  • it can be either way. I didn't drop very much until I was in labor. I do remember dropping a little cuz suddenly I had boobs and a stomach again instead of just them together.

  • Mine was a BAM. I forgot I was pregnant one day, and went running (yes, running at 39wks) after a teacher. Within 1 minute I had so much pressure in my pelvis, I had to lie down the rest of the day. Definitely a quick drop for me.

  • Mine was BAM too! I got up at 430 the other morning about a week ago, and was throwing up really bad (I was squatting on the floor), then after about 15 minutes of vomiting I tried to stand up and she had dropped! I was like OMG! lol, i guess all the muscles squeezing her made her drop down. Idk. But she has dropped even lower now, and it is SO painful....ugh...Oh im 36 wks.

  • Mine didn't drop until my water broke (chicken or egg, you decide). I woke up to my water broken and my belly low. I had a few dropping "false alarms" first, though, where it would look lower, and then somehow, it would go back up! It was kind of disheartening!
