33 Weeks Pregnant

Helpful Tips for Parents: Taking a Tour of the Hospital

Around week 33 of pregnancy, many parents take time to tour the hospital where they will deliver. Most hospitals offer tours -- this way, when you do go into labor, you are familiar with where to go, etc. Things you may want to ask the hospital staff may include the following:
 
  • Where should you go when you arrive at the hospital in labor?
     
  • Is there any pre-registration paperwork you should take care of now?
     
  • Can you see one of the delivery rooms?
     
  • What kind of facilities do they have, to help get through labor (bathtubs, exercise balls, televisions, DVD players, etc.)?
     
  • Do they have lactation specialists come to your room after delivery?
     

33 Weeks Pregnant With Twins or Multiple Babies

Mothers who are expecting more than one baby may find that their appetite is decreasing during week 33 of pregnancy because their stomach is cramped for space. The confined space also restricts the babies, which means that movements will become less forceful. However, the movements should not stop altogether. If you notice a marked change and lack of activity from your babies, contact your healthcare provider immediately.
