  • Once the baby has dropped you'll feel presure in you pelvis, not your lungs. Try laying on your side or sitting up straight.

  • You usually feel relief on your ribs and lungs when the baby drops down. The baby probably is pushing up against your ribs because of limited room he/she has at the end of the pregnancy. I could sometimes get my son to move out of my ribs if I lighly patted on my belly.

  • no baby hasnt dropped yet. youll know when he has dropped when you feel pressure in your pelvis and feel a bit "free-er" in your chest area. and yes boobs normally hurt

  • Your baby is probably pushing his/her legs up into your lung area. Your breasts probably hurt because they are producing for your soon to be. Try laying on your left side. I hope you have the baby soon so your discomfort is gone. I know the last month is th elongest month ever!
