32 Weeks Pregnant

Baby's Development

Fat deposits are building up underneath the skin to insulate baby against the abrupt change in the temperature at birth.

Your Developments

Your joints and spine are softer than usual so you will need to take extra care when moving things around. Get someone to help where possible. Avoid heavy lifting. Swollen ankles may be caused by the pressure of the uterus on the large veins returning blood to the heart. This can induce water retention.

Pregnancy To Do's for Week 32

Elevate legs so they are level with your hips once or twice a day for an hour or so. Sleep on your left side.
