28 weeks today and my circumference has shrink by 2 inches. Should I be worried??? I felt smaller this morning and sure enough when I took out the tape I was. Baby still moving and heartbeat strong at doctor yesterday

How did you measure yourself? Have you been measuring yourself all along, or are you just comparing to what the doctor did yesterday? If the baby has moved position, it may appear that your bump is smaller than it was, when really, it's just a different shape.

I can't say from experience (yet!) but I would think the same as Sydney Bristow. I'd say the baby just shifted position. My friend's bump used to go lopsided if the baby shifted one way or the other!

I had measured myself Monday/Tuesday and was 50.5 inches circumference back to bellybutton. Today I felt smaller and when I measured (same tape same place) was 48.5 inches. Baby's moving anyway once it doesn't sound too unusual. Thanks girls xx
