Just for fun and curiosity. This lil guy has dropped. With my second kid, my son, he dropped at 35 weeks and came 4 weeks later. I'm 33 weeks with this lil guy. So what has your experience been?

I carry low, and have always been considered to have "dropped" no later than 30 weeks with no issues carrying to term.

My first and 2nd were the only one's to really "drop" and it was still weeks after they did.

1st dropped during labor. I never noticed but my midwife did. My second dropped a week and half before she came. My third dropped 8 weeks before she came. She was also my first to come after her estimated due date.

I've dropped while in labor, and I've dropped almost nine weeks before having my baby before too.

I don't think it always correlates with labor. I dropped with #1 & 2 at around 26 weeks, and this time at 19 weeks, baby is head down fully engaged & stayed that way... and no preemie births.
