  • trust me you'd feel it, the first time it felt like he was going to fall out and i was bruised in my thighs the second time it didn't hurt that bad but made me walk like a duck the rest of the term.

  • I knew the baby had dropped because I could suddenly breathe again!

  • I had this like.. Empty space in the top of my stomach, and the bottom was super tight, I had to basically waddle everywhere. But I could eat and breath better, and Heartburn went away. ohh so nice. =)

  • I never felt my baby drop. I could only tell by the way my belly was looking. It wasn't as high, and it dropped a lot!
