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.

Beana I said a prayer for you and your baby to have good health! If they put the baby in the nicu borrow a medela pump and get breast milk to the baby. It helps them so much! Best wishes!

KristinaA - 18 days ago
Beana - will pray. Stay strong. Just a few more days to go for you now!

beanaleena - 18 days ago
hello other preggers!!! Hopefully everyone is feeling well!! We just received more bad news. Asking for prayers from everyone. We have placenta previa with a possible accrita. That was what we did know. We just found vasa previa. so they are scheduling a c section when we are 34 weeks. I am so full of anxiety its unreal. So if you all are praying can you please include our family? thank you to all the mommies!!! I hope all of you are getting through these last few weeks with little to no heartburn, and getting some sleep! sending all love!!!!

We toured the hospital today and I just cannot wait until it is my turn. :-) We toured it as group with other women due in May and this one dumb chick was being so obnoxious. When they said that baby will be placed on your chest to clean up, she was all, 'oh no they don't. They better take that nasty somewhere else. I don't do dirty.' Then, when they said that you do the first nursing moments after birth, she says, 'Those are mine! Ain't nobody sucking on my girls!'. It was ridiculous.

KristinaA - 19 days ago
mamaford -- I know. When you're expecting for the first time, it's like you need 9 months to prepare, but when it's your 4th, 5th, 6th baby, it's like hurry up and get here already so we can get started as a family with you!

mamaford77 - 19 days ago
Set up the nursery this weekend! I have to say, having the carseat just sitting there empty is making me feel like it's taunting me!

sher-baby - 39 days ago
Oh boy babylump!! I have nooooo clue. Plus, I'm in a completely different country! I know here, my daughters father is no where on any legal documentation! We were never married so my last name had never changed and my daughter had my last name. With this baby, he will have dh's last name. I have no suggestions!! Sorry, good luck!

babylove5 - 39 days ago
Baby lump I got the birth certificate info packet in the mail a while ago and it states that in the state of TN if you are married regardless if you're soon to be divorced, or if you know your hubby is not the father he is legally the father and you must put his name on the birth certificate. After you can have a genetic test to prove the father. Really your ex is the only one that should be concerned. You can always refuse to give your ex hubby's name and they will put on the birth certificate that you refused. Idk in the case of child support I would talk to a lawyer.

babylumpp2015 - 39 days ago
oh my babylove!My girls are going a little nuts since they see snow & want to play outside but it is SO COLD right now I think they'll freeze so I'm entertaining them with baking cookies and painting today. Does anybody know anything about birth certificate names? I am going through a divorce for almost 2 years now & it will be final in June. Baby will obviously be here before then but I have to keep my married name until paper are signed & official. & I can't believe I'm saying this but at the moment I am not comfortable with giving this baby her dads last name due to many reasons, maybe in the future if things go well. I know it seems selfish but I can't believe I would have 3 babies & not share a last name with any of them. My exhusband is a fantastically great father & deserves every bit of having his kids named after him. As far as the bf goes he's just not all there yet. For the birth certificate would they allow me to use my maiden name for baby's last name although mine won't be legally changed for another 2 months?

babylove5 - 39 days ago
We are in a state of emergency here too. Cars are piling up on the interstate, it is wreck after wreck. My hubby couldn't even pull up the driveway since we are on a small hill. He was stuck near the road. He left work at lunch. The boys are driving me nuts fighting.

babylumpp2015 - 39 days ago
I'm in the southern parts of Virginia. I suppose it's just south enough in the US where some flurries cause for total chaos! The second snow is put on the weather channel people start driving 20 miles under the speed limit. lol I'm originally from the northern states so I am very use to snow & it is comedic and frustrating to watch the reaction of these people! We were in state of emergency and not allowed to leave our houses after 3 pm due to 6 inches of POWDERY snow!!

sher-baby - 40 days ago
I mentioned to my DH the other day that we have about 54 more days to go and he was like'...wow! 8-/..' That's it!!! LOL it was pretty funny!! Babylump, where abouts are you??? I know for the Central and eastern part of Canada, we are getting hit with snow and this fridgid cold!!! It's unreal how cold it's been... Our cars don't even want to start..I don't blame them!!..I don't even wanna start!!! Lol

babylumpp2015 - 40 days ago
It is so frustrating, I am a very nice person and try to avoid confrontation as much as possible, but you don't mess with my baby, you will see my wrath. My family said the same thing babylove, they told me to head to the ER & I'll be sure to be seen. But the weather is now too much and I don't want to take my other kids out in it, I wish I wouldve thought of that sooner! & 35 weeks in 2 weeks seem so unreal, I was talking to the bf about it saying how in 4 short weeks this little one could be here and that surely freaked him out, I watched him go white & for the first time I think it hit him how close it is & that he really will be a dad soon. Is everyone keeping warm with this weather?

