After the baby drops, how long till labor?

I can't tell but I think my baby is getting lower and lower. Does anyone have any idea what the time table might be like till delivery? I am 26 days away...

  • My kids both dropped about a month before I had them. Maybe 3 weeks. I'm not sure. You'll know for sure that the baby has dropped though. It's a big difference! At least it was for me!

  • The baby is just getting into position. You don't have anything to worry about! Once your mucus plug falls out, you've got a couple of days before your water breaks and labor begins. But tell your doctor RIGHT AWAY if your plug comes out.

  • baby is getting settled into your pelvis... could be tonight could be 3 weeks from now. try walking a lot to get them ready and moved down further.
