32 Week Wall

32 weeks of pregnancy is when normal symptoms of pregnancy tend to get worse. This is the point when many women stop enjoying being pregnant and just want to get to delivery. I call this the 32 week wall.

There are many normal symptoms of pregnancy that can be uncomfortable. This list includes, swelling of the legs and feet: see Edema, pelvic pressure, pain in the upper abdomen from the baby kicking the ribs, increased heart burn, decreased appetite, feeling full after eating small amounts, constipation, hemorrhoids, pain with walking, difficulty sleeping, difficulty getting up, and the list continues. These are all normal and really tend to escalate starting at about 32 weeks.

If you suddenly experience some of these “miseries of pregnancies” don’t be concerned; nothing is wrong. You have just hit the 32 week wall.
