How Will I Feel at 32 Weeks?

Your thoughts may now be turning to practical things like how to get to the hospital when you go into labour, who will look after any older children you may have and so on. And if it’s your first birth you may be spending a lot of time thinking about what you want your delivery to be like. It’s a good time to discuss your birth options with your midwife or try and attend a free antenatal class to learn more about what happens in childbirth.

How Big is My Baby at 32 Weeks?

Your baby is about the size of a cabbage and should now be settled into a final position, where they will stay until birth. But that’s not to say you won’t feel lots of movement – as space runs out you’ll be very conscious of your baby’s motions. Between now and your due date your baby will gain between a third to half of their birth weight – so a lot of their time is now spent growing fat layers and maturing their organs. Your baby will now have toenails and finger nails and will also have hair – or at the very least a little bit of fuzz on top!
