  • when my dd dropped everyone noticed. they said it looked like she had dropped about 4 inches. it was suddenly easier to breath and i had to pee a lot more often.

  • When this baby dropped I had to walk with my legs apart because she dropped so far.. Usually you can tell by your belly it will go really really low to where you can pretty much rest your arms on it. lol.

  • With my first baby I couldnt tell at all. I found out when I went in for a check up.

  • But normally like the others said.. its noticeable. And you might have to pee more often, or it will be easier to breath all of a sudden. But some people dont notice anything different at all.

  • i didn't notice with my son. my rib pain did ease up around 37 weeks, so i think maybe he "dropped" then. some people can really tell by how they look, others can really tell by how they feel, like easier to breathe or more pelvic pressure.
