Art Journal, Challenge 34 and Week 32

I usually make my weekly page by playing with the challenge in my art journal e-course. I didn’t play along with the journal at the moment but I definitely play with the art journal challenge.

I am really happy and excited to reach the 32 weeks milestone. That means I have 8 weeks more to go. Such a challenging and exciting experience for me.

32 weeks

“Your 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 practice 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.” source babycenter.

Your Body in Week 32 of Pregnancy

“This week, your body may start prepping for delivery day by flexing its muscles — literally. If you feel your uterus bunching or hardening periodically, those are practice contractions, otherwise known as Braxton Hicks. These rehearsals (typically experienced earlier and with more intensity in women who've been pregnant before) feel like a tightening sensation that begins at the top of your uterus and then spreads downward, lasting from 15 to 30 seconds (though they can sometimes last two minutes or more). How do you know these contractions aren’t the real thing? They’ll stop if you change position (try getting up if you’re lying down or walking if you’ve been sitting). “ source what to expect when you are expecting.
