Nobody would argue that being a mother is a wonderful experience. However, only the mothers know how hard this period can be, especially if you are expecting the first child and your body do not handle all the changes very well. All the questions that keep spinning in your head can be not any less tiring then the physical inconveniences you have to deal with. One of the most common among such questions are „how many pounds exactly should I gain during each week of pregnancy?“, „why is it so important?“ and „what if I gain too much or do not gain enough weight? Does it mean that something is wrong with me or my baby? Does it put him at risk? To answer each of these questions in detail we would have to look at variety of physiological aspects. However, this would be a waste of our and your time. Thus in this article we will point out the main facts you should know and concentrate on 32 weeks pregnant weight gain.
So first of all, let us tell you that even the ladies who used to have exactly the same body mass index tend to gain different amounts of weight during pregnancy and this does not necessarily mean that some of them are doing better than others. Slight variations are completely normal and you should only get worried if your actual 32 weeks pregnant weight gain is significantly different than recommended. Yes, “significantly” is a little too abstract word to use in such case, but the thing is that only your doctor who knows your exact condition and medical history can tell you whether it is actually time to get worried or not. So what we suggest is you look at our recommendations and if your actual weight gain is different by 1/3rd or more, you start controlling your cravings more carefully (but do not diet!) and maybe call your doctor for consultation. So, if your pre-pregnancy body mass index fell within the limits of 18.5-24, you should gain 23-30 pounds. For example, if you are 62 inches height and used to weigh 120 pounds, now the scale needle should be at 149 pounds.
This 32 weeks pregnant weight gain might seem a lot, knowing that by this time your baby should weight only about 4 pounds and be some 17 inches long. However, you should be aware that you are carrying not only the baby, but also the placenta, ammonic fluid, increased blood and fluid volume, additional fat (it will be necessary for labor and breastfeeding) and breast tissue!
