  • you will know when you feel like you can't put your legs together. you will feel a lot of pressure on your bottom. you will be more uncomfortable than before.

  • I'm 31 weeks and my baby has already dropped. I could only tell, because my belly isn't as close to my boobs, I can also once again see my ribs, breathing is a bit easier, and a lot more pressure on my bladder. Since she has dropped, she has caused me to fly to the bathroom (she uses it now as a constant punching bag), to find that I really don't need to go. But she's still just as active and if this wasn't my fourth child, I probably wouldn't know how to tell that either.

  • I noticed it when I would put my hand on my belly ect that it felt different, in a different place.
