Fetal Development at 32 weeks:

umbilical cordUmbilical CordThe digestive tract is beginning to form, including the bulge of intestine that will grow into the umbilical cord to connect your baby to the placenta.
What's happening this week:
Baby is 11 1/2 inches from crown to rump, and now that his neck muscles are stronger, he can move his head from side to side. He continues to breathe and swallow amniotic fluid to condition his lungs and digestive system. His eyesight is getting better, but his eyes stay closed for most of the day.
