    Well... I'm not sure about the dropping and then "going back up" but.. I do know a baby can drop in the breech position - but right themselves before delivery.

  • I believe once you drop they don't go that far up that you feel that much of a differeace. Also yes they will drop in breech and they could turn whan there drop. My DD was breech until I was 38 weeks and I had dropped at 36 weeks and she turned they can turn at the last minute.

    Congrats on your new LO. GL!

  • Your baby's position might be changing (and then changing again & again, lol). Once a baby truly lowers into the pelvis and is at a measurable station they will be getting ready for birth and are likely to stay, but anything could happen!    ; -)

    Is baby breech right this minute, for certain?   Whatever position, when baby moves it feels big inside, could be a foot or an elbow, head or knee...   ??

    To an observer, it could appear that baby is "low" or "high," but can have nothing to do with actuality...

  • i feel a hard spot right under my ribs, and i think that is her head, but i have a doctors appointment next friday and she will tell me if she still is breech or head down. but i feel like i can breathe a lot easier and lots of pelvic pressure. if i did drop, is 35 weeks too early? or right on time?

  • I think we say "drop" when we really notice baby lower, but it doesn't necessarily mean baby will be here this week, kwim?
    With my pregnancies, I dropped around 33 weeks, but still went past my due date with them. From watching cafemamas over the years, I see a lot of women notice this around then, too.

  • They can move around and change positions which can effect the way your belly looks. But once they move into position for labor, it's unlikely (note I didn't say it was impossible) for them to move back up.
