I am so excited to hit 32 weeks. That’s 5 weeks until full term and the countdown. I am one of those pregnant women who counts down to full term but that is the goal after that you just receive the constant phone calls “did you have the baby yet?”
We have been on Winter Break from school so luckily I haven’t heard any of the annoying comments or remarks like “your big” or “your small”. In fact I am already counting down the days to Maternity Leave!
I have been busy buying the last of the things I need and want for Shelby with the Glider and Ottoman being my last big purchase to make and the rest are just little things. I love sitting in Shelby’s spot n our room and imagining her in there, it’s just so exciting how close it is until she is here in our arms!
I have my next midwife appt. next Tuesday and it will be my 33 week appointment. I think I have one more every 2 week appointment then start weekly appointments until the baby comes! As of my last appointment I still have not gained any weight (which I am happy and so is my midwife) and my fundal height was 34. But I have measured ahead the entire time even though baby measures perfectly. I am not worried about a bigger baby (yet) as I know I had an extra layer of fluff lol.
Your Baby in Week 32 of Pregnancy
What’s up with your baby? She’s starting to get ready for her big debut, tipping the scales at almost four pounds and topping out at just about 19 inches. In these past few weeks, it’s all about practice, practice, practice as she hones the skills she’ll need to thrive outside the womb — from swallowing and breathing to kicking and sucking. And speaking of sucking, your little one has been able to suck her thumb for a while now. Something else to note: As more and more fat accumulates under your baby’s skin, she’s becoming less transparent and more opaque.
