I'm a first-timer, so I was wondering if anyone can tell me...
Yesterday, I felt "something" happen. Over a short period of time, it became quite painful in my lower back (I haven't really had any back pain until this point
). I felt very uncomfortable walking and standing, although if I sat just right, it felt okay (it doesn't hurt as bad today). Later I noticed that it looks like my belly is lower than it was before.
I searched the internet and looked through some books I have, but didn't find a whole lot. I read that when baby drops I might feel like I can breathe better (which I can) and that I may have to pee more (which I definately noticed yesterday).
But everything I've read said that it usually doesn't happen until 2 to 4 weeks before delivery and I'm 6 weeks out from my due date. Could this be the baby dropping or is it just loosening joints or nothing at all?
Thanks for any help.
