Is it normal to have your belly get pretty dramatically smaller at 23 weeks?

I still feel him moving, I'm just about 1/3 smaller now than I was 2 days ago.

  • No. Call your doctor. But maybe he just shifted.

  • i agree with mompam and fox maybe he just moved around to get more room just remember the more they grow the less space they have

  • He could have shifted which makes your belly look different. But, if your tummy looks smaller, you might want to make sure and contact your doctor.
    Good luck to you!

  • thank you, ladies! I just called my midwife, and she said to not worry. My uterus is measuring properly, and i was overly large for how far along I am, and now am an average size, but if i'm still worried, I can go into the dr. Baby probably just shifted. =D
