Pregnancy issues

I'm 34 weeks pregnant due on the 1st of May and so far doing fine except for abdominal pains now and then. I have noticed something unusual lately my stomach is getting smaller and getting lower than before. Is it something I should be worried about or is it something that is bound to happen at this stage?

Desperately need your help.

It is probably the head that has engaged. This is called lightening and is quite normal.

It is normal for your stomach to be lower closer to the birth date. It is baby going down.
