32 Weeks Pregnant

Baby’s got a lot going on in that little noggin! Here are two foods to support brain growth. Plus, a free visual birth plan.

  • Baby at 32 Weeks Pregnant 🚼

    Baby is closing in on 4 pounds, and he’s about 18 inches in length. Yep, your little butternut squash is working hard!

    Upstairs, baby’s brain is working it too, establishing the trillions of connections—or synapses—between neurons. Sound intense? I’m sure it is! Which is why baby’s starting to sleep more hours each day—not that you would know it... from all the jabs and kicks you’re probably feeling.

    Now, you and I both know that every part of baby’s development is miraculous. But when you get into the details of brain development, the complexity and precision are mind-boggling.

    • Babies are born with around 100 billion neurons.
    • At birth, baby has around 50 trillion connections or synapses.
    • In the first 3 months after birth, the number of synapses increases 20 times over.
    • We’re talking 1,000 trillion synapses by age one.
    • Some quick perspective: It would take you 30,000 years just to count to one trillion.

    How mind-blowing and miraculous is that???

  • You at 32 Weeks Pregnant 🚺

    Since your baby’s brain is really growing now... let's talk about foods you can eat to support baby’s smarts.

    Like omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA). You can get them from pastured eggs, fatty fish that’s low in mercury like wild-caught salmon and sardines, and good ol' cod liver oil. (Double check your safe fish/seafood options here.)

    Some studies show that pregnant mamas who consume plenty of DHA improve their baby’s brain and visual development. And the DHA can also help prevent premature delivery and the baby blues. BRING IT!

    Healthy carbs can also help to grow your baby’s brain, since it feeds on glucose. Think fresh fruit smoothies and root vegetables like sweet potatoes, yams, beets, plantains, and more.