babylove5 - 40 days ago
Bayblump you will be 35 weeks in 2 weeks! That's to long to wait. They need to get you in there sooner than that or you need to find another US place! That is ridiculous! They have openings for emergencies and I would make sure I had a cramp or a spot of blood or something to get in asap. I would be making people hop to it! Wait until the roads are clear though.

sher-baby - 40 days ago
Aww babylump!!! That's sooo crappy and frustrating!! I can be a bit of a hot head...or a big mouth, so stuff like that' doesn't work well with me! Someone usualy feels my wrath and DH is usualy left having to defuse the situation!! I hope ur dr can work something out for you!! It's pretty important

babylumpp2015 - 40 days ago
Babylove-hope you're feeling better!!! This snow storm can kiss my butt! Was suppose to see the high risk specialist today and get a better look at the tumor and learn more about it but they cancelled on me. I was on the phone all morning trying to get in before they closed and not only could they not do that they tried rescheduling for 2 weeks away and when I tried to book it it was taken & keeps getting pushed back. My bf drove 6 hours to be here for it for the support and I am so upset! I am going to talk to my doctor at my appointment on Thursday in hopes I can get in somewhere else or another office because I don't want the stress and worry on my mind any longer the past 6 days have been hell, at this rate she'll be born before I even get an appointment! It didn't help everyone I talked to was so rude and inconsiderate and didn't even care and actually got sassy with me that I was upset, all they cared was snow day!

sher-baby - 40 days ago
Yup!! This winter is beyond freezing!!! I can't wait for summer! Hopefully a nice, loooonnngg, and hot summer! I hate the cold!

babylove5 - 40 days ago
Supermom are you still hanging in there? You haven't posted, so I hope you are still carrying the baby. Baby lump let us know how your baby is doing?

floydianslip2 - 40 days ago
I was just listening to the news and they were talking about more snow and cold weather getting ready to hit back east and in the midwest. They didn’t say much about Canadian weather, but I pretty much figured that we can lump Canada in with the rest of the insane cold. This has been a really crazy winter for a lot of people! Not so much for us in Arizona, but we won’t go there! Babylove, I’m glad you are feeling better!

sher-baby - 40 days ago
Rjean- Ya, I think we'd all be a lil jealous...I'm getting a lil anxious myself but I know he is safest inside me for a lil while longer. And I also can't wait to get control of my own body again!!! Between the aches and pains, peeing when I sneeze, the bruised ribs, etc...this pregnancy has been a lil rough, if I do say so myself. It's all for a great cause, but wow...since about week 17 for me, it's been rough!!!

sher-baby - 40 days ago
I'm glad it feeling better. A lot of Jamacian drink ginger beer just for the fun of it!!! I don't know how!! That's stuff is something nasty, but if it's doing the job for you, then that's all that matters. He haven't has much snow since about a week but yesterday and today will be very cold days. It's so cold there finding homeless ppl dead on the street...which is evey sad. We have shelters and because its been Sooo cold they have opening up even more and 24hr warming centers were ppl can go and just get warm; have something hot to eat or drink, but some homeless ppl just refuse to go.

babylove5 - 40 days ago
Sher, that sounds really good!!! I hv been drinking that ginger beer and it is Mexican and burns but if you get that stomach virus it works! We are snowed in here. We normally don't get much snow but they are predicting 7 inches in Nashville, TN.

sher-baby - 41 days ago
Good to hear Babylove! I'm making some good ol' home made Jamacian 'chicken' soup!!! If you lived even driving distance id bring you some!! It's colder than the north pole here today!!! The North Pole is -20's...were -35s maybe even -40s!!!! Damn!!!! It's definitely a soup kind of day!

babylove5 - 41 days ago
It has been a rough past 24 hrs. I went to er since I couldn't keep anything down not even a sip of water. I lost 5 pounds in 1 day!! This virus has it coming out both ends. 😞 They couldn't give me much as far as medication but recommended Ginger beer non alcoholic and it worked, plus the pills. I'm not throwing up anymore.

sher-baby - 41 days ago
Uugh!!! No sorry Babylove,I dont. All I would suggest is to force down water, If it will stay down!!! Good luck girl. Keep us posted

lexy-b - 41 days ago
Oh no babylove - feel better!

