  • It happened to me too when the baby started getting into position. He was heading down toward the birth canal so not taking up so much obvious space in the front of my belly.

  • That's starting to happen to me, too! I'm 35w5d & she's much lower than she was a couple of weeks ago. You're gonna have a baby soon - yay!!

  • You notice your belly looking smaller or is this a care provider's measurement?
    The position your baby in probably has a lot to do with it.
    Is it your first baby?
    Are you/have you been healthy?

  • Babys probably dropped and it can happen depending on how they're laying. I'm only 23 weeks and I look bigger on eminute and smaller the next. Just depends on where my little one has decided to put himself.
