Does it look like I've dropped?

I'm just curious because my lower abs feel like they are ripping apart!! My lower body has been increasingly in pain the past 2 days. What do u think? Sorry about the nude belly shots but I thought it would be easier to judge from.

This is 2 weeks ago (I think?):

This is today:

Kristina - I hope you feel better. I find when I don't get up and around alot during the day I have more pelvic and leg pain than when I do get up and at least walk around the house. I hope bedrest isn't making you feel worse

Hey gals!

Looking at those pics, I think my babies have had a growth spurt! LOL!! I actually can breath a little better, but I think that's because B has moved out of transverse position back to head down. who knows?? I also think you guys are right about the bedrest causing me pain. If I sit too long I get stiff and almost cannot even walk. I have noticed the pain increasing as I've been on bedrest. Gotta do what I gotta do I guess! I'm hanging it there though. Smile Thanks for the responses!!

I am glad you are hanging in there. I think mine are going through a growth spurt too. I also think my baby B moved into transverse from head down on the right side as they are trying to make room. I guess I'll find out monday. I feel like they are ripping apart my muscles at the top of my belly....

Oh yay! You have an appt monday! cannot wait to see what they weigh. I basically don't need to go to my appts now cuz our pregnancies are pretty much the same. LOL! I'll let you go from now on and just go off what they tell you. Smile

I have an OB appt monday and start NST's this week.

It's hard to breathe when one is transverse across the top! Hope he moves back to head down!

I have a check up on Monday too! I will start NST's this week to, I will be scheduling my first one then! I think both of mine are still head down, although Baby A is still more active!

My baby B is the more active one. I wonder if I should drink a sugary drink before the NST to get them to wake up?? She said if they cooperate it should only take 20min. That would be nice!

I thought about that too! My doctor said it could take up to an hour - I have to take off work for them, so the faster the better!!

It'd hard to say if you've dropped or not, but you look great! Sorry to hear the bedrest is making you sore. Sad I have an appointment Monday too!! haha Mine will probably not be as exciting as you ladies though, just a boring regular check up!
