I think usually you will just feel like baby is lower or have more pelvic pressure. I have never been able to tell myself. I have always had someone else tell me I looked lower.

I just felt a lot more pressure down below, and a little less pressure above. Had a little less shortness of breath, less heartburn, and was able to eat more without getting uncomfortable. When I look back at my pictures we took weekly, I can see that my profile changed shape a bit too. The "dropping" didn't take away all my stomach/breathing discomfort, just a little of it. But it felt like my pelvis was going to break in half!

The only way I knew about my last baby dropping was that I could breathe easier.

you feel like you have a bowling ball between your legs?
