Pregnancy Week 33

Baby Development

By this week, the baby will have grown up like butternut squash with proper development of eyes and limbs. The further development procedure consists of several other remarkable transformations to be noticed. The fetus’s skull is still agile for its easy parturition through the vaginal canal of the mother. The baby drinks a pint of amniotic fluid daily for proper growth, thus leading to weight gain by adding muscles and flesh.

Apart from the physical expansion, the baby can also differentiate between day and night with the help of light passing through the uterine walls. It also creates its immunity system passed on by the mother, which will help it sustain the germs once exposed to the outer world.

Changes in mother

It’s difficult to sleep with such a large belly and encounter all the hormonal fights within your body, leading to a deficiency of apt rest. The occurrence of fetal movement is a must. The mother might start feeling the kicks and rolls of the baby, giving an account of the energetic activities.

The baby’s growth can be noticed directly from the changes in the body structure of the mother, determining a healthy acclivity in the graph. Babies born to mothers with an apt amount of omega-3 fatty acids(DHA) have an edge in development, and DHA also helps in preventing preterm labor and postpartum depression.
