Dropping or lightening

I can't remember how far along I was when my previous babies dropped but this seems really early to me.  I will be 33 weeks on Tues with our fourth baby.  My dr made a comment about him dropping at my last appt (this past wed) that my pelvic floor was no longer a floor but the basement!  All three previous deliveries have been at 39 weeks..wonder if we'll make it that far this time...So when did your babies 'drop' and what number pregnancy?

First was about 35-36 weeks, Second I dropped twice, once about 33 weeks and the second time about 36 weeks then it was pure hell when I would stand up from sitting or laying down I could feel his head pushing between my legs I would have to slowly waddle to the bathroom sit on the toilet and spread my legs as far apart as they would go and move around to get him to pop back up. It felt like I had one of those big oranges or a grapefruit in my vagina. painful. My third I dropped about 35 weeks :) my neighbors noticed right away it was a HUGE drop lol they were taking bets when I would have him, that was just before Xmas the majority vote was he would be born just before New Years. I proved em all wrong and had him Jan 5th at 37 weeks 2 days.

My babies drop early. I am 31 weeks and 4 days and my little guy dropped last week.

I don't think it has much to do with delivery date as it does with just your body and what baby wants to do

This is my first baby. I know my sister dropped right at 33 weeks. She delievered at 35 weeks. But I don't think that means anything. You can still have several weeks after the baby drops.

With my first I never noticed. I carried her so low. With my second I as in my 34 week and had her a week and half later. With my third it was around 33 weeks and had her 40w 5d.

I dropped with my first son at 35 weeks and had him at 40 weeks 1 day.

I'm 36 weeks with this baby and I still haven't dropped yet. I'm still carrying him pretty high but was recently told he's head down and very low.
