Do you ever have days where your bump suddenly feels smaller?

I'm hoping I'm just less bloated than normal or maybe at 31 weeks the baby has changed position. He has always been transverse and most days I look like a whale.

Does this happen to other people?

Yes actually. Bump is oddly feeling smaller today. I also think bloating is responsible smile

yes! Isn't it crazy? I am at a similar stage to you and I can look dramatically different from one day to the next. Bloating, whether I have done a big poo (or not), baby's positioning, and what I've been doing - all of these things seem to affect how my bump looks. I don't know what was going on last night, but it went really pointy in the middle for a while- like he was tenting [weep]

In a few weeks time he'll have less space to move and it will then just come down to how full/ empty my stomach and bowels are, I suspect.

yep pretty much every morning! not as far a long as you (28+1) but my bump is considerably smaller of a morning than it is by lunch time. I put it down to gravity as ive been lying on my back most of the night so baby is further back grin could be totally wrong but that's my theory!! its twice the size and extremely hard come night time!

Yep. 29 weeks, I can do my coat up in the morning but it's a much tighter squeeze on the way home from work haha

With DS1 my bump suddenly 'shrank' when he moved from transverse to cephallic, maybe baby is gearing up for their grand entrance!
