    hi ladies!
    im 38 weeks tomorrow :happydance:
    but i woke up this morning and noticed my bump is alot smaller :S
    is this because she has dropped?? this is my 2nd child and i dont remember this happening with my 1st :S
    also she is not moving a lot i haven't felt her move at all this morning :wacko:
    is any of this a cause for concern? should i contact my midwife???

    I would personally say you do look smaller...

    Maybe just give your midwife a call... just to check!

    Dear, honestly I don't know, but didn't want to R&R. Has LO moved in the meantime?

    Hope all is well! :flower:

    I don't think it sounds like anything to be worried about. The same thing happened to one of my friends, but she called the midwife just to be sure and she went into hospital. Like I say, everything was fine, but it put her mind at rest and if you're worrying, it's only going to stress you out more.

    Is there not any other midwifes at the hosp though? I no if i have a prob i would just speak to whichever one answers the phone. I would phone now if u havnt felt since last night to be sure. But to put u at ease a lil bit i think they move alot less bcoz of the amount of space they have. Hope all is ok xx

    I'm sure you can call your docs... I know I would with decreased movement... Or maybe you can just go to the hospital?
    Also, have you laid down yet to see if she's moving? Have some o-juice and see if that gets her going....

    phone labour and delivery. Your midwife would refer you there anywax. Thats a long time with nothing!if baby has dropped that can change movement. But id get checked asap. Update soon x

    Call labour ward asap Hun just for reassurance,baby should b big enough now to feel if there's a little wriggle going on and to have nothing since last night they will definitely want to just check u both over.maybe the bump has got smaller coz baby has turned back to back xx

    if your MW is on holls call your local triage or L&D they will see you as soon as you can get there if they are anything like they are round hear. it may be worth getting checked out as there is definatly a change in your bump and you defoo need to be monitored if you havent felt baby move sice last nite xx

    It's said you can lose weight in the last few weeks.

    Also if baby has engaged (dropped) your bump will appear smaller because baby's head isn't floating up in your uterus, it's down in your pelvis.

    You look like you've lost a tiny bit of weight and baby is engaged to me.

    If you can't feel your baby moving, that's a different situation... call.
