Your Baby's 32nd Week of Life

What's Happening with Your Baby

You may be surprised by your baby's reaction to his name -- he now recognizes it. He also is beginning to distinguish family members from each other and has different reactions for each. Of course, you and your partner are still tops in his eyes and he'll probably show some anxiety when away from either of you. In the physical realm, your baby may weigh approximately two and a half times what he did at birth. Remember, what he weighs is not as important as the pattern of his weight gain.

Taking Care of Yourself

Do you have a difficult time transitioning from your workplace to your home? Here are a few ideas to help you enter the door to your house peacefully:

  • Wind down in the car on the way home with a soothing tape of your favorite music.
  • Mentally plan what needs to be done that evening... before you get home.
  • Plan meals ahead -- perhaps freezing a few meals on weekends -- so you are not faced with the decision of what to eat at the end of a long day.
