I think the baby has dropped as I am doing some serious waddling today. DD dropped about the same time as well, 33 weeks.

Any waddlers out there?

Mindfully parenting DD 8/04 & DS 11/08, Human beings are the only mammals who do not nurse their offspring to full term.

Im definetly waddling, but I dont think the baby has dropped. My son never dropped until my water broke and I was in full active labor.

I know I should cherish these times, but I am so ready for this pregnancy to be OVER!

I am a total waddler. It is worse when the baby is head down, and then the pelvic pressure is awful, and as much as I want him/her to stay head down it's nice to have the break occasionally from the pressure. The waddling I think comes from how much the joints are loosening up. I hit 34 weeks tomorrow and the countdown is on :

completely behind ya on this one! Today I all of a sudden realized that my boobs are not resting on the top of my stomach anymore. Also, if I stand up straight and look down, I cannot see my own toes.

I'm 35 weeks and definitely waddling, but I think a lot of that has to do with the hip/outer thigh/inner thigh pain. The SPD isn't so bad right now, and that's cause this babe hasn't dropped. I'd like babe to drop though. I am so ready to be done.

She dropped sometime this week! It's not really helping the spd much, but surprisingly is doing great things for our "love" life! I guess some swelling is a good thing!

I am 32 weeks and have been waddling for awhile now. I think I have a very weak pelvic floor.

I am definitely waddling, but not because she has dropped. I think it is due to back pain and SPD. Although, the PT for the SPD did WONDERS. My PT told me to walk slowly and with small steps. I know that contributes to the waddling.

I waddle due to extreme back/leg/pelvic pain.

I hate the waddling comments. It makes me want to kill.

I am not waddling due to the joys of motherhood A*&#^@*!
