  • If it feels like it, then it probably has dropped. It doesn't have any correlation with going into labor though. Dont wish for that yet! lol... Hopefully you get to at least 38 weeks... Good luck girl! :)

  • I never felt my baby drop. My obgyn said it might have happened when i was sleeping b/c i slept on my side. I woke up and my stomach was lower. lol

  • It'll look lower. I thought I dropped a couple of times, then somehow, my tummy gravitated north again. It didn't actually end up dropping until my water broke. I woke up, and walked past a mirror on the way to the bathroom, and my belly was pretty low. You'll also feel more pressure in your pelvis.
