Well im 31 weeks today and since sat I have noticed that my bump has gotten alot smaller! It seems to have dropped down and also gotten slimmer down the sides! I started to lose my mucus plug a couple weeks ago bits here and there and had a lot stronger Braxton hicks just lately. Could baby have dropped ready for labour already? Should I be worried or am I being a little paranoid? This is my third baby if that makes any difference xxx

I'd be phoning my midwife. Not to panic, just for reassurance.

I take it there's no dampness down below?

No dampness apart from bit extra discharge and the odd bit of wee when I cough!!

Baby could have just moved but I'd personally call the midwife just for some reassurance

Unless you have any signs of early labour I wouldn't be too worried tbh. My bump noticably dropped at 28 weeks with DD, she was born at 35+6. Did you go full-term with your other 2?

Went near enough full term both born at 39 weeks. Xx

Call midwife who will measure you and if you have shrunk you should be sent for a placenta function test. This happened to me with DS near my due date and I got scanned the same day and put on the monitor for a few hours. All was fine, turned out my fluid was running low, I ended up going into labour 2 days later anyway.
