33 Weeks pregnant - What to expect?

Những thay đổi của thai nhi tuần thứ 33

You've almost made it! Just a few more weeks and you will be rocking your little one to sleep. 

If your baby were born now, it is likely to need some support to help it breathe, but perhaps not. Their own little body is producing surfactant which will help their airways to stay open and not collapse. If you were admitted to hospital with threatened premature labour this week, you would most likely be given an injection of cortisone which would help your baby’s lungs to mature.

There is about 1 litre of amniotic fluid, creating a warm, sterile bath for your baby to float around in. The amount of amniotic fluid is a sign of how well your baby's kidneys are working. They should be producing around 500ml/day at this stage of your pregnancy.

Urinary leakage aka "incontinence" is more common in women who've been pregnant before. When you laugh, sneeze, cough or lift something heavy, a small amount of urine may leak out of your bladder.

The baby is pushing your stomach and intestines up and out of their normal positions. This means you don't have the luxury of being able to digest your meals comfortably. Check with your doctor about safe antacids which can be consumed during pregnancy.

Braxton Hick's contractions are painless uterine contractions and are nature's way of providing a practice session. They will also help to create a surge of oxygenated blood to the placenta. Unless they are accompanied by pain, become regular or you are losing fluid from your vagina as well, don't be concerned. A simple change of position or warm shower can often help them to settle.

Hints for the week

Your Physical Changes on 33rd  week

  • No matter how much you love them, most couples find their relationship with their pets' changes once they become parents. As you get bigger and a little more awkward, you need to reduce the risk of tripping over recumbent pets in the house. Keep the door of the baby's room closed to avoid your cat making its bed in the cot.
  • Try not to worry if you aren't enjoying every minute of being pregnant. This is a common experience for many women, but one which isn't talked about too often.
