  • for me its felt like a lot of pressure, and now at the start of my ninth month, pain. I waddle all over the place and I go to the bathroom seems like every 2 1/2 hours

  • I felt that way with both of my pregnancies it depended on where my lo's where laying what helped if I couldn't pee was lift my tummy and stand up and do a little dance and then try to go pee again my OB told me to do that and surprisingly it worked, G/L :)

  • you can see it visually... but when the baby drops it increases the pelvic pressure and braxton hicks you get to enjoy! Good luck.

  • I could breath and eat a full meal! LOL I never felt much pressure so to say like I read about on here. The main sign for me was being able to breath more easily again, then confirmed at a dr appointment when I started getting checked for dialation

  • Sometimes other people will notice the baby "drop" before you do. For you, you might feel some relief from heartburn and breathing is easier, and an increase in pressure on your bladder, but these might be quite subtle and someone else will see it before you even realize it's happened! :)
