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.

Snooks, I am having TONS of Braxton Hicks also!! At night it's the worst. It makes me think I will go into labor at night. I'm not sure since my first pregnancy my water ruptured and I had to be induced since labor wasn't coming on fast enough.

snooks - 9.6 hours ago
Anemic. Ugh. Feels like heart attack walking upstairs and soooo sleepy and groggy. Iron starting to take effect after only 5 days. Still managing gestational diabetes with food, not insulin. No wheat equals no high glucose. Loads of braxton hicks. Trying to drink enough water. Home stretch, ladies!

glowingwith2 - 1 days ago
afshanm, I'm having lots of BH these days! They get really strong in the evening after I've had dinner. Especially if I am full! Which makes it even worse! Ughhhh...

Week 32 finally getting some pains and scard

monica28 - 10 days ago
I had my doctor apt yesterday and they did a very short ultra sound. and my big boy weighs 5ilbs and 5 oz already....she said my due date based on his size is now 10/1/2014 but I will still go by 10/07/2014....seeing him yesterday made me even more anxious to meet him. how are you ladies

monica28 - 11 days ago
msjenn what part of florida do you live in....I live in Miami. I have an apt tomorrow canr wait to get another ultra sound very curious to know how big my baby is. everyone is making jokes about me having twins because im so big. my babyshower is Saturday im kinda excited. I guess but ive been very emotional lately. I don't know about you ladies but im ready to have my baby. he is totally wearing me down physically.

mammaramirez - 12 days ago
33 weeks tomorrow!!

msjenn727 - 14 days ago
The weather was so bad here in Florida yesterday, i missed my ultrasound appt because i hate driving in the rain and an hr away from home too.

msjenn727 - 14 days ago
Mamma- 'I didn't know i was pregnant', still comes on the discovery health channel, i just don't remember the times. Also i was told that ' One Born Every Min' comes on the LMN network (Lifetime Movie Network) on weekends, not the lifetime channel. My television is usually stuck on Disney jr lol!

mammaramirez - 14 days ago
Had a growth check u/s today and a check-up today. All is well with me and baby health wise.... he's measuring 2 weeks ahead (which is consistent with the anatomy scan we had at 18 weeks). Estimating him to be 8-10 lbs at birth, which I KNOW I can handle :). Placenta is still in good position, he's still head down (all good stuff) My doctor is now on board with me waiting until I go into labor naturally. So there will be no more talk of early induction or induction at all unless there is a cause for concern that an induction is necessary. I go back in 2 weeks, then I have one more 2 week apt and then after 36 weeks gestation, I'll be seen every week.

mammaramirez - 15 days ago
I don't think I've ever seen the show. I was addicted to 'I didn't know I was pregnant', but I haven't seen it on lately... then again, my television is usually stuck on cartoons... and national geographic, animal planet, and discovery channel because of a certain 3 year old

msjenn727 - 16 days ago
monica- here in the US, it use to come on television, but i can't seem to find it anymore except on youtube. I always watched the US version, then when i went on youtube, they always show the UK's version. Every night for the past few nights, i get very bad heartburn. I'm up every hr going to pee! It's exhausting!

monica28 - 16 days ago
msjenn727 is this a show that comes on youtube or Netflix..... that seems pretty cool how you would be able to choose. my two experience when having my babies was stuck in bed no walking blood pressure monitng and that silly oxygen mask. I also have trouble at night sleeping I can get in bed at 10 and not fall asleep until like 3-4 am I just kinda toss n turn all night. which is really frustrating since I am still working and I plan on working till I have my baby

msjenn727 - 16 days ago
glowingwith2- you should check it out when you get a chance. Since you will be delivering in the US this time, you may be able to relate to the differences in the show!

glowingwith2 - 16 days ago
MsJenn, You are so right. My first baby was born in Australia, now my boy is due to be born in the US. They handle the birthing experience so differently! Each delivery room has a birthing tub in the bathroom so mom can choose how to labor. They also encourage you to walk around, and not use medicine unless the pain becomes too unbearable. They also allow you to elect for a c-section if you want. So crazy! I'm excited to see how my experience in the US goes. :) I will have to check out the show. I don't think I've seen it before.

