This is my sixth pregnancy, so I know things are looser than they have been in previous pregnancies, but I definitely have felt my baby "drop". My suspicions were confirmed last week when I had an unexpected u/s and the tech could not even get a good picture of the baby's head because he was SO low...
If your low baby is causing you discomfort, try getting on knees and elbows and doing some pelvic tilts. This should cause baby to back out of the pelvis due to gravity, and should give you some relief. I use this technique when I get into bed at night and lie down immediately afterward. It has helped me get some much-needed rest! I recommend it to lots of my clients (I'm a doula) and they thank me everytime! I wish I could take credit for it, but I learned it from Penny Simkin!!
