  • I have experienced the "claw their way out" feeling. Apparently it's not that common but I've spoke to others who've had that as well.

    I'm almost 36 weeks and I don't know if my baby has dropped yet. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow so she's going to tell me what station my baby is at.

  • Some babies don't even drop until a few hours before labor.

    I googled it and found this link:

  • With both of my previous pregnancies, they didnt drop until right before I went into labor. And yes, I have experienced the "claw your way out". With my son I was sure we were going to have an "Alien" type birth.

  • My babies didn't drop before labor! It doesn't mean anything if they do or don't drop
