Disappearing belly

I'm 24 weeks pregnant and I have a rather large belly.
I wake up this morning and my belly looks like i lost 1/4 of it.
Is this normal? Should I be worried?

  • Your baby probably switched positions. Your baby was probably laying in the front and then switched to the back. I wouldnt worry, but if you still do ask your doctor. As long as your baby is still moving I wouldnt worry

  • baby may just have moved positions on you...check your weight if its the same, no leaking of fluids or anything- I wouldn't worry.

  • normal. baby moves, fluild moves. As you go through the day, you are more likely to build up extra fluids and mucles get tired, things move, etc.

  • Probably just water retention. You're fine.

  • I'm 25 weeks and my belly seems smaller today too. I think she's just in a different position. Somes days my belly sticks out more than others. It is disconcerting though.
