Week 32 of pregnancy

Baby now weighs approximately 3.75 pounds/ 1.7 kilograms and is about 17 inches / 42 centimetres long from head to toe. Although his lungs won't be fully developed until just before birth, your little one is inhaling amniotic fluid to exercise his lungs and practise breathing. 

Some babies have a head of hair already, others have only a few wisps. Thick hair at birth doesn't necessarily mean thick hair later on but children with fine hair in childhood usually have thinner hair in adulthood. 

If your baby is a boy, his testicles should be descending from his abdomen into his scrotum. Sometimes however, one or both testicles won't move into position until after birth. In two-thirds of all baby boys who have undescended testicles at birth, the condition corrects itself by the boy's first birthday. 

You're probably gaining a pound/ 450 grams a week, largely because your baby is likely to gain more than half his birthweight during the seven weeks before delivery. Make sure you are eating well in these last few weeks.

Feel so relaxed now as Monday was my last working day. For last 2 days, touchwood, I am able to sleep little bit and don't feel very tired. Saw my obstetrician last week and we heard ponyo's heart beats. What an amazing feeling to have two hearts beating in one body. My in-laws will be coming here end of january, that's   bit of relief.  It will be nice to spend some time with them before bub comes out. Aarav's new child care is starting from 29th jan which is bit closer to where we live, so that's a relief as well. In the next few weeks, I have to finish lots of pending house work. Feel really good now that I don't have to worry about going to work for a year:)
