How will I know when my little man goes head down? And how will I know when he's dropped?

  • You won't know his position without having your doc/midwife feel for his position. As for when you drop, your belly will become noticeably lower. For me, it wasn't until my water broke that I dropped, so don't let it get you down if you don't drop earlier.

  • I knew when my kids were head down cuz I could feel it in my pelvis, but PP is right - your doc/midwife will be the best place to know for sure. And dropping - you will know cuz you will be able to breathe better :) lol When my kids dropped it was the most amazing thing to go up a flight of stairs or something and actually be able to breathe again!!

  • You most certainly can feel what position your baby is in!

    try to learn how! If you have a midwife have her show you how as well. Midwives really now more about this then OB's.
