Post subject: im freaking out!! my belly is shrinking instead of growing!!
ok so im 35weeks pregnant with my first child im having a boy and i went to the doctor last week they said i was dilated one centimeter and he was in the head down posistion...ok so you would think instead of getting smaller my belly would be growing and the skin getting tighter and tighter well the exact oposite is happening my belly looks as if its shrinking and the skin on my belly seems to be getting looser..the baby is still moving but when i sit down it doesnt look as if im pregnant at all i just looks as if i have a fat roll or something im just really worried!! help!!

Have you at any stage had extra water? It could be that the volume has lessened and therefore the skin isn't stretching as much as it had been.
Option 2 could be that baby is in a position further to the back of bump and therefore not stretching the skin out as much. If you're worried speak to your midwife hun xx
