pregnancy by week

Week 33


Baby is soaking up antibodies for its new immune system, and putting on about half a pound a week. Go, baby, go!


Has the nesting instinct kicked in yet? If you find yourself scrubbing and polishing every inch of your home, then probably yes. It’s a natural urge to prepare a safe and healthy environment for your baby.


Get your bag packed for D-day; check out 2life’s list of suggested items. It might be nice to include a special gift (a.k.a. “push present”) for mom, if it seems like something she would appreciate. Make sure her bag is ready, too, and that you know where it is!


Make sure you have a car seat, and learn how to install it properly; baby may surprise you by arriving early, and you won’t be able to get home without it.
