  • when my son dropped, i was laying down on my side reading, all of sudden, im talking mere seconds, it felt like i was trying to pee out a bowling ball without even trying. And when i got up (didnt know what the heck had happened) i felt so much weight that it felt weird to walk with my legs i looked like i was either a cowgirl or i had bowed legs haha.

  • oh..and what to expect after that? Well..that depends on the person, you should be expecting to loose your mucus plug soon, if not bits and pieces already, they say when a baby drops (in the third trimester) you can expect for baby to arrive in one to two weeks, but obiviously thats not always true, depends on the woman, i dropped and then gave birth about a week and a half after that

  • i knew when none of my maternity clothes would stay up anymore. I was constantly pulling my pants up all the time. One day I had my hands full and i couldnt grab them while walking on my porch. Sure enought my pants dropped lol...I was in my last month so i refused to pay money to buy more.

  • All of a sudden I could breathe, and it felt like I had a lot of pressure down below. I went like that for another 6wks though, so it depends on the person how long it will be for you to go in labor.
