a week or 2 b4 due date :0)

funtimemum80 - 22 days ago
I've been buying things here and there and putting it all away, hopefully next week when my two youngests bedroom is complete ( and my 17 month old is in his new bed from the cot) I can start bringing it all out and washing it ect have forgotten what I have it will almost feel like Christmas lol

stublit - 23 days ago
I've been buying lots of used baby items since all my baby stuff is back home- 2000 miles away!! Just bought a cosleeper bassinet, glider w/ottoman, and nice baby swing for under 100. I just need gender neutral onesies and diapers!

kadyrae1107 - 23 days ago
I'm definitely not ready either! I still have so much to do!!! But I am exhausted and getting tired of being tired and lazy all the time. Lol. Still haven't decided when my last day of work is going to be. I was thinking I'll just try to stick it out as long as I can....but I don't know!!! :(

jackie87 - 23 days ago
I'm by no means ready either. Just feeling so blech

tlc - 23 days ago
I feel ok. I'm so not ready for baby - not wishing for time to pass yet.

funtimemum80 - 23 days ago
Whilst everyone is knackered and sore today I'm feeling great lol I can finally say I'm due next month, even if I go way over and need induction ima having a baby next month!! It's given me a total uplift, I've celebrated with a much needed spa day : ))

jackie87 - 23 days ago
My kid is pushing on my ribs and hips simultaneously. I can barely breathe today. It's Canada Day (holiday), but I'm working. Five more days in a row after this. I'm really having a hard time coping with the discomfort. It feels like the baby is trying to stretch out but doesn't have enough room. I think the position is still head down but I don't know for sure. I have my appt. tomorrow. I'm feeling done with pregnancy too, Ali. :(

Baby ali - 23 days ago
feeling fed up now, being pregnant with tons of pains and symptoms and having to look after two little kids is getting to me :0(

kristen27 - 24 days ago
Tnt I've been sore on my stomach too. Lots of Braxton hicks today! Feeling more and more tired. Like I can't even stand very long without feeling tired.

kadyrae1107 - 24 days ago
Tnt- I would love see time to myself. Just a few hours would be wonderful! Every time I try to relax in a nice warm bath, Kennadie comes strolling in and says me too mama me too!! Lol. The only timeimI'm not with Kennadie is when I'm at work..and IM WORKING!!! So its not even like peace and quiet lol. Hubby works a ton! 6 days a week! I could have her Grammy take her for a few hours in my day off but I like spending time with her! Shes not bad..or gets in my nerves. But it would be nice to just lay around and nly have to get up for anything or anymore besides if its for myself lol I'm still working 5 days a week. But these last three days..mannnn has my back been hurting!!! I had really REALLY horrible backaches last pregnancy and up until now it didn't really hurt much! :(

Baby ali - 24 days ago
I have never had my water break till the baby comes out, I want to experience it while am at home or few hours b4 I can't remember my water breaking just bit comes out once baby comes out I think at the same time :0/

Baby ali - 24 days ago
2 months feels forever away lol

tnt-surprisebaby2 - 24 days ago
My belly has been SO unbelievably sore these past few days. I've been having braxton hicks like crazy, and though they don't hurt, what little muscle tone I have in the lower stomach area is horribly tender. Also I got up 5 times last night. Three times to pee, once for a drink of water because my mouth felt like a desert, and another time just for the heck of it lol. Two more months, two more months.... Okay, that's it for my weekly gripe-fest haha.

tnt-surprisebaby2 - 24 days ago
Lil- we're just using our old car seat since we're having another boy, it's still nice and it's only four years old, but I haven't taken it out of the closet yet lol. Kristen- I was so glad when my son's 4th birthday party was over last week, planning and setting up any kind of party to host and make others happy is hard work, especially this far along in our pregnancy! A diaper party actually sounds like a great idea, but to be honest, I don't have the energy to do it bleh. Kady- that sucks! It sounds like you're working too hard, or over doing it. Spend more time for yourself maybe? Hot relaxing baths, stretches, backrubs? Lol

kadyrae1107 - 24 days ago
My back has been hurting really bad the last two days. Up til then I really didn't have much of a backache unless I just got done working or something. Both mornings I'll wake up and it hurts so bad to move. Its like real stiff. I took a couple Tylenol so hoping that will help cause I would like to get some stuff done today around the house since it's my day off.

kristen27 - 25 days ago
Had a pamper party today! I was very overwhelmed!!!!! I thought I could handle doing all the food, cleaning, taking care of kids, entertaining family who came in! Absolutely not! My sister who came in town didn't help very much at all and it was kind of annoying! But on the plus side we had lots of family and close friends come and bring us diapers and hang out so it was a good time!! Glad it's over with! 8 more weeks!!

lil.pigz - 25 days ago
FINALLY bought a carseat,lol. Talk about ultimate procrastination:) I still havent put the bassinet together or anything else, but the carseat is the box, in the corner, but hey, Im making progress:)I still DON'T think I will make it to my c/s at 39 weeks. Feels like baby dropeed and my others were all delivered or water broke at 38 weeks, so we shall see.

