Thanks for the query.

32 weeks pregnancy means the lady is almost reaching term. Though labour / delivery process may start after 36 completed weeks, it is not uncommon for preterm labour to occur (before 36 weeks).

Hence I do not recommend a very long journey such as 36 hours train journey in a 32 week pregnant women.

Hope I have answered your query. Should you have any additional queries, I will be available to address them.
