Looks like I've dropped?

I'm 36 weeks and I've had some women tell me, "Oh wow, you look like you have dropped!" And I've had some women tell me, "Oh you've got awhile to go, you do not even look like you have dropped." So, what does it look like when you really have truly "dropped?" Or, more like, what does it feel like?

  • i honestly didnt notice it but its when the baby drops down into the birth conal, sometimes it happens and theres still a little while to go before labor happens though

  • You will have more pressure on your bladder, you'll be able to breathe better and you'll be able to eat more. My belly floated up and down in my last weeks- it would look like I'd dropped, then it'd be back up where it was. I didn't actually drop until my water broke. We had a wall length mirror that I would pass on the way to the bathroom every morning, so I'd see the difference when I'd walk by.
