>33 Week Appointment

3 Aug


Putting together Jude’s new bouncer πŸ™‚

Kittens trying to help.

Today we had another appointment! It was a basic check up, nothing too exciting. Jude is well, growing right on track. His heartbeat is getting louder and stronger each week. Tonight we are going to do a tour of our Labor & Delivery department which is exciting πŸ™‚ I go on Thursday to register for available childbirth classes and will hopefully be starting next Tuesday! Yay πŸ™‚

I am feeling pretty good, mostly just tired. I have had some morning sickness in the past week or so, never a fun time. I have become extremely uncomfortable and fear what my last few weeks will be like. Swimming helps me so I have been trying to do that as much as possible. We are very excited for what is to come and usually spend any free time we have trying to spend time with friends & family, cleaning or finishing up things in the nursery.

Week 33

How Big is the Baby at 33 Weeks Pregnant?
By pregnancy week 33 your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds and may be a little over 19 inches long!

Your Baby’s Growth and Development
Your baby is busy concentrating on weight gain during pregnancy week 33 and during the remainder of your pregnancy week by week. Your amniotic fluid may be at the highest level it will reach during your pregnancy at 33 weeks. Your baby’s brain has been busy growing rapidly during pregnancy at 33 weeks, increasing the size of your baby’s head by as much as 3/8 of an inch. Your baby’s skin will start changing from red to pink as fat begins to accumulate beneath its surface.

Your Growth and Development
By 33 weeks pregnant your uterus is a little over 5 inches above your navel. You may have gained up to 28 pounds by 33 weeks pregnant, though some women will have gained more. During this point in pregnancy many women find that they gain weight faster than at any other time. This is partly due to the rapid growth your baby is experiencing. Most babies will put on 5-9 ounces every week from this point out!

I will be full term in less than 4 weeks, my due date in less than 7. Wow, amazing!
