Is dropping a sudden thing or can it happen over a few days? Everyone has told me "it happens overnight!" & that I'll wake up one day being able to breath better with my stomach much lower. However, I've noticed yesterday & today that my stomach is looking slightly lower, today his kicks have seems a little lower & not as powerful, but it's still a little difficult to breath. Does this sound like dropping (I'm 35weeks), or did he just shift?

  • Some baby just drop into position, some work on it over several days. I think baby is taking his time in dropping down.

  • I didn't notice dropping very suddenly. It could be.

  • Sounds like you have dropped, you also know you've dropped when the doctor can tell the baby is in place, meaning the head is in your cervix.

  • Well he's been head down for weeks now, wouldn't he have already been in position? Or was there more way down than just facing that way??
