Does it sound like I have dropped?

I am 33 weeks with my first child. I have a doctor's appointment next week so I can ask the doctor then. I am just curious. I have had family members notice that my stomach is sitting lower than before and it is protruding outward more. I don't notice the drop as much at all. If I have dropped it wasn't much at all. I am 5'2 (not sure if height has anything to do with it) I have read that some women don't notice the drop. I have noticed I get horrible round ligament pain in my groin and sharp pains in my vagina that take my breath away (it can get pretty bad). I feel the baby down towards my pelvis and some pressure but who knows. I literally feel like I have to go to the bathroom every five minutes. I still have breathing problems but that could be due to my sinus infection and I still have horrible acid reflux. Again..nothing important just was curious...

  • Sounds like you probably have dropped! I didn't notice when I dropped but everyone else did. Now I definitely notice that she's way lower, and the pressure is ridiculous! Not to mention I'm up every hour during the night running to the bathroom!

  • Yea I have some people say that they can maybe tell I have dropped and some people who don't notice a change at all. So who knows. It is definitely not fun feeling like you are going to pee yourself (especially every five minutes) I will find out next wednesday for sure though.
