Has your baby "dropped" yet? - Page 2

post #21 of 24

I am thinking my LO has dropped now that he decided to go head down.  All day today (especially if I am sitting) I have felt a definite increase of pressure in my pelvis.  Not exactly painful, more uncomfortable, makes me feel like I need to stretch out.

 

It seems like he isn't moving around as much either...is that normal when they drop??

 

Jees, pregnancy makes me paranoid.

Mine doesn't move around much these days, except to grind a shoulder into my hip and wiggle in there further! If I get worried I have some sugar (juice), lay down on my left until bub starts moving and usually that helps! LO seems to be down to just a few active times during the day, but hb was good and steady at the last appt and I was told decreased movement is definitely normal at this stage!

 

Possibly arms and legs are facing the placenta now depending on where it is, so it's possible you'd feel less movement in that case too I would think. This happened to me when LO turned with back to my left as the placenta seems to be on the right (at least that's where I hear the blood pumping the loudest through a stethoscope)

This is me too. I get a little worried that the LO is not moving enough, and seems to be a bit more still during the day.  At night time the babe is wedging down even further, and I get the feeling that he/she stretches out with a few (much less than before) kicks and punches.  All normal and all good, HB is strong and my instincts tell me loud and clear that this LO is happy and healthy as all get out in there.  Sometimes I do the juice thing too if I'm needing some affirmation.
