  • babys drop earlie as 29 weeks,
    it doesnt mean your going into labor soon.

    Besides the heartburn getting better and having to pee more, your tummy will look a lot lower. Plus, you may feel a lot more pelvic pressure.

  • Most woman feel more pressure down below and can breathe easier, and oftentimes your belly is visibly lower. Some women drop several weeks before they deliver, others (like me) don't drop until baby is coming out. It really doesn't mean much, sorry. :)

  • The baby drops usually near the end of the 3rd trimester. It does NOT mean the baby is coming. My dd dropped and was engaged 4 weeks before she actually came..and she was overdue!
