32 Weeks Pregnant

Pregnancy Body Changes at 32 Weeks Pregnant

At 32 weeks pregnant, your uterus is measuring about 5 inches above your navel and is pushing your organs every which way (wherever there is room). This may cause heartburn or constipation.

In order to lessen the symptoms of constipation, drink lots of water and eat plenty of fiber. If it gets really uncomfortable and you are unable to have a bowel movement without pain, talk to your healthcare provider about stool softeners.

Heartburn may become more of a problem as the uterus pushes up on the stomach. In order to minimize heartburn and indigestion, eat frequent small meals instead of fewer larger ones.

You may be experiencing breathlessness and fluid retention. Varicose veins, swollen ankles, hands and face are all symptoms of fluid retention. If the swelling is sudden it can be a sign of preeclampsia.

This condition causes high blood pressure and protein in the urine. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you experience any of these symptoms, since this condition can affect both the mother and fetus during the second half of pregnancy.

Your Baby's Growth and Development

32 weeks pregnant During week 32 of pregnancy, your baby is about 4 pounds and 11.4 inches from crown to rump, your baby would have an excellent chance of survival outside the womb if you delivered now.

Your baby is larger, so there will be less room for him or her to move around. His or her kicks or movements may be less frequent.

The final touches are being placed on your baby masterpiece. Eyelashes, eyebrows, and the hair on your baby's head are evident. The lanugo hair that has covered your baby since the beginning of the second trimester is falling off, although some may remain on the shoulders and back at birth.

By the time you are 32 weeks pregnant, all of your baby's five senses are also functional, including hearing. This means that your baby is becoming familiar with all sorts of noises within his or her surroundings, including your heartbeat and digestion.

Your baby's arms and legs are fully proportioned in relation to the size of the head. His or her hair on their head continues to grow while the lanugo continues to fall off.
