    Some people have been telling me my bump looks smaller and some days I think its dropped, then the next day I have a bum tucked so high in my ribs I struggle to sit upright!!

    At mw last week bubs was head down and free, how do you know when it's properly dropped? Anyone else going up and down??

    I've not taken any bump pics so nothing to
    Compare.

    Pip keeps moving up and down. My 33 and 34 week pics in the bumpy section definately show it!

    Forgot to take my pic last night so will get DH to do it tonight. Pip was head down but not engaged when I had my mw yesterday.

    Think it's quite common for them to move up and down x

    Thanks larly. Was getting kinda frustrated thinking 'yes she's down' - then suddenly decides nope I'm not ready and bounces all the way back up again. Lol

    Mine moves up and down too. I was engaged at 1 midwife appointment, then free at the next. Sometimes I can get the palm of one hand under my ribs before I'm touching a bump, sometimes it's right up there. Such a tease!!!
