  • I went in to labor without ever dropping with my first. I haven't dropped with this one either. No idea how they can "make" you drop. I think you just have to push harder/longer as the baby hasn't cut out some of the work for you :)

  • I hadn't dropped with either of mine. I think it usually just makes for a longer labor, but the contractions will help work him/her down, then when your water breaks that helps bring him/her out least it did with my experiences.

  • i just had my baby on the 20th and I was a full 10cm and she still hadn't dropped all the way and it just took a lot of extra pushing but she came

  • Some woman do not drop until after water breaks in that case they will have you do exercises to help baby drop!!!

  • its been 9 years since i have had a baby and i am expecting next month, but i do know from watching birth-day on discovery health channel that most babies are stubborn and dont want to come out, so i would guess if your baby doesnt drop on his/ her own then you'll have to more than likely push harder and longer
