that feeling you get when you're about to start, or on your period...when you feel like your insides are going to fall out. well, yesterday and today i've been feeling that...and the feeling of bowling ball between the legs...


does that mean baby's dropping? or just getting bigger? 


i'd love to have some opinions and your experiences!

Well...I honestly don't really remember what its like to have a period! It's been too long! By the time this kiddo is born I'll have had one period in the past two years. I can comment on the bowling ball feeling, though! As uncomfortable as it is, its normal. Just baby dropping. smile.gif

That's exactly how I feel lately. I feel that 'about to start your period', letting go feeling too!! I keep thinking my water is going to break or the rest of my mucus plug is going to fall out. It seems like, though, the days I feel like that I have nothing to show for it but then days I have no feelings like that and have no ctrx I will find a random glob. I've given up trying to guess what all is going on...other than labor soon-ish.

I was getting that too over the weekend and now I can suddenly eat a huge meal again. So yeah, I'd say it's Baby dropping lower.
