    Just posted this in pregnancy chat but you girls in tri 3 might have experienced this more!

    Been to take my weekly bump photo today, and noticed how lower it seems to look compared to previous weeks! It seems a lot more slopey at the top and a bit more sticky outy near my belly button!
    I've never taken a bare bump photo before, but did today cos it's easier to see! What does everyone think?

    Here are photos for comparison.
    First photo taken at 27+1, second photo 28 weeks.

    Does this mean that baby is head down?

    It means when your bump is lower they usually drop after 30ish weeks and when beginning to engage but I would say baby is low xxx

    my baby went head down but my bump was still high....think cos it was sticking bum up or something. i think it can just depend how they are lying as to what your bump looks like...xx

    It's not until the engage that it drops properly if they are just head down it doesn't usually make a lot if difference to how your bump sits xx
