  • Doesn't mean anything really. Every pregnancy is different, but your baby dropping is just your baby getting head down and in position for the birthing process. My first child dropped around 33 weeks, second child dropped around 35 weeks, and I am pregnant with my third and I began dropping at 30 weeks.. am 35w2d and still pregnant, lol.

  • nooooo, well maybe. My baby dropped at like 30 some odd weeks, it just means your baby is gettin ready and is locked in (sorta) head down. Still could be 5 weeks...could be 4 days. it really means nothing.

  • I think it means you are getting closer to going into labor but like the others said, it doesn't mean right away.

  • It really doesn't mean much. I dropped in the beginning of June and had my son July 4.
