How long after baby drops can expect labor? Just curious.

There is no way of know. Some drop weeks before baby comes, some a week, some days, some that day and some during labor.

My first I never noticed but my midwife did during labor. My second a week and half later after baby dropped I had her. My third I dropped 8 weeks before I had it.

My first dropped around 34 weeks, I had him at 40w2d. My second never dropped. She was at -4 station when I was in active labor with her. 

Baby dropping doesn't really have anything to do with when labor will begin.

  It's different for everyone. My son stayed in another 4 weeks after he dropped.