babylove5 - 41 days ago
I'm going to have to go to the er. I came down with the stomach virus from one of my children . I can't stop throwing up. Anyone know of a good medicine to ask for to make me stop? Can't get dehydrated.

sher-baby - 42 days ago
Ugh!! That's sucks!!! I hope u still enjoyed ur Vday! And your good to be moving makalab!!!! I'll tell you from now, that wouldn't be me!! Lol but you gotta do what u gotta do, right?? I'm feeling better today... A lil more mobile thankfully! I have had a few ppl ask me if I'm sure I'm due in April!! Lol makes me laugh!

machalaB - 42 days ago
The weeks are rolling on by, I haven't been on in a min and missing all the convos, lol I just moved 2 weeks ago n oh boy the unpacking is dreadful. How are you ladies?? I've been dealing with bh's n they are really uncomfortable, back pain hip pain u name it, the cute n fun stage is gone for me, lol I'm so tired n uncomfortable these days. Do any of you get the comment about being too big to be due in April? Ugh I hate that.

sher-baby - 43 days ago
I took a hot shower before i layed back down, I love showers too...there my place to chill and think. I plan on spending as much of my labour time in the whirlpool at the hospital to try and relax. My shower today would of been ok if my dad would stopped running the water; causing my shower to go hot and cold...sounds like fun, doesn't it? But ive been in bed most of the day and I still feel awful! I hope tomorrow is better

floydianslip2 - 43 days ago
Well, I have the back pain and am starting to have pretty bad swelling in my feet and ankles, but other than that it’s not too bad. Last night I was having Braxton Hicks for most of the night and they were pretty strong, that wasn’t very comfortable, and a lot of round ligament pain on top of that. DH is overly concerned right now about all of this and I keep reminding him that this is all normal for this stage in the game, and that unfortunately it’s going to get a little bit worse because I am going to get bigger by the day now, lol! Oh well, I think we’re all entitled to a bit of whining and moping! RJean, I do the same thing, the shower is my happy place right now.

sher-baby - 43 days ago
I go back on Wednesday then I'm going every 2 weeks..not sure when I go every week. I think it's after 37weeks...ugh I'm not even thinking about that!! I just wanna lay in bed. But DH is home today and he already pissed me off!!! He was telling me to stop pulling the covers off of him and I was like 'I'm not, I'm changing positions...trying to get comfy' then he's like 'Ya you are!!'.....really!!!?!?...he's telling me what IM doing?!?!....OMG..I need to just sleep all day today.....ALONE!!!! So I can pull all the friggin covers I want to!!!! Uugh!!! (..sorry, seems like I'm a whiny bitch today!!!)

babylove5 - 43 days ago
I think all pregnant women at this point feel like they are huge. It's just a normal thing to imagine that you are huge but in about 6 weeks we are all going to be excited to welcome the horrible labor pains so we can reclaim our bodies. We are in the home stretch now!!! Endurance that what we need. I finally get to see my doctor after 5 weeks. I hope I don't Hv to start going every week like this site says.

sher-baby - 43 days ago
In a few hrs, I may have to take a tylenol!! I rubbed my back and have been laying back down for atleast an hr now, and it's still aching!!! Today is gonna suck!

babylove5 - 43 days ago
The pain is not unbearable for me yet. The biggest problem is when he nestles his head right near the pubic bone. I feel such pain in my pubic bone and it feels like a lot of pressure . He has been keeping his head to the side recently but last night omg was painful. I take Tylenol sometimes to relieve the pain and when I sit I always lean to my right or left. I never sit straight or my back hurts.

sher-baby - 43 days ago
Hey ladies...omg today is NOT going to be a good day. I could hardly get out if bed, I hurt Sooo bad!!! Woow!!! My back...my ribs...my pubic bone! I actually caved and used Voltaren gel, I know ur not suppose to use it during pregnancy and I haven't used it yet during pregnancy, but it gave me such a relief pre-pregnancy that I had to try it this morning!!!! Omg...today might be one of my worst days yet!!! Sorry for whining!!!! Lol anyone else in just an unreal amount of pain/discomfort?

