No i don't think you've dropped... it may be that the baby is in a different position and it's causing you more pressure.

I dropped early around 27-28 weeks and I went into labor at 29 weeks.  But they stopped it because I came in early enough...but I think you have nothing to worry about

it doesnt look like youve dropped to me either. I got major pressure in my lower regions around 25 weeks and it was so bad I couldnt walk but, the dr said everything was fine and in fact my LO is way up high.

Looks about the same to me also. usually you don't start dropping till the end of pregnancy approx 32ish weeks.

thats what im hoping and thinking that it is just movement of the baby causing the pressure..the nurse made me a lil nervous though ..... even though my daughter is just 13  months i cant even tell when something is off or odd because past 2 were different from this 1 and eachother... so i feel like its my first pregnancy with my all my lil concerns..lol

You didnt drop yet, you'll know!!

With both my pregnancies I carried low the whole time, and last time I made it to almost 38 weeks, so yeah its possible. I was also dilated from 19 weeks on with her... none of that stuff is a sign he/she's coming soon, as much as we might want it to towards the end.

I'm a 24 year old, *single* mom, to a 13 month old princess, and a prince on the way. I'm 32 weeks pregnant, I've had previa, abruption, gall bladder surgery, kidney stones, preterm labor and have been passing out, but this little boy is worth it all. I've been through postpartum depression, domestic violence, my parents divorce, losing my job & becoming poor, losing my car, and my license, and becoming a single mom... all in the last year and I'm still glad to be here!!


I *LOVE* my kids more than anything else on this planet!

When I dropped my belly was sitting in my lap.  It was noticeably low.  Yours doesn't look that low, just like the baby might have changed position.  It's a minor difference.  Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!!!
