33 Weeks Pregnancy Update

Baby’s gender:


Baby’s size:

This week baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (about the size of a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark.

Baby’s development:

He’s rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren’t fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. These bones don’t entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

My weight gain:

26 lbs, yikes!


Mashed potatoes and gravy.


Tired again but not the same comatose state like the first trimester. I am so thankful for the upcoming holidays so I can hopefully sleep in a little longer and get more rest. I am thoroughly exhausted by the end of the day.

Things of Note:

This little guy gets he hiccups nearly every single day. It is such a weird sensation because it feels like a very powerful heartbeat in my stomach. They usually only last a few minutes but I still wish sometimes I could help him out somehow.

He’s also started to fill up all the space in there or at least that’s how it feels. He’ll push and stretch and I’ll reach down and feel a giant hard lump on the top right corner of my stomach. Sometimes it can be very painful and I’ll push against it to try and kindly ask him to stop. He doesn’t though, haha.

    I love all your hair tutorials! Don’t worry about the pregnancy weight –much of that is extra water. I’ve had 3 children and almost all the weight comes off in 6 weeks.
