  • Yes! Some never drop but stay low the entire pregnancy. :D My first born was LOW the whole time. My second born dropped very early. My third didn't drop until it was time to deliver. :D They are all so different.

  • Belly dropping does not always mean the baby's head or butt is engaged to the pelvis (depending on the position baby is) it can also be that your baby is now bigger and the weight of him or her is pulling your uterus lower making it looked like you dropped. I thought I had dropped as well but I didn' just got bigger :)
