I'm 35ish weeks and the baby seems to have engaged a little. Anyone else?
Anyone else's baby dropped a little lower?
DD woke me up one night last weekend and I could barely walk, I felt like the baby was ready to fall out! I would have been seriously concerned if I had any contractions at the time. Went back to bed and changed positions and the baby had moved by morning, but I definitely feel more pressure really low in my pelvis. I'm coming up on 33 weeks on Monday, but at my US last week baby was already measuring 36 weeks along. I think I feel it every time the baby moves it's head, lol.
DD never "engaged" until I was pretty far into labor, so I never had that walking around feeling like a baby was about to fall out sensation at the end. I think this baby is lower, he's definitely been head down for weeks now which is also different than DD, but I still don't have that really low and engaged feeling even at 35 weeks! I'm hoping he does lock in soon so that he's in better position than DD was for birth (she was right side, posterior, asynclitic...pretty much the worst position besides Frank Breech!).
I've dropped and this one is getting ready...a bit early as I'm 32 weeks here. Yesterday I had tons of contractions (while playing a rehearsal and gig thank you so much kid!) and I was like - great. Here we go with the early labor. Today it hasn't been as bad. As a result, I'm washing all of the baby baby stuff and getting it organized today/tomorrow.
Just had my prenatal with the midwife this morning-baby is low but not as terribly so today, so I am peeing easier! I've been having some contractions here and there. I'm thinking I may have another pre-due date baby. I've had a long conversation with this little one explaining no labor till at least after 37 weeks.
Thanks for the input-I'm not alone!
35 weeks here, and this baby is super low, and has been for a while. Her brother was like that as well. I don't know if there is a connection, but I also dilated early with him without actually being in labor. I'm wondering if the pressure of her head on my cervix will have the same result this time.
