33rd Week Pregnancy Highlights

The Soft Spots

Your baby’s skull bones will now overlap and compress into a bullet-like shape that eventually helps your baby to pass through the birth canal.

Huff And Puff!

As your uterus continues to expand and exert pressure on your internal organs, it’s quite normal for you to pant and feel shortness of breath with light activities.

How Big is Your Baby?

The amniotic fluid inside the uterus increases up to 1 litre, providing a warm and cozy environment for the baby to float in. Now your baby can differentiate day and night by the penetrating light through the thin uterine walls. Your little one has developed an immune system, which is a step closer to leading a healthy life outside the womb. The baby’s bones are developing to be stronger, except the skull bone, which remains soft in order to facilitate safe passage through the tiny birth canal during delivery.

Mother’s Changing Body: What to Expect


You may feel very pregnant by this week and get exhausted quite often.

Physical activities like walking or prenatal yoga can keep the worn-out feeling at bay.

If you are a first-time mom, you can expect your baby’s head moving towards the pelvis region and pressing the cervix.

If you are a second-time mom, you can expect it a week before labor.

33rd Week Pregnancy Symptoms

There aren’t any other new symptoms this week so relax and concentrate on a stress-free sleep schedule.

Pregnancy Tips for Week 33


This is a preconception phase and you need to take better care of yourself to ensure a smooth pregnancy. Therefore, you should:

  • If your nails are brittle, try eating biotin-rich foods such as bananas, avocados, whole grains, etc.
  • To avoid insomnia, follow a strict sleep pattern. Cut unnecessary naps, read magazines, and novels or listen to music till you feel sleepy.
  • Leave your pets outside and practice this till the end of your pregnancy. This is to avoid the risk of tripping when your tummy grows bigger every day.
  • Keep a track on your baby’s movement in the mornings and evenings. Count the movements such as kicks, rolls, flutters, etc., and see if there are enough movements. Consult your gynecologist on how to track the baby’s activities.
