Can the baby have dropped already?

I am 32 weeks pg with my second child and have been having A LOT of continuous pelvic pressure/discomfort within the last week. I have had more than one person (strangers even!) tell me that I look like I've "dropped" already. I honestly don't remember how it looked/felt when my first baby dropped, so I feel like a fool staring at my belly in the it possible the baby really has dropped? I thought it didn't usually happen in 2nd pregnancies until labor was imminent?

  • I'm not real sure about second pregnancies but I have always been told that if you can put your hand under )_( your breasts and it be flat you have completely dropped
