my tummy looks and feel like its deflated.

so i woke up this morning having my braxton hicks like normal( hate them so) they aren't a constent time apart so i know they are the braxton hicks 100% on that. but i'm looking at my tummy as i'm sitting watching a movie with my ds and i'm sitting like i have 100s of times and it looks like my tummy has deflated feels like it too. i think i might be leeking gonna wait a while more on that (like they told me last time i went in thinking i was). but i was wondering if it was normal to have the deflated belly feeling/look and if anyone knows anything.... freaking me out. oh yea i am 39 weeks due on the 8th.

  • If the baby dropped and engaged the shape of your stomach will change..even appear a bit 'deflated". It is a normal thing at 39 weeks, although many women don't engage until in active labor.

  • My belly looked deflated within an hour or so of my water breaking

  • movement and'or dropping. could really (not to get your hopes up) baby settling in the birthing position. it culd be a number of things. if you're due on the 8th i'm sure you gotta Dr appt in between there so i'd bring it up with them or even call your OB
