Has your baby "dropped" yet? - Page 2

post #21 of 27
Mine is definitely lower, I got lots of odd pains a few nights ago, and when I woke up is when this really bad pelvic pressure/bowling ball in between the legs stuff started. Then later that day my mom said, "Wow, your belly is low!" It's funny because I carry really low anyway, I remember with ds looking at myself after he'd dropped and thinking holy cow b/c it just sags soooo low, and now this one is in the same position, big 'ole saggy belly. I don't know if she's dropped/engaged, but she's definitely a lot lower and making me quite uncomfortable! Often times I can't even sit up straight b/c she's right there and in the way, I have to at least partially recline to not be in pain or feel like I'm squishing her head. Talk about an odd feeling! lol

I don't think I've dropped yet... I still have a hard time with breathing sometimes and I haven't noticed any significant changes in the baby looking lower or anything. But I'm pretty short and this is my fifth baby, so I don't know if I'll notice any drop or anything, besides being easier to breathe.

Wow interesting! Would you mind describing it? I'm curious to know what that would be like.

It's fun when we notice the moment something happens (Off topic but it made me think of when my water suddenly broke in the kitchen. It began with a big old *KICK* so we joke that he broke his own water)

NO :::: I want my reflux to go away.

I dropped roughly a month before ds was born and I didn't know it at the time. I actually thought I was going into labor for a bit lol. It was this intense cramping sensation that took my breath away and I Had to sit down for a bit. Just really intense bam bam bam feeling on my whole abdominal area, and then it went away. Then the next day my co workers said I had dropped and I was lower than the day before. I did notice I could breath easier and eat easier.

I was sitting in a meeting with a patient, his family, a social worker, and two MDs. It was long and I'd been sitting in the same position for about an hour. The baby had been squirming through nearly the whole meeting (it was after lunch) and when I went to stand up the baby slipped into my pelvis. I completely peed my scrubs. From that point on I had to pee constantly, had intense pelvic pressure and felt kicks much lower in my upper abdomen. It's like I felt my baby slide down. So weird...

I like how you noticed your water breaking. I never noticed mine breaking in labor. When I got to the hospital, I tried to refuse the internal fetal monitor on the grounds that my water wasn't broken yet. The nurse said "Oh honey. Your water is WAY gone." I still don't know when it broke or what it felt like for that matter.

I don't know if he's dropped yet, but I've had a deffinant need to waddle all evening, and even a few days ago at work. I feel like my hips are splitting apart. I hope this means I'll go into labor on my own and my doc will sthu about inductions and c-sections. Here's to happy, ripe cervix power!
