Your baby at week 33
Your Baby
Quick study. "All of my senses are working now!" Your baby's brain is still developing rapidly as her five senses get ready for the world outside the womb. At this point, she can see the liquid world around her; feel sensation when she grabs a toe or sucks on a finger; taste the amniotic fluid she's swallowing; and hear your heartbeat, your voice, and the rumble of your stomach. Of course, there's no air in the amniotic sac to carry scent, but if there were, she could also smell her environment.

Head most.
Because of tremendous brain growth, your baby's head circumference has increased by nearly 1.3 cm (about half an inch) just this week.

Mind the menu.
It's more important than ever to pay attention to your diet. Your baby's protein and fat requirements are at their greatest over the next few weeks, so be sure to continue to eat balanced meals. Your little one now measures about 45 cm (18 inches) and weighs more than 1.8 kg (about 4 pounds), and she'll double her weight over the next seven weeks.


Your Pregnancy
Scaling up. You should be gaining weight too-about a pound (just under 0.5Kg ) a week. You'll continue to put on pounds until just before delivery. Don't try to slow your weight gain even if you weigh more than you'd hoped. Your baby needs the extra pounds right now. There's plenty of time to lose weight after he's born.
