Baby dropping and then popping back up

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Has anyone else experienced this?

 

I was 36 weeks last weekend and Saturday night I totally felt the baby drop - suddenly my belly was lower, I had a lot of cervical soreness, my pubic bone hurt, and it was uncomfortable to walk. After my initial shock, I was THRILLED to feel that the pregnancy was moving along.

 

Then this morning I woke up to an incredibly strange belly formation. It looks like my baby spun on its head while I was sleeping and floated back up out of the dropped position. Feels totally different. I'm kind of bummed.

 

I'm happy that my LO is still head down but hoping that it drops again and stays there! It's a bit uncomfortable but it was really exciting.

I feel like DS did this several times.  He would try to drop but he was so big that he would pop back up after a while.  He never truly "dropped" until I was pushing. I had to push him all the way down. 

 

This time around, I dropped at about 33-34 weeks and then just a few days ago at about 37 weeks LO turned.  Now her but is to the side rather than the front and she feels higher than she did before.
