33 Weeks Pregnant
By week 33 of pregnancy, you will have gained between 22 and 28 pounds from your pre-pregnancy weight. The good news is that of the pound a week you're gaining now, roughly half of it is going to your baby.
Your belly button may "pop" anytime from here on out (if yours already has, don't worry -- everyone is different). It will return to its normal look after pregnancy.
Other symptoms of late pregnancy you may be experiencing when 33 weeks pregnant include:
- Excessive tiredness (make sure to discuss the possibility of anemia with your doctor)
- Braxton Hicks contractions
- Pelvic aches (from the pressure of your baby).
You may also be noticing that you have strangely vivid dreams during this period of pregnancy. Also, you may experience a decreased sex drive (libido). This is completely normal.
