You are welcome to week 33
This week there are a number of important changes.
Baby’s Growth :
During this month the amniotic fluid is at its top most level and the amount will remain the same after delivery. There has been a rapid growth in the brain and this has increased the head of the baby. The fat continues to grow And the skin colour of the baby turns from red to pink. The space inside the stomach is confined and they movement of the baby is not so intense now although it is more and more frequent.
Mother’s Changes :
As the baby grows inside the mother’s body is undergoing a series of changes.
your body is slowly and gradually getting prepared for the childbirth. You have gained almost a pound. You have a mild edema which is quite normal but if you have very bad headaches, see flashing lights and spots and there is a sudden increase in the swelling of feet, especially in the case of face, and at the same time you are feeling sick, and you have vomiting and nausea, you have to contact your care giver. You could be having pre eclampsia which is a condition caused due to high blood pressure, and is a very serious state in pregnancy. Your appetite may somewhat diminish due to the stomach cramps.
At this stage you might be asked to make a confirmed decision on circumcision but you must think it over before you make any decision. This is the time when you should take ample care of yourself. You must understand that taking care of yourself will help to take care of the baby. Therefore you should treat it as a priority and take ample care of yourself.
Father’s Role :
Mom has been very busy this week. In spite of her physical hindrances, she is in a joyful mood because of the coming on of the baby. So you can help her out with the list of friends, co-workers, relatives, and others. This is how to get started.
Inspiration of the day :
You can get yourself involved in a task that requires a lot of skill. This would help you keep off from the physical problems.
