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.

Wow.. June, Angel n kents.. Atleast looking at your posts I feel motivated to start. And it feels like how less time is left and there's so much to do.. I should start tomorrow for sure 😀. I m 32 weeks today!

I cannot take all the credit. My husband has been relentless with getting the room done, while also working on building the in-laws quarters in the basement for my mom (We have been in the process of buying her home for about 3 months now). The baby furniture arrives tonight and we go to settlement on the 27th. Yay for things coming together before Damien gets here!!!

yeah... at least the hubs has taken over the shopping part so i am only to focus on arranging and organizing baby's room. as for my daughter she is starting to get impatient, all she wants me to do is to go to hospital and have this baby out so that they can play together, hahaaa.

I know June, it feels like time is going too fast!

kentsmommy - 25 days ago
Well, you are ahead of me Angel! We are doing the antique airplane theme too:) He'll be sharing a room with his big brother who already started the antique airplane theme but we are planning to paint and replace their floor before the baby comes. We'll see how far we get:) I guess I should at least get to the wash!

angelfree77 - 25 days ago
All of the baby's clothes are washed and hung up, but I have not packed yet. I should do that soon, especially since we think he will come early. The baby's room is still in the works. We just had the carpet replaced yesterday and I just ordered the furniture. What was once suppose to be a neutral frog themed room for our Leap day baby, now has a bright blue sky with clouds, a sunburst, and antique toy airplanes hanging from the ceiling (my husband's ideas and toys). The bedding and curtains will still be frogs. Oh well, it's a nice blend of what he wants and what I want. LOL Tonight, we go for the hospital tour!

OMG... Just 8weeks to go- maximum... Otherwise maybe 6weeks to go. Reality hasn't really kicked in yet that we shall be adding a new member to the Family... I hope his room will be ready by end of January...

kentsmommy - 26 days ago
Have you ladies packed yet? I still need to wash little clothes and blankets.

kentsmommy - 26 days ago
I'm starting to get excited; not necessarily for the labor part, but to be able to kiss those little fingers and toes. Although when I take a look at my house and my calendar over the next few months... I'm not real sure where I'm going to fit in a new baby. Lol! I'm sure it will all work out though - it always does.

I really don't want to do the labor/delivery again. Obviously, I have no choice! I'm surprisingly calm about it.

angelfree77 - 32 days ago
My question for this week is...is anyone getting nervous? I haven't thought too much about it, but my husband asked me this today.

angelfree77 - 32 days ago
