THIRTY-TWO WEEKS PREGNANT: THE WEIGHT AND THE SIZE OF THE FETUS
On the 32 week of pregnancy your baby’s size reached 38-42 cm, fetal weight by 32 weeks of gestation is of 1600-1800. The proportions of the head and body look like a newborn baby. Wrinkles that cover the face of the baby are smoothed, the skin on the body becomes lighter and ceases to be red and wrinkled.
DEVELOPMENT AND POSITION OF THE CHILD IN THE WOMB
The brain of the baby increased greatly. On the 32nd week of pregnancy its volume is 75% of the adult human brain. Therefore, the baby’s head is increasing too. The baby is going to take the correct position before birth – head down, back to the left.
On the 32nd week of pregnancy the foundation for the future newborn immune system is laid. The fetus receives immunoglobulins from the mother, and the antibodies are produced in his bodies. They will protect the newborn during the first months after birth. During this period, the child’s bones are even more compacted and heavy.
ACQUIRED SKILLS ON THE 32nd WEEK OF PREGNANCY
At this time the nervous system of the child is actively developing. On the 32nd week of pregnancy the baby perfectly hears what is happening around. He lives in the rhythm of your heart knocking, familiar with the noise that produces the mother’s body. He hears your voice, so talk to him, sing lullabies and tell poems. After the birth he will accurately determine by voice where is his mom.
On the 32 week of pregnancy the child sees. If the light falls on him, his pupils constrict.
The kid is preparing for life outside the mother’s belly: he actively moves his arms and legs, swallows amniotic fluid, conducts breathing exercises for the lungs, sucks the finger.
