  • YOu never know when it will kick it. Just because the baby is dropping doesn't mean labor will start soon. Some babies drop early and some wait until the day labor kicks in. My daughter started dropping around 35 to 36 weeks and I had her at 39 weeks and 1 day. Braxton hicks are just there to help your body prepare for the real deal.
