how long after?

hi all
I'm going into my 37 week and I was just wondering how long after your stomach drops before you go into labour or is it different for all?

  • Different for all and first time mom's babies TEND to drop a few weeks before labor begins, but to reiterate: all are different.

  • my litle irl started dropping at about 35 weeks i was induced at 39 weeks lol
    had to be my son almost got stuck so my dr didnt want to risk it
    which was a good thing because if my daughter would had gone the same tiem as my son did she would had been alot bigger
    my son was 8 lbs 14 oz at 40 weeks 5 days
    and my daughter was 8 lbs 9 oz at 39 weeks exactly
    so she most likely would had got stuck

  • I dropped at 35 weeks, and here I am at 37 weeks, still very much pregnant! So it varies with each :) Almost there though, just keep waiting!!! Lol I feel like with this baby all I've been doing is hurrying up to wait :)

  • With your first I read it could be a few weeks before you go into labor and if its your second and so on it could be the day all depends though. I am pregnant with my second and I dropped last week and even more yesterday, I mean she is wayyyy low, I am still pregnant lol.
