33 Weeks of Gestation

Your 33rd week begins

DAY 7 • OF THE WEEK 33

IMPORTANT: In this period it is possible that your baby is still sitting. Even some people saying that it is an indication for cesarean section, your baby can still turn around before delivery or even go through a maneuver by the doctor himself who can turn him over during delivery.

KEY INFORMATION BOX:
  1. At 33 weeks pregnant, Mom’s voice and heartbeat are the most pleasant sounds in the world for him!
  2. At 33 weeks of gestation, his auditory system is already fully formed and the baby can clearly recognize the sound of Mom and Dad’s voice and respond with kicks.
  3. With 33 weeks pregnant and if you are pregnant with twins, be alert, the day of your babies’ birth is very close!
  4. The baby has a full-fledged fetal development and thus the mother’s weight gain also increases.
  5. Weight gain during pregnancy is relative , what matters is the type of food that mom eats and try to balance the weight gain so as not to have problems like gestational diabetes.

MORE ON 33 WEEKS OF PREGNANCY

At 33 weeks pregnant, Mom’s voice and heartbeat are the most pleasant sounds in the world for him! At about 43.7 centimeters and around 1.918 kg , he kicks and can even turn to the head position (upside down ready for birth). But there are some babies who really like to sit on the mother’s belly and in this case if there is no change until birth, the doctor may recommend a manual maneuver to turn the baby over or opt for a cesarean.

 

Baby Development

At 33 weeks of gestation, his auditory system is already fully formed and the baby can clearly recognize the sound of the voice of mom, dad or a close relative and responds with kicks and movements when stimulated. These kicks that can disturb even the quality of the mother’s sleep, since they usually move around non-stop even during the early hours.

Every bone in your body is already rigid, except for the skull that has not yet fused to facilitate passage during childbirth . The parts of the head fit together like a puzzle while passing through the maternal pelvis . God made human nature perfectly, didn’t He? Everything is formed, developed and perfected at the moment that should occur. At 33 weeks pregnant and if you are pregnant with twins, be alert, the day of your babies’ birth is very close!

The amount of amniotic fluid that surrounds your baby is decreasing and reaching its limit. This is a sign that we are coming to an end and the day of knowing your greatest treasure is approaching !! At 33 weeks, your little baby is in your arms !!

How is Mom Feeling …

Is gaining from 500 grams to 1 kilo a week a lot? In some cases not! See, the baby has a full-fledged fetal development and with that the mom’s weight gain also increases , but know that the fact of having gained more than 10 kg, does not mean that the baby will weigh more.

I once read some cases in which the mother dieted the whole pregnancy and gained only 4 kilos, whenever she was hungry she drank a lot of water to “cheat the stomach” and the result was a small baby for her gestational age (SGA) , because she didn’t there was enough nutrient.

Now there is also an opposite case where the mother gained a beautiful 32 kilos and her baby was born with 2,300 kg. So the weight gain in pregnancy is relative , what matters is the type of food that mom eats and try to balance the weight gain in order not to have problems like gestational diabetes and hypertension.

The baby’s nutrition can vary according to the degree of the placenta in combination with the arteries that carry these nutrients from the mother to the baby. And already at 33 weeks of gestation, the placenta can present grade 1 or 2, but if it presents grade 3 the doctor can monitor the pregnancy week by week and monitor the pregnancy very closely. Supplementing the diet with the prenatal vitamin is recommended, as it can help the mother in preventing anemia and supplement her baby with all the necessary vitamins.

External factors…

Everything is getting more and more difficult, isn’t it? At 33 weeks sleep is no longer the same, anxiety is very great, pain in the back, legs and ribs are also very uncomfortable and even when eating, there was no problem now it is more difficult, because of the size uterus pressing the rest of the organs ends up shaking even the appetite and hindering digestion.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
