  • Shit you may have a few more weeks. I dropped at around 37-39 and I new it when it happened. I had just worked a 9 1/2 hour day on my feet.

  • When they are ready to! My first did not drop and was actually breech until 11 days before his due date and I had him the next day. He turned and dropped while I was eating dinner and I looked at DH and said OMG I can breathe!!!! He just laughed at me. I don't remember my second dropping much before labor either, but she wasn't breech so it wasn't as bad.

  • i have the same question... lol, with my first pregnancy i did not drop at all, and last night i was making my bed and all of a sudden i could breathe and i litterally felt her head hit my pelvic bone and i am 31 weeks. so i guess it could happen at anytime.

  • I have two babies and neither of them dropped before labor!
