33 Weeks Pregnant – My Pregnancy Week-by-Week

33 Weeks Pregnant

I’m 33 weeks pregnant – and 33 times my normal size!  Ok not really, I’m just feeling quite big.

This week has been lovely (despite a nasty head cold) – nice and sunny and I’m getting myself a bit more organised in preparation for the new baby.  A BIT!

As the end of the my pregnancy draws nearer, I’ve been feeling quite reflective on my life pre-babies.  This will be my last baby (are you reading this, Mr M?) and I’m so excited about having my ‘complete’ family and making plans for our future.

With the benefit of hindsight of course, there are some things I wish I’d done before having kids and I’ve written about them here.

More than anything though, I’m getting really excited now!

As far as symptoms go, the pelvic pain is still not great and I’ve also gotten some cramping under my bump when I’ve been walking.  I’m still using my (affiliate link) Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow which is making sleep more comfortable although insomnia has struck in the last couple of weeks so I’m sometimes not getting to sleep until well after midnight.  If you’re up then, please Tweet me – I’d like the company!

Miss M has been bonding more with my bump which is lovely and I hope that continues!  This week she was sat on my lap and Mini kicked her which was the cutest thing ever!  She’s also been touching my bump more and saying ‘Ello Babby’ which is my hormonal state makes me well up instantly.

The itchy skin has really subsided but I did develop a patch of eczema on one of my inner elbows – which is weird as I’ve never had it in my life before but apparently can happen during pregnancy.  Hopes Relief kindly sent me some of their (affiliate link) Hope’s Relief Intensive Dry Skin Rescue Cream and I’ve been putting this on daily so hoping it works it’s magic soon.  It can be used on eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis so will be a good one for our bathroom cabinet.

I hope you’re all having a lovely week and my fellow expectant mums are enjoying your pregnancy – comment below with how far along you are and how you’re feeling!

    Not long to go now! These last few weeks are hard aren’t they when you feel so big but still have things to organise. Just keep thinking the extra weight is all baby, and actually I found after both my babies were born I got more sleep after the birth in those first few weeks than at the end of pregnancy!! x #sundaystars

      Hurray Julia! So true – it gets harder physically but there is more to do nearer the end! I love that you slept better afterwards, it really gives me hope :)
