  • You may notice your belly looking lower than it has and you may notice some very intense pelvic floor pressure that could be uncomfortable and having you may frequent trips to the potty to urinate.

    You can also ask you doctor what "station" your baby is and that can help you determine whether or not your baby has dropped. + stations indicate the baby's head is still floating. - stations indicate the baby's head is engaged.

  • Honestly, you really just wake up one day and think, wow I'm peeing a lot. Haha. Really I didn't even notice until people look at me from the other side were like, wow, that baby is LOW. You definitely won't feel or notice it happening.

  • As long as you catch them on the first bounce........ OH! I mean hehe someone else will notice before you do. I sort of remember a big discomfort out in front maybe because she was huge and my uterus is tilted forward (that's what OB says!).

  • you will know lol... your belly will be in a completely different possition. You will feel pressure in your hips or pain in your hips and vagina and like lisa bug said you will probably pee a lot more... ok I just read the above post but I could DEFFINATLY tell as soon as my baby dropped. It was very obvious for me....
