Which week?

Week 33


Now your thoughts are focused on your baby most of the time. Talk to him, caress him, and tell him stories.


The expectant mother


You might notice that your baby now reacts to familiar noises and touches. He is also more active before meals and he feels it when you are hungry. Waist pains and shortness of breath might intensify, but they will get better once your womb descends.


The baby


The infant is ready to be born soon; he only needs to gain a little more weight. He weighs approximately 2 kilograms and is 40 centimeters long now. He is swimming in really warm liquid: the amniotic fluid is 37 degrees Celsius, more than 15 degrees warmer than the outside climate. The growing layer of fat under his skin will bridge this gap.


Doctor’s advice


You might get cramps in your feet and calves from time to time. You can help it by taking magnesium and calcium supplements in the form of effervescent or normal tablets. If you want to rely on natural sources, green-leafed vegetables, wheat germ, soy, plums, raisins, oranges and dairy products are rich in calcium. Ask your doctor for his recommendations.

Lifestyle


After you have collected the necessary documentation, you should compile your hospital bag. At our obstetric department we will provide you sanitary pads, intimate wipes, a robe and a pair of slippers, so you do not have to bring any of these. As a common side effect of breastfeeding, your breasts might leak, so you should get extra pads for your bra to avoid getting soaked. Pack comfortable pajamas or a nightgown with buttons on the front. We prepared a list to help you remember everything.