Baby ali - 25 days ago
we was supposed to move into a bigger house July but sadly dnt no what is happening with the mortgage still taking ages to go through plz ladies make prayer it goes through so one less stress for me and can get things done, hoping everyone is well and healthy

jackie87 - 26 days ago
Kady, I think having a list is a good idea so you can slowly work your way through and complete everything you want to before your little guy arrives. Knowing you have a load to do but not knowing where to start can be overwhelming for sure. I still need a new car seat (my daughter ripped all the styrofoam off her old one--I was not impressed), and we need to paint our girls' new room in the basement and move them down there. I also want to go on a little trip to the mountains and badlands and get cleaning, sorting, etc. done. I work Monday-Sunday and then I'm done so that's at least a relief

kadyrae1107 - 26 days ago
I still have sooooo much to do and get ready before he comes! I really would like to scrub the carpets too! Before I had my daughter we scrubbed all the walls and baseboards in bedrooms living room etc. I still need to wash all his clothes and put them away. I still gotta pull out the swing and stuff from my daughter. Thank goodness they're neutral colors so I can reuse them. They're only two years old!! I'm starting to stress because nothing is done. Hubby works 6 days a week, at least 8-9 hours a day. I work in theeevenings so there's only very little time we're both home at the same time and by the time I get home from work all I wanna do is shower and lay down and on Sundays (his only day off) he doesn'treally want to do much. He works outside so the heat really gets to him. So iI know he's exhausted and I hate to ask him to do this and that. But I told him yesterday next week I want to start doing stuff and checking things off the list!!! He agreed so that's good!!

funtimemum80 - 26 days ago
TNT, I hear you on the cleaning and order of the house, we are in process of decorating two rooms at once as we are running out of time!! We need to set up the crib for the baby and wash all clothes ect, I'm looking forward to packing my labour bag because that will be the very last thing I do in this pregnancy before relaxing and waiting

tnt-surprisebaby2 - 27 days ago
32 weeks, it feels like I'm inching my way through this pregnancy! I think I'm more excited for the last 2 weeks before my due date so that I can get my hospital bags, diaper bag, and freezer food ready. I need to deep clean my house, vacuum and shampoo my carpet, dust everything, wash and fold all baby clothes...I'm getting really excited for the END already. Once the baby is here,I probably won't have time to get on here and browse all the cutsie baby stuff. I just want everything to be as easy as can be after giving birth!

funtimemum80 - 32 days ago
Yay a new number, just lots and lots of weeks to go........summer has hit the uk and the heat has left me feeling less than enthusiastic about being this size and weight, I like cool rooms and ice lollies and being left alone

lila2cute:-) - 35 days ago
Last day in week 32 :)

casanova - 37 days ago
well I like that vickiesecret, you at least get to have some type of idea if you start having contractions. they check my cervix every week since my cervix thins out early. so tomorrow they will be doing the cervix routine

vickiessecret - 38 days ago
All they do during my Nst, is put 2 monitors on my belly, one to monitor babies heart rate and another that picks up contractions. I get to sit in a comfy recliner for about 20-40 mins twice a week, The baby needs to move so many time and the heart rate needs to go up so much during each movement, to not fail. My little one, didn't cooperate, so I had to go for a u/s to check on fluids, which were good. I go on Wednesdays & Saturdays, I'll be having them till I deliver :)

Sue23 - 38 days ago
im kinda nervus cos ive always known when i was going into labour if i go by my self i wouldnt know if its braxton hicks or real thing my contractions was never regular and timing was always different and if it goes the same way as last time id deffo have no time to get to hospital

Sue23 - 38 days ago
a non stress test is just being on monitor to check baby heart rate n sometimes blood tests and sometimes check cervix normal routine checks

casanova - 38 days ago
just a few more weeks, that's what I tell myself when I feel her heel in my ribs and her booty protruding on my side!!

casanova - 38 days ago
I am so excited!! it looks like soon I will have my baby girl in my arms!!!

JDH - 38 days ago
I don't remember having a NST with my last two. What do they do? I'm really hoping and feeling this baby will come on her own, but am also nervous about that happening as we are a good 45 min from the hospital. I think you're fine if you pay attention to your body and just don't try to push it too close. We are getting close ladies!!!

casanova - 38 days ago
no I have not had that test done. I don't remember having it done last pregnancy.

susieq2582 - 38 days ago
I am 35 minutes from the hospital, but I told my MIL that she may have to just meet us there as I may not be comfortable stopping to drop my kids off at her house.

susieq2582 - 38 days ago
NST = Non Stress Test

casanova - 38 days ago
