(ds#1 never dropped)

I'm pretty sure my baby dropped today and I'm having lots of pressure/cramps. is that normal?

I really dunno. Second baby, but I couln't tell you when the first one dropped.

More pressure down there probably is a good sign, however. I've had pressure the whole time, so I wouldn't know this time either...I must be weird.

Mom to two boys, ages 8 and 11, and one blessing due May 8th.

:LOL

yep I'm pretty sure he/she has dropped as the kicks are lower now (not getting kicked in the ribs so much) and I have to pee every 5 minutes now too.

I thought a week ago I might have dropped, too, but it turned out that baby just sent head down and is getting READY to drop. When you drop? It LITERALLY feels like you are walking with a bowling ball in your pelvis. When you've dropped, there will be no doubt because of that bowling ball sensation.

I somehow managed to forget that last week but I do remember that now.

Well I am pretty sure this little guy has dropped. I have trouble sleeping at night because my hips hurt. I felt like I was waddling the other day and my belly looks lower. I had a total stranger ask me yesterday if I always carry this low, or if the baby dropped. Another friend told me the same thing the other day and she had seen me the week before.

However I don't have the bowling ball in the crotch feeling, unless I do to much then my abdomen hurts.
