Does baby HAVE to drop, or can you go into labor before/without baby dropping?

Just curious if baby always drops before labor? 35weeks here.

  • No, babies don't *have* to drop prior to labor. The baby will eventually descend into the birth canal. For some moms it might be at 33 weeks and for others at 43 weeks... could be anytime!
