Yippee!! 33 weeks pregnant, another 1 month plus and the baby would be out to see the world. As we had some errands to run after the prenatal check-up, we didn’t let the kids follow us to the Gynea.
My weight is now 50kg, had gained 1kg over the past 2 weeks. Dr Chan first measured the baby’s legs and the head. Dr Chan zoomed in on the baby’s face after he had measured the baby. I had a hard time figuring out the parts on the face as the screen seems dark. Seems like Dr Chan had got a new machine and we got a chance to see Dr Chan in 3D. We can see a clear view of eyes and nose but too bad the mouth was blocked. It’s really interesting to see the baby in 3D! Dr Chan told us that this time he gave us for free but next time he would have to charge us. keke According to him, it will be a small baby, weighing about 2.8kg when she came out of.
For the 33rd weeks of pregnancy, baby is practicing breathing to exercise the lungs. Baby can listen, hear and see. The bones are hardening now except for the skull, which is still quite pliable and not completely joined, to ease out of the relatively narrow birth canal. Baby's skin is also gradually becoming less red and wrinkled.
For me, I could feel the Braxton contraction now and then. It’s also hard to find a good position to sleep or lie down with a big tummy. Still having backache and I could not stand long without feeling giddy sometimes, feeling very tired easily, sometimes thinking is it that age had catch up?
Well, the next visit to the Gynea will be in 2 weeks time.
