How Big is My Baby at 33 Weeks?

Your baby is now around 4lbs and about 44 cm long! It’s not long until you meet them and it’s around this time that they should start getting into an engaged position. There’s much less amniotic fluid now too as your baby is taking up more and more space. Movements can start to feel a little sharp and depending on their position you may feel quite uncomfortable at times.
