    after last nights crampy feelings today baby has been quieter and tho still squirmy shes not moving as violently, my bump is a bit sore and tight and it seems to have shrunk? i asked my OH and he agrees that my tum seems a lil smaller. not worried as shes still wriggling in there and its not overly painful i just havent heard of this sort of thing happening in anyone unless they were close to actual labour really. baby has been head down and low ish anyway so it dosent seem like shes moved down much more iykwim

    tomorrow, with a totally new mw too so not sure if that will be much use lol. i'll ask tho if its still freaking me out a bit. i just noticed it a couple of times today that i dont look or feel as huge as i have done the last few days lol. plus it felt like i have a lil more room under my ribs too lol. im not freaking or scared, just curious really

    yeah, was just thinking that since she was already down low anyway surely its a bit early for her to have dropped the rest of the way lol. tho it would bode well for my early labour feeling

    First babies get lower sooner from what I've read, it worried me at 28 week check that Albert is already head down but it seems rather normal

    Does the less pressure feel good though? I can't wait to feel it xxxxxxxx

    mine's been a wee bit like that recently - i posted about bump getting higher and lower - i was worried last week - cos in the space of two days she seemed to drop really far. But then a couple of days later the little bugger was right back up under my ribs again.
