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

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

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 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.

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.
