  • when a baby"drops" it just means that baby has moved down into position to be born. you still have a few weeks ahead of you though. best wishes

  • My first dropped 3 times in the last month or two, and I never went into labor. It's simply a change of position, making it easier for them to get through the birth canal; it has nothing to do with when you go into labor.

  • It's the baby getting into position, not a myth, ask your doctor.