msjenn727 - 17 days ago
Ugh i just really feel as though this baby will never be here! I am very tired and it's very hard to nap with the other kids at home. Then at night i'm up every hour it seems and i feel so restless.I'm always on youtube looking at videos of babies and it makes me so jealous. I love the show one born every minute. Has anyone watched that show and noticed how different the US and the UK does things differently?

mammaramirez - 18 days ago
I was going to do a diaper shower but I'm just not in the mood. I still have sooo much to do and I'm running out of time to do it, I'm also running out of the capability of being able to do some of the things myself....... such as rearranging furniture

msjenn727 - 18 days ago
Leanbean- yes my schedule is busy from now until he gets here! Time appears to be moving slowly for me, but im reality it's actually moving pretty fast. I think after my babyshower on the 23rd, things may progress faster!

leanbean - 18 days ago
Went into crazy nesting mode yesterday and got up at 6 and worked all day until 11:30 last night! So happy to get a lot done, but I have so much more that's driving me crazy! hahahaha MAMMAR~ Cute! Love the name! MSJENN~ Sounds like lots to keep you busy and how cute you got to see him eating his hands! MONICA~ Yay for a baby shower!

monica28 - 18 days ago
32 weeks tomorrow!!! my babyshower on the 23rd I cant wait for this month. im so anxious my little guy will be here soon

msjenn727 - 18 days ago
Mamma- I am also stuck on biblical names as well. My husband's name is James. Our son's name will be Jeremiah Isaiah. I think Eli James is a great name!

msjenn727 - 18 days ago
Had a growth ultrasound done Friday. Baby was doing great and is in the head down position ( even though i will be getting a c section). The tech estimated that baby weighed about 4 lbs 5 oz. I could see him trying to eat his hands (too cute). His heartbeat was 160. I go for another ultrasound this Friday as i had one every week now. I have my 3 hr glucose test this Thursday and next monday, i will be touring the hospital, since i'm not familiar with this one. My babyshower is next weekend on the 23rd and i am very excited!

mammaramirez - 19 days ago
We finally have agreed on a name for this baby boy! Eli James. We like biblical names, Eli is the only name we could agree upon and James is after my late grandfather.

leanbean - 26 days ago
Wow! Been super emotional and irritable. Feeling pretty bad for my family at the moment and hoping that I can get my butt back in nice mode. MOMII~ Good luck! Sounds like everything is very busy for you and being anemic, you're even more exhausted. Hope all goes perfectly and smoothly and that the infusions give you just the boost you need.

MOMIIB - 29 days ago
32 weeks today! Ob appointment tomorrow. I also have to start iron infusions bc I am severely anemic :-( we close on our house next friday and hopefully close on our new house the following week! Baby shower planned for 8/30th.....ekkk, so much to do and sooooo little time!!!!!

brandyb1984 - 47 days ago

Baby ali - 55 days ago
32 weeks today horrraaaayyyy :0)

sarah6485 - 56 days ago
Considering this is my 7 th pregnancy I feel great,compared to my last not a pain twinge nothing I go bout my day as usually do when I was non pregnant. it's great I'm lucky to of got a great last pregnancy and still stay so active with my 5 children I have,I honestly can't complain about any of it it's been easy 👍

tlc - 57 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 - 57 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 - 57 days ago
my house didn't go through feeling gutted and sad :0(

jackie87 - 58 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 - 58 days ago
tlc- hope baby is okay, dnt worry it might be just the hiccups.

tlc - 58 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 - 58 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 - 58 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 - 59 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 - 59 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 - 59 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 - 59 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 - 59 days ago
I'm by no means ready either. Just feeling so blech

tlc - 59 days ago
I feel ok. I'm so not ready for baby - not wishing for time to pass yet.

funtimemum80 - 59 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 - 59 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 - 59 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 - 60 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 - 60 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 - 61 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 - 61 days ago
2 months feels forever away lol

tnt-surprisebaby2 - 61 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.
