The baby hasn't dropped yet..when did yours?

Did you drop well before you had your baby or was it after going into labor? I have read that both can happen. Just trying to see what's more the average.

  • Anytime is normal, and none of it is indicative of when you'll go into labor. I didn't drop until my water broke.

  • My belly dropped the week before I had my son, with my current pregnancy I have days where it seems to have dropped then days where it seems to be back up again!

  • My baby dropped when I was about 32 weeks. I had her about 6 or 7 weeks later. Both can happen. It's more likely for a first baby to drop before labor, and subsequent children to drop right around the beginning of labor.
