  • I never noticed my baby dropping. Some people do and some dont. But it can come at anytime, and it could take up until you go into labor.

  • You will know cause you can breath! Finally! You will also feel like the baby is in your hips and not your ribs.

  • I had my daughter 2 days before her due date and to be quite honest she didn't drop!

  • I woke up a little after 37 weeks and went "whoa! baby dropped!" lol. But she was super high so it was really noticeable. This time i don't know if i will because he has been so low all along.

  • Mine has been like gradually dropping since 34-35 weeks. But he didnt just get down all at once.

  • If you don't notice it everyone around you probably will. At least that is how it worked with me. I was unsure the morning my DD dropped. I knew I could breathe better, but thought maybe she had just changed position until my dh looked at me and said, "damn what's wrong with your belly." When I looked in the mirror my belly was a lot lower. That whole day everyone kept making comments about it. I was about 33 weeks. I understand not all women have such a drastic drop, but man mine was...LOL
    BTW: My mom told me that my sister didn't drop until 10 minutes before she was delivered.
