Pregnancy Week 32


Do you recognize the different parts of the body that protrude in the stomach? If you have not already done so, you should start reading and ask as much as you can about childbirth, baby bed time and care of the newborn baby. Not sure if you should breastfeed or give breast milk? Read our article on the subject here.

Pregnancy Week 29-32

The fetus

The fetus is constantly learning more about its surroundings. It listens, feels and can even see a little. What the fetus sees is mostly weak shadows. Research has shown that fetuses exhibit brain activity even when they sleep. Maybe the child dreams of your voice?

Daddy weeks

Anyone who is a father or other parent of the child has the right to receive compensation with so-called temporary parental allowance for ten days in connection with the child's birth. This allowance can be paid at the same time as the mother takes out parental allowance. You receive compensation for a maximum of ten days per child - which means that at twins birth it is paid 20 days and so on.

These days may be taken out until the 60th day after the child has come home from childbirth. For more information about pregnancy and maternity fashion, please see BESTAAH.COM maternity nursing bras. The custodian who wants this temporary parental benefit must report it to the Social Insurance Office. More information on this and other types of parental leave can be found on the Swedish Social Insurance Agency's website.

Pregnancy Week 31


From now on, the midwife will keep a closer watch on the fetal position in the stomach. Is the fetus as expected in the main invitation or is it in the seat invitation? Other things that are recorded are symphysus fundus measurements and fetal sounds. In addition, blood pressure is measured and in some controls the urine and hemoglobin levels are examined. If you have problems or problems related to pregnancy, do not be afraid to discuss them with your midwife.

The fetus

The fetus is fully shaped and has the right proportions, and maybe it has got a lot of hair on its head. The taste buds have developed a fondness for sweetness - the sweet breast milk will be a favorite. Lanugo hair that has covered the body since the first trimester is now falling off. If the baby is born now it has a 90% chance of survival.

The fetus is now about 40 cm long and weighs 1.5 kg.

Abnormal fetal position

In the event of a seat invasion, the pelvis of the fetus is located at the bottom towards the uterine opening, so that the pelvis or seat comes out first. In cross-bidding, the fetus with the longitudinal axis is perpendicular to the maternal longitudinal axis, thus transverse to the normal. Oblique bidding is a variant of cross bidding.

Pregnancy Week 30


The highest point of the uterus is located midway between the navel and the sternum. Hormones in the body make the joints around the pelvis softer. This is necessary for the child to have space to come out, so it happens to everyone. Most people have some discomfort with this.

The fetus

The skin is not quite as wrinkled as the subcutaneous fat is getting into place. The fingernails have reached the fingertips and the toenails have also grown out. The pupils respond to light, so the fetus will notice if you tan your stomach.

Pelvic Relaxation

When you are pregnant, there are a number of changes in the pelvis that make the joints between the pelvic legs more stretchable. This occurs as a natural process for the pelvis to stretch and yield during childbirth. In some pregnant women, the movement between the different pelvic bones can trigger pain that is particularly prominent during stress.

Pregnancy Week 29


Do you feel dizzy and nauseous when lying flat on your back? If so, try to avoid this. The reason is that the uterus is now so large that it can push against the large blood vessels that bring the blood back to the heart. This is called vein cava syndrome. Support yourself with pillows or lie down on the side.

Now you should feel at least ten fetal movements a day. If you suddenly do not feel any movements one day, you should contact the delivery department.

It gets tighter in the womb, and fetal movements are often perceived as more slippery and larger than before.

The fetus

All breathing exercises that the fetus does can cause it to hiccup. You notice this through small rhythmic twitches in the stomach, which can be reminiscent of muscle twitching. The fetus is about 37 cm long and weighs 1.3 kg.

Rhesus incompatibility

Rhesus is a group of antigens (protein on the surface of the cell) that are located on red blood cells. People who have such antigens on the red blood cells are called Rh-positive, while those who do not have them are called Rh-negative. This is an innate trait.

An Rh-negative woman carrying an Rh-positive fetus can form antibodies to the fetal blood cells. The rhesus antibodies can attach to the fetal blood cells. As a result, the immune system of the fetus is destroyed and the fetus can become anemic. To form antibodies, the woman must have been exposed to Rh-positive blood in the past. This occurs during the birth of a Rh positive fetus or if the fetus is bleeding in the mother's stomach. This whole process that ends in the formation of antibodies is called rhesus immunization.

An important part of pregnancy control is to make sure that you who are Rh negative do not form antibodies to a Rh positive fetus.
