  • I never felt or saw my baby drop. LOL And labor was easy, so, not all women do that.

  • I never felt or saw anything. I didn't even drop until I was in labor either.

  • w/ my first i never "dropped" but w/ this pregnancy it was soooo very obvious. it was like my stomach shifted down 3-5 inches!

  • I never dropped with my first. Not even during labor. I have noticed it in friends but don't remember how far along they were.

  • You can look and tell when your baby drops most of the time. It looks like your carrying lower. My son did drop when I was pregnant with him, though I don't remember how far along I was (believe it was right before having him).

  • Yep At some point the baby moves into place for delivery. I didn't see or feel it. Some Friends told me it will affect the way you walk more of the waddle come on!

  • My first pregnancy I never dropped. With DS, I was sitting at work and all of the sudden I feel this "flop" and I could suddenly breathe again! I'm short so my babies are ALL up in my rib cage early. It was a very strange feeling!

  • i dropped with both my boys around 71/2 months and thank god my boobs were no longer sitting on my tummy and i was able to breathe better except all the pressure on my bladder but every women is different and so is every pregnancy
