Did you notice when your baby "dropped"?

This is my 4th pregnancy and I've never noticed when my baby "dropped". Honestly, I can't even tell after the fact, even when people say "Oh, you look like you've dropped!"

I don't get it. Am I the only one who never notices? Lol.

  • None of my 3 did. Up to the last days my doctor would comment that they were still really high up. I had people comment that they thought I had but I think what they were really saying was, "You must have dropped, you couldn't possibly have gotten even BIGGER!" LOL

  • whittear:

    Lol. No kidding! Man, I feel that way this time around! I was commenting to my hubby last week that I feel like I must be bigger than w/ previous pregnancies. (At least, that what the sudden new stretch marks say!!) When I was in last Friday, my midwife said, "You're measuring a little big." which was nice to hear since at least it validated my feelings of being "extra large". Haha.

  • WIth my 1st and this one people have told me that I look like the baby dropped. They say its not a huge difference though. People who don't know me say that the baby still looks really high. I am short though and both my babies were really low but really high at the same time. lol They have no where to drop!

  • I noticed with my first; I was looking in the mirror one morning and noticed that my boobs weren't resting right on top of my stomach. But my second never did until labor.

  • No, you are not alone! I never noticed when I dropped. People told me lol....I was huge anyway, so it was really hard for me to tell when.

  • None of my babies dropped. My first did when I was in the delivery room, my 2nd and 3rd were c-sections and never did.

  • You know what's really funny? The DAY after I posted this question, my baby dropped. And it was obvious. LOL.

    I wonder if I post a question asking if I'm ever going to have this baby....if my baby will come tomorrow. Hmm.....
