i'm almost 37 weeks and today my fundal hght was on 35. last week it was 35.5. i feel like there is no more room for it to go, and i usually deliver around 37 weeks. the mw didn't mention a problem, but why would my measurements go down? Does anyone know? Thanks.

Totally normal. It's probably because baby is dropping lower in the pelvis. Fundal height stops correlating with weeks at term and women often start to lose weight rather than gain just before delivery.
