This baby feels like it could fall out of me!

Did anyone else have a baby sit so low? For how long?

My doctor was really surprised the baby was so low but my dilation hasn't changed. 8(

Yes.  DS dropped and was sitting right at the opening for 2 weeks before I went into labor.  I never even progressed to a full 2 though... ended up having a CS :-(

Oh no! I'm sorry. I guess I'm not really worried about a CS because this is number 4 for me. I have what my doctor likes to call a 'proven pelvis'. Anyway, my boys I kind of had the opposite thing happen, I was dilated to 3 1/2 for a month. 8^/

I was 2 cm and +3 last weeks and then 3 days ago I was 3cm and still +3 and then 12 hours later I was 10 cm and -2. I think your close especially if this is not your first! They don't drop till your labor starts usually.

*Hugs* I know the feeling as I was stuck at 4cm for 3 weeks. Every false labor got me soo excited. And you would of thought labor would have been easier or quicker since I started at 4 and 100% effaced. Nope, longer and a thousand times more painful than my first! Hope you aren't too uncomfortable :)

Oh no! I just told my husband that at least labor should go quickly because of how far down she was!

Would swimming make the pressure go away for a little bit, or is it to late for swimming?

We didn't put up our pool this year. 8( I think she's just too far down for any of that to help. It hurts to raise my legs at all, even just to get in the tub. Her head is rightthere. blah I hope she doesn't end up with a weird shaped head! HAHAHAHA

I was at 4cm and stage 0 for 10 days. I don't want to but your bubble but you could be stuck like that for hours or days. Good lick
