Neither of my babies ever dropped until midway through labor. 42 weeks, and 41 weeks. Everything was fine. They floated up until the very last minute. Neither of the times did my cervix begin to soften or dialate wither until labor actually started. In both births I had exams the day before labor began and the baby was still high and my cervix was still firm. Both my labors started spontaneously and my labors were completely normal and uneventful and babies were in good positions. HTH.
Oh, and with my first baby, my water broke first, on it's own while I slept, as far as I knew baby's head was not engaged before hand, though it could have become engaged that evening sometime (dr apt was that afternoon and head was still high, floating). Head ultimately engaged and no cord prolapse.
