    So.... I thought my belly was dropping gradually over the last few weeks - no chance - when you lighten, you LIGHTEN! LOL

    I'd just got back from a shopping trip with my OH, I was carrying some bags into the house when I felt an almightly weight/pressure in my pelvis - bit like a sack of potatos being slung in there! :) - thought it might be my imagination and asked OH, who agreed it looked like baby had slid down.

    I took a picture on Monday at 37+5 weeks (Left picture) - and took a similar one today at 38+3 (Right picture) - and my belly now resembles a ski slope :)

    I thought I'd post it up incase any ladies wanted to see a comparison? I looked on Google for some but there ain't many around!

    Enjoy :) x

    Thank you so much for posting your pictures!

    I've been feeling loads of pressure in my pelvis yesterday...but unfortunately I don't think my little guy dropped yet :( I've been wondering what a dropped belly looks like compared to a non-dropped belly though so these pics def help!
