This is my second and I dropped last week, about 35 weeks. Maybe not fully "boiling ball between the legs" dropped, but "holy wow my belly is low, my bladder is smashed, suddenly my middle back is killing me but at least the heart-burn is gone" kind of dropping. My first, who was a FTP CS after 70 hours of labor never dropped even a little, so even though annoying I am taking all the signs my body is doing the right thing this time as reasons to celebrate!
I too was under the impression that the VAST majority of 2nd babies don't drop til labor is imminent, which gave me quite the head trip worrying if he/she would come early and surprise me.
