Another baby question. :)

Also, how do you know your baby has dropped? Because mine is putting A LOT more pressure down there and I can breath better but I can still feel him a bit in my ribs when I am sitting and laying down. But I know I felt it him kind of slip down this past Saturday at 2 a.m. and all of a sudden I could breath but I about peed my pants at the same time. LOL But I still feel crowded. I am pretty sure he dropped. Any idea? Your answers have helped me a ton! Thank you.

  • I could never tell when my girls dropped. My husband said once they looked low, and then a couple weeks later he said it looked like they had moved back up.