mandykat760 - 44 days ago
Sex is not okay with me right now. A few weeks ago I still enjoyed it but now I just feel like a fat cow. I do not want to be touched sexually. It doesn't feel bad but I have to be on my side and absolutely don't touch my stomach. Haha

sher-baby - 44 days ago
When I think about it, my daughter had a lot of hiccups when I was pregnant and she did have some reflux issues but the corrected themselves after she turned 1. This one doesn't seem to hiccup as much...it's just of recent he's had them a fair bit, maybe 3times a day

babylove5 - 44 days ago
I always worry about them having a easily upset stomach with the hiccups but I don't think it means anything. My daughter spit up a lot and she had a lot of hiccups, we had to put her on soy she has a slight milk allergy. Sher you should get everything you need. Floy it sounds like you are done like me except for the stroller.

floydianslip2 - 44 days ago
Well, I just got more items off of my list! I finally picked a diaper bag and bought it, I got the second car seat base, bottles, pacifiers, the tummy time mat that I wanted, and a couple of little things that I thought were cool but didn’t exactly need. Things are finally coming along, I just need a stroller, a high chair, and a few more little things. Such a good feeling to be finally getting things done! Sher, holy cow that is a lot of people!!! I can't wait to hear how many clothes you end up with, lol!

sher-baby - 44 days ago
I know...it's really not long now. I will miss being pregnant but I'm going to enjoy having my body back and not being hijacked by a lil person swinging and kicking in my ribs!! Lol so far we have about 40ppl coming to our baby shower!!! Whoo hooo....should be fun!

sher-baby - 44 days ago
Over the last few days this lil guys has had allot of hiccups....he hardly had them before but all of a sudden, he gets them a few times a day!! And same here floydianslip...I think they are making him angry, like he can't settel or get comfy because of them...so sad, but cute!

babylumpp2015 - 44 days ago
Phew! That's makes me feel better! They are so uncomfortable now a days! But what isn't anymore??? Few more weeks, yay!

floydianslip2 - 44 days ago
Oh yeah, this baby hiccups all the time! We’re on round 2 right now too, and it’s only 11:15. The funny thing is that the hiccups seem to make him mad, he’ll be okay for a while and after 5 minutes he starts squirming and kicking after every hiccup. Anyway, I’d say on average he gets them 4 or 5 times a day and they last 5-10 minutes.

babylumpp2015 - 44 days ago
My other 2 pregnancies I did not want sex almost ever. But this one I have been craving it! Probably because I can't have it because the bf moved out of town about 4 months ago for a job. I haven't seen him in over a month but he'll be in on Sunday to make it to the appointment with the high risk specialist and I am very much looking forward to it! Question ladies: anybody have an excessive hiccuping baby? Or is it any cause for concern. I've felt her hiccup up a few times during the whole pregnancy but yesterday she hiccuped about 5 times for over 15 minutes and today she's already on her third round and it's only noon. I know hiccup prepares the Lungs for outside but I've never felt either of my babies ever hiccup so much!

sher-baby - 44 days ago
Lol!!! It's been since I started showing that we haven't had sex....so maybe it's been like 4months?!?..I just remember looking at my self think 'eeeeewwww....wth are you doing???' And haven't done it since!!! Lol

floydianslip2 - 44 days ago
I'm officially off the hook for it too, DH has realized that it is just not what it used to be for me, and if I'm not enjoying it he can't either. But I'm so proud of DH right now I might have to give in! He actually stood up to his mother who was pressuring me to go to some air show so that she can see us while she's in town. He told her that he thinks it's a bad idea for me to be in a hot, crowded, noisy setting like that walking around all day long and tiring myself out. He told her that she needs to understand that we're giving birth in 7 weeks and in his opinion I should be resting and not overdoing it. Unreal, he never stands up to his mother!

babylove5 - 44 days ago
I know the orgasm causes contractions, but wth It starts before I even Hv a orgasm. That's the part I don't get. Why am I having contractions before the orgasm. I guess it's the pressure. I only want to Hv sex like 1 a month.... Lol. It's nothing but pain. This is TMI but he couldn't even cum because I start having contractions!

sher-baby - 44 days ago
It's 100% normal. Sex/orgasm releases oxytocin and that's whats causes ur contractions. They should go away within 30-60mins afterwards, so don't worry to much! But yes...no fun! I can't tell u the last time we had sex so I cant relate! Lol plus my DH can get a lil rough, and im already suffering with achy-breaky bones from the rib cage down and he has already said he doesn't want to hurt me anymore than I already am. Lol so no sex this Vday!

babylove5 - 44 days ago
V day is close ladies!! That means we have to Hv sex and then lovely contractions!!! Am I the only one that every time I Hv sex I Hv contractions? We are even using a condom to keep the sperm from bothering my cervix and I still get them. It's not a fun experience.
