Wow! I think the baby may have dropped. The belly looks noticable lower, I can breathe a little easier. I have to pee every five minutes. I get tingling nerve pain in m labia/vagina. There is a LOT more pressure in my vagina and rectum. (sorry if it is TMI for you!) :

I am really really really ready to have this babe!

Sounds like it to me...that is how I started feeling on Thursday night. Do you also feel like your belly is harder to hold up all of a sudden? I swear, I want someone to just hold it for me for a while!: So far, no takers though.
YIPPEE!

Woo hoo! Yes, sounds like you are well on your way. I have definitely "dropped" too... I thought I had escaped the entire stretch-mark thing, but realized a week ago that they are coming in full force on the lower half of my belly. I think this has to do with the fact that all of the baby weight is now sitting on the bottom half of my belly rather than way up under my ribs. But, in regards to you post, seems like we are on the same page symptom-wise. You're ALMOST THERE!!

Summer- I have wanted to have someone hold my belly for me for about a month now, so no change there! I have my dh do it every once in a while and after a few minutes he says "wow, this is getting heavy!" I'm thinking, Yeah and I have to carry it around all the time!!!

This (the baby dropping) is very exciting for me, because my ds never did "engage", so I am wondering how much longer I have. Certainly no more than a few weeks, but I am hoping sooner!

I swear my baby dropped yesterday, and then came back up. And maybe did this trick again today. Just practicing?

Maybe, mine did the in and out of my ribs thing a few time before he finally stayed down lower.

I dropped a few weeks ago, at least, the dr said I did. Babe is well engaged (dr was surprised that his head wouldn't budge when he pushed it.) And, i feel it, it feels like his head is just rotating in circles on my cervix.
