Hey! I'm 41 weeks pregnant and no labor signs yet. Grrrr....

I was wondering, because everyone keeps asking me, how do you know when your baby has dropped? Because people keep asking me if I have and Idk. lol. I know this may sound sily, but I don't. She still seems pretty high up there. Like when I sit,I have to lean back cause it's uncomfy. Sooo yeah....what's up mamsita's???

  • from personal experience you'll know when your baby drops! you go from having to lean back when you are stting because she feels like she is in your lungs to wanting to walk around holding your hoo-ha because you think she is going to fall out! Some babies do not drop until you go into labor though so don't get discouraged by that. hang in there momma, you are doing great! She'll be coming anytime now :)

  • I would just like to say that I couldn't do it... I couldn't be that patient to go 41 weeks. At the point that you are at your baby has prob. already dropped, but you never know. Next time you see the DR ask if she thinks that the baby has dropped.

  • Have they thought about inducing you? You may not noticed you dropped. Or she could have not dropped.

  • yeah I have thought about it and will induce AFTER 42 weeks. I'd like to give her time. I believe in doing this as naturally as possible. HOPEFULLY I'll go into labor before then because I reeeally do NOT wanna induce.

  • I looked at your pictures... Man you look great for 41 weeks! My belly is easily 2x the size of yours LOL and I'm 38 weeks. I feel like I'm gonna explode! Your belly looks the same height as yours and I know I have dropped, but you never know. Your doctor can feel around on the outside of your tummy to see where the baby's head is.
