  • Well the "drop" could happen gradually during the weeks before full term... I'm not a physician, so I say consult one, or a medical journal.. or even just call your mom or somethin... good luck... Happy Holidays.!.

  • There is no telling when you will go into labor even after you drop. If this is your first child then it could be anytime in the next month or so. Most women on their second (or subsequent) babies don't drop until they are right about to go into labor.

  • I can't speak for everyone but I know in my case, around 30 weeks I went through a major growth spurt. So, everyone was saying I dropped, but it was just that my belly was getting HUGE. When I dropped, I had trouble walking, my back and hips hurt a lot more, I felt lots of pressure and had to pee a lot more often. But of course, everyone is different.
