i am 4 months pregnent with my second child. i had been putting on weight and seemed to have a fairly big tummy size, however over the weekend my tummy has drastically decreased. i'm really worried........is this normal??........has the baby stopped growing?........any suggestions please!!!

You may very well be dehydrated. Drink up on some water and lots of it ... that will help

Or it could be that the baby just shifted in his position.

Maybe you have been bloated up until this point and you no longer are? Also, not sure if this applies to your situation but my belly is always smaller in the morning when I wake up compared to evenings. They say that's b/c all the fluid in your body spreads out while you sleep (which makes sense), but acc_mulates as the day goes on in your lower extremities (including your belly). Hope all is well, and I wouldn't hesitate to call your dr. w/ your question. They get Qs like this all the time and it will ease your mind.

I'm 5 months and the same thing happened to me a couple weeks ago. Like Ceno said its probably just that the baby changed positions, that's what my doctor told me... and I know cuz now she kicks my ribs instead of my bladder. It's nothing to be concerned about, however you may want to contact your physician just to be on the safe side :) Good luck!
