Belly dropped at 26 weeks

This is my second child but for the life of me I can't remember how soon it was that my belly dropped with my first son. I went into pre-labor just the other day and had to get that wonderful shot that makes you feel like you're on speed lol. Well my contractions calmed down and things have for the most part been normal but myself, my husband and my mom have noticed my belly has dropped just within the past day. Is this normal at 26 weeks or because of the pre-labor? Pre-labor happened to me around the same time with my first son, and once again with him at 31 weeks.. then he ended up coming a week late after being induced. I don't remember my belly dropping after the first pre-labor with him though. Should I be concerned? I see my doctor on Thursday anyway.

I don't know, bump. I didn't drop until after 38 weeks approx and delivered a week later.  I also didn't notice it when it happened, only noticed later in pics.

You're not supposed to drop until very close to the end.

I dropped early with all of my kids, before 30 weeks. My last one was HORRIBLE. He dropped soooo low, and walking, closing my legs, etc., hurt sooo bad! I spent my last few weeks in hot baths lol.

oh no that doesn't sound fun=( I guess I lucked out a little cause I started feeling him in my ribs but don't think I have to worry about that now!

I went Into preterm labor due to kidney stones at 26 weeks with dd1 and dropped at about 27. Could be that. I don't know. I just know it made the last part if my pregnancy very rough. I felt like I always had this horrible pressure and couldn't cross my legs

Both my babies dropped around 28 weeks and remained low and in position. I was also in pre-term labor and dilated 2cm by then. Luckily bedrest helped and I delivered at 35 and 37 weeks.
