I think i missed it with my son bc i was induced at 36 weeks or bc i had gained so much it wasnt noticable.... but at what time does the baby usually drop?  are there anyways to help it along so that i can breath again when sitting?  should i be concerned by a certain time if she hasnt dropped yet?

DD dropped around 37 weeks I think, at least that is when it became noticeable in pictures. She wasn't born until 39 wks 5 days though.

I am 38 weeks and 1 day and this is my second and he still hasnt dropped but they say with the second most women dont drop until the very end even when you are in labor.  With my first I dropped at about 28 weeks.

 It all depends...my earliest baby dropped the last...so really your baby can drop last minute too.  I have yet to find anything which helps dropping come along.  I have had a baby drop around 34-36 weeks (around there) and then another around 38 and another just about 40 weeks.

I am 36 weeks with my 3rd and he is still as high as can be....the top of my ribcage there is an actual pins and needles feeling from all the pressure.

I am 37 weeks and I am pretty sure mine has not dropped yet since breathing is still difficult for me.

I could never tell when that happens.
