33 Weeks Pregnant

Now that you have finished being 32 weeks pregnant and are moving closer to your due date, your doctor might want to see you more regularly. More so if you have been having any pregnancy complications or if you have had a high risk pregnancy.

Changes in Your Body at Week 33 Pregnancy

At 33 weeks of pregnancy your waistline is growing and your belly, by now, will look like a football. But please continue to bask in the glory or motherhood and love your body. At this stage you are probably gaining a pound every week. But most of it is going to your baby and to the placenta.

Your Baby’s Development at Week 33 Pregnancy

33 and then 34 weeks of pregnancy means that your baby’s bones begin to harden at this stage – except the skull. The skull remains soft and flexible because it needs to travel through the birthing canal.

From this period onward the baby develops periods of deep and active sleep. It is the periods of active sleep when his or her brains undergo stimulation and helps it to mature more.

Week 33 Pregnancy Tips and Advice

Insomnia is a fairly common thing at this stage of a woman’s pregnancy. The excitement and the aches might keep you from sleeping for long hours. But do lie down and relax whenever you can.

For feet pain, do not stand for long stretches. And also soak them in warm water to ease the discomfort.

At 33 weeks of pregnancy if your baby is not in the head down position as yet then some yoga exercises help. However do take your doctor’s advice before you begin any such exercise.

Don’t lay on your back when lying down. Not only will this reduce the blood circulation to the baby. But it will also make you feel light headed. This is because when you lay on your back the uterus compresses your Inferior Vena Cava – a blood vessel. Due to this lesser blood returns to your heart and from there to the brains and to the other organs.

The numbness of your limbs can be overcome with suitable exercise. Speak to your doctor to find out what form of exercise is the best for you.

Also do read our short guide to managing pregnancy to know more such tips and advice.

Better to be Safe

A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem.

While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband, "You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here, in the Holy Land, for $150."

The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.

The undertaker asked, "Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your wife home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and you continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Trust your judgment today. People will appreciate your good sense. Don’t be afraid to share your ideas. Be responsible, but keep things in balance. Make time to do something you especially enjoy. Some people will be feeling rather nervous. Any public presentation will go well. In romance, the direct approach is best.

You’re naturally cooperative and find it easy to do things that make people feel welcome. Today you have the power to help others who are nervous and afraid. Point out the flaws in their thinking and propose something practical to do together. It’s a lucky night for a romantic date.

Energetic people are your best friends today. Reach out and ask for any help you might need. This is no time to go it alone. With emotions running high, arguments are possible, but they are not likely to be serious. As much as possible, channel your energy into physical outlets.

Act on your instincts today and you won’t go wrong. You may need to give up a bit of control and put logical thinking aside for the day. Let the wind take you where it wants you to go. Explore your mind and its interactions with others. You’ll find that it will be just about impossible to solidify any plans. You’re better off exploring options and comparing notes with others. Don’t pigeonhole yourself into one way of thinking.

You might be a bit confused with the mood of the day which fosters quick action and a sporadic approach to things. More than likely, this approach isn’t exactly in line with your usual methodical protocol. Do what you can to merge with this energy in order to add a more spontaneous spark to your daily routine.

Activities of some kind could put you in the public eye today. Some work you’ve done well might bring you richly deserved acknowledgement. Your energy and enthusiasm are already high, and you’re probably all fired up to do more. This could bring up thoughts of changes in your working situation. But don’t give notice right away. Some careful thought is needed.

With the current aspects at play, you could find that the hard work you’ve done in the past finally brings financial rewards. This will make you very happy, but don’t get carried away and go on a spending spree! Treat yourself a little. Celebrate with a friend. Take care to exercise a little good sense. You don’t want to buy too much and have to take a lot of it back to the store.

Contacting an old friend brings unexpected results. Carefully consider the details of any legal contract or partnership concern. Consider planning a party or going out with a group of friends. Be willing to try something new. Hidden feelings may appear as a detached attitude on the part of someone you like.

If you are a parent, then pay extra attention to your child today. He may want to say something and might require a little encouragement from you before opening up. Or he may simply require a hug or a pat on the shoulder. Either ways, simply spend some extra quality time with your child today.
