At my 31 week check up my fundal height was 33 weeks

Hi Alex,
At my 31 week check up my fundal height was 33 weeks. 3 days short of being 33 weeks I think my baby has dropped and is side on as I can breathe easier, going to the toilet more and have felt like a sharp pain which could possibly be on my pelvic floor/ cervix when I go for a walk. Is there a chance that the baby is progressing a little earlier and therefore may be born before the due date or could the baby just stay this way for another 7 weeks?
Thanks
Alyssa

Answer: Hi Alyssa, Thank you for your enquiry. Your baby could be getting in the right position for the birth but the best indication as to when it will be born is your dates. Most babies are born around 40 weeks and this is the best time for them to be born. A baby born too early can have problems associated with immaturity. Best wishes, Alex
