Your Body at Week 32

By now, you are probably feeling rather large and in charge. Normal day to day activities may take a bit longer than usual.  This is now a great time to adapt to how slow things will be when your baby arrives. No more sprinting out the house in a few seconds, it will all be about not forgetting the nappy backpack!

If you are finding yourself uncomfortable, try keep as active as you possibly can. This will help with keeping you energised throughout the day and relieve your aches and pains. 

Your Baby At Week 32 

This week, your baby's eyes are now opening and closing, as well as blinking and learning to focus. This means they will know if it is day or night outside the womb.


Week 32 TODO's

  1. Don’t forget to book a pregnancy yoga class to help relieve those aches and pains.
  2. Schedule someone to take some new-born photos of your little one once they arrive. You will want these treasured memories to look back on once they are older.
  3. If you haven’t already, buying a pram can be on this week to do list as you will want as much fresh air with your little one, once they arrive.
  4. Get your partner to give you a foot massage this week as you are probably feeling very swollen right now.
