    Two things I was wondering about.

    1 - my bump seems smaller, not smaller really to look at but it feels much smaller and much more manageable - I can move about much easier, turning over is no problem - is this because baby is engaged or could I have lost some fluid or something

    2 - I am literally sleeping for Ireland - I can sleep 8.,9,10 hours no problem only getting up to the loo once - this is unusual too isnt it :think: :think:

    it might have dropped into the pelvis or moved, giving you more room. Thats good you are getting a good sleep though, thats a bit unusual but I dont think its a bad thing. :hug:

    I don't know if it's normal or not and I know I must look like like a bus still but I have felt more 'tidy' over the last couple of days and the moving around is easier plus I have no rib pain at all now. I'm assuming that baby is moving downward but have no medical opinion to back that up!

    I have been sleeping very well too, full 9 hours plus long afternoon naps- perhaps it's because we are less uncomfortable thus being woken less?

    I hope it's normal and glad to see your post, as I'm not complaining about it!

    Still peeing lots though but I am really thirsty too

    I think your baby has dropped which is a great advancement! Still, I'd mention any physical changes to MW esp since your so close now :D xx
