I can't quite figure out if the baby's dropped. Last night I know breathing was a little bit of a chore, but not so much today.
Last week and Today

Dh is out of town for work today, and I doubt my toddler really noticed anything, so I don't really have anybody to look at me in person and judge.

So what do you think?

TIA!

It does look possible, but it could always just be a change in the baby's position. This little guy dropped around 34 weeks (confirmed by MW)...but here I am 38w1d and probably not having him for awhile Supposedly subsequent babies can drop anytime before or during labor, so much for helpful signs, right??

No kidding!
It's driving me nuts, especially with the added bonus of worrying if I'm a month ahead of where I originally thought I was. Ugh. I miss the ignorant blissfulness of ds's pregnancy.

Syddo dropped around 34 weeks too; she's my first. Obviously she's a genius. Knows right where to go! We have an understanding that she is comming no sooner than her due date, however, so here we are at week 37 with her big baby head right down in my pelvis. I think she just needed some more room and moved down, which is alright by me... better down than sideways!

I think you do look a bit lower now. But I'm no expert - I've never been able to notice when I've dropped.

looks like it to me! mine has progresively moved down and down and down.... each time my co-workers see me-- once every other week or so-- they say I look lower.

Could be....

Yeah, I think mine is moving progressively down. I felt horrible pain in my koochie and had trouble walking around the 34th week, and I think I've adjusted to him at that stage. And then recently he feels like he's been sitting on my colon too. So I think it can happen gradually.

But this is my first so what do I know.
