when the baby "drops".
My stomach is very low now & there is alot of pressure. Its not really painful, but just pressure.
Sometimes though it will feel like my stomach is ripping... but its only if im moving around alot.. Like cleaning ect...

Can you tell when the baby drops? i will be 35 weeks on tuesday.

  • When your belly is lower than just under your boobs then the baby is dropping. That is the only way to tell.

  • My belly has been low the whole pregnancy, so the person who said anything lower than under your breasts means it's dropped is wrong..
    Although, i haven't felt the baby drop at all, and I'm 34 weeks... I think it drops when you start to have trouble walking.. cuz it's head is deep in your pelvis. I can't wait til I start to waddle.. :P
