  • I am 35 weeks pregnant and today was wondering the same thing!!! LOL I never noticed with my first pregnancy. But today for some reason I felt like maybe the baby had dropped because I was feeling so much pressure and using the restroom so much but who knows!!

  • I feel more pressure on my bladder ALOT MORE, so Im constantly in the restroom. My mom puts her hand under my breast and above my tummy and decides that way... She should know, she had 5 kids!

  • the other day about lunchtime I all of a sudden looked like I was about 6 months instead of 9, and i felt flab at the bottom instead of baby (FLAB!!! AHHHH!!!). I am assuming that is when I dropped, bc the dr siad his head is right there.....this is my 4th and i have never noticed before

  • Lol well I think mine dropped, not sure so I'm in the same boat as you. I still get kicked in the ribs but my baby is wayyyy down low and at my drs. appt. a couple weeks ago I measured a little smaller....which I think can be a sign. Oh and I have too pee every 10 minutes. I'm 36w3d.
