  • well your pretty much term now so the baby has i am guessing decended into your pelvis and is preparing for delivery so that could be why you look smaller

  • yeah, your baby probably dropped down in your pelvis. Can you breathe easier and more room in your stomach? Means labor is geting closer and baby is preparing to be born.

  • Yeah, you probably just dropped. I'm 37w 6d, and I feel the same way

  • Yep the same thing happened with me and it scared the heck out of me and she had stopped moving so I went in and it was just that she had dropped down so it should be nothing to worry about unless your baby stops moving and being active

  • It makes me smile every time I see this question because it's ALWAYS at 37 weeks. LOL I guess those babies just know when it's time to get ready to go.

    Your baby just dropped. Don't fret.
