This is SO not like me!I have never had low fluid, and baby has never dropped until 1 or 2 weeks before it's born!I cannot have this baby in 2 weeks!Not in 4 weeks at very least!I'm not too thrilled with living in this discomfort for 8 more weeks, but I highly prefer that to a baby in NICU.
To top it all off, DH is working today, AND it's pouring rain, AND the van battery is dead cos a kid left a door open....BLAH!I'm gonna go cry some more...
Well, all you can do is just take things moment by moment, rest as much as you can and drink drink drink. Try not to worry too much about PTL and low fluid and whatever else, at least until you have more info.
FWIW, a friend of mine had her baby drop early like that with her second pregnancy, and she didn't go into PTL. She was mighty uncomfortable for those last few weeks, though. But she weathered it fine.

This was dh's first prenatal this pg and mw specifically said he needs to be more involved,helpful, and supportive.She also said we've got to work out our crap before we can have a good labor.haha.Pretty much-I have to work it out, cos he's too oblivious and has no attention span,and doesn't care,unless it's about making him feel better,But THAT's a whole other thread!
