32 Weeks Pregnant
Here's what's happening this week:
The development of baby
Baby is urinating more often
Baby is still growing
Measures about seventeen inches and weights about four and a half
The development of mom
Breasts may begin to fill with milk
Same swelling and discomfort
What baby is feeling
Baby doesn't have a lot of room to wiggle anymore, but is still starting
to get ready for the actual birth.
What mom is feeling
When mom is uncomfortable and having troubles sleeping, it can help
to eat a small snack before bed to help calm the body down - even
when the mind is racing.
Specific needs for the week
If you're having troubles with `leaking,' try increasing the Kegel
exercises that you are doing. Whenever you have to sneeze or laugh,
just do an exercise to help keep leaks to a minimum.
Specific concerns for the week
At any time of the pregnancy you feel chest pains or tightness, alert
your doctor or head to the local emergency room. It might just be
stress, but you never want to take that chance.
Special tip for mom
While your mom might disagree, it's completely safe to take a warm
bath during your pregnancy. The water does not penetrate the womb
and it's quite relaxing for you and for baby.
