Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week

What My Baby Looks Like in Week 33

You may feel Braxton-Hicks contractions during week 33, and, as you can see in the photo, your baby continues to grow. He'll gain nearly a half pound per week until birth.

Weighing about 4 pounds, your baby will continue to gain approximately ½ pound per week until birth. In addition to nutrients, the umbilical cord is supplying your baby with immune proteins called antibodies that will help your developing baby fight infections after birth. Your uterus may have started to generate practice contractions known as Braxton Hicks contractions.
