  • lol "better" gets replaced with many more trips to the toilet, hehe

    Babies seem to drop somewhere in the third trimester but not to be confused with "dropping" as in descending into the pelvis, into a deep station necessarily. It can just be babies position that adjusts and can feel very different.

    I'd say about 33 weeks with my pregnancies was when I started to feel lighter.

    Good luck!

  • DD dropped when I was 31 or 32 weeks. I felt worse when she dropped, but all my friends and family said they felt better. Some babies don't drop until right before labor, some drop really early. It varies.
