A mum on TikTok has captured the moment that her baby bump "dropped" and it's something you need to see.
TikToker @nabby.nabs posted a video to her page and her followers simply couldn't believe what they were seeing.
"Can NOT believe I caught this," she said.
The video captured the mum's bump at 8 weeks and three days, as well as 48 hours after dropping.
Her followers were blown away, with one person commenting: "I dropped while standing in a Macy's. An older woman saw it happen and started crying because she thought it was beautiful. Scared me though lol."
While another said: "Ooohhh i remember that feeling!! Baby is coming soon... I wish you an easy labor with no pain at all.. MAY YOU SNEEZE THE BABY OUT!!"

And a third added: "I didn't know it really was a visible transition (until the obvious) this is beautiful. thank you for sharing. *not me crying*."
Meanwhile a fourth said: "I feel like that whoa was partially the drop and partially the ability to breathe a little better all of a sudden."
Dropping if often referred to as "lightening" which happens when labour is on the way.
Healthline explains it as: "It happens when the baby’s head literally “drops” lower into your pelvis, becoming engaged within your pubic bones. This starts baby’s descent down and out into the world.
"Lightening can start as early as a few weeks before labor actually begins. But for some women, it happens only a few hours before labor starts.
"Every pregnancy is different. While labor isn’t far off for some women when their baby drops, others may have weeks to go. And some never really feel their baby drop until labor officially begins."
